Overview

Ralph Nelson Elliott (1871-1948) led an adventurous and productive life. He enjoyed a remarkably successful accounting career, including a U.S. State Department appointment, long before he published his first book on the stock market at the age of 67. An inspiration to anyone facing his "declining years," Elliott's evident genius reached full flower in the last decade of his life, when he brought a great gift of knowledge to mankind. Elliott was of that rarest of breeds, a true scholar in the practical world of finance. His revolutionary theory of stock market behavior goes way beyond the usual limitations that are characteristic of the bulk of the literature. As A. Hamilton Bolton, founder of the Bank Credit Analyst, said, "He developed his principle into a rational method of stock market analysis on a scale never before attempted." In fact, the Wave Principle is far more than a useful analytical method. Over the years, it has had a profound effect on those who not only have the ability to recognize a theory of immense practical value, but who can appreciate the aesthetic beauty of the human experience in the abstract. The Wave Principle has fascinated philosophers, mathematicians, psychologists, theologians and financiers alike. Now, after being out of print for decades, the original works of R.N. Elliott have been made available in this one complete volume.
