Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Latest edition of Princeton professor Malkiel's bestselling investment guide. (Sept.)
The Economist
...[F]irst published nearly 30 years ago and now revised, is deservedly a perennial bestseller. It maintains that investors who buy and hold all the stocks in a broad stockmarket average — as index funds do — are likely to do better than investors who put their money into actively managed funds, not least because the higher charges and trading costs of professional money managers cut into investment returns.
