    This is a small but solid book that accomplishes what it sets out to do: teach baby boomers (and beyond!) how to stay safe on the internet. It covers all bases and does so in a straightforward fashion that should be easy for seniors to understand. Although the subject matter can be stressful (especially for people who fear the internet), this book's simple explanations and detailed explanations are actually rather soothing. It also provides information on scams done via the phone, which I found This is a small but solid book that accomplishes what it sets out to do: teach baby boomers (and beyond!) how to stay safe on the internet. It covers all bases and does so in a straightforward fashion that should be easy for seniors to understand. Although the subject matter can be stressful (especially for people who fear the internet), this book's simple explanations and detailed explanations are actually rather soothing. It also provides information on scams done via the phone, which I found helpful; although I was familiar with nearly all of the computer scams discussed in the book, I am not as familiar with phone ones. Overall, this book is a good overview for someone who wants to learn to keep their money safe or who just wants to brush up on how to do so. Disclaimer: I won this book as part of a Goodreads giveaway contest.

    I'm not a techie, just a long-time end user. I was already aware of most of the information in this book. However, for someone who is a newcomer (or tends to be gullible), it probably would be useful.
