Content is fine, adaption to audio is terrible

The content is like a long form blog post series. The narration is clear, but the adaption from print to audiobook format is the worst I've ever heard. Prepare to listen to a lot of web addresses spelled out letter by letter and citations detailed to the page number.

A glorified blog post

Buy 3 index funds.
20% Bond Market, 30% International Market, 50% Total US Stock Market
Vanguard is the greatest stock brokerage that has ever existed.

Fantastic book

I am a big fan of John Bogle's books. He has made investing simple and more effective for me. I liked this Bogleheads book as it is line with John Bogle's teaching, and helped answer some questions I have, particularly regarding investing in international stock funds. The dictation of web addresses and tables could potentially have been put into "exhibits" like Bogle's new edition of little guide to investing. Overall highly recommended!
