Praise for The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing, Second Edition
"I'm often asked to recommend a good, basic book on investing, and The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing has been my go-to pick since its original publication. It focuses on all the right things: the virtues of maintaining a frugal lifestyle, keeping investment costs down, and building a simple, low-maintenance portfolio. And importantly, it also tells investors what they can safely tune out--namely, day-to-day market action and the latest 'hot' investment products. Its advice will stand the test of time."
--CHRISTINE BENZ, Director of Personal Finance, Morningstar, Inc.
"John Bogle set out to reform the mutual fund industry nearly 40 years ago. He saw a high fee, self-serving, good ol' boy network and thought it was wrong. Bogle believed the purpose of an investment company was to be investor-focused. His idea turned into a revolution. The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing is a testimony to the massive changes that have taken place as a result of Bogle's vision. The ideas in this book have saved countless investors billions of dollars in unnecessary fees. Hats off to Taylor, Mel, and Mike for a job well done."
--RICK FERRI, CFA, Founder, Portfolio Solutions LLC
"The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing describes a sophisticated and proven approach to successful investing. Nevertheless, its message of saving, investing in a diversified, balanced, low cost portfolio, and keeping it simple is easily grasped by investors of all levels of experience. Regardless of your investment acumen, this book provides many clearly expounded investment insights and is a great roadmap to financial success."
--GEORGE U. "GUS" SAUTER, Retired Chief Investment Officer, Vanguard
"The best one-stop shopping solution to saving, debt management, investing, insurance, and financial planning I have seen between two covers. For the price of a week's worth of lattes, you can secure your future."
--WILLIAM J. BERNSTEIN, cofounder, Efficient Frontier Advisors, LLC, author of The Intelligent Asset Allocator, The Four Pillars of Investing, and The Investor's Manifesto

However if you are planning to spend time researching stocks then this book is not of much use as it pushes you towards mediocre returns and perhaps wealth that might be created when you are old and retired. It exalts the efficient market theory and that is BS because market presents lots of inefficiencies from time to time to make great investments. This has been confirmed by great investors like Benjamin Graham, Seth Klarman and Buffett.
If you are looking to passively invest, re-balance once in a while and create wealth by the time you are old and retired then go for this book - else NOT.

Lo he usado para formarme e informarme en estos temas tan complicados.
La pega es que muchos conceptos están enfocados al sistema financiero americano y su fiscalidad.
This book is something I wish I had read many years ago (If it existed). It is full of sound advice for investors, young and old. I have made some of the mistakes written about in this book and recognize the emotional, knee-jerk reactions, born out of fear and ignorance that can cause so much damage to a retirement plan.
I read the book as soon as I got it and have recommended it to a friend already (a well-educated man who Has made similar mistakes out of fear for losing his wealth).
The key terms are risk tolerance (Asset allocation), a balanced portfolio, tax efficiency and cash management, to name a few that stick in my mind. This book may not be the last book you ever read about financial planning but it will probably switch a light on in your brain and help you understand what good financial advisors already know.
This book will lay out the sensible way to deal with your assets, how to build them and how to manage them. You may retain an advisor also but at least you will know what is happening and why.
This is a book that I highly recommend for new or seasoned investors. Bogleheads are Vanguard enthusiasts because they have been involved with the company but the ideas in the book apply to all investment companies like Fidelity and many others. Vanguard is known for its low cost index funds and offers various services to investors at all levels. Mr. Bogle is a Vanguard founder if not THE founder of Vanguard. The book talks about him. ENJOY!
