Here at last is a genuinely helpful consumer guide that shows you how to figure out quickly and easily your personal insurance needs and save money in the process. How to Get Your Money's Worth in Home and Auto Insurance provides all of the answers to the most basic questions people ask--plus the ones people wish they had asked--about risk management on two of the biggest investments they are ever likely to make. In her foreword to the book, Linda Golodner, executive director of the National Consumers League, praises Taylor's efforts: Most consumers like to know what they're buying. When it's insurance, they want to be on a level playing field with agents and companies. This book is for them. Barbara Taylor cuts through a complex subject and gives consumers a resource for manpower. Additional endorsements come from an impressive cross-section of the nation's consumer protection advocates, including Susan Grant, president of the National Association of Consumer Agency Administrators; Harry Felder of the New York State AARP; and Brian Johnson, economic policy director of the Michigan Citizens' Lobby.
