Like chocolate, e-mail is a sweet treat we all savor. But as a favorite mode of communication in this world-one so quick, simple and far-reaching that millions rely on it daily-it’s also become a burden that clogs our inbox, weighs us down, slows our productivity and outright overwhelms us.
_The E-mail Diet Book_ by Martin Siegel and Steve Clapp will change all that. With a humorous approach that compares our e-mail addiction to chocolate (and sweetens the book with a few fabulous chocolate recipes), _The E-mail Diet Book_ shows readers how to take control of their e-mail and make it work for-not against-them.
The book offers practical, easy strategies that students, professionals and home computer users alike can use to limit and most efficiently and effectively deal with incoming and outgoing e-mail. Readers will learn how to defend themselves against spam, identity theft and discourtesy of other e-mailers. They’ll also explore the often-overlooked ways e-mail can improve and streamline communication and productivity among colleagues, those we love and the world at large.
