This review is from: How to Survive a Robot Uprising: Tips on Defending Yourself Against the Coming Rebellion (Paperback)
Now its not really fair to directly compare 'How to survive a robot uprising' and Max Brook's excellent 'World War Z' World War Z, but some comparison is inevitable. Whilst WWZ is a imaginative, detailed, and throughly entertaining, 'robot uprising' is very primitive. Basically the small book consists of about 200 words on each type/aspect of robotics and its current state of research (as it's a book it's immediately out of date), and then that's kind of spun round to say the limits in current research are weaknesses to exploit in an uprising. There's no real kind of discussion of what an uprising would be like.
I thought the book was rather dull. That all said the artistry in the book is excellent if not abstract.
