Common Sense on Mutual Funds, by John C. Bogle
“In all my reading about personal finance, no one has affected my thinking more than Bogle. He created low-cost index mutual funds for individual investors—the best way I know of for the average person to invest for the future. Bogle wrote many books explaining careful investing, but I think this one is the best.”
