The book for review is “Before You Hit Send: Preventing Headache and Heartache” by Emerson Eggerichs, PhD. This falls in the genre of self-help and general.
How many times have we texted, tweeted, posted on Facebook or send an email and immediately regretted what we had written? We wish we could go back in time but now have to deal with any fall out.
This book dives into this. Mr. Eggerichs explains there are four parts we need to think about before hitting send. These are: Is it true?, Is it kind?, Is it necessary? And Is it clear?. The book is divided into four parts each section discussing the above mentioned. If we are honest with ourselves and ponder these over we can revamp how we hit send. Examples are given from actual emails or events that the author came across that helps us learn the material in a different way.
Each chapter starts off with scriptures meditation that pertains to the topic at hand. And while there is a spiritual undertone to this book it is not over the top that it might make you put down the book.
I did like this book for who hasn’t sent something they wish they could take back? I loved how the book was divided into the sections for us to work on in our own lives. It was to the point, didn’t bog me down and gave me a lot to think about on what I should do before I hit send. This author wrote it in such a way it wasn’t condescending or scolding.
Usually I give my books away that I receive for reviewing purposes but this is one I will keep for myself to reread.
I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
