Vanguard to the front...

The Little Book of Common Sense Investing:
By John C. Bogle
John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2007

To learn how to make index investing work, there's no better mentor than legendary mutual fund industry veteran John C. Bogle. Over the course of his long career, Bogle, founder of the Vanguard Group and creator of the world's first index mutual fund has relied primarily on index investing to help Vanguard's clients build substantial wealth. Now, with the May eBook of the Month, he can help your library users do the same.

Filled with in-depth insights and practical advice, The Little Book of Common Sense Investing will demonstrate how to capitalize on this proven investment strategy. As revealed by Bogle, the real formula for investment success is to own the entire market, while significantly minimizing the costs of financial intermediation. That's what index investing is all about. And that's what this book is all about.
