This British author follows up on his first book, Teach Yourself Computing for the Over 50ties, with this more comprehensive coverage of two areas that he had only surveyed in the first volume: The Internet and Email. Here, he instructs all levels from beginner on up, for example, on how to sell items on Ebay. There is some duplication early on of some chapters from the first book because he probably felt that he had to do this or lose his readers who hadn't read the initial volume. But don't miss it because he builds the reader's computer skills as the book progresses.
