The irreverent guide to investing, Boglehead style

The Boglehead’s 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 twenty 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 Boglehead’s 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, and how to:

Choose a sound financial lifestyle and diversify your portfolio Start early, invest regularly, and know what you’re buying Preserve your buying power, keeping costs and taxes low Throw out the “good” advice promoted by Wall Street that leads to investment failure

Financial markets are essentially closed systems in which one’s gain garners another’s loss. Investors looking for a roadmap to successfully navigating these choppy waters long-term will find expert guidance, sound advice, and a little irreverent humor in The Boglehead’s Guide to Investing.

Take the emotion out of investing and understand the essential principles to apply (and more) For years I did what my advisor told me without understanding what was going on. Fortunately, she was a good advisor and steered us through calm and troubled waters. Now I’m retired and I have time to educate myself, even though it’s a little late in life. Potentially, my wife and I still have a 15-20 year window of opportunity even though our risk/reward ratio has changed.This book is something I wish I had read many years ago (If it existed). It is full of sound advice for…

Graham’s “The Intelligent Investor”. Between the three of them they teach … One of my “Big 3” books on investing that I think anyone who wants to get into the stock market or investing at all should read. The other two being Fisher’s “Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits” and, of course, Graham’s “The Intelligent Investor”. Between the three of them they teach you how to think like a real investor, while offering a few different approaches to the stock market. The three different styles will help educate you on how to make successful long term…

Solid Guide To A Powerful Investing Strategy I first became aware of the power of compound interest from studying guys like Tony Robbins and Brian Tracy. They go on and on about how you need to set aside a certain amount every month/year and let it compound into millions over time. That’s fine and well, but I could never really figure out a way to implement the strategy. Safe, predictable returns are next to impossible to come by these days. The Bogleheads and Jack Bogle preach the power of compound interest as well, but they actually…
