I just finished this book and although I have owned my ipad 2 for a year and am not quite a senior, the information and tips were very helpful. There were quite a few things that were new to me.I just want to say that this book was well written and the information was very easy to understand. Thank you!

iPad for Seniors: Get Started Quickly with the User Friendly iPad uses larger print, color screen shots throughout, and shorter step-by-step teaching to help seniors more easily absorb the basics of navigating screens, connecting to WiFi, and surfing the Internet using the iPad. From downloading apps to handling photos, videos, and more, the color-coded and easy directions assume NO prior computer or iPad knowledge and are so easy that many a non-senior new to the iPad environment will want to use this manual as the best possible user-friendly choice for learning basic iPad functions. Very highly recommended!

Got this iPad book as a companion to my iPad 2 - it is really useful.
Big font size, color pictures on every page and a clear presentation on how to use the iPad 2. Great tips I have learnt is how to link all of my e-mail accounts in one Mail application accessible with one touch, how to find great Apps and working with iTunes to synchronize my books and PDF's with the iPad 2. An awesome iPad guide, which doubles as an iPad manual - if you are looking for a great iPad book to learn how to use the iPad, this is it; you learn something new about the iPad, every time you open this iPad book!

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.
