west Posted September 29, 2014 Share Posted September 29, 2014 I recently was asked by a friend of one of my family members about what they should do as far as investing goes? I talked a little with them and based on their personality and the amount of money they had, I think an index fund is the best option for them. I want to recommend a book to them about index funds so they have some grounding if the market ever goes down. I figure recommending one of Bogle's many books is probably the way to go, but I have no idea which one is the best. Plus, I've read some of Bogle's non-indexing related books, and they have a tendency to be hard to chew. Does anyone know of one of his books that's easy enough to read that your typical, let's say, People magazine reader could read it? Thanks in advance! PS- To stop the argument before it begins, I pick my own investments myself (as I'm sure many of you know). So I understand that the market is inefficient in places and you can take advantage of it. However, after assessing my family's friend's personality and financial sophistication, they will be best served by an index fund. So please don't tell me they should be in individual stocks. Sorry to be blunt. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
