Computers for Retirees

“Computers for Retirees” is written for people who may be entering the computer age with a bit of trepidation. It’s written in plain English, so a generation who didn’t grow up with computers can catch up to younger generations who consider technology second nature.


This online book is written by Dirk Lammers, a journalist of more than 15 years who has written for The Associated Press, The Tampa Tribune and a variety of other publications.
