Minor Spoilers Ahead

At the end of the short stories there are a few essays by Asimov about robots. Be aware that some excerpts from the 'Robot' and 'Foundation' series are included. It is precisely because of those essays that this is a must read for any Asimov fan.

3 Laws of Robotics

As far as I know, this collection features ALL of Asimov's short stories that involve robots asand Asimov's "3 Laws".
The book actually OPENS with a "new", previously unpublished story. It's actually one of the best in the entire collection, so it's nice to see that old Ike hasn't lost his touch.
Isaac Asimov's HAS published hundreds and hundreds of robot sci-fi, but a good majority of those works aren't actually WRITTEN by Asimov, he was only the editor.
"Robot Visions" is a collection of ONLY the stories that were penned by the author himself. None of any of the stories in which he merely edited appear within its pages.

I had read MOST of these stories in previous robot collections released under Isaac Asimov, but it was really great to find a few that I was previously unaware of.

The narrator does a bang-up job too. The voices he gives to each of the robots is pretty much petfect. Even "Bicentennial Man", a story by Asimov that I had never really cared for before, comes through with shining colors, all thanks to good narration.

Definitely pick this title up if you are ANY format of science fiction fan.
