Format: Paperback
This "Definitive Book on Mutual Funds" demonstrates effectively with facts and statistics that common stocks are hugely superior to long-term bonds and cash reserves. (I personally think income-producing real estate is superior to common stocks, but there are no national statistics to prove that.)
How should we invest in common stocks? Mr. Bogle has the answer for most of us, it is indexed mutual funds (S&P 500, Russell 2000, etc.). This book should be reread if you start getting impatient and begin to feel that your stock-picking ability is superior to the stock market indices.
How readers will feel about Mr. Bogle's book, say, 10 to 20 years from now, depends upon what happens to the stock market in the future. If the stock market has a disastrous crash (index funds do not provide immunity from crashes) along the way, and 15 years from now it is, say, at 10,000, people will say, "Boy, was I stupid to believe Mr. Bogle, and put so much into the stock market."
The bottom line advice of this excellent book is that the stock market is a good bet, so obviously if the market does not cooperate, the credibility of this scholarly work will suffer. 20/20 hindsight will condemn even the best books. I am betting all my stock market investments, mostly indexed mutual funds (most of my money, however, is in real estate), that there won't be a disaster and the market will be significantly higher. The history that Mr. Bogle provides in this book shows that this is a reasonable bet.

Format: Paperback
This is the single best investment book I've ever read and used. Bogle is accessible, thorough, and helpful. His general advice has been known to Vanguard investors for quite some time and the Vanguard "philosophy" has helped me build a nice retirement nest egg over the last 20 years. You can do it too without fearing the ups and downs of the market.
This book is a gem with many facets. It explains the various investment markets; it describes the different types of mutual funds (bond, stock, balanced, money market, etc.); it tells you how to understand and evaluate risk; and it gives advice on how to construct an investment program for whatever purpose you may have in mind (college tuition, retirement, to preserve and enlarge an inheritance). Bogle also gives advice on how much risk is prudent for different investment time "horizons".
I bought this book when it first came out and have re-read it several times to make sure I'm on track. For the average investor, this is a classic.

Format: Paperback
For almost a decade now, this has been my bible on mutual funds. Using a straightforward and candid approach, Vanguard founder John Bogle explains every aspect of mutual funds and the industry behind them. Never does Bogle exaggerate information or mislead the reader as many other financial "guru's" do to sell their books. He is a true consumer advocate and his goal is clearly to educate.
Covered is everything from stocks, bonds, money market funds, indexing, asset allocation, expense ratio's and the risks inherent not only in investing but in not investing (e.g. the erosion of the dollar vs. inflation in "safe" investments). Bogle utilizes numerous graphs and statistical data throughout the book to help make his point and to allow the reader increased comprehension.
It is important to note that this book was published in the early 1990's. Since then capital gains tax laws have changed and the Roth IRA was yet to be created. For more up-to-date information I would recommend reading Bogle's newer book, Common Sense on Mutual Funds. Nevertheless, Bogle On Mutal Funds is a great place to start educating yourself to become more financially savvy. This book has been invaluable to me and I believe it is key to my investing success. I find myself often referring to it, expecially now in these turbulent market times just to hear Mr. Bogle remind me to, "stay the course" and I will be rewarded. No wonder so many admirers refer to the beloved Mr. Bogle as, "Saint Jack."

Format: Paperback
John C. Bogle founded the $100 billion Vanguard Group, Inc. in 1974 and continues as chairman and CEO of each of its mutual funds. He writes that what you should be reading is mutual fund prospectuses-- about 20 of your own choosing, mostly stock funds but some bond and money market funds-- to gauge their objectives, investment policies, returns, risks and total costs over the long-term. If you're investing for the short-term, the prospectuses will outline key transaction policies on share redemption, exchanges, fees or limits on the frequency of exchanges. Bogle on Mutual Funds is an instant classic for its lucidity in showing how to balance the risks of common stocks, bonds and money market reserves during different stages of a lifetime investment strategy. A big difference is whether you compound the income portion of your investment return or spend it. In the long run, he writes, "compound interest may indeed be the greatest mathematical discovery of all time for the investor seeking maximum reward." It helps fight price inflation and makes time into a fast friend. A long time horizon minimizes risk like nothing else, Mr. Bogle writes. And of course he discusses asset allocation, offers his own model portfolios, and trumpets diversification, professional management, liquidity and convenience through mutual funds. This is a book every investor should absorb, especially those who believe that wealth can be accumulated through the wise deployment of stocks' underlying values.
