Great Email Disasters product reviews

Email is convenient but highly dangerous. With an ill-considered click of the mouse you can humiliate yourself in front of millions, lose your job or even end up in court.

Great Email Disasters brings together the funniest, scariest and wierdest stories of inbox ignomy. Meet the sheepish stars of the world wide web.

WARNING! These stories will make your toes curl!

The vengeful wife who mailed 50 of her husband's most important work contacts from his email address, telling them: "I've got an extremely small penis that couldn't excite a woman's nostril, let alone anything else."

Jo moore, the government spin-doctor who hit the headlines for her 'good day to bury bad news' email on September 11, 2001.

The Pentagon officer who accidentally included a Devon schoolgirl on an email list that discussed top-secret matters.

The marketing man who wrote an email mocking his employer - and accidentally sent the message straight to his boss.

If you are into the internet in a professional sense then you REALLY need to read this book! Not only will you get a good giggle out of the mishaps and foul-ups that have happened to people from all walks of life, from retired elderly housewives to prominent politcal leaders, but you will also get a good idea of why you should pay attention to what you write and have a good think about who you send it to.
Those of us with email accounts have a responsibility to those in our contacts lists and address books to be thoughtful with what we send them. Emails aren't like physical letters, which can only be 'accidentally' read if the recipient makes a mistake. Emails can be send to one person, or a hundred, with the same easy mouse-click so a right dogs dinner can be only a simple muscle-spasm away if you take your eyes off the screen, or your brain out of gear.
There's humour to be had on every page, and just as many lessons to learn, which makes this book probably closer to an educational manual than a coffee table casual flick. it even delves into the mishaps caused in the dark old days before emails, though those are only lightly touched on early in the book. Letters, telegrams and faxes are funny, but far less likely to spread far and wide by accident.
On the whole, this is a great little book, but personally I would have thought a more appealing price tag would have been around the $15 mark.
