MacOS Sierra

“I just bought this book and my son replaced my old, outdated windows PC with this new Apple desktop Mac computer. With the help of your book, using TextEdit, Email and learning to work with the Mac in general has been a whole lot easier. Very good book. I will keep it on my desk for reference and help on things I run into. Well worth the price I paid for the book.”
- Don Warner

“I am teaching the Mac classes. I really enjoy the book, I recommend them to my seniors and the feedback has been very positive. They love the instructions with pictures. The seniors are very visual and it helps them to understand and learn. Thank you for the great job you all do.”
- Denise Donovan

Microsoft Office

“I am half way through the book and really finding it great. Awesome, thank you. I tried lots of other titles on Excel but they were very confusing. I went out and bought your Word book also and learnt heaps even though I have used a computer for twenty odd years. Many thanks.”
- Mary from New Zealand 2016

Windows 8 books

“I recommend your books to all of my "senior" friends. When we purchased our first computer 5 years ago, I relied completely on all of your books for Windows Vista. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!”
- Pat Monroe

[ top of page ]Windows 7 books

“Windows 7 for Seniors is a top recommendation for any senior who wants to begin using computers from scratch, and teaches the basics of email, web surfing, and customizing computer settings. Plenty of black and white screen shots accompany every step while larger-sized text makes it easy on senior eyesight. The pages of tips offer quick resolution to common problems - such as being unable to print - and include keys to saving documents and more, while exercises at each chapter's end reinforce knowledge.”
- Midwest Book Review/ California Bookwatch May 2012

“Thank you! I am a senior computer instructor. I have been teaching seniors for over 10 years. I needed to catch up with the new operating system, Windows 7. I went to the library and found 3 books: Microsoft windows 7 simplified, Windows 7 for seniors, and your Windows 7 for seniors.
You can't compare the other two instruction books to yours; they were too complicated for seniors. However, your manual was superior, the other two failed the test. They were much to difficult for seniors. Need to look at your other manuals.”
- Sharon, Boston, MA

“As a computer instructor for Wake Technical Community College I try to provide the best education and keep my classes current and well informed. While Visual Steps publications are the best publications for seniors, they provide informative guidance to everyone. ”
- Jerry Glenn. Computer Instructor, Wake Technical Community College and Northern Wake Senior Center

“I am a senior who has been volunteer teaching other seniors how to use computers since 2002 when I retired from classroom teaching.
I am constantly reading computer books so that I can impart the latest knowledge to the seniors I teach.
I am delighted to read and use ideas from your Senior series of books. I am constantly asking our local library to purchase your books and I always encourage seniors whom I assist to go to the library and to sign out your books. Please tell the authors that they are doing an amazing job. I always look for your books in the neighboring libraries within our local area. When we go to Florida for four months, one of the first places I check out is the Library in our area to see if your books are there.
Keep up the great work for Seniors. I am a true believer in lifelong learning and I continually encourage seniors to do so, also.”
- Sheila McDermott

“I belong to an active computer club in the Hill Country of Texas. During several of our recent meetings the new OS (Operating System) Windows 7 has been discussed. At a current meeting several publications were presented to the group, one of them was "Windows 7 for SENIORS". The book is published by "Visual Steps" and provides a support website. I have used publications from this publisher in the past and found them to be very informative and cover the topics and shortcuts very well. It is the fastest way to become familiar with a new OS or other computer topic and because it is written for Seniors it has extra details provided. It is a fast and effective way to be updated and stay in tune with the times. These comments provided to you by an 81 year old senior that is trying to stay in the flow of things.”
- Ed W. Campbell, Independence, KS USA
