Description

I, Robot,
The Caves of Steel,
The Naked Sun,
The Robots of Dawn,
Robots and Empire.

I, Robot

The three laws of Robotics:
1) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2) A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3) A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

With these three, simple directives, Isaac Asimov changed our perception of robots forever when he formulated the laws governing their behavior. In I, Robot, Asimov chronicles the development of the robot through a series of interlinked stories: from its primitive origins in the present to its ultimate perfection in the not-so-distant future--a future in which humanity itself may be rendered obsolete.

Here are stories of robots gone mad, of mind-read robots, and robots with a sense of humor. Of robot politicians, and robots who secretly run the world--all told with the dramatic blend of science fact and science fiction that has become Asimov's trademark

    The amount of typos in this publication is insane. Poor quality transcription for $20
  • So many transcription errors.

    All of these novels suffer from many errors in conversion from print to e-book. Many are spelling errors; others are mistaken words which are out of context. I’m amazed the publisher is willing to charge for such a poor job.
  • Terrific book
