Index Funds: The 12-Step Program for Active Investors is the treatment of choice for wayward investors. John Bogle called Hebner s book "incredibly handsome and wise," while Burton Malkiel stated that "Hebner gives good advice presented in a very appealing manner." Nobel Laureate Paul Samuelson calls it "a valuable reference," and Anders Oldenger of Seligson & Company nominated it as one of the three "All-time Greatest Investment Books," along with the writings of John Bogle and Warren Buffett.
Hebner s book addresses why an overwhelming majority of investors continue to embrace an active investing strategy, despite the extensive academic research demonstrating its ineffectiveness to beat a market index and the overall futility of such a strategy. Speculating on the next winning stock, fund manager, investment style or market timing are all akin to gambling. Below market returns in investment portfolios and pension accounts are the result of investors gambling with their hard earned money. This 12-Step Program will put active investors on the road to recovery. Each step is designed to bring investors closer to embracing a prudent and sound strategy of buying, holding, and rebalancing a risk-calibrated portfolio of passively managed, globally diverse index funds.

Mark T. Hebner is the president of Index Funds Advisors in Irvine, California. His flagship Web site, ifa.com, is considered the leading Internet source of information on index funds. He led a team of over 60 writers, artists, graphic designers, mathematicians, statisticians, and researchers to build the Internet's most comprehensive Web site on index funds. Hebner has been founder, president, and CEO of three companies, one of which became a publicly held corporation. Since discovering the index funds philosophy, he has worked tirelessly to educate the investing public on the advantages of investing in index funds.Review:
Using a 12-Step Program for Active Investors, author Mark T. Hebner delivers investing facts straight-up, with supporting quotes from Nobel Prize winners. The dozens of original art paintings throughout the book (by Lala Ragimov) lend humanity and humor to a serious and thought-provoking subject.
Hebner begins with the little-known fact that markets usually outperform managers, and he sets out to prove this conclusion in a modern, understandable, and intelligent book. After his "lack of understanding of how markets worked had cost me a mind-boggling amount of money, " Hebner researched his portfolio's performance and realized his knowledge could help investors "break these destructive patterns of investing."
The author makes a profound argument for going against the common assumption that investors need to actively manipulate their portfolios in order to out-guess the unpredictable and random attributes of the movements of stocks, markets, managers, and styles.--Joan Phelps - Forward Magazine
