Hi all,

There used to be a site John used to maintain (back in late 90s and early 00 period) and it was perfect for quick read on Total Market investing and Efficient Market Hypothesis. Does anyone know what happened to it?

John Norstad was one of the most valuable diehard contributors to ever grace the Boglehead forums. John's website is still there. This is the link:

John Norstad's Finance Page

One of John's best:

Investing in Total Markets

Best wishes.

Yes, the one on Total Markets. Thanks a lot Taylor!

Great to see John organized his writing into a site. Kudos John!!! You should write a book even if you don't want to make money from it :)

I did write a book - it's the finance page on my web site, I just didn't get it published by a third party!

The series of "homework" papers on MPT, when smashed together in order from first to last, is pretty much indistinguishable from a book.

But that book is heavy on math. If you mean a popular book on investing, I have no interest in that. Too much work, and I have nothing much to add to the practical advice of John Bogle and many others, several of whom are great authors who post or have posted in this forum.
