Book Review: "Naked Words: The Effective 157-Word Email" (Gisela Hausmann)

No matter what your industry, you probably write emails. Most of us do. We email colleagues about the current project or the upcoming meeting. We email administrative assistants about appointments and availability. We email our employers with questions or for clarification.

How do you know that your emails are being read (aside from the ones that garner a response)? How do you know that your emails are as effective and efficient as they could possibly be?

Wonder no more.



In her quick, painless nonfiction guide titled Naked Words: The Effective 157-Word Email, author and life skills expert Gisela Hausmann sets out to debunk the all-too-common idea that the length, format, and style of your professional emails doesn't matter as much as the content.

If you've believed that myth, you would be incorrect.

Hausmann's guide powerfully demonstrates the impact of a brief, precisely worded email, one that stays focused on the subject at hand, pays careful attention to detail, and uses a professional tone. She even includes examples of actual emails and details how and why they are so ineffective in the business world.

Never again will your emails be relegated to any farther down in the recipient's inbox than they deserve. They'll float right to the top, the proverbial cream, because those who receive your emails will know without a doubt that you are a consummate professional who only sends direct, incisive and businesslike messages that deserve to be given top priority.

I invite you to check out this easy-to-read, down-to-earth guide. Your professional reputation will benefit!
