Rest of the Robots/Asimov, Isaac/Paper/0586025944/S015-C
Robot Tony is the first robot designed to perform domestic duties by the U.S. Robots and Mechanical Men Corporation. Is it Tony's fault that the lady of the house where he's field-tested falls in love with him? Robot Al was intended for shipment to a mining outfit on the moon. Instead, he's loose in the mountains of Virginia...building from scraps of junk his very own, very dangerous disintegrator. Goodbye, Virginia? Robot Lenny answers workaday questions in baby talk. So why is Dr Susan Calvin, the world's top robopsychologist, fascinated by this messed-up specimen of an industrial robot? 'The Rest of the Robots' is the second timeless, amazing and amusing volume of Isaac Asimov's robot stories, offering golden insights into robot thought processes. Asimov's Three Laws of Robotics were programmed into real computers thirty years ago at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology - with surprising results. Readers of today still have many platinum-iridium surprises in store...
