My interest with robots started after purchasing my (iRobot Roomba):
A small circular robotic device that is cleaning the floor beneath my feet as I'm writing this review.
I really enjoyed this book because its simple narrative and thought provoking illustrations and images made the important topic of humanlike robots accessible to people like me who are not experts in science and robotics. (but now that they no longer have to clean the floor, have time to read about it).
The book opens a window to the future and allows us to envision the changes that this future entails.
As the book observes ""even though we cannot really predict the full range and specific changes that human-inspired robots may bring about, the power of our imagination may help to examine the coming impact of robots".
And now after reading this book, I feel that the fundamental changes that we imagine humanlike robots will bring to our lives and society, are right around the corner.
