Common Sense on Mutual Funds: New Imperatives for the Intelligent Investor, written by John Bogle, is a book advising investors about mutual funds, with a focus on the praise of index funds and the importance of having a long term strategy. On the dust jacket cover, Jim Cramer wrote, "After a lifetime of picking stocks, I have to admit that (Vanguard Group founder John) Bogle's arguments in favor of the index fund have me thinking of joining him rather than trying to beat him."[1]
