■How well does each subject line below meet the guidelines in this chapter?■How well does each message below meet the criteria in the checklist for informative and positive messages? 
Message 1 
I highly recommend Italy. Spend a full week in Florence, if you can. Be sure to visit the Brancacci  Chapel—it’s  been  restored  and  the  frescoes  are  breathtaking.  And  I  can  give you the names of some great restaurants. You may never want to come back! 
Message 2: 
As  you  know,  we  are  in  a  very  competitive  position  right  now.  Your  job  is  important  and  there  is  no  one  who  can  easily  replace  you.  However,  because  you  are  a  val-ued employee, I will permit you to take the leave you request, as long as you train a replacement before you leave
