This was for a paralegal class I took because I had to have it on a particular day, I had no interest in the subject. Come to find out, it's a fascinating and useful topic. This book does a great job of breaking down the legal concepts into digestible parts for non-lawyers. It does this while giving things a very thorough treatment, including variations in state laws.

This book was required for a class. And being straight-forward, this is not the particular area of law that I'm interested in. That being said, the book is well-organized and easy to follow. If you don't need it as a required text, I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in crafting a will and the legal processes around it.

This edition is exactly like 7th edition. I compared my class's required 7th edition to this, and ended up purchasing this for only $13 bucks. If you are required to get 7th edition for class, just save your money and buy this instead.

Book is in excellent condition, like new, except for a few scuff on the outside cover. I am very pleased with the purchase experience. The only concern that I had was that I was not able to trace the sipping and it took a long time to get to me. However it did come in the specified shipping window. Excellent price
