    A truly useful, informative, and entertaining insurance book!

    I would normally never buy an insurance book, but I was having a lot of unanswered questions. This book has been so useful because it outlines all the basics of what you really do need and what you should not waste your money on. Plus, the author provides entertaining stories and anecdotes which help the reader understand the importance of each concept. It has already been so helpful to me in making insurance decisions and has saved me money and headaches. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is not insurance savvy- you will be by the time you read this book.
