Send: The Essential Guide to Email for Office and Home

David Shipley, Author, Will Schwalbe, Author, David Shipley, Read by Random House Audio Assets $19.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-7393-4435-4
Despite a subtitle indicating both workplace and domestic e-mail solutions, veteran editors Shipley and Schwalbe get right down to business in the audio edition of their book, shining a bright light on the pitfalls of cyberspace that sabotage careers. Given the brevity of their recording, such focus is practical. Shipley and Schwalbe present their material in an easy conversational style, invoking just enough self-deprecating humor to keep listeners relaxed and grounded without getting off track. They cover a myriad of large and small electronic sins: improper uses of the CC and BCC fields; lack of decorum and deference appropriate to professional relationships; delicate revelations that should only be tackled in a face-to-face encounter; and potentially threatening or offensive language. This is a well-organized defensive driving course for beginners-or recent offenders-traveling the information superhighway in a contemporary office setting. This audiobook belongs on the shelves of resources at college job-placement offices and in corporate training or professional development departments. Simultaneous release with the Knopf hardcover (Reviews, Mar. 26).
