5.0 out of 5 stars so helpful!, 21 April 2012
This review is from: Laptops for Seniors In Easy Steps - Windows 7 Edition (Paperback)
We bought this for my husband's parents when they got their first laptop (we chose this one as we didnt want to get the "for dummies" one, as they might have taken offence!) and it has been an absolute godsend. Our phone line was a bit like the new BT commercial where the son is bombarded with phone calls from his mother about the internet - so we needed something nice and straightforward to teach them the basics and this book certainly has chapters on everything they could possibly need to know. Since reading it they are uploading and sharing their photos with no problem, they have sussed out their email completely and even using Firefox rather than Internet Explorer. Proof of how helpful this book is, is the fact that without a single bit of input from us, they are even managing to create their own spreadsheets in Excel. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone, not just a senior citizen, who is on their first laptop and needs some guidance.
