What Reviewers Are Saying
Written in a fluent, down-to-earth style, this book covers an eclectic range of topics, from bowls and birdwatching to astronomy and radio-hamming. It's oddly silent on surfing the world-wide web, which more and more older people are making good use of, but there's plenty of sensible advice about real-life face-to-face networking with human beings.
