I learnt so much from this friendly book,
This review is from: Computing for the Older and Wiser: Get Up and Running on Your Home PC (Older & Wiser) (Paperback)
I saw this book at a friend of mine's house and he kindly lent it to me. Having read the first few chapters I realised that, in spite of having some computing knowledge, it was just the book I was looking for so I bought myself a copy and three more for other friends for Christmas.
The book is so easy to use with its spiral binding allowing it to lie open beside the keyboard. The lessons start with the very basic use of the keyboard and mouse before exploring the finer points of emailing, the Internet, word processing and digital photography. The revision quizzes at the end of each chapter help to cement one's learning and the writing avoids all technical language and acronyms. There is even advice on buying the best type of computer with the help of a knowledgeable friend or 'guardian angel'.
I cannot recommend this book too highly.
