Web sites that provide additional information and green products make it easy for me to follow through on the information . The chapters are a quick read with short Go Green Action Steps within as a side bar. I keep putting the book down to think about what David has written. Although I work with charities every year and try to make a difference.- Go Green has opened my eyes- each day we can make changes that are beneficial for our personal health and help the environment. I only wish this was a 10 star system - his book is brilliant!
On the other hand, I don't really believe that David Bach is really an environmentalist. He claims his epiphany was a sick building he was in. Then he somehow extrapolated that to his gas guzzling SUV and then to children and saving the planet. His co-author however, Hillary Rosner, is the one with the credentials. It seems she probably wrote the whole book and David Bach wrote the intro section.
Having just self-published my own book, I've been learning a lot about the publishing industry and some it is very eye-opening. This book feels very packaged, like Bach's publisher decided they needed to cash in on the green trend so they dug up an environmental writer, and then pasted Bach's name on the book.
Does that mean the tips are not valuable? No, but they are very simplistic. I think most people know now that fluorescent light bulbs use less energy.
It's a pretty book, it's easy to read and it's definitely aimed at people who are new to the environmental movement. I just feel there should be more integrity behind the message. For example, if I wanted advice on how to raise my children, I'd prefer to get it from someone who was passionate about kids even if the person who didn't care about kids also had good information.
Anyone who truly lives a green lifestyle knows that it's not really cheaper to be green. It actually costs more, but you're willing to pay for it because it's the right thing to do.
So, three stars because the book is great for a green newbie. One star if you already know the tip about the light bulbs.
