|Green IT in Practice: How One Company is Approaching the Greening of its IT
by Gary Hird
"There has been a flood of books on Green IT but most fail to get the pitch right: they are either too simplistic or become bogged down in the technologies, issues and science. Gary Hird’s short book is a valuable, clear primer, based on real experience."

"The book is extremely well organized and easy to follow. Each chapter has a very good introduction and comprehensive summary. This book could easily serve as a blueprint for organizations to follow when they look for ideas on how to design new data centers. It's a great addition to an IT Bookshelf."
