Computing for Seniors in easy steps, 5th edition

We have just borrowed a copy of this book from our local library. We are both low tech seniors (our 7 year old grandkids outshine us no probs!) but we have found your book very helpful without talking down to us.

iPhone in easy steps

The publishers of this book who are also the distributors got off to a good start by sending it out by first class post on the day it was ordered. There is nothing more frustrating than having a new toy and not being able to play with it properly and this was immediately overcome by their prompt service. Impressive. The guide itself is easy to follow and full of tips, notes about matters worth remembering and warnings of things you should be aware of. The chapters are denoted by little colour coded tabs on the side of the page and the inside front cover has quick tips for using the iphone. The book begins with a chapter on basic information about the iphone and gives the reader a tour of the buttons, the screen and the operation of the smartphone. This is followed by chapters covering the phones functions, messaging, obtaining,playing and managing music and video, photos and video, the standard apps., web browsing, emailing, the accessibility settings , working with apps. and troubleshooting. Every page has good pictures so that the reader can see what the phone screen should look like during a particular operation being described .The book is easy to read and easy to follow. It does what it says on the cover.

Android Tablets for seniors in easy steps

I was dithering about whether or not to join the tablet generation but, after reading this book, I realised there was nothing to get alarmed about and went ahead and bought my first tablet. The descriptions in the book are simple to understand, easy to follow, and by no means condescending. I would recommend this book to anyone who, like me, has doubts about their ability to cope.

Brilliant book. A lot of Tablets come with very poor users instruction manuals which are hard to read, poorly translated and about as much use as a chocolate teapot. This guide is excellent for us oldies who are not as computer savvy as today’s younger generation. I bought this and found it to be extremely helpful. It covers all topics and is easy to follow with step by step instruction and tips. A good buy and well worth the money.

Raspberry Pi in easy steps

This is just great! It spells all the stages of setting up, what not to do and what you MUST do in very clear steps. I think it should be incorporated in every school library.
