Synopsis:

John C. Bogle, founder of The Vanguard Group of Investment Companies, is both a dynamic leader in the mutual fund industry and its most outspoken critic. Best known for his crusade against unfair treatment of mutual fund clients, Bogle has built a $100 billion mutual fund company on principles of candor, fairness, and low cost.

Rather than a quick route to "wealth without risk", this conscientious guide offers strategies for developing a diversified portfolio that will weather the market's short-term variations. With painstaking care, Bogle warns the reader of the major pitfalls common to mutual fund investing. This is the book to read if you are serious about mutual funds. Encouraging investors to take into account their investment attitudes, their position in the "life cycle" of an investment program, and the behavior of the securities markets over the long run, Bogle on Mutual Funds provides a solid framework for establishing a long-term investment portfolio, one based on sensible selections from among the thousands of stock funds, bonds funds, and money market funds available in this burgeoning industry. Every intelligent investor should read what Jack Bogle has to say about mutual funds.
