Fancy writing a book review for PC Advisor?

  Matt Egan 17:45 20 Feb 2013

Hello Team Forum. It's been a while since we did any reader book reviews, and I wondered two things:

  1. Is there any general interest in getting the process running again and me seeing what IT books I can blag?

  2. Would anyone like to review this specific book:

iPad for the Older and Wiser: Get Up and Running with Your iPad or iPad mini

The more eagle-eyed amongst you will note that it is co-authored by Rosemary Hattersley, long-time associate editor of PC Advisor and friend of the forum. Rosie has managed to source a few copies which the publisher is happy to give away to potential PCA reviewers.

Let me know on both counts. We'd operate on the same deal as before - you get the book in return for a review. But you can fire over the reviews to me via email and I will use my laser editor eyes to get them into shape and edit them.

Let me know!

I don't see how one can judge a book for a iPad, If he does not Have a iPad To Check it by. From a 77 year old

Your perception does you credit - I assume you'll not be wanting us to add your name to the list for this one.

Having just bought an iPad, I would have a go - ,but maybe , if available, Woolwell is an "expert"??

My friend, who is not 'up to speed' with his newly acquired IPad2 ... but has to use it, ['cos he's a member of the Local Housing Comittee and they've all got to use IT wether they liked it or not] ... might be interested in learning more about his Ipad2 ... we meet usually, once a fortnight, at his communal washing machine area for an hour or so.

I would [have to] be the 'go-between' in this arrangement, for optimum elucidation of the printed word, but my friend would be the sole enacter of the 10" DEVICE.

Woolwell, Isn't just the same as any other computer, an HDMI to HDMI cable that does it all automatically?

As for the book reviewing I regret that I'm neither old nor wise enough...

Great. Glad to see there is some interest. If you are interested, or are interested on behalf of a friend, just follow FE's instructions and drop me a line at [email protected]

Matt, will there be a free IPad [machine] included [with the book]? :o]

No, there won't.
