Bogleheads' Guide to Investing was missed by far too many ITA readers when first published back on July 21, 2010 and for that reason I am bringing it forward so newer members will pick it up.
Another investing book that should rank high on your reading list is "The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing," written by Taylor Larimore, Mel Lindauer, and Michael LeBoeuf. I first read this book over three years ago and at that time I did not appreciate all the gems of investing truth that are housed in this 291 page volume. If nothing else, my second read is cementing the core ideas of investing in low cost index vehicles. The emphasis of this book is to:
- Live simply
- Save frequently and early
- Populate the portfolio with index mutual funds
- Hold down costs
- Watch taxes
Over the past two years I've expanded on key ideas from this book. This book recently made my Top Twelve Investment Books on Seeking Alpha.
If you are not aware of the Bogleheads Investment Forum, you will find it at this URL. I placed a link to this forum over on Interesting Sites. Of the different areas on the Bogleheads Investment Forum, my favorite is Investing – Theory, News & General.
