Robert Edwards description and analysis of the Dow Theory is, as Professor Bassetti so astutely states on page 48, a ¿magisterial presentation¿. I am proud to have been asked to add my interpretation to the update since Dr. Edwards death. Believe it or not, the Dow Theory is alive and well in the 21st Century and this book will help you understand why.
