Description

For a critical element of American society, including many of its wealthiest and most powerful, there seems to be no limit today on what "enough" entails. The excesses are most starkly visible in the continuing crisis in banking and investment, and even in the two enormous government-sponsored (but publicly owned) mortgage lenders, to say nothing of the billion-dollar-plus annual paychecks that top hedge-fund managers draw down and the excessive compensation paid to CEOs, regardless of performance. Throughout his legendary career, John Bogle-founder of the Vanguard mutual fund group, and creator of the first index mutual fund-has helped investors build wealth the right way and led a tireless campaign to restore common sense to the investment world. Along the way, he's seen how destructive an obsession with financial success can be. Now, with Enough, he puts this dilemma in perspective. Bogle offers his unparalleled insights on money, on the values we should emulate in our business and professional callings, and on what we should consider as the true treasures in our lives. By explaining what "enough" truly is, he demonstrates how close everyone can be to having it.

Professional reviews

"For years, John Bogle has warned about the excesses of Wall Street. He says salesmanship has replaced stewardship, resulting in mammoth losses for ordinary investors. If Bogle were a social activist, it would be easy to dismiss this message, the focus of his latest book. But Bogle is the founder of the Vanguard family of funds and a highly successful investor. While hoping to influence policy makers, Bogle wrote his book for educated average readers. While there are points listeners might want to cover a second time, they won't miss the major points during the first reading, delivered capably by Alan Sklar. Bogle himself reads the lengthy autobiographical opening and closing. He has an inviting reading style that engages listeners on a personal level. Sklar's studied style is well suited to the informative middle chapters. R.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
