Tosh Tell me about this book. Is it one of the first books about he concept of robots?

message 2: by Harry (new) - added it

Harry Collier iv I am unsure if there was a wide-market for artificial beings before this book but it is the first instance of the word ROBOT being used.
The word is actually from the Slavic word работать which translates to work.
In the stories the robots are workers.
