In Conquer the Crash, Robert Prechter explains why he thinks the boom times are behind us. Based on his interpretation of the Elliott Wave principle (an idea premised on the notion that mass investor psychology is what really drives markets), Prechter believes that the U.S. economy is about to enter into a deflationary depression that few investors are prepared to deal with. In making his case, Prechter assembles an impressive array of data that in essence suggests that the bill for the last 10 years of market excess is about to come due. The second half of the book shows how to avoid becoming "a zombie-eyed victim of the depression" and offers advice on protecting one's assets in a deflationary environment (cash is king). If there's any good news in the future that Prechter sees coming (other than how to avoid it), it's that all-out depressions don't last very long. Conquer the Crash should appeal to gloom-and-doom investors and to those desperately looking for a safe haven from the uncertainties of today's markets. --Harry C. Edwards --This text refers to an alternate Hardcover edition.
"Conquer the Crash with This Important Book: All of the analysis and insight from the original edition is included in the new second edition. But Prechter has added 188 pages of entirely new material, and every one of the book's pages is worth reading and re-reading, even if your copy of the original edition is coffee-stained and dog-eared."
—Tim Bost, Financial Cycles Newsletter
"Prechter's advice for most investors, as described in the recently released second edition of his book [Conquer the Crash], is fairly simple: Play it Safe…Patience is a Virtue…Return of Capital Is Key."
—Aaron Task, Yahoo Finance
