I heard of this book on an Investopedia articled titled "The 9 Best Books for Young Investors in 2021" that says: "If there’s only one book young investors need to learn about the stock market, retirement investing strategies, and real estate investment opportunities, we recommend “The Little Book of Common Sense Investing” by John C. Bogle." Intrigued, I was expecting some sort of a guide on the stock market: some sort of "for Dummies" book but better.
Instead, what I found was a finance-themed self-help book which, like all self-help books, stretches a single simple concept for 200+ pages. Here's the gist of the book: invest in index funds, don't waste your time and money by investing in single stocks or mutual funds. That's it, I saved you 10 quids. The book introduces this concept in the first 10 pages and proceeds to bludgeon you on the head with it for the remaining 190 pages. All the while relentlessly pouring unfunny jokes, quotes from Warren Buffet (if I wanted to hear from him I would've gone to the source thanks), and the author's unbearable self-aggrandizing as a "pioneer" of index funds. That's right, the author has a vested interest in index funds since he created Vanguard, one of the most famous index funds.
Basically with this book you're buying an ad.
If there's an upside from this situation is that from now on I won't every buy a stock market book again: I will just borrow ebooks from the library and read them on my non-Amazon ereader.
TRUST ME, I had read this book. the whole book focus on one general point! buying index fund. think about this, if buying index funds will make everyone rich, why not everyone gets rich? it predicts the ETF, single stock, mutual funds are SUCK. My suggestion is that you can read other books instead of this one!!!!!!!! others are useful! this book totally wasting time.
This book also using such weird language, try to show off the language skills. the purpose of this book is trying to teach you general knowledge about the relationship between investors, markets, and suggestions put in people in the hard understanding situations.
Book content is great no doubt, but paying 1000 bucks, you atleast expect a good hard copy, not a fake replica with slanted pages. Disappointed that even wiley books are coming in first copy and Amazon somehow is promoting them
This book written by ex-ETF fund managers so he wrote this book only from his point of view . He keep insisting that nothing good than owning ETF , not even individual stocks . However, I don’t see any common sense in just investing in ETFs.
No substance at all. Book seems to have Excessive Repetitive Syndrome of Index funds. Will not recommend this book to anyone; even to those who only have fundamental understanding of stocks. Total waste of time.
Book Physical quality was good But the content inside is not much It gives you an opinion to buy an Index fund Whereas I want to learn to investigate companies to invest in. Like warren buffet or Benjamin Graham or rakesh ਝੁਨਝੁਨਵਾਲਾ
