Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
THE MOST FAMOUS ROBOTS IN SCIENCE FICTION HISTORY

Asimov's robots have brains of platinum-iridium sponge. Their 'brain paths' are marked out by the production and destruction of positrons. These 'positronic robots' obey the famous Three Laws of Robotics.

THE COMPLETE ROBOT contains all of Asimov’s robot stories, including some which have never previously appeared in book form.

As well as TN-3 (Tony) and AL-76 and other robots, the stories feature the staff of the US Robots and Mechanical Men Corporation -- in particular, of course, the chief robot-psychologist, the steely Dr Susan Calvin.

THE COMPLETE ROBOT is Asimov’s definitive collection of his chilling visions of a robotic future . . .
