Investing Made Simple Now Available on Amazon

As of today, Investing Made Simple is available on Amazon. Of course, as promised, it will still be available as a free download through the end of the month.

A Favor to Ask:

If you downloaded the book and found it to be helpful, I’d be super appreciative if you took 3-4 minutes to click over to Amazon and write a short, 2-sentence review explaining what you liked about it.

Of course, there’s no obligation to do this. The idea was to release the book free, not “free with a catch.”

A Testimonial:

"A wonderful book that tells its readers, with simple logical explanations, our Boglehead Philosophy for successful investing." - Taylor Larimore, author of The Bogleheads' Guide to Investing


  1. How can anyone not like your book? It’s another great read and everyone should go line up to write a review over at Amazon!

  2. I don’t think it would be such a bad thing if some people criticized the ideas in the book as I view controversy as a good sign — it means you are shaking people up and that often leads to growth experiences.

    But I certainly agree that it would be nice if those who got free copies and learned from it would pay it back (not just to Mile but to the entire indexing community) by taking the time to write a brief review. People want to know what others think before putting their money down and Mike cannot do that part along — he needs the rest of us to pitch in a bit. This is high-ethics marketing, in my assessment. We all need to sell ourselves if we are going to have an effect. Mike is doing it in a clean way and that gives me a good feeling about his entire project. I of course wish him success with this.
