Product Overview

What do Canadian Evangelicals, stupid pelicans, and the Associated Press have in common? All are all mercilessly lampooned for the sake of comedy in "Where There's a Will, There's Away. Messages: A 21st Century Guide to the Art of Absence," a book that explores the limits of the Away Message as a vehicle for shameless amusement.

Each page features a different Message, gathered into curious subcategories such as, "Fun with Advertising," "It's A Thinker," and "Religious Shmreligious." Prefaced by an analysis of the creative process and the author's personal writing philosophy, this collection irreverently undermines the purpose of Away Messages while surveying the extent of the instant messaging phenomenon.

Perfect for the college student and business executive alike, "Where There's A Will, There's Away. Messages" is THE book with a finger on the pulse of digital pop-culture.
