The purpose of the book is to provide insurance practitioners, consumers, and students with definitions of common insurance terms in both the property/casualty and life/health insurance industries. The unique feature of the book is that many of the definitions contain detailed explanations of coverage provided by certain types of insurance and/or examples that illustrate how a particular coverage works. The book should be helpful to insurance agents and to new insurance agency/company personnel. It will also be helpful to consumers to use as a reference guide to better understand insurance products the consumer needs. Finally, it will be useful as a reference guide for students in business courses.
