Taylor,
Just a quick note on a nit in The Bogleheads Guide to the Three-Fund Portfolio. On page xxi, note 1, the word Yachts is missing from the title. I just received the book yesterday and its been a great read so far. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
Best wishes,
JB aka Localhero
I have heard much about that booked but have never read it. Please share your thoughts when you finish.

If you read Taylor's original post in this thread you will have the gist of the book. Taylor is consistent throughout his many posts on this forum. The book describes his investing journey from stock picking to following newsletters to picking funds via Morningstar data ... to reading Jack Bogle's Bogle on Mutual funds and Burton Malkiel's A Random Walk Down Wall Street from which he saw the light. He moved all his investments to Vanguard and has never looked back. It details all the many advantages of total market index funds.
The most important takeaways for me are the simplicity of the scheme, the emphasis on low costs, and the stay the course message.
Recommended read.
Best wishes,
