That is an amazing summary! I wonder if any additional books will be written about Jack Bogle’s impact on the investing world as we move forward. There is so much that is still to be told and remembered.

“I challenge the growing trend in our society to give numbers a credence that they simply don’t deserve, all the while assigning far less importance to the things that can’t be expressed with numbers – qualities such as wisdom, integrity, ethics, and commitment.”

Thanks Taylor.
I looked around at the books I have on Jack and I do have that one....been a while since I looked at it.
I intend to go through it as soon as I'm done the book on Charlie Munger.
Thanks for the link about Jason Z's writings about Jack.
I hope you are doing well.

Thank you Taylor for this remarkable article by Jason Zweig. There is so much to explore in this article, it is a remarkable compendium. Must have taken Mr. Zweig quite some time to put it together.

Jason Zweig is an incredible person and writer. I'm sure you'll enjoy this article he wrote in 2016 about his adventures as a young man with his family. It reads like a spell-binding detective story - and gives us clues as to why he often includes art work in his articles and how he became the extraordinary person he is today :D
