Go Green, Live Rich: 50 Simple Ways to Save the Earth and Get Rich Trying [

[November 2009] This book is nothing more than a string of factoids about "simple things" that can be done to save money and save the environment. Many are simplistic (don't buy fast food every day), while some tend to be inaccurate ('bulk bins' at grocery store have a tendency to be more expensive and still are 'packaged'.)
At times, the author seems like s shill for various companies and organizations. (Many of these seem to be worthwhile. However, there also seem to be many that are left out.
It is also baffling that they made this in to an audiobook. The 50 "simple ways" each have a bit of narrative, a number of factoids, and then a list of a bunch of web sites. Not the most compelling listening experience.
