NAKED TEXT: Email Writing Skills for Teenagers by Gisela Hausmann instructs teenagers on the importance of crafting professional emails and gives them pointers on how to make their emails stand out. Included in the book are tips for writing emails, the seven parts of an email, the best time to send an email, and how to close an email in a unique but professional way. The book also explains how missed details, typos, and misspellings can make your emails look sloppy and even mark you as a careless person. There are also pointers that even an adult can use, such as how to make your topic stand out and how to write a creative greeting.
The biggest accomplishment of NAKED TEXT: Email Writing Skills for Teenagers is teaching teenagers and young adults how to make the transition between fun texts and professional looking emails. In a time when teenagers might be seeking colleges, applying for jobs or internships, and dealing with adult responsibilities, the lessons and tools mentioned in the book will be invaluable. The book is written in a straightforward way with little fluff, so it should hold a teen’s attention without sounding preachy. Also, author Gisela Hausmann stresses the importance of writing thank you emails and teaches teenagers that an email should not be about me, me, me, but about what you can do for someone else. This is great advice and should truly make a difference for teenagers entering the professional world. I would recommend the book for teenagers, young adults, college students, and even adults. It would also be a great source to keep in school libraries.
