Insurance Logic uniquely demonstrates the value of human capital when choosing any insurance policy.

Written by financial experts Moshe A. Milevsky and Aron A. Gottesman, it explains how converting human capital into financial capital is far more beneficial than relying on the latter alone. The book explores this approach in nine chapters. Each of the first six provides specific information about different types of insurance policies, while the remaining three discuss the details involved in dealing with insurance companies, insurance fraud, and other related matters.

Well-researched, composed in a comprehensive manner and interspersed with helpful diagrams, Insurance Logic is a guide designed to help you make sound, informed choices as an insurance buyer, and protect not only your capital, but you and your loved ones.
