A full-color guide to computer basics—written for seniors, by seniors
Computing for Seniors QuickSteps provides easy-to-follow, full-color details on how to accomplish common tasks on the computer. Written in a straightforward manner without jargon, this book zeros in on only the most important computer-related topics, avoiding overwhelming you with coverage of every feature of a computer.
Concise descriptions and full-color visuals clearly lead you through the steps necessary to perform a task. In addition to being technology experts and experienced computer book writers, the authors themselves are seniors and have spent many hours getting other seniors comfortable with computers. To create this book, they’ve called on advisers in the areas of photography, social networking, online financial management, and genealogy to address areas of special interest to seniors. Senior citizens from the U.S. and UK serve as reviewers and testers of the information in the book.
