There’s no part of online life that has a bigger impact on our productivity — and our happiness! — than email. But most email productivity guides focus on getting control over email, when what we really need is more control over our lives and our work.

That’s why I’m excited to announce today’s publication of the latest book in my Work Smarter with Social Media series for Harvard Business Review Press: Work Smarter, Rule Your Email. I wrote this short ebook for people who get too much email, which is a bit like saying I wrote this book for everybody. In it, I outline a few simple strategies and show you how to use your favourite mail client’s built-in tools to make your email really work for you, freeing you to focus your time and attention on the work that really matters.

I’d like to ask for your help spreading the word about this new ebook. Please buy a copy for yourself or as a gift for a colleague or a friend. Once you’ve had a chance to take a look at the book yourself, I’d be delighted if you would post a review on Amazon, iBooks, Kobo or Goodreads.
