The three laws of Robotics:
1) A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm
2) A robot must obey orders givein 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.

With these three, simple directives, Isaac Asimov changed our perception of robots forever when he formulated the laws governing their behavior. In I, Robot, Asimov chronicles the development of the robot through a series of interlinked stories: from its primitive origins in the present to its ultimate perfection in the not-so-distant future—a future in which humanity itself may be rendered obsolete.

Here are stories of robots gone mad, of mind-read robots, and robots with a sense of humor. Of robot politicians, and robots who secretly run the world—all told with the dramatic blend of science fact and science fiction that has become Asmiov’s trademark.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Aaron | 2/11/2014

    " An important work in science fiction, it's worth reading for seeing the genesis of so many interesting ideas. But as a source of entertainment the book is kind of meh. The writing isn't that great, most of the characters are pretty one dimensional. I could see it being a decent enough introduction to science fiction for a young reader, though. "

    " Excellent sci-fi. Way better and wayyyy different from the movie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Chris Abel | 1/25/2014

    " This was the very first science fiction book that I read as a youngster, and although much of it feels a bit old fashioned, I love it just as much. "

    " Isaac Asimov was the first sci-fi author I read. I believe his robot novels, especially the short stories in "I, Robot" inspired me to become a programmer. "
