-Richard Lederer, author of THE WRITE WAY Thanks to the computer, we're writing more than ever, but what about grammar,
spelling, and manners-do they still matter in today's wired world?
Yes, insist Patricia T. O'Conner and Stewart Kellerman, and it's time to

guide to writing in the age of e-mail.
"I love e-mail, but my love for it would run even deeper if everyone
followed the sound advice given here by Patricia T. O'Conner and Stewart
