5.0 out of 5 stars Clueless husband likes it 26 Jan 2014
By LindyLou - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My husband knows nothing about computers, so he received this as a gift. So far he's found it easy to follow and his "go-to" book when he has questions about something going on with his laptop. It's well-written and you don't need a computer science degree to understand it.

I got this book for my husband who is 75 and got his first laptop, he is reading it and told me he now understands many things about the computers and started using his laptop. He is not very good with the new electronics so this is an accomplishment for him.

laptop. Also appreciated the larger type........
