The Little Book of Common Sense Investing: The Only Way to Guarantee Your Fair Share of Stock Market Returns (Little Books. Big Profits)

The best-selling investing "bible" offers new information, new insights, and new perspectives

The Little Book of Common Sense Investing is the classic guide to getting smart about the market. Legendary mutual fund  pioneer John C. Bogle reveals his key to getting more out of investing: low-cost index funds. Bogle describes the simplest and most effective investment strategy for building wealth over the long term: buy and hold, at very low cost, a mutual fund that tracks a broad stock market Index such as the S&P 500.

While the stock market has tumbled and then soared since the first edition of Little Book of Common Sense was published in April 2007, Bogle’s investment principles have endured and served investors well.  This tenth anniversary edition includes updated data and new information but maintains the same long-term perspective as in its predecessor. 

Bogle has also added two new chapters designed to provide further guidance to investors:  one on asset allocation, the other on retirement investing.

A portfolio focused on index funds is the only investment that effectively guarantees your fair share of stock market returns. This strategy is favored by Warren Buffett, who said this about Bogle: “If a statue is ever erected to honor the person who has done the most for American investors, the hands-down choice should be Jack Bogle. For decades, Jack has urged investors to invest in ultra-low-cost index funds. . . . Today, however, he has the satisfaction of knowing that he helped millions of investors realize far better returns on their savings than they otherwise would have earned. He is a hero to them and to me.”

Bogle shows you how to make index investing work for you and help you achieve your financial goals, and finds support from some of the world's best financial minds: not only Warren Buffett, but Benjamin Graham, Paul Samuelson, Burton Malkiel, Yale’s David Swensen, Cliff Asness of AQR, and many others.

This new edition of The Little Book of Common Sense Investing offers you the same solid strategy as its predecessor for building your financial future.

  • Build a broadly diversified, low-cost portfolio without the risks of individual stocks, manager selection, or sector rotation.
  • Forget the fads and marketing hype, and focus on what works in the real world.
  • Understand that stock returns are generated by three sources (dividend yield, earnings growth, and change in market valuation) in order to establish rational expectations for stock returns over the coming decade.
  • Recognize that in the long run, business reality  trumps market expectations.
  • Learn how to harness the magic of compounding returns while avoiding the tyranny of compounding costs.

While index investing allows you to sit back and let the market do the work for you, too many investors trade frantically, turning a winner’s game into a loser’s game. The Little Book of Common Sense Investing is a solid guidebook to your financial future.

The Clash of the Cultures: Investment vs. Speculation

Recommended Reading by Warren Buffet in his March 2013 Letterto Shareholders

How speculation has come to dominate investment—ahard-hitting look from the creator of the first index fund.

Over the course of his sixty-year career in the mutual fundindustry, Vanguard Group founder John C. Bogle has witnessed amassive shift in the culture of the financial sector. The prudent,value-adding culture of long-term investment has been crowded outby an aggressive, value-destroying culture of short-termspeculation. Mr. Bogle has not been merely an eye-witness to thesechanges, but one of the financial sector’s most activeparticipants. In The Clash of the Cultures, he urges a return tothe common sense principles of long-term investing.

Provocative and refreshingly candid, this book discusses Mr.Bogle's views on the changing culture in the mutual fund industry,how speculation has invaded our national retirement system, thefailure of our institutional money managers to effectivelyparticipate in corporate governance, and the need for a federalstandard of fiduciary duty.

Mr. Bogle recounts the history of the index mutual fund, how hecreated it, and how exchange-traded index funds have altered itsoriginal concept of long-term investing. He also presents afirst-hand history of Wellington Fund, a real-world case study onthe success of investment and the failure of speculation. The bookconcludes with ten simple rules that will help investors meet theirfinancial goals. Here, he presents a common sense strategy that"may not be the best strategy ever devised. But the number ofstrategies that are worse is infinite."

The Clash of the Cultures: Investment vs. Speculationcompletes the trilogy of best-selling books, beginning withBogle on Investing: The First 50 Years (2001) and Don'tCount on It! (2011)
