In the midst of grieving his mother’s death Scott Smith made agonizing, costly, and time-consuming mistakes regarding the execution of her will and division of her assets.  If he, a lawyer, was ill-equipped to handle the hundreds of unanticipated and inescapable details, how was the average person to manage?  

WHEN SOMEONE DIES provides a useful framework for everything from making funeral arrangements to handling organ donation to closing Facebook accounts..It answers many of the practical financial questions that pop up in the midst of grieving.

Scott Smith is a partner in Viant Capital, a San Francisco-based boutique investment bank and tech business incubator. When Someone Dies is his first book.
