Brackenridge's Medical Selection of Life Risks has long been recognized as the leading reference book on insurance medicine. The fifth edition provides a comprehensive guide to life expectancy for underwriters and clinicians involved in the life insurance industry. Extensively revised and expanded the new edition reflects developments in life and healthcare insurance as well as medicine. There is expanded coverage of disability issues and full account is taken of new developments in genetics and gene therapy and also recent technology and regulatory and compliance issues. Part I deals with the principles of life and disability insurance and the logistics of life underwriting. Part II is devoted to a systematic clinical appraisal of underwriting problems, mainly relating to life insurance but also, where appropriate, to disability, critical illness and long term care insurance.

Industry Reviews

'... this book can be recommended as being emminently fit for its purpose.' - Reference Reviews

Reviews of Previous Editions

'All contributors are to be congratulated for producing a book which is readable, up-to-date and thought provoking, as well as being an invaluable guide to underwriting practice. Every life office should have at least one copy - and every underwriter and every actuary should know where it is.' - Journal of the Institute of Actuaries (Review of 3rd edition)

'This underwriter cannot imagine anyone choosing to go on underwriting medical risks without handy access to a copy of Medical Selection of Life Risks. On second thought better buy two. The first one is apt to get dog-eared fairly quickly.' - On the Risk (Review of 4th edition)
