Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Bach (The Automatic Millionaire; Start Late, Finish Rich) offers a multitude of suggestions for conserving the planet—and your money—in this attractive and accessible guide. A few of Bach's tips require making a serious commitment (growing your own vegetables, using recyclable energy, trading in your car for a fuel-efficient model); others such as unplugging unused appliances, switching to compact fluorescent bulbs and eating less meat are simple—if familiar—ways to go green. Bach also advocates making environmental consciousness a family value (spending more family time in nature, taking volunteer vacations), greening holidays by using recycled wrapping paper, sending e-cards and tree-cycling. Bach clarifies how the most conservative changes in lifestyle can yield radical results: If every U.S. computer and monitor were turned off at night, the nation could shut eight large power stations and avoid emitting 7 million tons of CO2 every year. In the Finish Rich section, Bach turns his attention from going green to getting green—investing the money you save in eco-friendly businesses. A winning and wise guide, this book—printed on recycled paper with proceeds going to a green advocacy group—will find a large audience. (Apr.)

Having read several of David's other New York Times Best Sellers on finances, saving money and living wisely I expected this book, Go Green, Live Rich to be interesting. Go Green is spectacular- a wealth of information, how to make small changes that will impact the planet and still be easy to do and improve my life. And the added bonus of
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!

The author presents a grocery list of helpful changes that can save you and the environment. Some are common sense, like favoring high MPG vehicles, while others might not seem like such a great deal until you crunch some numbers and look at statistics. For what it is, the author did a good job but I'm not sure it's worth the normal purchase price. Mostof the information can be found for a little Internet research yourself. Indeed, that's where most of the author's information comes from. Buy it only to save yourself a few Google searches.

The book is really little more than a bullet list of ways to go green - in that respect it is useful for triggering ideas - but it does not really go into depth on anything or tell you how to do things. For this it simply points you to web sites, so it is a bit of a cop-out! Feels lacking in solid research by the author (he probably just "googled" everything in the book), feels like a rush-job. Disappointed to see biofuels recommended. Yes, let's run our cars on food while millions starve. That should work!

I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, it presents a simple list of green things to do and it probably reaches an audience who would not normally think about doing them. For that, I applaud it. If everyone made small changes, collectively, it would have a significant impact.

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.

In typical David Bach fashion, he has simply restated the obvious, added a snappy title and failed to come up with even one new or original idea of his own. Need an example? How about Tip #3: Increase Your Fuel Economy by downsizing from your SUV or big truck which averages 18 mpg, to a Honda Civic which averages 36 mpg on the highway and 25 mpg in the city. Brilliant and terribly, terribly obvious. I recommend saving your green and your time.

Many tips fall under the category of obvious, such as maintaining your home and automobile to save money and resources. This wouldn't be too bad on its own, but many of the extreme green tips are questionable in practicality or point. For example, Bach suggests taking your home off the grid by going completely solar without any mention of what to do at night when the sun doesn't shine. The silliest suggestion is using recycled toilet paper instead of the soft stuff made from "virgin fiber" that comes from "old growth trees, and entire forests of them are clear-cut in order to produce it". This forty year old argument is just plain wrong considering that the forest community plants over 1.5 billion trees a year in the US and forests are growing at rate faster than they are harvested according to [...]. Overall the book is disappointing compared to Bach's previous works. I was really hoping for some innovative, practical, and well researched ideas. It seemed like if an organization said something was green then it made it in the book regardless of what more thorough research might have said.
