Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amy S. Hansen
Part of the "Robots and Robotics" series, this book will fly off the shelf. Though this title is not quite as startling as Space Robots, by the same author, info-seeking readers will still revel in the pictures and discussion of the surgical robots, robotic nurses, and the robots that allow doctors to perform remote surgery. "Surgeons can now perform robotic surgery from thousands of miles away. The surgeon controls the robot through a computer link. In 2001, a surgeon in the United States operated on a patient in France!" The robots work in places humans cannot, performing tasks that humans would find boring and repetitive. Colorful photos take up at least one-third of each page. This is a high-tech book, which discusses about real science. It feels, though, like these robots are out of a science-fiction story, a story that includes danger of hospitals and cool-looking machines. Back matter includes on how to become a robot expert, a glossary, and an index. Reviewer: Amy S. Hansen
