Reviews - What do customers think about Windows XP for Seniors : For Senior Citizens Who Want to Start Using Computers (Computer Books for Seniors series)?
Just the book for my class May 4, 2008
I have been asked to teach a class for the non-computer folks at my retirement community. I purchased this book for each member of the class, and plan to use each chapter for a specific class session. It has very straightforward explanations of the basic computer operations and Windows XP, fully illustrated. I think it will be perfect to help me guide some seniors to computer literacy.
My sister and I Jul 11, 2007
My sister hasn't been to my place for over 10 yrs. She visited me this month and I had this book on my desk.When she flipped through it,instantly she wanted it & copied down the address to purchase it.It is so easy to understand and if you make a mistake ,it tells you what to do to get back on track again. I think it is a wonderful book for beginners.

Windows for Grannies -- wish I'd thought of that.... Apr 10, 2007
Excellent book, illustrations don't overpower the reader. I don't agree 100% with some of the author's more judgmental statements in the book, but aside from those few instances, he's done a good job. We're using this as a companion book to our basic Windows XP classes for seniors. I actually contacted the author about his entire series of books and my using them in my classes, but he apparently wasn't interested and never even gave me the courtesy of a return email, which is why I didn't give this book a 5.
