Summary
Spanning Asimov's fifty-year career, this collection of eighteen stories and essays offers a visionary study of humanity's future relationship with robots, including both classic and original pieces, all based on Asimov's three laws of robotics. Reissue.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: From Isaac Asimov, the Hugo Award-winning Grand Master of Science Fiction whose name is synonymous with the science of robotics, comes five decades of robot visions: thirty-four landmark stories and essays—including three rare tales—gathered together in one volume.

Meet all of Asimov’s most famous creations including: Robbie, the very first robot that his imagination brought to life; Susan Calvin, the original robot psychologist; Stephen Byerley, the humanoid robot; and the famous human/robot detective team of Lije Bailey and R. Daneel Olivaw, who have appeared in such bestselling novels as The Robots of Dawn and Robots and Empire.

Let the master himself guide you through the key moments in the fictional history of robot-human relations—from the most primitive computers and mobile machines to the first robot to become a man.

“It’s good to have Isaac’s classic robot stories, and his commentary on them, in one handsome volume.”—Arthur C. Clarke
