Everyone can benefit from interaction with a Macintosh. This book takes the unique approach of introducing computers to those people who did not grow up with them, paying particular interest to those of us who are over fifty years young.
Inside, you will learn the history of the modern computer, what it is used for and how to use it. No assumptions are made. Reading these pages would be equivalent to stepping into a time machine to learn about computers as they were just becoming popular. In the 1970’s and early 80’s, there were many places one could go to learn or read about computers. Back then, the technology was new, so companies needed to work hard to prove that there was a market for the type of computer which an individual would want to buy. This book virtually takes you back to that era as no other book can. Topics are discussed in much the same way the books of yesteryear described them but with an important twist; it is current technology which is addressed with that same care, precision and sense of adventure.
No matter what dreams and goals you have in life, a Macintosh can go a long way toward helping you attain them. If you recently retired or otherwise have extra time on your hands, consider adopting a Mac. Just as one thousand years ago, the ability to read and write opened countless doors. Today those capable of making full use of a computer gain a whole new level of freedom. Let this book be your guide on the road to computer literacy.
