This book will impact the way you think about your assets, values and children. Now is the time to take action; it could save your children from paying excessive estate taxes or suffering a drawn-out probate. More importantly, what you do today could ensure your values are passed down for generations; leave the legacy you intended to leave. -- Loral Langemeier ""mother, master coach, wealth strategist, best-selling author of the Millionaire Maker book series and founder and CEO of the wealth building community LiveOutLoud.com""

Format: Paperback
Now, I'm not a lawyer. Nor do I play one on TV.

I am, however, a parent who has two daughters she loves more than life itself.

You know what? Sometimes love is not enough. We can't just hug our kids and play with them and go to the beach and read books and do all that fun stuff we love to do.

We have to work to provide. We have to house, clothe, feed, and protect our children. One sphere where we've got to do this -- and one, quite frankly, that I suck at -- is in the legal arena.

That's why when the opportunity to read a review copy of Wear Clean Underwear: A Fast, Fun, Friendly and Essential Guide to Legal Planning For Busy Parents came up, I jumped at it. This is an area I don't know much about, and I wanted to fill the gaps in my knowledge.

Author Alexis Martin Neely delivered -- and then some. She brought up questions I'd never even thought about: what happens if the people you appoint as your kids guardians die? what happens if the guardian you appoint really doesn't want to be the guardian after all? what happens if you have people fighting over your kids? what happens if your kids are left without much in the way of financial resources when you step off this mortal coil?

Neely gets you thinking, first and foremost, and that's critical. Much of what you will read here is the same advice you'll find in estate planning guides -- but rendered comprehensible, in easy to read language. I understood this book -- I didn't feel stupid or poorly educated, trying to figure out what legal terms meant. Neely asks the questions we're all terrified to ask.

There's a choose your own adventure feel to the book: If you decide to do X, go to page 55 and see what happens. I liked this.

This book definitely lacks substance. The title and description lead you to believe you're getting a full picture of estate planning for your kids. If that's what you're looking for, this isn't the book for you.

Positives of the book:
- It scares you in to taking action immediately. The stories are heart wrenching, and caused me to put guardianship papers in place the next day.
- Points you towards resources (Family Planning Attorneys & websites to create free legal documents).
- Talks about ways to leave a legacy (i.e. writing letters/recording CDs to your kids in case something happens to you)
- It's a quick read - I'm a mother to a 7-month old and the book only took me 1 hour to read, for which I was grateful!

Negatives:
- The book doesn't give any actual information about estate planning beyond saying you should meet with a lawyer to draft documents.
- The book reads like an advertisement for Family Planning Attorneys (I'm not sure, but it feels like this is a group with some kind of affiliation to the author). I agree that an important topic like caring for your children once you're gone is one that should be handled by an expert, but the book doesn't give any further options besides this specific type of attorney.
- The stories are repetitive - it reads like a "Choose your own adventure" book, which means that a lot of the content is repeated word-for-word.

One more thing that annoyed me is that all the online resources given in the book are created by the author and her company, so if you want different opinions about the topic, you won't get it from the websites.

Incidentally, we did request a meeting with a Family Planning Attorney to see if they could help us. Although the website said someone would contact us in 72-hours, we haven't heard anything in over a week.

Format: Paperback
Neely uses stories in a friendly non-confronting manner, to help parents face some of the difficult situations that could unroll in life. The scenarios demonstrate the level of detail that parents should and can plan for well in advance, so that their kids do not become victims of the accidents and chances of life. The book is fast reading and fun. Alexis also teaches you how to plan for family wealth for future generations. The book is a must read for parents with young children, and it also serves as a vital guide for parents with adult children, who wish to leave a meaningful and beneficial legacy for their families.

The book assumes US laws and these may not be correct for other countries. Nevertheless it raises universal questions that many parents might not have considered and should follow up with respect to the laws in their own countries.

I was a little skeptical reading it at first, thinking that it might be too heavy of a topic and filled with too much legal jargon, but I should have known better from the fun title, WearCleanUnderwear! This is a MUST read - quick, intelligent and to-the-point. Alexis sheds graphic light about the necessity of family wealth planning - in a down-to-earth, understandable way. The three parables were enlightening, even for those of us who have worked with her tools and system. She writes her stories elegantly, making them interesting and with options to skip around. I like the way the book folds into itself making it an easy and straightforward read. It is certainly a call-to-action.
