The reviews are in! 

The Kirkus Review says A History of Charitable Gift Planning “delivers a succinct helping of historical illumination.”  The review notes that readers will find “intriguing insights … many details are extremely telling.”  In particular, marketing examples from the 1920s are “likely to come as a revelation.”  “Aside from the obvious takeaway of learning about charitable gift planning, the volume provides a further understanding of various periods and how beliefs from those eras have helped shape the present day.” See the full review at  https://www.kirkusreviews.com/book-reviews/ronald-brown/history-charitable-gift-planning/.

Conrad Teitell, who first presented at the Conference on Gift Annuities in 1968, pubished an article on A History of Charitable Gift Planning in his leading newsletter Taxwise Giving in November 2017.  See the full Taxwise Giving article (PDF).
