2.0 out of 5 stars Not for insurance practioners 11 Oct 2004
By A Customer
Format:Vinyl Bound|Verified Purchase
I was looking for an introductory guide to the London Insurance Market and this wasn't it. If you are a member of the public that requires explanation of your insurance policy then this may be for you, but be mindful that it is written from an American perspective. As a new recruit to a Lloyds syndicate I needed to become acquainted with all the terminology used within the market in order to understand slips and conmmunicate with underwriters. I have now bought the FT insurance dictionary instead because it covers what I need.

3.0 out of 5 stars Slightly incomplete 15 Aug 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl Bound
For general knowledge of insurance terms I guess this is an adequate dictionary and nevertheless needed for understanding insurance terms. I find however that being IN the insurance business as a newcomer and needing to have all my insurance words defined, this dictionary lacks many terms used, at least on the Life insurance side of it, so leaves me grasping for other sources and references to find these words which should be defined in this dictionary in the first place.

2.0 out of 5 stars Thick Junk 24 Oct 2001
By Bryan D Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl Bound
I have been in the insurance industry 15 years and just decided to buy this as an addition for my work desk. I rarely open the book, however, anytime I go to look up a coverage definition it is not listed. This book is of NO use to me. Not really sure who would use this.............a person who hands out maps at the Auto Club who may need to look up a word or two?

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent reference book 1 Sep 2000
By H Craig - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl Bound
This is an American based book but covers every imaginable insurance term, in every sector of the finance/insurance industry. It not only provides definitions of terms but broadley defines the cover provided under different types of insurance. This is a must for any professional in the financial services/insurance industry as a great reference.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful little reference 23 Nov 2010
By Mal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl Bound|Verified Purchase
As someone who works with property and casualty insurance a lot, this has been a great reference. It appears more focused on that than life or health insurance, but certainly has some terms from all areas.

Occasionally some definitions get bogged down in legalese or finance-speak, but if you read them carefully it's pretty easy to get a good idea. One thing I also love is the dictionary covers a lot of tangentially related teams that can frequently come up in an insurance context.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful for the Insurance Professional Newbie 2 Jun 2007
By Daniel Hurley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl Bound|Verified Purchase
I find this a pretty complete reference book for someone new to the insurance side such as a young or new risk manager. The definitions are fairly indepth but still short and to the point. To critique the book severly, as some other reviewers have, I suggest reccommending another reference source, within your review, that is considered better. I would be most anxious to take a look at it since it would allow a fair comparison.
