The book can be read in less then an hour. Most of the book is instructions for every possible asset situation and forms. There are detailed instructions for each type of asset and how to fill out the trust forms.
My wife and I put our house in trust, as well as all of my savings accounts and stocks. I preferred to put the forms on word processing. No problem filing the real estate trust with the registry of deeds and no problems with the banks with the savings accounts. No problems anywhere. Every detail is there in the book.
I now feel comfortable that my children will receive their assets without any unnecessary cost and on a timely basis.
When we moved to Texas in 1981, I asked several people about setting up a living trust. I was assured that unlike some other states, the probate system in Texas was simple and straight forward, and that a living trust was unecessary. Recently the media has had articles on the corrupt probate system in Texas. However as the articles suggest, it is a fair system, anyone who has to deal with the probate system, rich or poor, is apt to to find all/most of the estate going to the lawyers.

This was not a new book.
It was used and had writing in it. Also, parts were underlined with magic marker. WORST OF ALL IT REEKED OF CIGARETTE SMOKE
