In my not so humble opinion (I teach computers) the Rosenzweig book is a gem. You don't have to have a familiarity with computers to understand the book. He carefully explains the basics as well as suggestions for enhancing the use of the iPad with additional apps. Well worth buying it even if you have had an iPad for a while as you will learn all the settings that useful to enhance the iPad for Senios such as turning on Bold Type that makes even the names under the icons easier to read for our "silver citizen" eyes.
Bought this for my 79 year old mother. This is her first iPad. She loves the book and said to give it 5 stars. It explains everything to where she could understand it and do what she wanted to do. She said it made the tasks she wanted to do very easy. She also said this author did a fantastic job of explaining the Ipad and instructions were accurate and easy. She also said she read the instructions and then had her ipad right there with the book and followed the book while performing the task on the IPad. Everything she tried was easy if you followed the book. She would definitely recommend this book for people who are trying to learn how to operate their iPad. This was a great investment and she said it is much better than those books for "Dummies". I am so glad I bought this book for her. She is having a ball with her iPad!
I did not find anything that turned me off or disappointed me. I'm a senior citizen and this is my first iPad. So far I've enjoyed it very much and learned many things about the iPad Air that I would not have figured out on my own. Yes I would recommend this book, especially if your trying to figure out your iPadand it happens to be your first one.PS. I just realized why us men never ask for directions!
My wife and I are both in our mid 70's. I am very computer literate but she is absolutely not. I can point my wife to the right place in this book, she reads it and accepts what the book says (she won't listen to me) and learns. Great buy for seniors.
Computers are new to me.I needed a simple book that would show me in layman words what to do without breaking my head to figure it out.I was surprised with how simple the book is.I didn't need to be tutored by anyone.I recommend this book to any age, not just seniors
The book is written in a clear and easy to understand language and answered all of my questions as well as showing me all sorts of things I was not aware of. Many thanks.
Excellent book for senior. Easy to follow without a bunch of geek talk. Would recommend to anyone, young or old.
This book was okay in helping me get started, I originally bought the book for a little more in depth help, of which I can not find, i.e. how to raise or lower security for incoming information. A clearer plain english explanation needed.Maybe I was looking for more than this book could supply.Disappointed? a little. Would I recommend this book? Yes! It did help me get started!
