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
