Let me start by saying that I do have some experience with risk management from a professional sense - I hold a CPCU, Assoc in Comm Underwriting, an Assoc in Risk Mgmt, worked for a major national ins carrier, and also use RM in my current professional as well.
The bottom line here is that this book is simply a mess. The author's have trouble explaining basic concepts, move too quickly into trying to provide real world examples before they solidify the concept, contradict themselves on definitions between chapters, and introduce complicated concepts for example the grossly inadequate statistics lessons in chapter 3 far too early when they should be focused on building a solid foundation of risk mgmt in general.
Quite simply the book is all over the place and it's unclear what purpose the author's are trying to achieve. It needs a complete rewrite! I bought the book for a basic risk mgmt class for my mba program - the book served to simply make the class more difficult than it needed to be. Barely used but good price. It looks like an old one but won't affect using.
