Good advice, but read carefully. Most altenative recommendations have performed poorly -

In spite of the title, this book starts by telling you the majority of your investments should be in a low cost diversified portfolio. Pay attention when it makes clear alternative investments are small amounts to reduce portfolio volatility.
Fortunately the book is old enough you can check the 10 years of real performance of their recommended alternative investments. The vast majority of the alternative funds performed poorly and many have been closed. The symbols are no longer valid. This really proves their recommendation to focus on core holdings and not risk much on alternatives.
Buy a used copy and read for education on alternative investments.
