I'm looking for an up to date book, or book/video combo, that would
enable an elderly couple to create their own efficient and legally
valid Living Trust.  They do not own a computer so no software
programs please.  Also, no DVD's.  The book should be simple and easy
to follow, and contain forms that they can copy and use.

First of all, I must note that Google Answers provides general
information, not professional legal advice.  Any do-it-yourself legal
product carries with it a certain amount of risk that the user will
misunderstand some aspect of it.  If your friends do choose to make
their own living trust, I would strongly urge them to have their
documents reviewed by a qualified attorney in their area.


As for a book that meets your criteria, I recommend:

"Make Your Own Living Trust" by Denis Clifford (Nolo Press).

"Make Your Own Living Trust includes all the forms you need -- as
tear-outs or on CD-ROM -- to create your own trust, plus step-by-step
instructions for filling them out."

You can also search inside this book on Amazon:

I have personally used books from Nolo Press, and I've found them to
be excellent.  They are well-written and easy to understand.  They are
also constantly updated.  More about Nolo Press:
