A power-packed explanation of why outperforming the market is an investor illusion. Instead, the man who has been called the conscience of the investment industry recommends a simple, time-tested investment strategy--indexing--that can deliver the greatest return to the greatest number of investors. Why? Investing is a zero sum game where transaction costs, taxes, poor investment diversification, and poor market-timing (an affliction for most investors) hurts your portfolio more than it helps. Indexing eliminates that hurt. Bottom-line, if you can't be an index, why not invest in one. And you'll be all the happier and richer for it.

The book places a strong emphasis for buying low cost index funds and offers lots of evidence for its claim. No more mutual funds for me.
