The Bogleheads' Guide to Retirement Planning

I am a big fan of index investing and the investments philosophies of John Bogle, founder of the Vanguard group.  So I was very excited to see that the "Bogleheads" had written a guide to retirement planning.  The Bogleheads are a group of "like-minded" individual investors who follow the general investment and business beliefs of John C. Bogle, founder and former CEO of the Vanguard Group.
