    Green Reading Ideas

    This book is well organized and gives you a wonderful insight as to the competiveness and the incredible steps that companies are taking to position themselves in their market place. I found it fascinating just reading about the different technologies that are being used to come up with solutions within each sector. The book throws caution to the wind about which company to invest in, but if interested in this type of investing this is a good start.

    Attracted to clean technology, Read This Book!

    Jack Uldrich creates an interesting and very well researched guide for those attracted to clean technology both the beginner investor wanting to make environmentally aware investments and experienced investors looking for information on wind, solar, biofuels and other clean tech will benefit from this book. I would recommend for those people interested in environmental investing in specific technologies like biofuels 'chapter 4', solar investing 'chapter 5' or wind investing 'chapter 6' read that chapter first. Then proceed to chapter 7, Alternative Energies, where Green Investing covers geothermal, fuel cell, wave and clean coal investment opportunities. In my opinion chapter 8 on energy conservation shows the most promise for short term investing, in regards to clean technologies, and make the purchase price of the book a great investment - well worth the purchase price. To go on the author, Jack Uldrich, does a great job of presenting facts and research on the green tech companies and to his credit he keeps the passion 'hype' out of the presentation. Having read several of his books, and heard him speak on a few occasions, if you want passion on future technology you can¿t go wrong with one of his other books, in fact you must read: ¿Jump the Curve¿ '2008' and ¿The Next Big Thing is Really Small¿ '2003'.
