Don't be left behind in the technological revolution

In The Internet and Email for the Over 50s covers emailing, making calls over the Internet, shopping online, banking, setting up a blog and searching online. Starting from first basics, it begins with how to choose the right computer, software and peripherals. Filled with clear instructions and supported with screenshots, tips, hints and a full "jargon-busting" glossary, it assumes you have no prior knowledge of using the internet and email, guiding you with practical good humor to success.

  • One, five and ten-minute introductions to key principles to get you started.
  • Lots of instant help with common problems and quick tips for success, based on the author’s many years of experience.
  • Tests in the book and online to keep track of your progress.
  • Extra online articles at www.teachyourself.com to give you a richer understanding of the Internet and email.
  • Written with humor in plain language to take the fear out of using email and the internet.
  • Including a comprehensive jargonbuster glossary, it cuts through the "techno babble."
