Publisher's Summary

As the prospect of a secure financial future and a comfortable retirement becomes increasingly remote for many, and experts are concluding that conventional investing and financial planning strategies aren’t working, Pamela Yellen reveals an extraordinary, little-known but time-tested method for growing wealth safely and predictably, even when the stock and real-estate markets and other investments tumble.

In this audiobook, Yellen reveals the secrets to taking back control of your financial future that Wall Street, banks, and credit-card companies don’t want you to know.

You’ll discover how to:

  • Have a rock-solid financial plan and a predictable retirement income that can last as long as you do—with no luck, skill, or guesswork required
  • Turn your back on the stomach-churning twists and turns of the stock and real-estate markets
  • Get back every penny you pay for your cars, vacations, home repairs, business equipment, a college education, and other major purchases, so you can enjoy more of life’s luxuries today without robbing your nest-egg!
  • Become your own source of financing and recapture the interest you pay to banks and finance companies—reduce or eliminate the control those institutions have over you.

      "Informative Book"
      What did you love best about Bank on Yourself?

      I have the investment instrument talked about in this book. I obtained the book to just refresh the idea, see if there was information I didn't know, etc. While the beginning of the book reads like an infomercial I'm not sure there would be another way to do it and get the info across. Knowing what takes place in structuring one of these, I felt the book was very informative, explained exactly what is needed (although you do need a licensed agent to put it together, you can do it without one), and answered all the questions I originally had, plus some I hadn't thought ot.


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

      Even though this was several hours long, I listend to it in a short period of time. Grant it, I knew the info so it was an easy read for me. Someone who has no idea would want to take it more methodically.


      Any additional comments?

      This is a great vehicle. We have three in our family and we are in our fourth year. My daughter bought her first car paying cash through this plan and my older daughter paid her car off within the first 18 months of the plan. They have been very useful.

      "Perfect For Today's Investor"

      This is a perfect audio for today's investor who has learned the hard way about trusting his life savings to others. Yellen tells you where to put your money so it will grow, and won't suddenly disappear. Great audio if you want to sleep soundly at night!

      "Great Concept But..."
      Would you listen to Bank on Yourself again? Why?

      No. The information is good but mired in too many stories...with too few real details. Listening to the audio book was tedious and the voice performers did NOT help.


      What did you like best about this story?

      Excellent financial concept.


      What didn’t you like about Pamela Yellen and Sean Pratt ’s performance?

      just did not work for me...but the content was probably partially at fault...not well-written and too elementary


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      No


      Any additional comments?

      No

      "ONE BIG INFOMERCIAL"
      Would you try another book from Pamela Yellen and/or Pamela Yellen and Sean Pratt ?

      no. because this is dishonesty. don't make me pay for a concept, but i don't actually get the real substance until i buy something else that you didn't mention upfront.


      Would you ever listen to anything by Pamela Yellen again?

      no


      Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Pamela Yellen and Sean Pratt ?

      irrelivant


      If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Bank on Yourself?

      I would actually give people useful info in this book that they paid for, whether they want to buy something else from me or not.

      "Total garbage, avoid!"

      Thankfully, I did not buy this book. I listen to it thanks to a friend and made it through about 2 1/2 hours before I just gave up. It is basically an elongated sales pitch, nothing more. The author repeatedly promises to reveal her techniques and methodology, but first has yet another pointless meandering anecdote to share with you before she gets to the hard-sell. This is a complete waste of time, avoid it!

      "My first review -----I just had to do it"

      This book is a waste. Reasons: Author repeats the same phrase over, and over, and over, and over. Doesn't describe what she means in her rant. After 5 Hours, I gave up. It's a Nightmare, stay away.

      Really zero stars, but had to pick one
