The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing: Second Edition Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing is a DIY handbook that espouses the sage investment wisdom of John C. Bogle. This witty and wonderful book offers contrarian advice that provides the first step on the road to investment success, illustrating how relying on typical "common sense" promoted by Wall Street is destined to leave you poorer. This updated edition includes new information on backdoor Roth IRAs and ETFs as mainstream buy-and-hold investments, estate taxes and gifting, plus changes to the laws regarding Traditional and Roth IRAs, and 401k and 403b retirement plans. With warnings and principles both precisely accurate and grandly counterintuitive, the Boglehead authors show how beating the market is a zero-sum game.
Investing can be simple, but it's certainly not simplistic. Over the course of 20 years, the followers of John C. Bogle have evolved from a loose association of investors to a major force with the largest and most active non-commercial financial forum on the Internet. The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing brings that communication to you with comprehensive guidance to the investment prowess on display at Bogleheads.org. You'll learn how to craft your own investment strategy using the Bogle-proven methods that have worked for thousands of investors.

This book is something I wish I had read many years ago (If it existed). It is full of sound advice for investors, young and old. I have made some of the mistakes written about in this book and recognize the emotional, knee-jerk reactions, born out of fear and ignorance that can cause so much damage to a retirement plan.
I read the book as soon as I got it and have recommended it to a friend already (a well-educated man who Has made similar mistakes out of fear for losing his wealth).
The key terms are risk tolerance (Asset allocation), a balanced portfolio, tax efficiency and cash management, to name a few that stick in my mind. This book may not be the last book you ever read about financial planning but it will probably switch a light on in your brain and help you understand what good financial advisors already know.
This book will lay out the sensible way to deal with your assets, how to build them and how to manage them. You may retain an advisor also but at least you will know what is happening and why.
This is a book that I highly recommend for new or seasoned investors. Bogleheads are Vanguard enthusiasts because they have been involved with the company but the ideas in the book apply to all investment companies like Fidelity and many others. Vanguard is known for its low cost index funds and offers various services to investors at all levels. Mr. Bogle is a Vanguard founder if not THE founder of Vanguard. The book talks about him. ENJOY!
However the advice is still applicable for other companies like fidelity, that do let people like myself invest with a low minimum.
Book advises: If your broker is a nice guy and you like him, buy him a cup of coffee once in a while, but don't give him your money.
