I just ran across a relatively new book on estate planning called “Crash Course in Estate Planning : The Essential Guide to Wills, Trusts, and Your Personal Legacy” by Michael Palermo. It’s published by AARP, so it may end up being targeted more toward retirees than to people like me (particularly the young kids angle), but it looks like it may be good background reading if nothing else. If anyone has read this, I’d love to hear your feedback. If not, it looks like my local library has a copy. I’ll report back once I’ve had a chance to look it over.
Update: Here’s my review of Crash Course in Estate Planning.
