Alternative Investment Book List

If you have spent a lot of time on the Alternative Investment Education section of Attain's website and are still searching for more, the following list of alternative investment books should keep you busy for a while.

This recommended reading list of sorts includes some of the most thought provoking and interesting books we know of at Attain focusing on (or at least touching on) alternative investments. The list doesn't include hands on, how to, books which tell you to buy here and sell there. We frankly find those pretty boring. These are actually stories in their own right, whose interesting characters just happen to be real life traders/investors mixed up in one way or another with the world of investing.

But life isn't all markets and statistics, or so they tell me, and the following two non-market related books are good reads we felt belonged on this list.

We hope you found a book or two on our short list which piqued your interest, and look forward to hearing your thoughts on any of the above. Hopefully some friendly debates on statistical randomness, whether oil really started this war or that, or whether Long Term Capital Management would have profited on their positions will surface.

IN THE MEANTIME, IF YOU HAVE SOME MUST READS OF YOUR OWN THAT TOUCH ON ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS - WE WOULD LOVE TO HEAR WHAT THEY ARE. EMAIL YOUR FAVORITES TO INVEST@ATTAINCAPITAL.COM OR CALL US AT 800.311.1145
