Retired math teacher James Metz was helping his executor prepare his personal affairs when he realized he wanted to share what he learned in the process: it’s essential to plan, now, for when we leave this earth. In Help Your Executor Before You Leave: The Book You Didn’t Know You Needed, Metz outlines specific instructions and provides detailed lists that will enable you to get this all-important task done ASAP. Covering topics ranging from preparing vital documents to choosing an executor, the book focuses on how being proactive in this way can help alleviate some of the stress at the end of life. “Thinking about and dealing with death is a difficult subject for many. Some may neglect the process that with just a little pre-planning can make life down the road — when things are in the thick of difficulty — much easier,” he notes.
