Staff book review from Donna Mueller: The Executor’s Guide

July 1, 2019

Book Review on The Executor’s Guide: Settling a Loved One’s Estate or Trust, 8th edition 
Mary Randolph, J.D. 

This may not seem to be the most exciting book a person could recommend, but it may be one of the most valuable books a person could read. 

At some point in your life, you may be asked to be an estate executor for a parent, spouse, child, or friend; or, you might be a beneficiary. You also may be in a position of organizing your own affairs and evaluating the need for an executor for your own estate. In any of these scenarios you will find it helpful to be prepared. It may be an honor bestowed upon you, but there is a lot more to it than you might imagine. 

NOLO’s Executor’s Guide walks you through this experience step by step. 

Do yourself a favor. Read it now before you need it. Help yourself and those you care about understand and appreciate the intricacies of managing someone’s estate and the patience and understanding required from all parties involved. 

Donna is a reference assistant at our Bainbridge Branch. She is currently reading Left Neglected by Lisa Genova.
