While the book does a very good job covering the topics, in the end it is more a review book to these investments and really does not help one either (1) create a game plan to build a portfolio on of Alternative Investments or (2) help learn how to find the real gems. Though in Bob Rice's defense he does say that many of the true AI investment gems are either closed or only available if you have 7 or 8 figure investments.
In the end it would be nice if Bob would have given some guidance how to find these investments, how to evaluate them, and how those of us who have saved $ but are not ultra wealthy can leverage AI.
For a reference book and general background, A. For a how to guide, I am not so generous.
I especially appreciated the section on Portfolio construction, namely, breaking down your assets into 4 different categories:
•Job 1 (income)
•Job 2 (risk reducers)
•Job 3 (return enhancers)
•Job 4 (purchase power protection)
I have incorporated these categories into my own portfolio.

Alternative Investments are a must as long as we have Washington, DC.
Income, Risk Reducers, Return Enhances, and Purchase Power Protection is the focus.
