3.0 out of 5 stars For the American market 18 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
It was fairly useful when I first used the iPad, but I found it difficult to follow, particularly as one has to jump from section to section. At one point I had to return the iPad to factory settings as I'd got into such a muddle - and I'm reasonably computer literate.

"iPad For Seniors For Dummies" written by Nancy C. Muir is quite similar to "iPad For Dummies" by Bob LeVitus, another recently issued book in the ...For Dummies series.
Both books for their theme have iPad device, allowing the reader to learn in the shortest time how to use iPad Air, iPad with Retina Display, iPad 2 and earlier iPad models.

"iPad For Seniors For Dummies" puts special emphasis on the elderly, therefore in certain topics entering deeply into the detail, that is reasonable considering the audience it addresses, that are not used to gadgets and all technological revolution that has occurred in recent years.
Although I'm not part of the audience for whom this book is written, I especially like its beginning where the author in an intuitive and user-friendly way is explaining how to choose the model of the iPad and its accessories, together with all of their characteristics on which attention should be paid depending on the user's interests.

After such interesting start, the authors in second big chapter included information about most important options setting, about Internet browsing and e-mail communication, how to get social with your cool gadget, how to purchase things and what are the most useful applications that can be found in App Store.
In following chapter, audio / video media is discussed, how to use iPad as e-book reader, how to play music and browse photos, watch videos and play games.
The book last chapter is probably the most interesting because it provides information about managing your life using Apple device, helping things make on time, finding and managing friends, even talking to your device when there is no other friend around...

5.0 out of 5 stars A very good book 13 Jan 2014
By redbull
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Having had an iPad for Christmas and only been used to operating lap tops we needed a simple instruction manual and so far this version 6 has been invaluable which is easy to understand, so would highly reccommend to others like ourselves who are seniours who have learnt this technology in later life.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wow ...understandable technology!!!! 14 May 2013
I like the book because it's easy to refer to, set out simply and has clear pictures to explain the text. It does not tell me how to delete information, as much as I would like. It would help to have a glossary, as it's for beginners.
I would and have already recommended it to others.
