Review:

"Friedlander's approach in this well-written, helpful book is to focus on what employers can do to minimize workers' compensation claims in the first place. He believes that by creating a "culture of caring," employers can effectively save money on workers' compensation, because "that culture will maximize your productivity, efficiencies, and profits." ...This revelation alone makes the book valuable, along with several eye-opening interviews with workers' compensation experts. Employers will gain insight into such key issues as claims and premium fraud, abuse of the system, loss control and reducing the cost of claims. A thoughtful book that could actually save employers some serious money." Kirkus Review 

"During my time as CEO of the New York State Insurance Fund, Adam always displayed a keen insight into the intricate workings of the state compensation system. He is a true comp professional who understands the needs of the system's stakeholders; policyholders, associations, injured workers and policy makers. His primer is a must read for those involved in our industry. Ken Ross, CEO/President, Pinnacol Assurance 

"How to Save Big on Workers' Compensation is interesting, informative and a must read book. Adam uses his vast knowledge, candid insights including interviews with true experts in workers' compensation to discuss issues related to fraud, claims, safety and loss control. The book focuses on safety prevention as a major linchpin of effective cost control resulting in lowering premium costs. The reader should benefit from this unique review of important issues." Donald T. DeCarlo, J.D. CEO AMCOMP, Commissioner of NYS Insurance Fund, 1997-2009 

"Adam offers a number of key concepts - such as managment-employee relations and a culture of caring - that are very straight forward and really work to control workers' compensation costs. His interviews with industry experts deliver the information in an easy-to-understand, real-world style. This is a great book for virtually every American business." Dennis Otmaskin, CPCU Regional President, Northeast & Mid-Atlantic Harleysville Group 

"Adam's a serious professional and a clear-headed writer." Steve Acunto, Editor & Publisher of Insurance Advocate 

"I am a journalist and consultant in workers compensation. I found this book to be an excellently conceived and realized introduction to workers comp and the dedicated professionals who work in it. The book is a solid contribution to the workers compensation literature. While some of the content is New York specific (such as self-pays) can be usefully read across the country.
Some of the chapters present insights that are extremely hard to find elsewhere. The real treasure inside this book is the interviews with workers comp professionals. They are very revealing. They give the reader a very close-up view of how safety and claims professionals think, what they perceive as important, and how they go about their business. I t is useful for anyone in the country who wants to get closer to how professionals, who drive the workers comp system day by day, think and act." Peter F. Rousmaniere, Journalist"I had an opportunity to read How to $ave Big on Workers' Compensation. It is exceptional! I especially like the way you started the book with Establishing A Culture of Caring!" Scott Addis, The Addis Group
