Format: Paperback
I loved it. This is an awesome little booklet that reaches 153 pages in length. I found it to be packed full of wonderful content regarding email authorship, writing & grammar, email program management, and email office policies. It comes across more as a rant since it has 60 short "chapters." I would have liked it better if it had had an introduction and the following 11 chapters:

0. Introduction
1. Basic writing pointers [2-4, 6, 34, 22, 23, 29]
2. Grammar & spelling [25, 26, 28, 30-32]
3. Writing style [10, 5, 36, 42, 11-14, 24, 27]
4. Basic email structure [16, 18, 19, 15, 7, 8, 17]
5. Attachments [20, 21]
6. Reader management [55, 38-40, 58-60]
7. Email marketing [49-51]
8. Instant messaging [52, 53]
9. Email office policies [43-48]
10. Miscellaneous topics [1, 9, 33, 35, 37, 41, 54, 56, 57]
11. Conclusion

The book is published in 2009. As a result I found it a little odd that Instant Messaging , Ezines, and PDA devices were mentioned, but the new social network phenom called Twitter was not. I think the booklet could have been better if Twitter had been mentioned.

Email is probably the largest communication tool used by businesses today. The use of the telephone is becoming less and less, and the reliance on email by business is growing more and more. So many people jump into things that they really don't know how to do well. I see it when people take up swimming, jogging,and bike riding. I definitely see it when people take up golf. And people hack at using email the same way. It is for this reason that I highly recommend everyone in business at least skim this book to check to see if they are doing things appropriately and efficiently. There is a lot of wisdom typed out between this booklet's covers. 5 stars!

PS. I encourage you to examine the Table of Contents for this booklet by going to the Search Inside feature Amazon offers for free.
