I used an earlier edition of this book as an undergraduate years ago and remembered liking it, so I bought a later edition for personal review. It has good coverage of principles of risk management as well as a review of the different types of insurance (for example, different types of life insurance (whole, term, etc.), with review of the benefits of each). Overall, for anyone who wants a review of risk management, an edition of this book is useful.

Had to use this for a college course. Basics of insurance, that is all. Good for course that requires it.

The book was exactly how it was described. It had no highlights and it looked brand new. I did fast shipping and I recieved it in less than a week. I was very impressed.
