This book contains lots of information, some of which useful for a research/investigation on Green IT options for my company. But the problem is the structure and logical flow of the whole book as well as where specific information/examples are used within it. In fact some times I had to skim through several chapters to find that useful bit of information I read earlier. There are a couple of other books (that I also bought from Amazon) that helped me more than this one.
As one plus is a very detailed overview of the regulations in all continents with tvery US state too (the whole book has definitely an "American" style).

Green IT not Just for Dummies 14 Dec. 2009
By M. Cohen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are directly responsible for IT planning or just want to learn more about it, Green IT For Dummies gives you the clear, complete practical and specific information you need to save energy in your computing infrastructure.

I like the way the book walks you through the why's and how's of creating a more Green (more efficient and less costly) IT operation. The book covers:
- The benefits of Green IT
- How to determine your current IT energy costs and efficiency
- How to develop, market, and implement a Green IT strategy
- How to get down in the trenches and get more processing per Kilowatt hour
- How to use IT power to save energy throughout the business by reducing paper, reducing travel
- How to motivate the work force to take part
- How to monitor progress and manage the plan

The topics covered go all the way from "big iron" server farms to desktops, from CPU RAM Virtualization to saving money and energy on toner cartridges and paper. The book does sites specific brand names, specific web URL's for further reference,. and gives you the information you need to actually get the job done.

It is a readable, practical guide that will be pretty well dog eared and scribbled on as you go about planning and implementing a Green IT strategy.
