Here is an excerpt from a thoughtful review by Reading the Markets:
Antonacci's extensive research and his clear-headed thinking have led to a book that every investor should read. The academically oriented reader will be grateful for his occasional excursions into the weeds, his carefully laid-out data, and his lengthy bibliography. The practically oriented investor will find a road map for moving ahead and staying out of really big trouble ...This one's a keeper!

Dual Momentum Investing: An Innovative Strategy for Higher Returns with Lower Risk is a must-read for individual investors and financial professionals…Antonacci has done the heavy lifting for his readers by thoroughly researching the history and data behind momentum investing. The result is a well-researched and overwhelming argument for momentum investing. Readers are rewarded with a simple, robust strategy that anyone can implement.
And from Alpha Architect...:
Antonacci demonstrates returns to Dual Momentum and the empirical evidence through extensive backtesting across multiple decades; the analysis includes various risk metrics (returns, standard deviations, Sharpe, drawdowns, etc.), and robustness studies, the interpretation of which he explains in detail, so that the reader can have an informed view of the data.
The evidence culminates in a simple but powerful applied momentum model: Antonacci’s Global Equities Momentum (GEM) strategy, which uses these dual momentum ideas to tactically allocate across and among domestic and international equity and bonds. And the results are nothing short of spectacular: superior returns, with low volatility.
