Rated 5 out of 5 by from iPad for Seniors for Dummies This is exactly what I needed. It is clear, concise, and answers all the questions I have. I felt overwhelmed with my new iPad Mini and the "language" that applies to it but I really wanted to learn how to use it. I am making progress thanks to this book which anticipates what one might need to know and which is organized in such a way that I can easily look up what I need to know or I can go page by page to learn. I had purchased another book to help me but as it turned out I didn't understand its language.. Anybody who wants to learn how to use an iPad really should purchase this book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Resource for the Technologically-Uninclined! I purchased this book as a bit of a joke for my husband who is 70+, but at the same time hopeful that it would provide both of us with helpful, practical information to get us started on the right foot with our new I-pad. And what do you know...it's the perfect resource for both of us and we can go back to the same helpful info as often as we want without the impatient comments that come from asking too many questions (or "ridiculous" questions") of our children, neighbours, and other rescuers! The chapters are well labelled, hints are short 'n' sweet, diagrams are helpful, and it doesn't pass judgement. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
