My grandmother got an iPad for her 80th birthday and she loves it. She now uses the ipad to Skype us and her grand kids, send emails and read the news. When we first got her the ipad, she was not interested and did not believe she could ever learn `future technology' like this. So we got her some `old technology' in the form she knew: a book!

We browsed on Amazon for ipad books for seniors and found this book: Ipad for Seniors to be the one with the most consistently good reviews. I think the publisher is on to something and has has the right idea: clear pictures and chapters that address basic and complete utilization of the ipad. Numerous iPad apps (some specifically designed for seniors using the iPad) also get a lot of attention and they way the information is presented makes it very clear, even for complete iPad dummies like me.

This is the easiest to follow manuel I have ever used! Set up like a class room text book with help everywhere! Because of the clarity I just ordered the "More Windows 7 for Seniors" by the Visual Steps company.

I bought this book for my 92-yr.old sister who just got an ipad and who is losing her vision. She is finding it very helpful, even though she has to use a magnifying glass in some places (her vision is extremely poor). She tells me that she has learned a number of routines with help from the book. I can't be specific, since I haven't used it myself, but the fact that her husband has found the book useful substantiates her opinion.

I have used a computer for years, but without a manual included in the box of the ipad when I bought it, I was lost. This book gave very simple instructions and I could pass over the parts that I did not need and still get where I needed to be. This is a business tool for me and I did not want to be left behind. By using ipad for Seniors I could get up to speed quickly and start using the iPad in a very useful way. I feel this book would help any age group and I plan on having my 16 year old granddaughter go thru it. Of course she thinks she knows everything anyway, but even she will pick up a trick or two.

Although I am not yet a "senior", at least I hope not. I am 53 and have found lots of good books written for "seniors" that are alot more direct, easy to understand and very informative. We did not learn on computers in school so it is still all new to me, books like this are perfect for baby boomers, unless I get help from my 15 year old grand-daughter! Very well written, just what I needed to get my brand new 5 month old iPad mini. It got me started and I have not stopped yet. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! Highly reccomended reading for just about ANYBODY with a new iPad, or even a used one for that matter.

I purchased this book for my 92 year old husband so that he could learn how to use his new iPad. He was frustrated because it came with no instructions. He says that it is a VERY helpful book with clear pictures and instructions. Hopefully I can also learn how to use his iPad.

My Granny needed this book so she could learn to use the ipad she got for Christmas and she said it has taught her a lot that she did not know and the words are nice and large so she can read them also.
