Description
Praise for Don't Count On It!

"This collection of Jack Bogle's writings couldn't be more timely. The clarity of his thinking--and his insistence on the relevance of ethical standards--are totally relevant as we strive to rebuild a broken financial system. For too many years, his strong voice has been lost amid the cacophony of competing self-interests, misdirected complexity, and unbounded greed. Read, learn, and support Jack's mission to reform the industry that has been his life's work." -- PAUL VOLCKER , Chairman of the President's Economic Recovery Advisory Board and former Chairman of the Federal Reserve (1979-1987)

"Jack Bogle has given investors throughout the world more wisdom and plain financial 'horse sense' than any person in the history of markets. This compendium of his best writings, particularly his post-crisis guidance, is absolutely essential reading for investors and those who care about the future of our society." -- ARTHUR LEVITT , former Chairman, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission

"Jack Bogle is one of the most lucid men in finance." -- NASSIM N.TALEB , PhD, author of The Black Swan

"Jack Bogle is one of the financial wise men whose experience spans the post-World War II years. This book, encompassing his insights on financial behavior, pitfalls, and remedies, with a special focus on mutual funds, is an essential read. We can only benefit from his observations." -- HENRY KAUFMAN , President, Henry Kaufman & Company, Inc.

"It was not an easy sell. The joke at first was that only finance professors invested in Vanguard's original index fund. But what a triumph it has been. And what a focused and passionate drive it took: it is a zero-sum game and only costs are certain. Thank you, Jack." -- JEREMY GRANTHAM , Cofounder and Chairman, GMO

"On finance, Jack Bogle thinks unconventionally. So, this sound rebel turns out to be right most of the time. Meanwhile, many of us sometimes engage in self-deception. So, this book will set us straight. And in the last few pages, Jack writes, and I agree, that Peter Bernstein was a giant. So is Jack Bogle." -- JEAN-MARIE EVEILLARD , Senior Adviser, First Eagle Investment Management
