Directionally correct, but outdated

This was not a value purchase and I think that there are far better alternatives. The main take-away is that low cost index funds, properly allocated beat actively managed funds. There is a strong recommendation to avoid international funds, which is a big miss as asset allocation models of today include international investments usually proportional to capitalization. For the price and the content better value can be found elsewhere. That being said, we all owe Bogle gratitude for being an early pioneer in asset allocation and low cost funds.
