Great book for understating the dynamics and past historical facade of mutual fund investing. Teaches great basics of mutual funds, stocks and bonds but as the title states mostly mutual funds. Great read if you want help deciding where you want to put your money, A must buy for anyone looking to grow their money.
It may have a new Copyright date but it has old information. Take for instance, Chapter 5. Here's a quote ... Bond fund assets have grown from just $4 Billion in 1970 ... to $510 Billion at the end of 1992. Or how about Figure 6-2 in Chapter 6 that shows Money Market yields from 1983-1992. It doesn't appear that any information was updated past 1992 values. The 2015 Introduction goes into how "Bogle on Mutual Funds Became a Classic". Great! Congrats to the author and Wiley Publications. But I'm pretty sure you could get the same info from the old version. I don't own the old version but it kind of looks like I do - other than the intro and a copyright date. Really a disappointment.
Highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to learn more about investing in mutual funds for long term investments. Has great chapters on the effects of costs, taxes impacts on your returns that other financial and investment books have avoided.
