What readers are saying about Photos, Video and Music with Windows Vista for SENIORS

I have put my WW2 Army photos on to a DVD with narration and music (thanks to your book Photos, Video and Music with Windows Vista for SENIORS), Steven Spielberg would be very proud of me. I recommend your books to everyone I speak to who want to know more about computers. They are the best tutorial literature around today.
- Henry Marks

This is a very easy to understand book and if you have ever tried to read a computer manual you know what I mean . Instructions are very percise and they show you in pictures every step to take. I have learned all sorts of fun things to do on my computer from making my own cd's to making scrapbook pages of my grandchildren. I have purchased 3 books in their series and have been pleased with each one. even though I am a 60 year old senior I would certainly recomend it for any age computer user.
