Today’s Wall Street Journal included an op-ed written by Mr. Bogle. It’s available at the link below.
Many eBlog readers have asked about the availability of an audio version of Mr. Bogle’s newest book, Enough. True Measures of Money, Business, and Life. The audio version is now available on Amazon and at other retailers. In it, Mr. Bogle reads the book’s Introduction and Afterword.
He also sent out the message below to veteran Vanguard crew members:

Wrapping up 2008
For your information, I’m attaching the following documents:
1 – My December 10, 2008 speech to the Community College of Philadelphia.
3 – A wonderful reaffirmation of my thesis that Wall Street subtracts value from society, in a New York Times article fairly described as “Bogle without the steroids.”
4 -Four of the more significant reviews of Enough. including an incredibly generous appraisal from Tom Peters. There must be a score of them-all favorable-in the blogosphere, but The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal have yet to oblige. (In today’s Information-Society, that may not even matter!)
5 – On December 27, Wellington Fund celebrated the 80th anniversary of its founding in 2008. With the death of State Street Investment Trust several years ago, we are now one of only three mutual funds that have endured for eight decades. In January, I’ll be updating my 75th Anniversary essay and circulating it among you.
Best wishes to all for 2009, which I have little doubt will be another year of challenge for the financial sector, our industry, and our firm.
