A book about investor misconceptions

"Every day I see numbers that, if not outright lies, grossly distort reality."
John Bogle

This book is an anthology of recent articles and speeches on the topics that most concern the author: the exorbitant cost of financial intermediaries; the shameful failure of companies to meet their fiduciary obligations; the dismal triumph of emotion over sober reason in so many investment decisions and the resulting victory speculation over investing.

Why Don't Believe the Numbers!" is worth reading

  • This book was written by the legendary financier, called the father of index investing.
  • After reading it, you will understand why it makes no sense to try to beat the market, seeking great returns - on the contrary, you need to cooperate with it and keenly catch any of its movements.
  • You will learn to think for yourself without relying on others' conclusions and to be as critical as possible of the numbers.
