Senior citizens are one of the fastest-growing segments of the online population and a strong book-buying population as well. But until now there has been no easy-to-use internet guide specifically aimed at an older audience, and designed to be helpful both to novices looking to e-mail their grandchildren, and to people with some computer familiarity (from work, for instance). This trade paperback guide, intended for the over-55 market, brings a friendly, no-nonsense approach to getting seniors up and running on the Internet.
Sidebars featuring the experiences of actual seniors in getting connected and using the Internet will help bring the text to life for readers. In addition to information on how to use the Internet, the book will also include an extensive review of appropriate sites and resources, a user-friendly look at where to go and what to do online. Hints and tips for both novice and more advanced users will help readers to simplify computer selection and setup, e-mail use, web navigation, and use of the Internet in a variety of ways of interest to seniors.
