The Little Book of Common Sense Investing audiobook cover art

Liked the book, yes it’s completely about indexing. But it’s not possible to replace the whole book with some summaries like “buy low cost index funds”, they don’t explain why. The book explains why and how indexing works, has a lot of references to other people (Graham and Buffet and many others). Has some practical advice about your portfolio (at the end). It’s recommended in a lot of places starting with reddit and ending with Buffet

Ps I took one star out of the performance section because it has some details which makes listening much harder, e.g. in some examples when they compare differences it would be much simpler to comprehend something like “approach A gives you less than 96 thousand when B more than 135” instead of “A gives you 95, 543 when B 135, 847”. But overall it’s much easier to listen to than “the intelligent Investor”

In the middle of the book I decided to google it and was disappointed. First of all the book story is fictional as the author admitted later. All the sources point to inaccurate factual information in the book and questionable practices the author uses in real life, which makes a good point that he’s probably a teacher you want to avoid
