Let David Bach show you a whole new way to prosper—by going green.

Internationally renowned financial expert and bestselling author David Bach has always urged readers to put their financial lives in line with their values. But what if your values are a cleaner and greener earth? Most people think that “going green” is an expensive choice they can’t afford. Bach is here to say that you can have both: a life in line with your green values and a million dollars in the bank.

Go Green, Live Rich outlines fifty ways to make your life, your home, your shopping, and your finances greener—and get rich trying. From driving the right car to making your home energy smart, Bach offers ways to improve the environment while you spend less, save more, earn more, and pay fewer taxes. Best of all, he shows you exactly how to take advantage of the “green wave” in personal finance without the difficult work of evaluating individual stocks. What’s more, he will get you thinking about a green business of your own so you can help the world along as it is changing for the better.

David Bach is on a mission to teach the world that you can live a great life by living a green life. With Go Green, Live Rich, you can live in line with your eco-values on the road to financial freedom.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nate | 2/16/2014

    " Not bad. Bach provides a few interesting ways to not only help the environment but to save (and supposedly make) money too. My biggest concern is the authors promotion of bio-diesel. While bio-diesel seemed like a good idea at first, it has been debated that growing plants for fuel will only increase the demand. An increased demand will increase the need for land (goodbye rainforests), make the plants more expensive in the long run, and eventually make food more expensive, particularly for those who have trouble affording it anyway. In other words, read the book. It's interesting and insightful, but take it for what it is: a marketing ploy directed at the go greeners. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Traca | 2/7/2014

    " When I first saw this book I figured Bach had just tried to tap into the latest trend to make his next million. How serious could he be about going green? But I believe he is sincere in his efforts. As far as the content: anyone who is dark green will not find much useful info. But for folks who seem overwhelmed by a greener way of life, this book is a good place to start. Bach does keep it simple in his 50 steps. The book is very well organized and has great resources for anyone who thinks you have to have money to live an eco-friendly lifestyle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristy | 1/29/2014

    " This is a book everyone needs to read. Fast read, great info. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 1/26/2014

    " Quite different in content and style from his other books. I was surprised by this one, but I recommend it for its advice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lucy Vazquez | 1/20/2014

    " Read this in one day. Great read. It's amazing how little things can add up so quickly. I love reading green books. Hopefully once I'm in Texas for good I can read the other green books I own (they're all packed away, sadly). "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Peregrine | 1/15/2014

    " This book is completely amazing - it has great eco tips sliced down into a few pages each addressing a specific topic, discussing both monetary and environmental aspects. While I haven't seen anything thus far that will make me "rich" - he does have some great information that I never knew, such as that some bottled waters are actually just straight tap water (shame on you Pepsi!) and those that are from springs are less heavily regulated than tap water. Wow, eye opening information and enjoyable to read in small doses whenever I have a few spare minutes. Also includes lots of great websites for places I can reference in the future - such as a site with aluminum water bottles so I can tote along my own *free* tap water and not have to worry about the plastic bottle! Yay for tree huggers!! "

    " It was indeed SIMPLE ways to save the earth. These tips were a little too basic for me because I am quite well-read as far as environmental issues are concerned. However, for somebody less "green," it would be helpful. Either way, the book was full of interesting facts--a quick read. "
