    "Excallent"

    After thirty years of investing I finally found this book which agrees with everything I should have done but didn't. In a clear and forthright manner the author has nailed the essence of profitable investing for the average Joe. I've finally taken all of the steps necessary to achieve financial independence without worrying about bear markets which can take your head off and leave you with fifty percent of what you started with. A well written book and just what the average guy who is trying to achieve a certain amount of wealth can easily understand and follow. Just do what he says and you too can beat the big boys.

    "Such an Infomercial"

    This audiobook is basically a 3-hour commercial for Vanguard, which is all well and good, but I'm currently in the process of moving my retirement assets out of Vanguard and into TIAA-CREF, mainly due to Vanguard's lack of client support. I work for a university where Vanguard is offered as one of three options for a 403B retirement fund (CREF and Fidelity being the other two). Vanguard is a great company if you're an experienced trader who doesn't need any outside guidance in your investments, but I'm switching to TIAA-CREF because they offer FREE personal consultations with a financial adviser who can help me optimize my retirement investments (they have a local office here), and they sponsor frequent retirement seminars through my employer. I've never been to a Vanguard retirement seminar, because...well...Vanguard doesn't offer them.

    I purchased this book because I thought it might help me with stock investments outside of my retirement fund, but it really offers no such advice. If you have a retirement fund with Vanguard, this is a great book for you. If not, however, it won't do you much good.
