I give computing support to a wide range of the 'older and wiser' and they are unanimous that this range of guides is easily readable and actually helpful.

Very useful and easy to understand. The Quiz questions at the end of each chapter ensure that you have understood each part.
The index is concise, enabling quick help for a precise problem. Have now bought other books in the range.
Takes the fear out of browzing!

As a complete computer novice,I borrowed this book several times from the library before buying it myself.It starts with the very basics-explaining the keyboard through to more advanced stages.Each chapter is created with a light sense of humour so your brain is not overloaded.Would recommend this book to any beginner.

Excellent basic starter book, credit to U3A organisation. I have used W7 for some time without any assistance after years of W XP. Wanted a simple reference to sort out concept of things like Library etc which differ. HAPPY TO EXPLORE OS myself just needed basic starter, this ideal.

I can't rate this title highly enough. As an aged newcomer to computing who didn't know his enter key from his shift key,or the command bar from the menu bar,this book is so much unlike previous titles consulted which seem to have been been written for those with prior knowledge of the subject. Mr.Arnold has written without the use of technical terms from the introduction explaining the function of the keys , to details of how they should be used to accomplish various tasks such as email,use of the internet,word processing,photography,and much more. Always with just the right sense of humor.

Useful book for silver surfers with the basics well set out and simply explained, but now outdated by later versions of windows 7.

An excellent book aimed at older people who want to be better at computing matters. Am already finding it very useful - good for dipping into.
