Horse Head Dig and Flip: "I Robot" by Isaac Asimov (1950)

"I, Robot"... by Isaac Asimov (1950)
192 pages

"I, Robot" is a wickedly smart and entertaining collection of stories that revolve around Asimov's famously clever, "Three Laws of Robotics." (Google it.)
And though it is not a complete novel...(I always assumed it was)...the shorter stories are so tightly woven around that robot makes very little difference.

The scope of Asimov's robotic worlds are infinite and I found myself smiling and nodding my head with respect while turning pages.  For a story written nearly 70 years ago...the prophetic importance will still give you chills.

I may be late to the party, but I'll certainly help the host clean up.  This is a most enjoyable read.
Pick up Isaac Asimov's, "I Robot" and be surprised!

Good stuff.
