Suggested Book to help elderly parent grasp 'the internet' - HELP PLEASE

Hi Peeps

Looking for some guidance on which Self Help Book to buy! We've bought my father in law a Laptop for Christmas. He is completely new to PCs. We've bought an Acer One Netbook for him (running on Linux operating system).

The Internet for Dummies book does not receive good reviews and so I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a good book to help him understand some of the concepts of the internet. Has to be REALLY REALLY easy to understand, no jargon and easy to read. Any help really would be appreciated!

Best wishes - look forward hearing from you!

Sally

I havent read one before but these come recommended in the reviews:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Grandmas-Guide-Internet-Linda-Ingham/dp/1902467078/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

Also if he has any questions no matter how basic send him over to [url]www.Techmonkeys.co.uk[/url] and we will gladly help.

I would recommend any off the "Dummies" series of books. Everything explained in simple English not jargon and all library's should have copies.

Dummies books are a great ,simple help

THANKS for the reply - he is OAP yes, but my mother in law, his wife, suffers from dementia and so getting so classes will prove impossble. I'll have a look at what they've got and some of the suggested books.

Thanks so much for the reply
