by Thomas Young
Young has systematically put together a very valuable resource for the student looking for historical information about life insurance. From explaining what Life Insurance really is and some of the pertinent details about it origin and history Young explains in layperson terms what the different types of life insurance are and what owning those products can provide for the owner and the beneficiaries.
In later chapters of the book Young discusses taxes, reverse mortgages, wealth accumulations and disability benefits as they pertain to owning or purchasing life insurance. His definition of terms found in Appendix A of his book is a valuable tool to reference when trying to comprehend the terms and language used in life insurance contracts.
This is a good text to have in your library of resources. It can be referenced in confidence knowing the data is both accurate and reliably published.
