Read then think before you send

Today’s USA Today Life section carried a positive review of Send: The Essential Guide To Email For Office & Home by David Shipley (New York Times editor) and Will Schwalbe (Hyperion’s Editor in Chief). This book covers one of my fave topics, email etiquette as well as practical ways to think about the medium/tool. The authors have the right point of view: email is supposed to increase our communication quality, not decrease it.

They’ve setup a website to send examples of horrible emails to: Think Before You Send

You can still get a sneak preview of my Dirty Dozen Rules Of Email Etiquette lecture on audio CD as a part of my Whole Enchilada package.

I’m going to buy a copy, because email is my life, and this book sounds like a winner in category.
