The book, "IS THIS THING ON?" by Abby Stokes is everything about the digital devices you own or want to purchase. Plus for me this book is pretty much everything I always wanted to learn about! Since, this is a great book for a beginner and those who might know a few things about digital devices, but want to learn a little more. The only reason I fell in love with the book rather than many others out there, is that it's got everything in it that I wanted to know about for my Tablet, PC and Phone

The author wrote the book for newbies - specifically older newbies - and I am older but not a newbie, but I enjoyed browsing and finding sections to read. I learned some things….and I was entertained at times. The explanations and directions are user friendly, and her writing is witty!
