Overview : E-Writing @ Work: Getting a Grip on the Silly Stuff We Do with E-mail on the Job E-mail is the number one most widely used communication tool in business today; it surpassed the telephone for follow-up required communication years ago. |

It's true. You're writing these memos and sending e-mails---and no one's reading them.
