Handbook of Alternative Assets by Peter Temple
Remember how back in the early 90s there used to be books that were just big long lists of URLs, each with a tiny blurb attached to them? Temple's book purportedly discusses assets other than the typical stocks, bonds, and their derivatives (options, futures, etc.). It is actually more of an advertising vehicle.
Which was given away by the full-bleed-color advertisements facing each chapter. Alternatives are apparently for fools now. I await the crash. ;)
