This book is a fantastic introduction to passive investing and is relevant in any economy. Recommended for any age, but especially for the young who may just be starting to invest and have visions of Jim Cramer clouding their strategy. Be prepared to either have some basic knowledge or be willing to look up basic definitions of some of the investment vehicles they talk about. They state that they presume no prior knowledge of anything but definitely throw terms out that everyone may not be familiar with. While some of the examples could stand to be updated after the recession, the principles here stand the test of time and should be reviewed and followed by everyone. ( )

A well-written and easy-to-read book for beginners interested in securing their own financial future but have no idea how or where to start. The authors definitely took their audience into consideration--the content was not dumbed down or oversimplified, but it was also not that difficult to comprehend. Everything was set up in sections, which included great explanations of the what and why, and additional resources were also provided as alternative choices or for further individual research. Of all the personal investment books I have read thus far, this is one of two books I have enjoyed reading and learning from the most. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0470067365, Paperback)

The Bogleheads’ Guide to Investing is a slightly irreverent, straightforward guide to investing for everyone. The book offers sound, practical advice, no matter what your age or net worth. Bottomline, become a Boglehead and prosper! Originally just the chat-line ruminations of Boglehead founder Taylor Larimore, and Morningstar forum leading cohorts Mel Lindauer and Michael LeBoeuf, their trusted advice has been brewed and distilled into an easy-to-use, need-to-know, no frills guide to building up your own financial well-being – so you can worry less and profit more from the investments you make. Invest like a Boglehead, and let their grassroots investment wisdom guide you down the path of long-term wealth creation and happiness, without all the worries and fuss of stock pickers and day traders. If you face a financial crisis or problem, or simply want to know what is prudent to do with the money you save, the Bogleheads will have the answers you need to help you gain your financial footing and keep it.
