The author provides answers to the most basic questions people ask about risk management on investments in home and auto insurance, covering subjects such as understanding what you're really getting for your money, knowing whether you're being treated fairly, and learning how to minimize the cost of protection. The book offers detailed step-by-step instructions on how to read and make sense of your homeowners or car insurance policy, clear guidelines on how to file a claim and make a complaint effectively, and how to avoid being over-insured.

The author of this well-written overview is vice president of consumer affairs for the Insurance Information Institute, a property and casualty insurance industry trade association. Hence, although there is a great deal of useful information in this book, it is not consumer-oriented in the same sense that Ralph Nader and Wesley J. Smith's Winning the Insurance Game ( LJ 9/1/90) is. In discussing issues such as auto insurance rate setting and insurance fraud, for example, Taylor suggests that consumers are hurt by anything that impacts negatively on the insurance industry. Nevertheless, this book is not primarily a polemic and can be recommended with reservations as a supplementary source for public libraries.
