What disappointed you about The Little Book of Common Sense Investing?
I was excited to read this updated version with new numbers, but the PDF file is missing. Not the Authors problem, he is excellent. Bad quality at Audible :-(
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Little Book of Common Sense Investing?
Half way through, will complete it when I get the PDF.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
No. This book can be summed up in one sentence, any normal person wanting to invest should do it in a vanguard S&P 500 Index fund.
What was most disappointing about John C. Bogle’s story?
This was written by the person who founded Vanguard group. The entire point of the book is to get people to buy his index funds. Its like reading a timeshare presentation.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of L. J. Ganser?
Sounded like a shady salesmen, but I think that is more fault of the writing.
Who do you think would benefit most from listening to The Little Book of Common Sense Investing?
Those who want to invest for the very long term with little effort as possible. Not a book for those looking to understand stock trading.
Any additional comments?
This book is full of a bias view on Vanguard index funds. Its a timeshare presentation. Now I do agree index funds are great. I will put some of my portfolio into S&P 500 index fund. But I am also planning to get into stock trading. I do plan to put effort into it. This book assumes anyone outside of finance doesnt want to put in any effort into stock trading...nor should they. "Dont take my word for it!" Half the book is this statement followed by some story by some known investor celebrity. To sell the author's company index fund...of course.
