Are you worried that the times are moving on without you and you're simply being dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century? Does the thought of using an iPod or Blackberry make your palms sweaty? Does the idea of going into Starbucks for a coffee strike fear into 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. It 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.
