"Culminates and extends the authors' extensive past published work on malpractice insurance. The book's clear organization allows the reader to easily find the connections between evidence and conclusions. It patiently explains institutional details, as well as the industry's legal andregulatory environment. A strength of the book is its presentation of extensive data developed by the authors and their institutions." --Inquiry
