I, Robot


I, Robot is a collection of short stories by Isaac Asimov, exploring the concept of robots that follow his Three Laws of Robotics in ways that result in strange and unexpected behavior. This is science fiction at its best; each short story effectively presents a puzzle that can be solved only by proper application of the Three Laws. The reader has the opportunity to puzzle why a robot would turn his subordinate robots into a marching band, whether a too-good-to-be-true politician is a robot or simply a very moral human, why a mind-reading robot might not be much use at all, and what to do when a robot gets religion.

This is definitely an ideas book, but it's a good one, and a classic of the genre. Any fan of science fiction should read it.
