Praise for The MAN in the ARENA

"A thoroughly impressive tribute to the very best friend the investor has ever had."
Ben Stein

"A measure of a person′s life is this: Did you leave the world a better place? In the case of Jack Bogle, it′s a question that is laughably easy to answer. From millions of ordinary investors, you would hear a rousing chorus of feet–stomping, stadium–shaking cheers. And those cheers are richly deserved, as you′ll discover when reading about ′The Man in the Arena′ and all that he has done for his fellow citizens."
Jonathan Clements, former personal finance columnist for the Wall Street Journal and author of The Little Book of Main Street Money

"Jack Bogle is one of a small handful of people who made the investing world serve the hopes and dreams of ordinary people. Whatever his subject, he speaks and writes from a strong, moral belief that finance should be simple, honest, and fair."
Jane Bryant Quinn author of Making the Most of Your Money Now

This compilation of John C. Bogle s essays on indexing, fiduciary responsibility, and corporate governance, together with transcripts of talks and discussions, is a fitting tribute to the founder of the Vanguard Group, who has consistently advocated putting clients interests first and has tirelessly imparted the message that investors would be far wealthier if they invested in low–cost index funds .The world would be a better place if more of our business and political leaders emulated John Bogle s values, ethics, and integrity.
