Pretty good article looking that the hype and nonhype. Overall somewhat favorable to the technology.

Their bottom line, from page 5:

Hybrids are not the stuff of magic. Nor are they mere snake oil. What both the boosters and bashers need to realize is that hybrid technology is not meant as a revolutionary advance. It is simply a refinement of the same internal-combustion-powered drivetrain we've had in our cars and trucks for more than a century. But we believe it is an important refinement--especially for larger, more fuel-hungry vehicles.
