Actually this is a group of weak short stories whose only redeeming wuality is that they are somewhat novel.

very good, quite different from the film

This is NOT the movie, in any way! This collection of "robot stories" explores ways in which humans and self-thinking robots might interact, in the most unexpected ways. How can you tell if a robot is lying? Can a robot feel? What does it mean for a robot to die? Fascinating fodder for Asimov's agile mind.

A wonderful collection of stories that looks at Asimov's ideas of the development and implementation of advanced robotics in the future. The movie by the same name only shares the name in common, this book is so much better than that was.

Here is a wonderful and timeless collection of nine short stories that all center around a central theme; The Three Laws Of Robotics.  The three laws are: 1) A robot may not injure a human …

Few books have defined a genre of pop culture as well as this short classic by Isaac Asimov. This book is a collection of several stories, all of which are set in the near future when written by I. Asimov in 1950. By reading the stories from front cover to back cover, we see the evolution of human - robot relationships both at a personal level, and on a societal level at large. In all the stories, the relationship is defined by three laws. But the constraints of these laws can cause robot behavior …
