Praise for Enough

"Jack Bogle's passionate cry of Enough. contains a thought-provoking litany of life lessons regarding our individual roles in commerce and society. Rarely do so few pages provoke so much thought. Read this book."

DAVID F. SWENSEN, Chief Investment Officer, Yale University

"What went wrong? What can, and should, go right? The great Jack Bogle has the answers. Enough. will leave you hungry for more."

JAMES GRANT, Editor of Grant's Interest Rate Observer

"Enough. gives new meaning to the words 'commitment,' 'accountability,' and 'stewardship.' Bogle writes with clarity and passion. Must reading for millions of U.S. investors."

ARTHUR LEVITT, former chairman, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission

"Jack Bogle, 'the conscience of Wall Street,' distills his half-century of observations into a few hundred entertaining pages—required reading for those concerned about their own future, their family's future, and the nation's future."

William J. Bernstein, Author of A Splendid Exchange and The Four Pillars of Investing

"One Jack Bogle has more horse sense than the entire Wall Street herd. When you read the first paragraph you'll be hooked, as I was. This small book pays huge dividends."

ALAN S. BLINDER, Co-Director, Princeton University Center for Economic Policy Studies, and former vice chairman, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System

"This book weaves together terms like trust, value, success, satisfaction, stewardship, character, and contribution into a life tapestry that reminds experienced readers how they can master the treadmill of their lives and guides young readers in how to control their destiny."

PROFESSOR JEFFREY SONNENFELD, Senior Associate Dean, Yale School of Management

Synopsis:

Written in a straightforward and accessible style, "Enough" inspires and enlightens in equal measure. Bogle offers his unparalleled insights on money, values, and what the true treasures are in life.

Synopsis:

John Bogle puts our obsession with financial success in perspective

Throughout his legendary career, John C. Bogle-founder of the Vanguard Mutual Fund Group and creator of the first index mutual fund-has helped investors build wealth the right way and led a tireless campaign to restore common sense to the investment world. Along the way, he's seen how destructive an obsession with financial success can be. Now, with Enough., he puts this dilemma in perspective.

Inspired in large measure by the hundreds of lectures Bogle has delivered to professional groups and college students in recent years, Enough. seeks, paraphrasing Kurt Vonnegut, "to poison our minds with a little humanity." Page by page, Bogle thoughtfully considers what "enough" actually means as it relates to money, business, and life.

  • Reveals Bogle's unparalleled insights on money and what we should consider as the true treasures in our lives
  • Details the values we should emulate in our business and professional callings
  • Contains thought-provoking life lessons regarding our individual roles in society

Written in a straightforward and accessible style, this unique book examines what it truly means to have "enough" in world increasingly focused on status and score-keeping.
