Praise for The Bogleheads' Guide to Retirement Planning

"Meet the wisest and most generous crowd on Wall Street: the Bogleheads. The Internet's worst-kept secret is now well out in the open; for the best in online investment education and advice, you can't beat www.bogleheads.org. Wisdom of crowds, indeed: a thread for almost every need, an expert contributor for every subject. Now, for the first time between hard covers, the Bogleheads assemble their formidable collective expertise on retirement planning. Savor, enjoy, and learn."—William J. Bernstein, author of The Investor's Manifesto: Preparing for Prosperity, Armageddon, and Everything in Between

"The Bogleheads' Guide to Retirement Planning delivers the power of the community. Each chapter may have its own author, yet all have been molded by the remarkable Bogleheads community, resulting in a wonderful book that offers readers a slew of practical suggestions and a hefty serving of carefully calibrated advice."—Jonathan Clements, author of The Little Book of Main Street Money

"The Bogleheads have done it again! The Web's savviest and most caring investment consortium has gathered all the information you'll need to plot a safe and sane course toward retirement. Their camaraderie, kindness, and commonsense wisdom will steel you to 'stay the course' and realize your retirement dreams. With the Bogleheads, asking the audience is always the best solution."—Don Phillips, Managing Director, Morningstar

"This book pilots the reader around the shoals of retirement planning, including tricky issues such as social security, health insurance, divorce, and finding proper financial advice. This not-for-profit collaborative enterprise answers recurrent questions raised by members of the Bogleheads online forum with clarity, wisdom, and humor. It exposes fallacies, suggests alternatives, and reassures the thorough planner. It is a welcome contribution to a world where unrestrained greed and complex financial arrangements have capsized many. I keep referring back to it."—Ed Tower, Professor of Economics, Duke University

    Can't Get Enough of Those Bogleheads!

    Believe it or not, the Bogleheads have done it again! Only a few short years after the publication of their wildly successful bestseller, 'The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing,' America's number-one, financial brain trust has released another ingenious set of financial rules to live by. 'The Bogleheads' Guide to Retirement Planning' has all the information you'll ever need to know about maintaining the health of your portfolio amidst present and future financial storms. 'The Bogleheads' Guide is a must-read for anyone whose goal is to have his/her nest egg intact when he/she reaches retirement age.

    The book is written by real investors who manage their wealth according to the investment philosophy of financial rainmaker, John C. Bogle (founder and former CEO of the Pennsylvania based Vanguard Group, a wealth management company with over 1 trillion dollars in assets). Bogleheads live their financial lives according to what their guru has termed the 'Twelve Pillars of Wisdom'-tried and true principles for increasing investment profitability over the long haul. Some of these principles are: selecting low-cost mutual funds, carefully considering the added costs of obtaining financial advice from so-called professionals, being careful not to overrate past fund performance, using past performance to determine consistency and risk, being wary of "star" mutual fund managers, being wary of asset size, being careful not to acquire more funds than you can personally manage and holding onto your fund portfolio despite potentially upsetting swings in the market due to cyclicality.

    The Bogleheads offer a uniquely agenda-free alternative in a market that has become increasingly bloated with get-rich-quick schemes and advice from trendy financial know-it-alls like Jim Cramer, Dave Ramsey, et al. The Bogleheads' sole desire is share some of what they've learned about investing and the success it has brought them with others. As a previous reviewer noted, all royalties generated by the sale of this book are donated to the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia, where John C. Bogle serves on the Board of Trustees.

    This guide promises to help readers grow their personal wealth in a steady, financially responsible manner and it goes a long way toward reinventing the idea of investing as a long-term process with measured payoffs worthy of investor confidence.

    Two other books on wealth management and retirement planning that I found to be useful as I planned for my own retirement are John E. Girouard's 'The Ten Truths of Wealth Creation' and Thomas C. Scott's 'Fasten Your Financial Seatbelt: What A Fatal Plane Crash Taught Me About Retirement Planning.' Both books are written by owners of independent wealth management firms each of whom have 25+ years in the financial services industry. Both books are intelligently written, straightforward, enlightening and can be purchased for relatively cheap.
