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.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
