Description


Patricia T. O'Conner, the bestselling language maven who demystified grammar (Woe Is I) and writing (Words Fail Me) for legions of delighted readers, now takes on the challenge of polishing our electronic language skills.

E-mail and the Internet need not be the death of good writing. In fact, the computer could be the best thing to happen to literacy since the printing press. Since we're all writing all the time, You Send Me helps us polish up our language and social skills in cyberspace.

Dealing with subjects like etiquette ("To E or Not to E"), beefier writing ("The E-Mail Eunuch"), and civilized English ("Go Configure"), the authors deliver everything you need to know to achieve virtual savvy. If you'd like to upgrade your e-mail and other online writing, this is the book for you.
