Default Queries re Emblem Software/GLM

I have a couple of general EMBLEM/GLIM questions which I was hoping someone might be able to help me with or guide me in the right direction:

1. The user guide in Emblem is alright but does not contain nearly enough detail - have there been books/papers written on recommended approaches/techniques to follow when modelling in Emblem

2. I'm working on a household GLIM at the moment and very often, I am unable to explain the shape I'm getting for a factor for particular model e.g. I'm getting a U shaped curve for buildings SI bands in my Theft/Buldings/Claim Frequency model

Are there any resources which explain the modelling results of a household glim at a detailed level i.e. what shapes to expect for particular factors etc.

3. I am having a debate with colleagues at the moment re the method of modelling i.e. whether we should be modelling (claims/sums insured) or some other variant - any good resources on this would be much appreciated.
