Invest Like You Give a Damn

Make Money, Change the World, Sleep Well at Night

by Marc de Sousa-Shields



You give a damn, right?

You want your money to do good, but your pension is riddled with oil and defense companies. Besides, investing is a pain in the ass. It's tedious, and most sustainable and responsible investing books are as much fun as a root canal. You're fighting the urge to bury your head in the sand. What to do?

There is a better way.

Invest Like You Give a Damn is a different kind of investment book. It tells real life stories of people just like you. People who give a damn but who have stomped the devil of inertia and chosen to align their money with their values. Coverage includes:

  • Why you need to give a damn about your investments
  • Engaging investor stories to guide financial planning and investment decisions
  • Ground-breaking financial and SRI asset allocation tool for profit and sustainability impact maximization
  • Money makeover profiles
  • How-to investing from one-click to deep-dive portfolio building

Authored by a leading SRI expert and replete with humor and irreverence, Invest Like You Give a Damn is for everyone from college graduates waiting tables, to mid-life Gen Xers, to Boomers who want to live their ideals.

Get it, read it, give a damn!
