Synopsis

The Seniors' Survival Guide New Tricks for Old Dogs by Geoff Tibballs

Are you still struggling to set the clock on your video recorder? Are you worried that the times are moving without you and you're simply being dragged kicking and screaming into the twenty-first century? Does the thought of using an iPod or Blackberry make your palms sweaty? Or does the idea of going into Starbucks for a coffee strike fear in your heart? The Seniors' Survival Guide is here to help clear the fog and make sense of all the confusing mumbo-jumbo surrounding modern life. You don't need to be old to have those 'senior moments' either: anyone who has ever watched a four-year-old text with the speed and dexterity of a skilled touch-typist will know the feeling. The ultimate manual for modern living, The Seniors' Survival Guide includes everything from buying and selling on eBay and using that internet thingy, to understanding teen-speak, tackling global warming and negotiating telephone helplines. With this book the mechanical beeping, buzzing and whirring that surrounds and afflicts your everyday life will soon begin to fade.

Reviews

Grandpa will get Geoff Tibball's jokey The Senior Survival Guide simply for its explanation of the difference between Wi-Fi and hi-fi, Jpeg and clothes peg. -- Telegraph
