As someone now well into my geezerhood, I can certainly sympathize with the masses of mature computer users who struggle every day to get their electronic nemesis to behave. Few books cut through the haze of jargon as well as Aaron Rosenzweig has in this book.
While written for the less-than-techno-savvy, the book strives to keep up to date with the most popular uses for computers by adults - word processing, EMail and web surfing. He covers the things that give older Macintosh users the most trouble - saving files, computer viruses, and system settings and does it without condescending or needless humor. Just straight information presented in a clear, accessible manner that any computer user would welcome when they're having trouble understanding the way their computer works. Its a great reference book that I strongly recommend.
