Sadly, too many people have had the experience of Abby Schneiderman: Her brother was killed in a car accident, and the family was left with no idea of what he wanted—he hadn’t left any plans behind. No will, no health proxy, and no one, including his wife, knew his passwords. Out of this tragedy came the focus of Everplans, a digital company that Abby cofounded to help people of all ages organize their lives and legacy now—so that their loved ones won’t have to later.
Drawing on the wealth of experience from Abby and the Everplans team, this book presents a clearly designed and easy-to-follow program to help even the most disorganized reader take control of modern life’s burgeoning mess of on- and off-line details. Breaking the job down into three levels, from the most urgent (granting access to passwords, outlining a financial blueprint) to the technical (creating a manual for the systems in your home) to the nostalgic (assembling a living memory complete with photos, recipes, significant stories), In Case You Get Hit by a Bus takes the anxiety and stress out of putting your life in order. With a wealth of information to cover just about any contingency, it will help you leave the best parting gift you could ever imagine.
