They break everything down and show it in different setting so the person becomes familiar and more at ease with their computer.
I think this is a great book for the beginner. They can ask almost anyone questions if they need help but this book I believe will let them understand without all the questions.
This is something I have only done a few times so as you can see we all might learn something in this book. I have worked with computers for years where you had to put a truly floppy disc in and you started at the command prompt and after 20 years in accounting I am familiar with a lot but not all.
If the terms mail app, google, skype and e-mailing used by friends and family members sound like they are speaking a foreign language, you are a good candidate for this very informative and enlighting guidebook to incorporating computers and the Internet into your daily life. The book wisely begins at the beginning with solid tips and advice regarding buying and setting up your first computer, then advances to other important knowledge in 13 addition “lessons” and numerous now try-it-yourself activities. The language in this guidebook, based on Windows 10 usage, is straightforward and the authors’ tone is patient and encouraging rather than condescending. Although this book is geared toward the 55-plus crowd, it’s not a bad investment for computer users of any age to offer helpful advice for going beyond your current computer skill level. Computers are here to stay, so even if you are retired from the day-to-day rat race, there are plenty of reasons to enrich your life and have some fun by using “Computers for Seniors” to master a wide range of new skills.
I received this book to give my honest opinion.
