Author Info
Isaac Asimov
A Russian-born American novelist, versifier, critic, and popular scientist, Asimov is best known for his science fiction. The author and his family emigrated to the U.S. in 1923. His parents allowed him to read only non-fiction books as a child, which initiated his lifelong interest in science. Asimov had his first book published in 1951 and the following year, under the pseudonym Paul French, he published his first children's book. The author of over 350 fiction and non-fiction books, Asimov wrote 10 hours a day, seven days a week. Asimov also earned a Ph.D. in chemistry at Columbia University, and was as respected an academic biochemist as he was a science fiction writer. An indefatigable lecturer and contributor to newspapers and magazines, Asimov came to be increasingly regarded as a scientific seer, and was responsible for adding the term "robotics" to the English language.
From the Publisher
Annotation Dr. Susan Calvin is a 75-year-old Robopsychologyist retiring from U.S. Robots in the year 2057 when she is interviewed by a reporter from the Interplanetary Press. Her interview forms the narrative of this novel, covering her participation in the development of independent, sensible, and rational robots, ruled by the three entrenched laws of robotics, and the many lessons of her career that have led her to contend that robots are more human than people and that they are vital to human survival.
First Line I looked at my notes and I didn't like them.
Editors Note A classic collection of interlocking tales chronicles the near-future development of the robot and features models that have the ability to read minds, experience human emotions, and take over the world--and, perhaps, render humankind itself obsolete. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
