5.0 out of 5 stars Simple Straight Forward Investing Guide That Works, September 14, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing (Hardcover)
I've been saving for 20 years - The first ten years I discounted my father's "conservative" advice and bought the hot sector funds, stocks and gold coins. I thought I was doing well. Now I'm a little smarter - I see that my returns during the great bull market of the 90's were only single digit, while my father's approach produced far better returns. Now my Dad's advice is common sense to me and I know that I missed-out on a large chunk of the bull market because I thought I knew it all. I should have followed his straight-forward, common sense advice.

Fortunately this does not have to happen to you - My father(and his friends) wrote the book...Its all the advice I wish I had followed during my first ten years of investing.
