    The Bogleheads' Guide is a Winner!

    Many good books have been written on saving and investing but this is one of the best I've read. It is written in simple language and avoids technical jargon that tends to lose readers who are looking for basic knowledge and a plan they can develop and implement. I learned so much that I ordered 12 more copies for close friends. I believe browsing chapters 19 & 23 would be helpful to anyone who might not feel they have the ability to get the most from this book. I always thought investing was complicated but found it can be a do-it-yourself activity. The Bogleheads' Guide is a winner and I would recommend it to readers of all ages who are struggling with understanding the best and easiest way to save and invest for their future.

    Great Book for all those interested in Investing

    There are a lot of books out there about investing and managing your money, but this one provides a very simple and easy to understand perspective that all investors can comprehend. The authors have gone to great lengths to make sure that the most uneducated and inexperienced investor can take the advice in this book and use it immediately. This book is more than just how to invest, it describes money management life style changes needed to help someone accumulate wealth.
