Enough by John Bogle

“Enough” by John Bogle – Review & Introduction


Reading can be broken into 3 levels: skimming, reading, & absorbing. Each level represents an increasing amount of interaction. Ideally, the more thought that’s put into the process – the more you should get out of it in the end.

Although a short read at 250+ pages, John Bogle’s Enough fell under the last category as: each, individual word was read, breaks were taken between sections, and some were even re-read in an effort to fully grasp the concepts.

Monday, May 31st – Review & Introduction

Wednesday, June 2nd – Business (Ch 4 – 7)

Thursday, June 3rd – Life (Ch 8 – 10)
