Like most of humankind's great theories, the cyclical view of theuniverse is at once elegant in its sim-plicity and utterly persuasive.Scholars, pundits, and experts in all walks of life—from Carl Jung toArthur Schlesinger and from Paul Volcker to Lee Iacocca—proclaim thevalidity of cycles. In this fascinating work, Samuel A. Schreiner, Jr.,spells out in layperson's terms how to look for patterns inunpredictable environments and how to spot the recurring forces thatcan predict changes in one's health, moods, and relationships, infinancial investments, the weather, politics, and the state of theworld.

Incorporating over fifty years of research on hundreds ofdifferent cycles by scientists affiliated with the Foundation for theStudy of Cycles, The World Ac-cording to Cyclesenables readers to recognize many naturally recurring patterns in theirdaily lives. Scientists affiliated with the Foundation have correctlypredicted such events as the 1987 stock market crash, a killerearthquake in Armenia, and the 1988 U.S. presidential election.

The World According to Cycles will help readers develop theability to predict a wide variety of occurrences so they can apply agreater understanding of the rhythms of everyday existence to theirpersonal relationships, emotional well-being, employer-employeerelations, and judgment and decision-making in business and finance.
