Talk:John Bogle

From Bogleheads
Jump to: navigation, search

I'm surprised that the Retirement book is listed. It implies he is one of the authors of this.

If instead this category is meant to include books about John Bogle, then is would need to include The Bogleheads' Guide to Investment, John Bogle and the Vanguard Experiment, and probably others.

For the moment, it would appear that the attribution of joint authorship for the Retirement book is technically valid, as one can see from the author attribution at Barnes & Noble. I would expect this attribution to be due to Mr. Bogle probably having written a foreward for the book. The other authors listed are all editors of the project. How true authorship is to be parcelled out is anyone's guess. By the way, welcome aboard ! --Blbarnitz 23:24, 24 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm not sure what names will be printed on the final book, but a John Bogle moniker sure ain't gonna hurt sales! ;)
Just for the record, the chapter authors are: Mel and Taylor, Peter Foley, AzRunner, Dan Kohn, EmergDoc, Tfb, Nisiprius, CyberBob, Alex F, Grabiner, mptfan, rschreit, Maywood, jeff mc, OleMeph, gatorman, Lauren Vignec, Dale Maley, Daves.
The editors are: Mel, Rick, Laura, Taylor.
John Bogle wrote the foreword, as he did for The Bogleheads Guide to Investing.

At the time of this post, the Retirement Planning ISBN reference link is broken at Amazon.com. (removed dead link which deprecates the comment below --LadyGeek 21:44, 6 December 2009 (UTC)) LadyGeek 19:29, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Evidently this broken link is a function of this book on the Amazon site. All other ISBN book references seem to correctly link to Amazon. See

The website is missing, discussed in: Yikes! Where did "The Twelve Pillars of Wisdom" go?

The website has since been restored. --LadyGeek 17:36, 27 November 2015 (UTC)

Which symbol follows Bogleheads?

Most of the wiki uses Bogleheads® but this page uses Bogleheads™ in the first sentence. Perhaps someone with better knowledge of the legalities would like to check and make sure the proper mark is being used. --Peculiar Investor 23:34, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

The ™ symbol indicates that an application has been filed with the US Patent Office. Once the application is approved, the symbol is changed to ® - the mark has been registered and approved. I have updated the symbol. --LadyGeek 01:34, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
