From the Back Cover:

THE COMPLETE ROBOT is the definitive anthology of Asimov’s stunning visions of a robotic future…

In these stories, Issac Asimov creates the Three Laws of Robotics and ushers in the Robot Age: when Earth is ruled by master-machines and when robots are more human than mankind.

As well as TN-3 (Tony), AL-76 and other robots, the stories feature the staff of US Robots and Mechanical Men Inc., and in particular the chief robot-psychologist, the steely Dr Susan Calvin who is in many ways more robot-like than her subjects.

THE COMPLETE ROBOT is the ultimate collection of timeless, amazing and amusing robot stories from the greatest science fiction writer of all time, offering golden insights into robot thought processes. Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics were programmed into real computers thirty years ago at the Massachussetts Institute of Technology – with surprising results. Readers of today still have many surprises in store.

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 the orders given 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
