Publisher's Summary

Insurance adjusters meet clients on the worst days of their lives, and they must be diplomatic, tactful, and ethical. The job is not only about returning phone calls and doing paperwork. Whether the case involves cargo damage, residential and business property damage, fire, fraud, burglary, or arson, it's the job of the adjuster to get to the bottom of things.

Author Jonathan L. Scott has spent more than thirty years as an adjuster. In a series of short stories, loosely based on actual insurance claims, he recalls navigating the human dimension of balancing a client's circumstances with policy requirements and the law-and it's never easy.

All adjusters investigate, evaluate, and settle claims, but the best ones are worth their weight in gold several times over. The bad ones, however, can cause huge problems for the public and their employers. If you've ever been curious about the work of an insurance adjuster, read on and find out how each claim becomes its own little adventure.

    Story
    "REAL LIFE STORIES"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES, I like all audiobooks that I can turn off and then pick right up again when I next start to drive. The narrator's voice was an easy listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Adjuster Stories?

    When the author got his speeding ticket. I have also received a ticket for going one mile over the speed limit.


    Which character – as performed by Joshua Bennington – was your favorite?

    The large lady who fell through the bath room floor. She was huffing and puffing just to tell her story. I could just see this character in my mind. BIG! Mr. Bennington gave her that voice of "I am soooo big I can hardly walk".


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    STORIES OF REAL LIFE DISASTERS.

    What made the experience of listening to Adjuster Stories the most enjoyable?

    We liked the narrator. He spook so clearly and it was easy to understand him.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Adjuster Stories?

    We were surprised at the damage that occurs from natural events and how ill prepared we are.for them.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Any additional comments?

    The subject is dry but I still enjoyed the book!

    Story
    "WHAT IS AN ADJUSTER?"
    What did you love best about Adjuster Stories?

    I liked the many stories of the people he run into doing the adjustment assignments from from those near his home office to the ones he had to travel to service.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I found out what an adjuster does and I put a face on the adjusters.


    Which character – as performed by Joshua Bennington – was your favorite?

    The whole book is done in a story teller voice and only a few times were there characters but Mr. Bennington did entertaining voices for each..


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Memoirs of an insurance adjuster.


    Any additional comments?

    I would have liked to hear more about some of his cases. Some cases could almost be a book in it self.

    Story
    "We never knew what an insurance adjuster does"
    What made the experience of listening to Adjuster Stories the most enjoyable?

    The narrator made the story interesting and gave it some life.


    What other book might you compare Adjuster Stories to and why?

    I have never read any other books about insurance before, so I can't compare other books on the subject. This one got my attention and held it after the first few chapters.


    Which character – as performed by Joshua Bennington – was your favorite?

    He did a few different characters. They were all different and only in the book for a few lines, but each character came to mind when Mr. Bennington spook their lines. I could almost visualize the character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Who or what is an adjuster?


    Any additional comments?

    I think everyone in the insurance industry and those interested in what happens to your insurance claim should read this book

    "Insurance adjuster?"
    What did you love best about Adjuster Stories?

    I think the book gave me a better understanding of the insurance industry. I never knew what an insurance adjuster was or what his function was in my claims


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend the audio book. I found it kept my attention and turned up my interest in the insurance industry in a way I did not think possible. The narration was good and the writing was in a very clipped manner almost like reading an insurance claim!
