Format: Paperback
Joe Hutsko gives instructions for conserving energy with gadgets you already have along with what to look for when buying new gadgets and how to recycle old, less efficient ones. The Dummies format is easy to read and follow and, as always, has tips that even those who thought they knew everything about the subject will find useful. Green Gadgets for Dummies is a handy book for anyone who loves gadgets and/or wants to have a gentler impact on our environment.

Format: Paperback
This is an incredibly written and interesting book where the author takes you through how to find green gadgets, make the gadgets you already own run more efficiently, and what to do with them once they've run their course. Mix in great information with wit, humor, and a laid back attitude and this is THE book for any gadget geek to own. It'll help you save money from cutting out wasted energy and help save the environment. Well done.

I will admit that I am truly a "Green Gadgets Dummy". With that said - I have found the book to be very informative and I know the advice will be very useful. Certainly a valuable reference book to keep near by.
