Editorial Reviews

New Yorker

One would be making a mistake to let Mind Children recede unopened into a guiltless oblivion. It's a tonic book, thought-provoking on every page. And it reminds us that, in our accelerating, headlong era, the future presses so close upon us that those who ignore it inhabit not the present but the past.
— Brad Leithauser

New York Times Book Review

A comprehensive and highly readable survey of the state of the art in robotics.
— M. Mitchell Waldrop

Guardian

Moravec, by his own admission, is an intellectual joyrider, and riding his runaway trains of thought is an exhilarating experience...This is an intellectual party that shouldn't be pooped, no matter how much it may disturb the neighbours and encourage over-indulgence.
— Brian Woolley

Byte

[Mind Children] has the accuracy of a college text and the can't-put-it-down appeal of a good novel. Moravec has turned the flights of mind of one of the world's foremost roboticists into hard copy. And he has written a tremendously good book in the process.
— Eric Bobinsky

    Widly speculative and fascinatingly so

    It's hard to find a book by an expert within the robotics industry that's intellligbile to the masses and deals with issues relelvant to us all. Moravec's book is clear, scientifically trustworthy, and utterly fascinating. The one complaint I would really hold against it is that it often seems too speculative with insufficent evidnetial backup - perhaps this is what it takes to make it so fascinating. It touches on so many intersting points and it would've been great if it would've taken the time (perhaps doubling its size) to deal with them in greater depth. I also think many of his more philosophical proclaimations are very controversial and are quite in need of balance from the other side of the coin.
