It is a fascinating book and very well written. It doesn't, however match my Macbook pro in diagrams. So it is somewhat confusing. I admit to being tech challenged, but a little more detail to each type of Mac would have been helpful.

I was disappointed in Macs for Seniors for Dummies because it wasn't basic enough. There was too much knowledge assumed. I need screenshots. I wasn't able to maneuver the simplest thing, like how to move a file from one part of the Mac to another! I need information about exactly which windows to open and where I might find that window.

I have three books on the Mac but this one is the easiest for me to understand. It uses less technical words.

The writer of this helpful book must have elderly family of his own. He has constructed this book with a kind understanding of how the elderly can be challenged with todays technical developments. As the Australians are fond of saying "Good On You sport".

It is easy to understand for someone who knows very little about computers. I bought this book for my husband and he seems to be enjoying it and learning along the way

the book does very well in telling you about IMAC and helps on finding other ways of finding Stuff that you need to know.

Helpful to me. Lots of good tips. However, it didn't include the the latest information, I needed, for the very latest iMac. The Dummies books are always helpful and good reading.
