I have just started going through the Windows 7 for Seniors for Dummies book, slowly. The "seniors" means big print which I appreciate. I have had a computer for years and was familiar with the XP and find that this version is an improvement on that. It may take me some time to review all the information in the book, however I am finding it very useful.

I am 69. I am a dummie.This is my first computer. This book led me through step by step that I could understend.What I like most about it is that I can connect to Mr Mark Justice Hinton directly without going on a wild goose chase on the internet like the bad time I had and have with KODAK, STAPLES, DELL, ADOBE etc

I find this book just right for me; I am embarrassed to ask
my little grandchildren for help. This answers all my 'dumb'
questions with clarity and dispatch!

Windows 7 for seniors has been a lot of help in acquainting me with this new operating system. At first I was frustrated and was tempted to go back to XP, but now I am beginning to like it. I am glad there is an edition for senior dummies as well as for regular dummies!

Windows 7 for seniors for dummies is a bit to light for me. I wanted to know about Windows 7 and not how to use a mouse or log on to sites. Its a little to basic for anyone who has been through windows XP and/or Vista and just wants the main differences between them and Window 7. Fine for begining computer users with this as their first OS.

I am so glad I ordered this book. This author knows what a senior adult needs to know about Windows 7, wouldn't be without it;

The book was somewhat informative. It focused on tips for Internet Explorer and should have included Firefox, also.
I have a windows 7 premium computer. I wanted to change something on the uninstaller program. The author's book showed that you can change and repair when uninstalling, I didn't get that when I brought up the install. The author mentions that some may not have that, but did not give a solution to that problem.

There are only 392 pages in the book, not 408 pages. In general the book only mentions the names of some of the programs such as Picasa for photos and the Microsoft photo programs but doesn't mention which program was better or anything else. I am somewhat disappointed in this book.
