Publisher's Description

Do you feel that you have been left behind in the technological revolution? Assuming no prior knowledge of using a computer, this book is written in a practical, light-hearted and non-technical style to take the terror out of the technology.


Bob Reeves approaches the subject in a highly accessible way, focusing on the computer applications of most interest to middle and third agers, including correspondence, photography, shopping online, personal budgets and researching your family history. It begins with the very basics and ends with an invaluable 'jargonbuster' glossary.


The book is made up of a series of self-contained chapters, with the emphasis on what the computer is being used for, rather than the software needed. For example: rather than a chapter on 'word-processing', there is a chapter on 'letter writing'; rather than 'desktop publishing' there is 'making a newsletter' and 'making cards for all occasions'; rather than one on 'digital photography' there is ' getting photographs on to the computer' etc. There will be clear instructions supported with screenshots, tips and hints throughout.


This approach sets it apart from other books on basic computer skills as it covers what you really want to do with your computer, breaking down any technical barriers and making the book totally relevant to the novice computer user.
