    Not useful

    Most pages are useless unless a person has numerous bank accounts. Pages I needed are not included. Felt the information requested was out of date with today's economic investments, etc. should have sent it back.

  2. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Useless

    Useless, unless you're a billionaire. Not what I needed. Pages and pages of irrelevant information. Do not get this for your end of life packet of information for your family to use after you pass.

    This product was a total disappointment (100%)

    I should have sent this item back when I received it in October 2016 (Order #0669). I arrived with several other items. The other Items met, or exceeded my expectations....which has always been the case with my orders from Har. Car. I work full-time and have and active life and it was not worth my time and energy to return it to you. The book could have been written by a 9th Grader. It is out of touch/date in that it gives page upon page of space for Savings and Loan Accounts (there are only a handful of S&L's in the South East U.S. It gives no pages for email accounts and access information. I think that you should pull this item from your product offering. While it may have been inexpensive, it was worthless to me.

    Rich People Book

    This book is good.....for people that are rich. It has too many pages on the same thing....bank accounts,land,insurance, etc. I would give as a gift to rich friends...if I had any.

  5. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Look for something better!

    I returned this book. It did not fit my needs. It was poorly designed - too many Life Insurance pages ( 10 ! ) and not enough of other subjects.

    What My Family Should Know

    Not what I expected. Sent it back for a credit. I would not give this to any of my friends as a gift.

  7. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    do not buy

    useless for me. to many of each subject page. did not have many items that I want and need. to lazy to send it back so I have just thrown out my money.

  8. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Did not like it

    to many pages of each kind. Did not have any pages of most things I needed. Useless for me.

  9. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Not for average people, has useless space for assets.

    I am going to return it. Found it totally useless.

  10. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    Not as I needed..

    This wasn't what an everyday family needs. If you have a lot of investment, money and the like, you will love it.. Nice book but not for my family..

  11. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Not what I expected. Many, many repetitive pages.

    I sent this back. Not useful for me.

  12. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    NOT WHAT I THOUGHT IT WAS!

    THIS LOG IS NOT DESIGNED TO LIST YOUR PERSONAL FINANCIAL LIFE ACTIVITIES THAT YOU WANT YOUR HEIRS TO KNOW ABOUT, AS I THOUGHT I WAS GETTING. IT WOULD BE HELPFUL IF YOU HAD INTERESTS IN BANKING ACTIVITIES, SUCH AS ONLY STOCKS AND BONDS.

  13. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Don't judge a book by its cover

    Thought this was a very useful and sensible way to display helpful information to my family.

  14. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Not what I expected, will be returning

    I don't have but 1 insurance policy, not pages and pages of them

  15. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Not worth a sou

    It had no pages for important categories and many pages for categories where few were needed.In other words it's not very useful and gets thick by putting many copies of pages that you don't need.

  16. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    What My Family Should Know book

    It has useful information but I was disappointed in the amount of space dedicated to stocks, bonds, investments, etc. I have never had the money to invest in those things. I would have liked more room for family information such as ancestors, etc. I also would have liked room for final wishes and information on will; where to locate important papers.

  17. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    I would buy this book again if needed

    This book is being used to outline and personalize indivicual plans.

  18. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    what to know

    delivery was fast

  19. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    waste of money

    this book does not provide areas for needed and useful information while providing too much for other information. Does anyone really need 7 pages to list their insurance policy information or 8 pages to list safe deposit boxes? This book is a joke.

  20. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    What a waste!

    This product is a joke. Whoever put it together apparently knows nothing about the type of information needed for survivors of a loved one's death. Who needs umpteen sheets for noting insurance policies, bonds? Would have returned this joke of a book, but it would only have added more waste of time and money, so did not bother.

  21. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    not enough details

    returned it

  22. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Repeat Purchase for a Gift!

    I purchased this book a few years ago as it has space for all the information your family should know upon your illness or death. It provides places fir information you might not think of. I found it so helpful that I purchased one for my sister last year and this current purchase was for a gift for a friend who thought it sounded like something she could use.

  23. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Must Have for Every Family

    Book contains a complete listing of important information that every family leader should record in one place, covering financial, health, last wishes, all areas which should be part of planning for some day when we will pass away.

  24. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    It's useful to organize necessary data.

    It's well-organized & easy to use.

  25. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    A complete waste of money

    Unless you are a millionaire, with money stashed away in lots of different banks, stocks, CDs etc this is a complete waste of money. My own mother just passed away, and dealing with her humble estate has been a challenge. I thought a book with a title like this one would help me make handling my own affairs after I'm gone easier for my kids. Wrong. This went right into the recycle bin.

  26. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    For one with out bonds and investments etc. It was useless.

    Called for a return sticker, got it, and all info has been lost and I am out the money I paid for the product and shipping.

  27. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    What My Family Should Know

    This is handy for me, too. I like having all financial information in one place.

  28. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    More complete than necessary.

    It's good to have this for the next generation.

  29. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Every family should have this item.

    This was a gift for my husband who handles all the finances in out household. Since he is 14 years older then me I got this for him to fill in so that if anything happens to him I will know where our finances are and what kind. Ex. IRA's, Loans etc.

  30. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Not great

    I was hoping for a place to keep all useful information, but this book is not it!!! It has 16 pages for Life Insurance - enough for 48 policies! Who has 48 insurance policies?? Places for 20 bank accounts, 4 pages for savings accounts, 4 pages for credit union accounts, 10 pages for securities(40 accounts), 4 pages for mutual funds(16 funds), 6 pages for savings bonds (27 spaces per page), 8 pages for safe deposit boxes,8 pages for businesses owned, 8 pages for property owned. No place for important passwords, on-line accounts, or credit cards. Useless to me!!

  31. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Not for the average family.

    I am looking for a book that will allow me to pass on to my children and grandchildren information about the family. Names, birthdates, death dates etc. This book is not it. Who has pages of life insurance policies? Not the average family. I ordered 2. One for me and one for my husband. These are useless to both of us.

  32. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    not what I thought it would be

    this product is cheap and not as useful as I thought it was going to be I would not have bought it if I had know how it was designed inside

  33. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    A lot of things not included

    Many subjects are not addressed. Too many pages for different subjects Contents poorly designed.

  34. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    Disappointed

    Overall good idea, but there are way too many pages for money market, 401K, savings bonds etc. How many insurance companies does a person need? Should be more room for credit cards, bank accounts, savings accounts, heirlooms, who to give what to.

  35. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    A MUST HAVE !!

    Everyone should have one of these, it will surely make life easier for those looking after you. This is a great book and can be very helpful especially if one doesn't have a will of any kind.

  36. star star star star star 5.0 out of 5 stars

    Estate Booklet

    This is an excellent product if you own your own home or estate and/or a business. If you have insurance and documents to keep track of. It should describe this better with the picture. It's not something I could use.

  37. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    Outdated

    The idea of this book is great and can serve so many purposes for any family. The data captured inside is a bit outdated. If updated, it would be the perfect gift.

  38. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Poor product

    Returning product. Room for 20 different bank accounts, 28 credit unions, 20 pages for securities, 7 pages for mutual funds, 12 pages (27 savings bonds to be entered per page) for savings bonds...that's 324 savings bonds....and it goes on from there.

  39. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Don't buy this product!

    Not designed for present times. Designed for use in 1950's. Very disappointed in product. Should not be for sale.

  40. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    Basic book- Good for basic knowlegde

    This is a basic book to show where accounts, properties etc are. Good for aging parents, or if you have children who you would like them to know where to obtain your information if you become ill or no longer "available". Some pages you may not use others you will. It was a great book for myself (single parent). No more guessing "where is this, where is that"

  41. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Highly disappointed with this product.

    Product didn't contain basic information I wanted my family to know as I don't own stocks etc. too many duplicated pages. The binder was badly damaged. would like to return but don't want to invest in more postage. Should have read reviews before purchasing.

  42. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    Great for those with aging parents

    It's hard to introduce this topic with aging parents, yet it's something everyone needs to know before they are gone. This is a book that you can sit down and fill out together with them, so that you have this info all in one place when they pass on. I highly recommend doing this! It will make everything so much easier during that difficult time!

  43. star star star empty_star empty_star 3.0 out of 5 stars

    Had what I needed

    This product had what I needed to get things set up for me and my family.

  44. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Headline was good

    There were too many pages of the same article; 48 spaces for life insurance policies! 80 securities, etc. this seemed to be a book for one persons specific needs. It was is not realistic.

  45. star star star star empty_star 4.0 out of 5 stars

    BOOK IS GREAT

    WAS GOOD FOR WHAT I NEED

  46. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Not for me.

    I don't like it at all since I don't have stocks and bonds, etc.

  47. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Too many pages for stuff I don't have

    Since I don't have stocks and bonds and am not in the business world, this does not work for me. However it would be good for the opposite kind of person.

  48. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Too much information

    Wanted a place to list everything that our family would need when our time comes. This book had 40 places for life insurance policies. Pages and pages of investments, brokerage info, and other information useless for everyday families. No place for personal property, jewelry, vehicles, etc. I returned both notebooks.

    This will be a good product to help our chldren go through our estate when we are no longer living. We are listing all assets, contact information and funeral plans, etc. At a difficult time,this should prove helpful.

    My funeral planning log

    This book was very helpful when mother in law died, the funeral planning went fast, she had what she wanted written in here, from the songs she wanted to the flowers she liked, and the color she like, the pallbearers she wanted, and the readings and songs she wanted, she knew what she was doing when she ordered this book, this book was very helpful for he family?

  58. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    This book is so out dated.

    This book really is of no use to me. No one uses saving book numbers, all you would need is the person login information to get what you need. I am sending this back.

  59. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    TOO much wiz and not enough bang

    I thought this would be helpful to leave in case I go before my husband. But it was so bulky and awkward. Too many of the same pages that did not even pertain to me. This would be good if I had many assets but I only have a few things and would like all this info packed into something that would be easy to read and get to the point.I would want it all in one place.

    A lot of duplication

    Nice idea but there were a lot of duplicate pages. As we start using it we will see if there is anything missing.

  65. star star empty_star empty_star empty_star 2.0 out of 5 stars

    Not what I was looking for-was [*]

    I returned these as they were not applicable to our family's needs.

  66. star empty_star empty_star empty_star empty_star 1.0 out of 5 stars

    Not what I expected

    I purchased many of these since it was a great idea but it wasn't what i thought - I returned all that I had not given out as gifts once I realized what it was. Again great idea, just not a complete recording of assests/personal info and too many of the same pages.
