New Book

So, I got a new book in the mail today from Random House called Send: The Essential Guide to Email for Office and Home by David Shipley and Will Schwalbe. I have not read it yet, but I like the back of the book and thought I would share.

The Eight Deadly Sins of Email

1. The email that's unbelievably vague.
("Remember to do that thing.")

2. The email that insults you so badly that you have to get up from your desk.

3. The email that puts you in jail.
("Please tell them that I asked you to sell that thing when it hit $70.")

4. The email that is cowardly.
("Here's the thing: you're being let go.")

5. The email that won't go away.
(Re:Re:Re:Re:Re:Re:Re: that thing.)

6. The email that's so sarcastic you have to get up from your desk.
("Smooth move on that thing. Really smooth.")

7. The email that's too casual.
("Hiya! Any word on that admissions thing?")

8. The email that's inappropriate.
("Want to come to my hotel room to discuss that thing?")

There you have it, some deadly sins to mull over.


  1. LMAO! Those are cute.

  2. I think I manage to avoid most of them apart from possibly 7 - too casual.


Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

I am so sorry, but I turned anonymous commenting off. I have had it from the very beginning, but that is how the spam is getting by my spam filter at the moment. If it is a big deal I will turn it back on and moderate all comments. I also changed moderation from older than 14 days to older than 7.
