"Rick Ferri has done investors a great favor by collecting in one place the consistently overwhelming evidence that index funds keep beating active funds. The only remaining problem for ′passive′ investing is the name. Why don′t we all agree on a single change and call indexing success investing?"

CHARLES D. ELLIS, bestselling author of Winning the Loser′s Game and The Elements of Investing

"Indexing wins because indexing must win. The best index funds win simply because they eliminate management fees and sales loads, and minimize operating costs and portfolio turnover and its costs. But Ferri takes us from theory to reality, providing scores of examples and tabulations that prove that very point. I commend it to you."
JOHN C. BOGLE, founder, The Vanguard Group

"Ferri writes in beautiful, simple language what I have been trying to tell all but the largest institutional investors to build a diversified portfolio of index funds. I wish I had written the book myself."
LAURENCE SIEGEL, Research director, Research Foundation of CFA Institute
