The collection of short stories in this book are wonderful. Each tale has its own charm and many include the familiar caharcters of Dr. Lanning and "cold as sttel" Dr. Calvin. The earliest story was written in 1942, and although it might be considered "dated", it certainly isn't. It's quite difficult to put down as the stories are fast paced and intersting the whole way through. If you are a robot fan, or an Asimov lover, or reader of classic sci-fi, this title is not to be missed!
