This encyclopedic reference covers every twist and turn of the rise and (initial) fall of the historic financial bubble – all observed and anticipated in real time via The Elliott Wave Financial Forecast and The Elliott Wave Theorist. This beautiful 8 1/2 x 11 book is well-suited on your coffee table as it is in your library. It's good to simply flip through or dive in deeper to see the events and forecasts as they unfolded.
The Mania Chronicles is a book only in name. Every page includes compelling and often astonishingly accurate forecasts along with the inevitable miscues, to which the authors adjusted as required. In every instance you are there, experiencing events as they happened. From size alone, you can tell that this is not the sort of text you read in a few sittings. It's an encyclopedic resource that includes a full index and table of contents, so you can search by topics that interest you most, whether they be financial or cultural.
This book lives up in scope to the scale of the Financial Bubble and Crisis: 700 large-size pages long, composed entirely of real-time analysis, charts and forecasts published before the events they describe – reproduced as they appeared in the Elliott Wave Theorist and the Elliott Wave Financial Forecast.
To understand today's crisis – and to be prepared for what's still to come – demands a full grasp of how we got here. The Mania Chronicles is the only resource that offers this to you.
