I rarely read books about celebrities and their stories. Even though I read a lot, it is also rare for me to mention a book I’ve read and enjoyed so much in so many conversations as this one: 101 Biggest Estate Planning Mistakes by Herbert Nass.

Being naturally curious, I also like to keep an eye on how investments in “Bonds for the Long Run”, “Balanced Portfolios for the Long Run” and “Alternative Investments for the Long Run” would do. Siegel’s […]
