Rest of the Robots by Isaac Asimov

Book Description

The Rest of the Robots is the third timeless, amazing and amusing volume of Isaac Asimov's robot stories, offering golden insights into robot thought processes. Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics have since been programmed into real computers the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and used as the outline for a legal robotic charter in Korea. ROBOT TONY is the first robot designed to perform domestic duties by the US Robots and Mechanical Men Corporation. Is it Tony's fault that the lady of the house where he's field tested falls in love with him? - ROBOT AL was intended for shipment to a mining outfit on the moon. Instead, he's loose in the mountains of Virginia...building from scraps of junk his very own, very dangerous disintegrator. - ROBOT LENNY answers workaday questions in babytalk. So why is Dr Susan Calvin, the world's top robopsychologist, fascinated by this messed up specimen of an industrial robot?

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » ??Isaac Asimov might sniff (albeit approvingly) at the robots on display at ??orld's Fair, but who could have a better right than the father of the new breed of ??science fiction robots: the man who developed the science of Robotics with its famous ??ree laws. This anthology contains (with the exception of the I Robot series) the ??ulk of his stories regarding Robotics. In brief introductions he describes the conception (anti-Frankenstein) and development of his pseudo-science. Combining inex??rable logic with sympathetic humaneness, Asimov manages to endow his characters human or "R") with engaging personal characteristics while maintaining an intricate ??ot-line. Fascinating- a must for collectors. (Kirkus Reviews)
