Knut A. Rostad, editor of The Man in the Arena , is the founder and President of the Institute for the Fiduciary Standard, a nonprofit organization that advances fiduciary principles through research, education, and advocacy.
"This compilation of John C. Bogle's essays on indexing, fiduciary responsibility, and corporate governance, together with transcripts of talks and discussions, is a fitting tribute to the founder of the Vanguard Group, who has consistently advocated putting clients' interests first and has tirelessly imparted the message that investors would be far wealthier if they invested in low-cost index funds...The world would be a better place if more of our business and political leaders emulated John Bogle's values, ethics, and integrity." -- CFA Institute
