Send—the classic guide to email for office and home and an instant success upon its publication in 2007—has become indispensable for readers navigating the impersonal, and at times overwhelming, world of electronic communication. Filled with real-life email success (and horror) stories and a wealth of useful and entertaining examples, Send dissects all the major minefields and pitfalls of email. It provides clear rules for navigating today’s hot-button issues, from bccs and salutations to emoticons and subject lines. It offers essential strategies to help you both better manage the ever-increasing number of emails you receive and improve the ones you send.
In this revised and updated edition, David Shipley and Will Schwalbe have added a new introduction and two new chapters—“Handheld Etiquette” about BlackBerrys, iPhones, etc., and “Secrets to Keep Email from Taking Over Your Life,” an important issue for more and more people. Send is now more than ever the essential book about email for businesspeople and professionals everywhere.
