KIRKUS REVIEW

Some sound, soundly disabusing facts about insurance are intended to show up the ways in which the good provider has haphazardly purchased policies which are not a real investment (except for the insurance company) and to show how he can avail himself of better insurance, with broader provisions, lower premiums and higher coverage. ""A sacred cow... with highpriced milk"", insurance has been well fattened on overcharges based on obsolescent mortality figures, on the high cost of borrowing- your own money, on so-called ""dividends""- Analyzing the types of companies (mutuals, stock life insurance, etc.) Hendershot offers a ""do-it-yourself"" type of plan which offers real protection at a cheaper price. A book for the established- or prospective- policy-holder.
