Praise for ANTs

Using Alternative and Non-Traditional Investments to Allocate Your Assets in an Uncertain World

"Finally, recognition by a respected strategist that there's an investment world beyond stocks and bonds. 'Dr. Bob' offers real opportunities to diversify your assets, hedge your dollar bets, and develop an investment portfolio that will withstand the devaluation of paper money."
—Terry Savage, author, The Savage Truth on Money and The Savage Number

"Dr. Bob's latest book is a must-read for every individual investor. ANTs addresses the two most common mistakes of retail investors. Number one, they try to do it alone without the help of a financial advisor and number two, in our interconnected global marketplace, they do not have enough exposure to non-traditional asset classes like commodities and currencies. ANTs shows you how to fix both of these mistakes with a common sense strategy that is purely 'Dr. Bob' at his finest."
—William (Bill) Glavin, Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer, Oppenheimer Funds, Inc.

"Bob Froehlich has done it again, addressing the major changes that have taken place in our securities markets and the opportunities they have created for the average investor. He explains non-traditional investments in a clear and concise manner. Thanks, Bob."
—Ian B. Davidson, Chairman, the Davidson Companies and D.A. Davidson & Co.

"Bob Froehlich brings a unique perspective to the world of investing, sharing with his readers a viewpoint that is particularly helpful in times of uncertainty. Diversification into alternatives is best accomplished with the assistance of a wise guide. Bob is that guide. His use of ANTs demonstrates his mastery at taking complex ideas and making them understandable to readers with diverse investment backgrounds and experiences."
—Mark Casady, Chairman and CEO, LPL Financial
