    Collectively, people think and act in ways that are different from how they think and act as individuals. Understanding these differences, says William (Bill) Bonner, a longtime maverick observer of the financial world and the vagaries of the investing public, is vital to preserving your wealth and personal dignity. Now Bonner and co-author Lila Rajiva show groupthink at work in an improbable array of instances throughout history and reveal why swimming against the current pays.

    "Entertaining, useful but unfocused"
    Overall

    Yes, I liked it overall. At some points it seemed the authors were being a bit mean-spirited, or they wandered a bit much. And in spite of the title, the book didn't feel like it was focused very clearly. That said, their contrary viewpoint was informative and amusing. The book entertained me and taught me some lessons.

    To learn how to make index investing work for you, there's no better mentor than legendary mutual-fund industry veteran John C. Bogle. Over the course of his long career, Bogle, founder of the Vanguard Group and creator of the world's first index mutual-fund, has relied primarily on index investing to help Vanguard's clients build substantial wealth. Now, with The Little Book of Common Sense Investing, he wants to help you do the same.

    "Repetitive but Very Good"
    Overall

    Some of the other reviewers are right; the book could be summarized in 30 minutes. That said, I've listened to it three times and during these crazy economic times it is sort of reassuring. Yes, you can beat the market but, no, it isn't likely that you will. This book helps you understand why and it might also make you less hungry for outsized returns. A good listen.
