Bogleheads Guide to The Three-Fund Portfolio: 200 Ratings. 4 1/2 Stars

Post by Taylor Larimore »

Bogleheads:

Amazon has received 200 4 1/2 Star Buyer Ratings for The Bogleheads Guide to The Three-Fund Portfolio. The result is thousands of dollars in royalties for The John C. Bogle Center for Financial Literacy.

I know that many of the "Buyer Ratings" were from Bogleheads on this forum who bought the book. Please accept my thanks and thanks from the Bogle Center We hope you enjoyed and benefited from the book.

Best wishes.
Taylor

I saw the thread title and thought maybe there was a new edition out on the four-fund (as opposed to three-fund) portfolio! :happy

O2nz and Dottie57:

Thank you for catching my error of "4 funds" vs. "3- funds."

I may have unconsciously added a small-cap value fund. :oops:

I will immediately edit my post.

Best wishes.
