Booklist Review

The current do-it-yourself craze is based around the consumer's desire to simplify life by cutting out expensive fees (read lawyers), while gaining a sense of accomplishment by maneuvering through a tricky jungle of legalese. Anosike is author of other how-to books on estate planning with living trusts, do-it-yourself probate, and the formation of nonprofit corporations (all without lawyers), and these two volumes pretty much follow the same format. In How to Plan Your 'Total' Estate . . . , he lays out in detail what estate planning is, why you should leave a will and what types there are, and step-by-step directions on how to draw up the will and what it should look like. He even goes into the always reviled tax problems in wills associated with larger assets and how to avoid seeing descendants get big chunks grabbed by the government. Comprehensive appendixes go into the specifics of how the probate laws are different in each of the 50 states, and Anosike anticipates and answers virtually every conceivable question a do-it-yourselfer might pose. The National Home Mortgage Reduction Kit follows the same step-by-step format but offers more eye-popping information on how much less the average homeowners could be paying and own their dwelling outright quicker without much financial hardship. With rules come exceptions, and Anosike describes situations when accelerating mortgage payments doesn't work, but there are numerous charts and tables that show the wisdom and the reality surrounding these issues. There's even a helpful glossary of real estate terminology. --Joe Collins
