Description

John C. Bogle's The Little Book of Index Investing is a power-packed explanation of why outperforming the market is an investor illusion. Instead, the founder of The Vanguard Group—the man who's been called "the conscience of the investment industry"*—recommends a simple, time-tested investment strategy that can deliver the greatest return to the greatest number of investors: indexing. Why? Investing is a zero-sum game where transaction costs, taxes, poor investment diversification, and poor market-timing (an affliction for most investors) hurts your portfolio more than it helps. Indexing eliminates that hurt. Bottom-line, if you can't be an index, why not invest in one? And you'll be all the happier and richer for it.*Time Magazine

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: This primer from the founder of the Vanguard Mutual Fund Group, the father of the index fund, provides a relatively simple discussion for mutual fund investors. John Bogle is considered a hero by many investors, small and large. Thom Pinto's reading makes us feel like we're taking personal instruction from our "Uncle Jack." Pinto's pacing is just right for this sometimes complex topic. Even though the author does a good job of presenting the material simply, it takes Pinto's accomplished delivery to keep us fully connected. Listen to this terrific book if you're saving for retirement, saving for your kids' college education, or just using mutual funds as the great "get rich" strategy many believe they are. M.C.
