Description
Praise for Don't Count On It!

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

"Jack Bogle has given investors throughout the world more wisdomand plain financial 'horse sense' than any person in the history ofmarkets. This compendium of his best writings, particularly hispost-crisis guidance, is absolutely essential reading for investorsand those who care about the future of our society." -- ARTHUR LEVITT , former Chairman, U.S. Securities andExchange 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 experiencespans the post-World War II years. This book, encompassinghis insights on financial behavior, pitfalls, and remedies, with aspecial focus on mutual funds, is an essential read. We can onlybenefit from his observations." -- HENRY KAUFMAN , President, Henry Kaufman &Company, Inc.

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

"On finance, Jack Bogle thinks unconventionally. So, this soundrebel turns out to be right most of the time. Meanwhile, many of ussometimes engage in self-deception. So, this book will set usstraight. And in the last few pages, Jack writes, and I agree, thatPeter Bernstein was a giant. So is Jack Bogle." -- JEAN-MARIE EVEILLARD , Senior Adviser, First EagleInvestment Management
