The Artist Estate: A Handbook for Artists, Executors, and Heirs
By Loretta Würtenberger
Andy Warhol memorably said that "death can really make you look like a star," but death in itself is not a guarantee of the relevance of an artist. What is of crucial importance is the proper management structure for the posthumous preservation and development of an artist's estate. The Artist Estate, a handbook written by Loretta Würtenberger, presents the possible legal frameworks and appropriate financing models available in this situation, as well as the proper handling of interest from the market, museums and academia.
Excellent Sheep: The Miseducation of the American Elite and the Way to a Meaningful Life

Now he argues that elite colleges are turning out conformists without a compass.
