Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"There is an old Arab proverb which says that "When you go shopping for wisdom, visit every tent in the bazaar." When Robert Prechter published his first book in 1978 predicting the super bull market of the 1980's, only a very few people visited his tent. I hope more people visit his tent today, in order to understand the financial, economic and social implications of At the Crest of the Tidal Wave.", Marc Faber, , Faber Ltd, Hong Kong#"Robert Prechter and R.N. Elliot will be remembered as the two greatest social scientists of this century for their understanding of mass psychology, markets and the economy.", Donald Evans, President, FX500 Money Management#"The icy logic and stunning originality with which Prechter predicts the impending death of our Grand Bull Market make At the Crest of the Tidal Wave eminently worthy of attention. But the fact that years ago this author virtually stood alone in prophesying the birth of this very same bull market renders his current vision absolutely indispensable to serious investors.

", Paul Macrae Montgomery , , Legg Mason Wood Walker#"Recently I finished reading for the third time Charles Mackay's classic, Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds, first published in 1841. Not much has changed, and here we are at yet another turning point in history... At the Crest of the Tidal Wave probably will join Mackay's famous book as one of the most prescient of the past 175 years.", Charles Allmon, President , Growth Stock Outlook#"At the Crest of the Tidal Wave is a brilliant and important piece of long wave research with potentially devastating investment implications for the future.", Paul Tudor Jones II, President, Tudor Investment Corp#"The scholarly discipline, ultra long-term historical perspective, and topical diversity of Robert Prechter's discerning At the Crest of the Tidal Wave will challenge all serious investors to re-examine today's "buy and hold" mantra.", Henry Van der Eb, Chairman, Mathers Fund#
