Publisher's Summary

The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing is a DIY handbook that espouses the sage investment wisdom of John C. Bogle. This witty and wonderful book offers contrarian advice that provides the first step on the road to investment success, illustrating how relying on typical "common sense" promoted by Wall Street is destined to leave you poorer. This updated edition includes new information on backdoor Roth IRAs and ETFs as mainstream buy-and-hold investments, estate taxes and gifting, plus changes to the laws regarding Traditional and Roth IRAs, and 401k and 403b retirement plans. With warnings and principles both precisely accurate and grandly counterintuitive, the Boglehead authors show how beating the market is a zero-sum game.  

Investing can be simple, but it's certainly not simplistic. Over the course of 20 years, the followers of John C. Bogle have evolved from a loose association of investors to a major force with the largest and most active non-commercial financial forum on the Internet. The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing brings that communication to you with comprehensive guidance to the investment prowess on display at Bogleheads.org. You'll learn how to craft your own investment strategy using the Bogle-proven methods that have worked for thousands of investors.

Reads you charts,why no PDF supplement?

Love the information however, the book reads reads you a lot of charts. Why is there not a PDF supplement? Not good as an audible book without PDF. Get the hard copy. It is hard to grasp all the numbers by listening.

I Didn't like this book

This book was essentially a big commercial on buying Vanguards ETFs and how to not invest in single stocks.

Will read it again

For a beginner, the book was quite informative and readable. I was able to pick a few tips and will be doing more research to understand some of the concepts as they are foreign to me. Otherwise I felt the book had it all and will read it again when I’m ready to level up!

Great way to start learning

I’m currently undergoing my MBA program and found this through my investment studies. Great foundation for understanding the basics of low cost index fund investing. It lays things out simply and follows an understandable walk through the ideas of live below your means and invest in the market averages. Highly recommended for anyone looking to learn the fundamentals of a investment portfolio.
