"Do you know what your retirement account will be worth on the day you plan to tap into it? Do you know what the tax rates will be for the rest of your life? Do you know what day you're going to die? Most people have no clue... and that's the problem with conventional financial planning: It's based on things you can't predict or control. Studies show that because they followed the conventional wisdom, almost half of all Boomers won't have enough money to cover even basic living expenses during their retirement years. Now, the financial gurus whose advice got you into this mess in the first place are telling you to "take more risk," "work 'til you drop," and "plan on spending less in retirement." Hundreds of thousands have instead opted out of a system where the odds are stacked against you. This book reveals a proven step-by-step plan for becoming your own source of financing and growing your wealth safely and predictably every single year-even when the markets are tumbling. For everyone from young professionals paying back student loans and middle managers to those trying to protect their hard-earned wealth and retirees, Bank On Yourself is not a "get-rich-quick" scheme; it's about real wealth and financial security for as long as you live. Imagine finally knowing how much money you'll have next year, in 10, 20 or 30 years-and at every point along the way. "-- Provided by publisher.

I have to disagree. After reading this book and Becoming Your Own Banker, I started my first policy. As a finance major in college, it surprised me that this information was never even mentioned.

Don't get hung up on using whole life insurance. It is the vehicle that allows the tax-free benefits and liquidity that your 401k or IRA don't.

After starting my second policy, I was able to pay off all my credit card debt, buy investment real estate properties, and now I plan on paying off my mortgage.

Thank you Tgenova. It's very helpful when somebody gives an intelligent and concise review of a non-fiction book, especially when it regards something as important as this subject.
Again Thank you Tgenova,

Sorry to say this book is nothing more than an infomercial for the whole-life insurance industry. The entire book is dedicated to showing how buying a whole-life policy from an early age will make you and your family wealthy. (Of course you have to die to collect the money.) I laughed out loud when I came to the graphic example of how much a 60 year old person's policy would be worth after paying only $1,000 a month, every month, starting at birth. Yes, starting at birth! Don't waste you time with this book.
