    Good, but maybe not for seniors

    I like it so far, but wish it was a little easier to understand. I am older, and do not have as much patience as I once had.
    My mac book pro is way smarter than I am.
    I think I just need to take it one day at a time, try and work on it and with the book everyday for X amount of time.
