.......I should have read the product description more carefully. An earlier reviewer above, Mr C Wemyss, said that he, as indeed I did, thought that the book would contain more or less only a series of emails that for varied reasons were a bit of a disaster or funny etc. and not mostly narrative surrounding the sending of the emails.

I was, therefore unprepared for the books format, as it was not what I was expecting nor particularly wanted, and consequently couldn't really get past the first few chapters. I enjoy collections of wit, jokes, quotes etc but unadorned with too much supplemental commentary. Shallow minded you may ask? Probably, but not my cup of tea!

It is hard to believe that people are so stupid! It seems that once you have an email account, your brain goes to sleep. I really enjoyed this book and had a good laugh at some of the emails people have sent. Some were sent to (so-called) friends, who passed them on 'for a laugh', others went direct to lots of people by the use of 'reply all' button.
If you send emails on a regular basis - especially at work - you need to read this book. For everyone else, have a good laugh at the emails that have landed on bosses desks, then make sure your don't.

I bought the book because it was a good, light-hearted present and ended up reading it myself on the train home, so I had to go out and buy another one. It does what it says on the cover, it's a great little read and then it's really fun to regale other people with the stories in it afterwards.

I went with this book because the topic does sound very funny and the reviews where very good but i just didnt like this one bit in fact it was a very boring book to read. You dont get to read the actual e-mails sent you just get the long winded version of events.
If you want a funny internet book i would recommend e-luv.
