The Email Academy

Welcome to The Email Academy, a five-part video course that walks you through the most important ideas from my new book, A World Without Email.  The goal of this course is to help you take immediate action toward improving the quality of your professional life.

The five lessons are described below. Each is hosted as an unlisted video on YouTube, so you should be able to easily watch or listen to them on any device. Feel free to share these video links with colleagues, friends or family that you’re trying to convert toward a more enlightened approach to work communication.

And above all else, thank your for pre-ordering my book. It means a lot…
