"Tibballs pens a fun and offbeat guide for the over-50 crowd about the popular gadgets and lingo of the day. He offers humorous instructions on texting, ordering a frappuccino, buying on eBay, and more. Chapters on following DIY instructions and navigating phone call mazes are applicable to just about anyone. A great gift, public library purchase, or personal treat." —Library Journal on The Seniors' Survival Guide
"Grandpa will get Geoff Tibball's jokey The Seniors' Survival Guide simply for its explanation of the difference between Wi-Fi and hi-fi, Jpeg and clothes peg." —Telegraph on The Seniors' Survival Guide
