An exciting science thriller…’
New York Times
‘Isaac Asimov was one of the great explainers of the age…It will never be known how many practicing scientists today, in how many countries, owe their initial inspiration to a book, article, or short story by Isaac Asimov’
‘Asimov displayed one of the most dynamic imaginations in science fiction’
‘Asimov’s career was one of the most formidable in science fiction’
From the Inside Flap
Earth is ruled by master-machines but the Three Laws of Robotics have been designed to ensure humans maintain the upper hand:
1) A robot may not injure a human being or allow a human being to come to harm
2) A robot must obey orders given to it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3) A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.
But what happens when a rogue robot's idea of what is good for society contravenes the Three Laws? --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Avant-garde, this intelligent and thought-provoking novel will keep you immersed until the end. The three laws of robotics, although apparently simple demonstrate how complex the human race can be.
