Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Grandpa will get Geoff Tibball's jokey The Senior Survival Guide simply for its explanation of the difference between Wi-Fi and hi-fi, Jpeg and clothes peg."  —Telegraph

Library Journal
Tibballs (The Mammoth Book of Dirty, Sick, X-Rated and Politically Incorrect Jokes) 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.
