What readers are saying about Windows Vista for SENIORS

The clear step by step information leaves other beginner books far behind. This one doesn't try to be clever and does not muddy the learning process with silly cartoons, words that aren't familiar, or excessive wordiness. The illustrations are top rate and they're used throughout the book. I recently was in a big bookstore and looked at many instruction books for computers. It's surprising how complicated those books are. Visual Steps books are simple and informative.

The visual steps books are the best computer instruction books I have ever seen.Far better than the Dummies books.These books are appropriate for anyone new to the world of computers not just seniors.The Visual Step books are written assuming the reader has no knowledge of computers and go step by step with absoloute clarity.If anyone is stuggling to master their computer they cannot afford to be without the Visual Step books.A great investment at a very modest price.

Book is excellent for a beginner. It takes you by the hand and leads you thru the whole system. Also a good value for the price. Would recommend for a beginner, and even a fairly good user as a reference. Love the book.
