Okay, no one plans
on getting hit by a bus, and the chances of it actually happening are pretty slim, but that's the point of this handy book: to plan for the unexpected. Sudden illness, injury, or even death leaves a lot of work in the hands of loved ones, but you can make it easier for them by organizing the essentials now
. Documenting important passwords; itemizing your assets; detailing care of your home, pets, and family; and even relaying last wishes…so much can be simplified with a little forethought and planning. By breaking down projects into easy steps, and laying out specific plans of attack for subjects like "Organizing Contacts," "Insurance,"
and "Heirlooms," In Case You Get Hit by a Bus
is a must-have for anyone who could use a little guidance—or a little kick in the pants—to get their affairs in order. (SM)
