Library Journal Review

Attorneys Plotnick and Leimberg have substantially updated their clear, comprehensive manual for executors and trustees of an estate, originally published in 1986. The new edition shines in its use of sample documents and checklists. It also addresses the psychological aspects of death and of being an executor. While not a technical treatise, this guide conveys enough detail to assist readers. The authors stress the importance of forming an estate settlement team of experts and suggest how to hire them. The only problem, as with any consumer legal guide, is the differing state laws. The authors might consider selected state-specific editions and issuing software for the book, as some tax return programs have done. Overall, however, this is an excellent and handy book.
