I got this one to re-read Nightfall story, but found more thought-provoking stories. Since these are old, some of them deal with the atom bombs, the possibility of the atom war destroying the planet, and have the undercurrent of the enmity between the U.S. and Russia. Despite that anachronistic last part (U.S. and Russia aren't enemies anymore), I've enjoyed the stories. I like the way Asimov turns everything around by the end of each story. The stories that made the most impression on me were "Living Space," "Someday," "Profession," "The Gentle Vultures," "The Last Question" along with many more (too hard to choose, and not counting those stories I'd read previously).
