Praise for The Rich Die Richer and You Can Too "As a satisfied client I recommend that you read Bill Zabel’s book because it has useful tax advice no matter what your net worth may be." —George Soros "For most of us, the subject of estate planning has a number of things working against it: it’s complicated, unexciting, and even off-putting (‘I can’t take it with me and I’d rather not go’). Yet this is a subject of huge importance and potential for anyone who has worked hard and has something to show for his or her effort. Kudos, then, for Bill Zabel’s trenchant, readable, and relevant book." — Irvine O. Hockaday, Jr. President and CEO, Hallmark Cards, Inc. "Bill Zabel has managed to turn his how-to on writing a will into a crackling book about the wills and estates of celebrities such as Picasso, Doris Duke, Jackie Kennedy, Pamela Harriman, and Howard Hughes! Here’s a book you can’t put down because it’s so much fun … and you learn something important at the same time. What more could anyone want?" —Lesley Stahl " This is an eminently practical guide to questions that are enormously important — for individuals, their families, and the causes that they care about. Wise planning should be seen as an inescapable responsibility, not as an option. As Mr. Zabel’s witty and well-written book makes clear, confronting these life-and-death issues with sophistication as well as compassion can also be highly satisfying." —William G. Bowen, President, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation; former President, Princeton University "Bill Zabel is brilliant, ingenious, funny, and humane. This valuable book—which is so much like its author—will entertain and benefit all who read it." —S. Daniel Abraham, founder, Slim-Fast Foods; President and CEO, Thompson Medical Company, Inc.
