This is pretty good for adults under the age of 55, which I wouldn't characterize as "Seniors." As a guide for Seniors (i.e., over 60, and especially the over 70 age group), this fails on several levels. While the text font and size are OK, they are not ideal for readability. Text captions are bold, but smaller. The bolding does not help readability for declining vision. While there are many images, the images are often too small and the lines pointing to items in the picture are frequently low contrast (e.g., dark red on black or dark grey).

There are numbered step by step instructions beyond the first chapter, but again, image size and contrast is frequently a problem. The instructions themselves use simple language (good) organized into fairly discrete steps (also good).

Finally, there is a LOT of information. This can be good, or overwhelming, depending on the person.

On a scale of 1(lowest) to 10(best), I'd rate it as an 8 for adults and a 3 for older Seniors.
