    This review is from: Wills of the Rich and Famous: A Fascinating Glimpse at the Legacies of Celebrities (Hardcover)

    This reprint of an earlier edition contains more current demises and devises, including the wills of Elvis, Jerry and Diana. These peeks at how the glitterati and the grandees shuffled off their mortal coils and bequeathed their worldy possessions is revealing, amusing, sometimes noble and heartening and other times demeaning and peevish. These wills may not be for you, but they remind you that we all enter and leave this plane in a similar, if not identical fashion and the stuff, such as it is, that we accumulate in this realm, is no more than what dreams are made of, but, in our society, must be attended to. This is a snapshot of how some of us attend to that chore.

    I recently gave several of these books as father’s day gifts and had wonderful responses. The book created quite a few heated discussions about philosophies of inheritance,charity, greed and personal expression after death. The book was entertaining to read while at the same time educational in exposing the simple errors many famous people have made in creating faulty wills.
