Summary (From the publisher):

Andrew was one of Earth's first house robots - clean, smoothly designed and functional. But when Andrew started to develop special talents which exceeded the confines of his allotted positronic pathways, he abandoned his domestic duties in favour of more intellectual pursuits. As time passed, Andrew acquired knowledge, feelings and ambitions way beyond anything ever experienced by other mechanical men. And he found himself launched on to a career which would bring him fame, fortune - and danger. For a robot who wanted to be human must also be prepared to die...

In The Bicentennial Man, Isaac Asimov returns to his first and most enduring love - robotics. The result is a brilliant book of first-class entertainment and mind-springing ideas which confirms Asimov's supreme status as Grand Master of science fiction.
