News & Opinion: Meet The Bogleheads
We don't do alot with personal finance here and more try to deal with the ups and down of business. I thought this was interesting though.
Wiley has published a book by three moderators from a Morningstar message board. The Diehards forum was started in 1998 and deals with the teachings of John Bogle, founder of Vanguard mutual funds. Their site brings in 25,000 people a day and can have hundreds of posts with people asking questions.
In The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing, Taylor Larimore, Mel Lindauer, and Michael LeBeoeuf are about making it simple for beginners. You will find sections on making sure your savings enough, asset allocation, and taxes. John Bogle has even written the foreword to the book and we have posted it over on the excerpt blog.
