This is without a doubt a book everybody needs! The odds of getting hit by a bus are 495,000 to 1. But the odds that you’re going to die someday?... Exactly. For most of us just the thought of writing a will can be a daunting task but there are a host of other important things we should have in order.

IN CASE YOU GET HIT BY A BUS: How to Organize Your Life Now for When You’re Not Around Later is an easy-to-follow guide designed to help readers take control of modern life’s practical details. Abby Schneiderman, Adam Seifer, and Gene Newman will talk about what you really need to plan for in terms of tying up the loose ends of your home, money, health, and memories that often get overlooked but are hugely important in the event of an unexpected crisis.

The book is designed to help people manage when they are unexpectedly faced with difficult personal and financial decisions on someone else’s behalf. As a leading life planning digital platform, Everplans has spent years educating people on how to get a handle on the unpleasant but inevitable decisions that just about everyone will need to make at some point. Breaking the tasks down into three levels, from the most urgent (like granting access to passwords) to the technical (creating a manual for the systems in your home), to the nostalgic (assembling a living memory), this clear, digestible book is a reference tool that readers can turn to time and time again when navigating seemingly daunting circumstances. 

Readers will learn how to: 

  • Navigate difficult conversations about sensitive subjects with loved ones
  • Create a plan for accessing passwords for accounts associated with your day-to-day life
  • Document all your assets using a simple financial blueprint
  • Gain a full understanding of all the medical directives and legal documents you may need––including Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Trusts 
  • Establish every detail about your home and vehicles
  • Create an advance directive that articulates your wishes for end-of-life medical treatments and designates an individual to ensure those wishes are honored
  • Assemble a living memory complete with photos, recipes, and significant stories 
  • Plan funeral arrangements and remembrances and even write your own obituary
  • Clean up all the skeletons in your closet
