Shoppers on the world’s largest bookstore, Amazon.com, have consistently praised all of Pamela Yellen’s books … and this one is no exception.

And in fact, nearly 80% of reviewers have given Pamela Yellen’s Bank On Yourself Revolution a 4-star or 5-star review. Many also used glowing terms to describe their personal experiences with the Bank On Yourself concept.

Why is the Bank On Yourself concept receiving so much positive attention from Americans interested in a secure financial future? We’ve sifted through Amazon’s book reviews to find the answers. (All reviews are quoted verbatim, except for spelling and grammatical corrections and minor edits for clarity.)

According to Amazon Reviewer “Valentine,” Bank On Yourself Is “The Best Lifelong Safe and Guaranteed Wealth-Building Strategy Everyone Can Employ”


Valentine picked up on a key point in The Bank On Yourself Revolution:

Investing is not equal to saving, but many of us have been conditioned to believe that it is. Well, it’s not. After you read the book you realize that investing is more equal to gambling and speculating. And if you want to gamble and speculate on the stock market that’s fine, but would you want to do that with money you cannot afford to lose, like your retirement account?”

Amazon Reviewer “Fred642” Explained in His Review of Bank On Yourself Why New Is Not Always Better …

Pamela Yellen has reverted to an old and time-tested system of safe money management (Bank On Yourself) provided by major life insurance companies that at one time was the major source of financial security for most Americans. This system began to be replaced in the 1970s with the idea that you had to assume some risk in order to achieve a decent return on your money. Pamela effectively puts this myth to bed with statistics that summarize the results of risk-based investing as opposed to risk-free investing.”

Those are the words of Kelly Staley, a Bank On Yourself Amazon reviewer and satisfied customer since 2009 – almost a decade. In her Amazon.com review, she recalled how she first learned of Bank On Yourself …

“I remember clearly the day I was driving to work when I heard of the concept on the radio, and I remember thinking “How is it that I haven’t heard of this? I’ve got to know more about it.” So after finishing my commute to work, the first thing I did was go to the Bank On Yourself website and read as much as I could. I opted in to get the free safe wealth-building report.

“After reviewing the site that morning, by lunchtime I wanted to cancel all of my other investments (401(k) and 457, Roth IRA, and savings), but then the “other voice” started talking. You see I’m married and this was a huge change to our finances, and I had to let my husband have some input. He, too, read the report and he gave me the go-ahead for the ‘Free Analysis.’ …

“I was referred to an advisor who has been the best! His whole staff (and his wife) are wonderful. He is easy-going, not pushy in the least, and he gave me the very same consistent information that I had read. He worked the numbers and created a plan that works for us. This was in 2009.”

Did Bank On Yourself Work out for Kelly as Well as She Hoped They Would? She Wrote …

“Now that it’s been almost five years since we implemented the concept, I am really enjoying the results. It’s so nice to simply check the website, call my advisor’s office, or simply pick up the phone to see what and how much is available to me and “Ask and you will receive” the money that is available. No joke! No hassle. No questions!

“We have used the money to remove debt from creditors’ view, take trips, and invest. And the ways are only limited by your personal comfort level and imagination. Within the next few years, I will get at least two more Bank On Yourself policies for my boys, and one for my brother. …

“Thanks to you, Pamela, and to my advisor. I know what I will have for my retirement! My kids will learn about money the right way, from the start.”

We’ve never met Kelly, but we applaud her enthusiasm. Thank you, Kelly, for your five-star review of Bank On Yourself!

Is the Bank On Yourself Strategy Too Good To Be True?

We turn to Amazon reviewer Valentine again for an answer.

He describes himself as “a user of Pamela’s Yellen’s Bank On Yourself strategy.” So he writes from personal experience …

“If you ask yourself, ‘Isn’t this too good to be true?’ ask yourself a better question: ‘Who says this is too good to be true?’ And I would respectfully submit to you that, most likely, the detractors are people who have no clue what they are talking about. That is, they do not use Bank On Yourself personally.

“I am a user of Pamela’s Bank On Yourself strategy and I do know what I am talking about. The people who are using the Bank On Yourself strategy and see the benefits of it in their lives know that this (Bank On Yourself) is normal!”

Valentine is making the point that guaranteed growth, no ups and downs in the Wall Street Casino, and an unsurpassed sense of security are normal for Bank On Yourselfers.

“Abnormal for those who use the Bank On Yourself method is to pay into a defined contribution pension plan for tens of years and have no clue what they are going to have in that account on the day of their retirement.

“Abnormal for them is to maximize their 401(k) (RRSP in Canada) contributions every year without a clue or guarantee regarding their results in those government sponsored plans, to lose access to that money for a few decades, and to increase their tax liability in their old age every year.

“Abnormal for them is to maximize their 529 college funding plan (RESP in Canada) contributions and not be able to touch that money for a couple of decades and finally be able to use it only if the child actually goes to college!?!

“Abnormal for them is to gamble your hard earned money in the Stock Market Casino and hope and pray to get ahead, while the people who own that casino are making money every year – whether you are making money or losing money in your account.

“Abnormal for them is to go and grovel at the feet of the bankers for a loan, having to provide unbelievable amounts of information and paperwork, wait for weeks for a decision, and after all that to be rejected for that loan, because they do not have a perfect credit score. Bank On Yourself users can get a loan in a few days, with just one page of paperwork.

“I do not want to be a spoiler, so the above ‘Abnormals’ are just a few you’ll be learning about when you read The Bank On Yourself Revolution.”

Wow! Thanks, Valentine, for your enthusiastic and positive review of Bank On Yourself!

Amazon reviewer Fred642 summarized the drawbacks to a Bank On Yourself plan. He says the Bank On Yourself system is not a magic pill or a get rich scheme and admits that it has three drawbacks …

  1. You have to be patient – it takes a few years to get into high gear
  2. There is never a year where you zoom up by 10, 20, or 30% (and never a year where you come crashing down by the same percentages)
  3. You have to buck “conventional wisdom. Many will tell you that you are crazy to think Bank On Yourself can beat every other system. And although you’ll know they are wrong, you have that negativity to contend with.

But even with those “drawbacks,” Fred’s endorsement of Bank On Yourself is strong:

All in all we have a modern textbook here that will lead anyone willing to take some time to understand these concepts into a stress-free system of financial security that will be enjoyed for a lifetime.”
