Reread this collection of wonderful short stories. I read them first about 25 years ago. Hard to pick a favorite story - they are all so good. But, as a constant dieter, I am particularly fond of the "Iron Chancellor." A family gets a new robot they name Bismarck. They program the new model to prepare food to allow each member of the family to lose weight. Things go awry when the folks tire of the diet and try to reprogram the Iron Chancellor. Quite funny.
