Summary (From the publisher):

Contains five decades of robot visions—thirty-four landmark stories and essays, including three rare tales—gathered together in one volume.

Meet all of Asimov's most famous creations: Robbie, the very first robot his imagination brought to life; Susan Calvin, the original robot psychologist; Stephen Byerley, the humanoid robot; and the famous human-robot team of Lije Baley and R. Daneel Olivaw, who have appeared in such bestselling novels as The Robots of Dawn and Robots and Empire.

Let the master himself guide you through the key moments in the fictional history of robot-human relations—from the most primitive computers and mobile machines to the first robot to become a man.
