Announcing My 100 Book Giveaway!

Dear Friends and Finish Rich Community Members,

small book coverI’m about to do something and share something that has never been done before by us or for that matter most authors in publishing. I’m going to give the first 100 of you that respond to this offer a chance to download and read my eleventh book, pre-publication at absolutely no cost to you.

Start Over, Finish Rich: 10 Steps to Get You Back on Track in 2010

This is very powerful book. It’s super short and super simple. It will change your life and totally motivate you to join in the economic recovery that comes after a recession. The recovery is starting and you cannot afford to miss it. This book is your action plan for 2010.

Here’s Why I’m Doing This

I want my best readers–you!–to read it, review it and tell a friend.

It’s that simple.

For decades, as an author when you promote a book, you, your publisher and publicist reach out to the media with what are called “galleys.” A galley is the “pre-published” edition of a book that gives the media a chance to read it in advance of the public. The obvious reason you send this to the media is to get attention. You hope they will interview and/or review it, and in turn you will reach the public.

This morning it hit me that what really matters to me at this point is reaching YOU, my serious core group of readers. YOU, who send me your thank you emails, your letters, and post your appreciation on my website and on my Facebook page .

I came into the office today and thought, let’s give you a chance to do what the media has always been able to do (read the book and review it before it comes out!)

Now the risk in doing this is that a galley isn’t the final version. It’s not copy-edited, it’s not perfect, and the final edition will have changes. But, its 98% finalized, and its also truly amazing.

My other risk here honestly, is that if we give it away, you won’t buy a copy later. Truthfully, I’m not worried about that. I know if you are a core fan and you read this book and love it as much as I think you will, not only will you buy a copy for yourself, but hopefully you will buy a copy for a friend for the holidays or the New Year.

So Here’s the Deal and Why You Must Act Today

We had to talk my publisher into doing this. Again, it’s relatively unheard of. We’re only going to give access to 100 people to read the galley, at this point. All you have to do is email my team at We’ll take the first hundred of you that respond. We’ll then send your email address to our publisher and they will turn around and send you an invitation to read the book online. IMPORTANT: Please check your “quarantine folder” in case your invitation gets caught in your spam filter. We’ve never done this before, so please just bear with us if it doesn’t all go smoothly. I have no idea how many of you will respond. And I can only promise the first 100 of you will get access.

All I ask of you is this: if you do respond in time and qualify for the galley preview, please open the invitation and read the book. If you like it—please let us know by posting a comment on our Facebook page on or by posting a review on or

I Really Hope You Love Start Over, Finish Rich

And I also hope, in turn, you will share it with your friends and family. This is a very personal book for me. At the end I share my personal Start Over story. It’s a story I haven’t shared with the public yet about my personal struggles these last few years–and my own Start Over experience.

Thank you so much. Enjoy it.

I’m really excited to see what you think. Thank you again for reading my books and giving me the opportunity to be your financial guide in the past, and hopefully the future.

Your friend with best wishes,

David Bach
