<p><b>The best-selling investing "bible" offers new information, new insights, and new perspectives </b></p> <p><i>The Little Book of Common Sense Investing</i> is the classic guide to getting smart about the market. Legendary mutual fund  pioneer John C. Bogle reveals his key to getting more out of investing: low-cost index funds. Bogle describes the simplest and most effective investment strategy for building wealth over the long term: buy and hold, at very low cost, a mutual fund that tracks a broad stock market Index such as the S&P 500.</p> <p>While the stock market has tumbled and then soared since the first edition of <i>Little Book of Common Sense</i> was published in April 2007, Bogle’s investment principles have endured and served investors well.  This tenth anniversary edition includes updated data and new information but maintains the same long-term perspective as in its predecessor. </p> <p>Bogle has also added two new chapters designed to provide further guidance to investors:  one on asset allocation, the other on retirement investing.</p> <p>A portfolio focused on index funds is the only investment that effectively guarantees your fair share of stock market returns. This strategy is favored by Warren Buffett, who said this about Bogle: “If a statue is ever erected to honor the person who has done the most for American investors, the hands-down choice should be Jack Bogle. For decades, Jack has urged investors to invest in ultra-low-cost index funds. . . . Today, however, he has the satisfaction of knowing that he helped millions of investors realize far better returns on their savings than they otherwise would have earned. He is a hero to them and to me.”</p> <p>Bogle shows you how to make index investing work for you and help you achieve your financial goals, and finds support from some of the world's best financial minds: not only Warren Buffett, but Benjamin Graham, Paul Samuelson, Burton Malkiel, Yale’s David Swensen, Cliff Asness of AQR, and many others.</p> <p>This new edition of <i>The</i> <i>Little Book of Common Sense Investing</i> offers you the same solid strategy as its predecessor for building your financial future.</p> <ul> <li>Build a broadly diversified, low-cost portfolio without the risks of individual stocks, manager selection, or sector rotation.</li> <li>Forget the fads and marketing hype, and focus on what works in the real world.</li> <li>Understand that stock returns are generated by three sources (dividend yield, earnings growth, and change in market valuation) in order to establish rational expectations for stock returns over the coming decade.</li> <li>Recognize that in the long run, business reality  trumps market expectations.</li> <li>Learn how to harness the magic of compounding returns while avoiding the tyranny of compounding costs.</li> </ul> <p>While index investing allows you to sit back and let the market do the work for you, too many investors trade frantically, turning a winner’s game into a loser’s game. <i>The Little Book of Common Sense Investing</i> is a solid guidebook to your financial future.</p>

As Pogo once said, "We have met the enemy and he is us."<br />The tsunami of cheap credit that rolled across the planet between 2002 and 2008 was more than a simple financial phenomenon: it was temptation, offering entire societies the chance to reveal aspects of their characters they could not normally afford to indulge.<br /><br />Icelanders wanted to stop fishing and become investment bankers. The Greeks wanted to turn their country into a piñata stuffed with cash and allow as many citizens as possible to take a whack at it. The Germans wanted to be even more German; the Irish wanted to stop being Irish.<br /><br />Michael Lewis's investigation of bubbles beyond our shores is so brilliantly, sadly hilarious that it leads the American reader to a comfortable complacency: oh, those foolish foreigners. But when he turns a merciless eye on California and Washington, DC, we see that the narrative is a trap baited with humor, and we understand the reckoning that awaits the greatest and greediest of debtor nations.

<b>Author of cult classics <i>The Pumpkin Plan </i>and <i>The Toilet Paper Entrepreneur </i>offers a simple, counterintuitive cash management solution that will help small businesses break out of the doom spiral and achieve instant profitability.</b><br /><br />Conventional accounting uses the logical (albeit, flawed) formula: Sales - Expenses = Profit. The problem is, businesses are run by humans, and humans aren't always logical. Serial entrepreneur Mike Michalowicz has developed a behavioral approach to accounting to flip the formula: Sales - Profit = Expenses. Just as the most effective weight loss strategy is to limit portions by using smaller plates, Michalowicz shows that by taking profit first and apportioning only what remains for expenses, entrepreneurs will transform their businesses from cash-eating monsters to profitable cash cows. Using Michalowicz's Profit First system, readers will learn that:<br /><br />· Following 4 simple principles can simplify accounting and make it easier to manage a profitable business by looking at bank account balances.<br />· A small, profitable business can be worth much more than a large business surviving on its top line.<br />· Businesses that attain early and sustained profitability have a better shot at achieving long-term growth.<br /><br />With dozens of case studies, practical, step-by-step advice, and his signature sense of humor, Michalowicz has the game-changing roadmap for any entrepreneur to make money they always dreamed of.

<b><i>The Black Swan </i>is a standalone book in Nassim Nicholas Taleb’s landmark Incerto series, an investigation of opacity, luck, uncertainty, probability, human error, risk, and decision-making in a world we don’t understand. The other books in the series are <i>Fooled by Randomness, Antifragile, </i>and <i>The Bed of Procrustes</i>.</b><br /><br />A black swan is a highly improbable event with three principal characteristics: It is unpredictable; it carries a massive impact; and, after the fact, we concoct an explanation that makes it appear less random, and more predictable, than it was. The astonishing success of Google was a black swan; so was 9/11. For Nassim Nicholas Taleb, black swans underlie almost everything about our world, from the rise of religions to events in our own personal lives.<br /> <br />Why do we not acknowledge the phenomenon of black swans until after they occur? Part of the answer, according to Taleb, is that humans are hardwired to learn specifics when they should be focused on generalities. We concentrate on things we already know and time and time again fail to take into consideration what we don’t know. We are, therefore, unable to truly estimate opportunities, too vulnerable to the impulse to simplify, narrate, and categorize, and not open enough to rewarding those who can imagine the “impossible.”<br /> <br />For years, Taleb has studied how we fool ourselves into thinking we know more than we actually do. We restrict our thinking to the irrelevant and inconsequential, while large events continue to surprise us and shape our world. In this revelatory book, Taleb explains everything we know about what we don’t know, and this second edition features a new philosophical and empirical essay, “On Robustness and Fragility,” which offers tools to navigate and exploit a Black Swan world.<br /> <br />Elegant, startling, and universal in its applications, <i>The Black Swan</i> will change the way you look at the world. Taleb is a vastly entertaining writer, with wit, irreverence, and unusual stories to tell. He has a polymathic command of subjects ranging from cognitive science to business to probability theory. <i>The Black Swan</i> is a landmark book—itself a black swan.<br /> <br /><b>Praise for Nassim Nicholas Taleb</b><br /><b> </b><br />“The most prophetic voice of all.”<i><b>—GQ</b></i><br /><b><i> </i></b><br /><b>Praise for <i>The Black Swan</i></b><br /> <br />“[A book] that altered modern thinking.”<b>—<i>The Times</i> (London)</b><br /> <br />“A masterpiece.”<b>—Chris Anderson, editor in chief of <i>Wired, </i>author of<i> The Long Tail</i></b><br /><i> </i><br />“Idiosyncratically brilliant.”<b>—Niall Ferguson, <i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br /><i> </i><br />“<i>The Black Swan</i> changed my view of how the world works.”<b>—Daniel Kahneman, Nobel laureate</b><br /> <br />“[Taleb writes] in a style that owes as much to Stephen Colbert as it does to Michel de Montaigne. . . . We eagerly romp with him through the follies of confirmation bias [and] narrative fallacy.”<i><b>—The Wall Street Journal</b></i><br /><i> </i><br />“Hugely enjoyable—compelling . . . easy to dip into.”<b>—<i>Financial Times</i></b><br /><i> </i><br />“Engaging . . . <i>The Black Swan</i> has appealing cheek and admirable ambition.”<i><b>—The New York Times Book Review</b></i><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

<p>The #1 <em>New York Times</em> bestseller: "It is the work of our greatest financial journalist, at the top of his game. And it's essential reading."—Graydon Carter, <em>Vanity Fair</em></p><br />The real story of the crash began in bizarre feeder markets where the sun doesn't shine and the SEC doesn't dare, or bother, to tread: the bond and real estate derivative markets where geeks invent impenetrable securities to profit from the misery of lower- and middle-class Americans who can't pay their debts. The smart people who understood what was or might be happening were paralyzed by hope and fear; in any case, they weren't talking.<br /><br /><br /><br />Michael Lewis creates a fresh, character-driven narrative brimming with indignation and dark humor, a fitting sequel to his #1 bestseller <em>Liar's Poker</em>. Out of a handful of unlikely-really unlikely-heroes, Lewis fashions a story as compelling and unusual as any of his earlier bestsellers, proving yet again that he is the finest and funniest chronicler of our time.
