In this age of social media, everybody’s gone email and text-message crazy. In turn, this mania over being constantly “connected” and constantly communicating has created the potential for myriad workplace problems. In Reply All, Richie Frieman has created a useful manual for keeping your job amid the the ever-changing 21-st century landscape. In one of the most compelling sections of the book, Frieman outlines what you should do if you mean to send that dirty joke to your buddy down the hall, but instead hit “reply  all” by mistake – sending it to the entire office in one slim millisecond. According to Frieman, what can certainly be a fire-able catastrophe can be remedied, providing you know what to do (and what not to do) in the moments following your miscue. Basically, Reply All serves as a primer on the ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ of the workplace, confronting tough subjects like office romances and the umbrella of social media with insight and depth. It’s this simple: Since the majority of us work in offices and are glued to our computers 24-7, it remains our responsibility to know how to survive the terrain where we’re wiling away our hours. In sum, Reply All writes the road-map to survival. Read by the author. 5.5 hours on 5 CDS.
