The Complete Robot (1982). This is a collection of thirty-one robot short stories published between 1940 and 1976 and includes every story in my earlier collection I, Robot (1950). Only one robot short story has been written since this collection appeared. That is "Robot Dreams," which has not yet appeared in any Doubleday collection.(less)

Strong Opinions: a Susan Calvin story

Weems landed his helijet neatly, and congratulated himself on his early start. When he managed to get the coveted parking spot closest to the front gate of U.S. Robots, he always felt that the rest of the day would be a success too. He flashed his badge at the security guard, and took the fast pediwalk to his office. Now he would get half an hour to work undisturbed! But he had barely hung up his hat before the visiphone buzzed.

Just finished reading The Complete Robot by Isaac Asimov, if you all haven’t read it you should do so. It contains all the stories from I, Robot as well, not the Will Smith paff though, it is completely different.
Here is a run down of the stories.

This one took some time.

Not because it was hard to read, or because it was bad. I was actually saving it. I didn't enjoy binge reading the short stories. They went too fast. I ended up reading one or two between each other book I read. I read one and sort of ruminated on it for a while. It was the way I could enjoy the stories the most, I figured.

I enjoyed the various stories differently. Sometimes the puzzle/conflict it presented was the part I enjoyed the most, sometimes the way the characters

I've always liked Asimov's work -- one of my favourites has always been the expanded version of one of the short stories in this volume, The Positronic Man -- and so this was a nice familiar read for me. I've read some of the stories, while some were less familiar, but it is a bit like comfort eating: with Asimov, I know exactly what I'm getting. It'd be a bit much to start here with Asimov, I think, and read all the short stories start to finish. I'd pick a smaller collection, rather than a col ...more

(I, Robot, is the first collection of short stories. Second is The Rest of the Robots. Robot Dreams only has one new story in it. The Complete Robot is reported to be truly complete.)

Ok, the edition I read has 31 stories. Doubleday/ Nightfall, 1982. Stories originally from 1939 to 1977. Perhaps all editions the same, I dunno, but there you are.

It also has a nice concise introduction about Robot-as-Menace and Robot-as-Pathos and related thoughts, and is organized by theme or (slice of) world-bui

I thank Asimov, for bringing me out of a mess which he undoubtedly would have no idea about. It goes like this, I had within me something that approached "Reader's block", I could not complete a book in almost over a month now. I tried Woolf's "Orlando" which became words and finally letters to me which made no sense, I tried Richard Dawkins's "The greatest show.." and my brain short circuited ( for no fault of Dawkin's I may add here, a most interesting piece of work that..).

All stories grip you, and some of the stories are absolutely brilliant and leave a large amount of after thought.

Of the ones I enjoyed most are -

1. Victory Unintentional - Hilarious, hope he had written more such humorous stories!
2. Robbie - One of the masterpieces that get you acquainted with an Asimov robot.
3. Someday - Nice ending.
4. Galley Slave - One academic author, who due to his initial hatred and inability to understand robots, and ignorance, uses a robot incorrectly resulting in a vers

Almost one-stop shopping for all your robots-by-Asimov needs. Most, but not all, of Asimov's robot and robot-like stories are included here, including all of the stories from I, Robot. I wouldn't suggest reading this instead, of course, because you're missing all of the wonderful bridging narration. Even having already read I, Robot, Robot Dreams, and Robot Visions, I still found plenty of stories that were new to me. Exciting, for me, and it made reading the book more than worthwhile.

This includes I, Robot as well as a bunch of other robot stories. All in all it's an enjoyable collection.

Does it add much to the experience of reading I, Robot? Somewhat. The other stories are much the same thing in many cases and quite different in others. It's a bit jumpier in flow since it's a heavy collection, but there are some gems included here that really stood out: "The Tercentenary Incident", "Victory Unintentional", and "The Bicentennial Man". Aside from that last story, it doesn't

Questa bellissima raccolta che riunisce i più importanti racconti di Asimov sui robot, è stata curata dall'autore stesso, che li ha ordinati non in ordine cronologico ma in base al tema del racconto.
Tutti i miei robot è uno dei pilastri di tutta l'opera del grande scrittore e la base da cui partire per leggere le sue opere successive (ciclo dei Robot e quello della Fondazione). I trentuno racconti (alcuni teneramente ingenui), scritti tra il 1939 e il 1977, e che delineano il successo della fant
My dad just discovered Prelude To Foundation, and was excited to discover that Asimov had written books in the series beyond the original trilogy. I had recently become aware of this as well, but also found many books in the series written by other authors. Because publication date does no correspond with storyline date, I felt overwhelmed. But the into to Prelude includes Asimov's list of the order in which he feels his 14 robot, Empire and Foundation books should be read. The list only lacks F ...more
My first Asimov book and I loved it, from the first till the last story included. His Foundation Trilogy is still waiting to be read, but as I saw this collection of short stories, I decided to tackle these first.

'The Complete Robot' is said to contain all of his robot stories that were published previously in other compilations or magazines, and a few other ones that didn't make it into those earlier compilations. Everything is neatly explained in the foreword (and the different introductions t
Tutti i robot di Asimov, o quasi, nel bene e nel male. Non so se è stato un errore aver preferito questa indigestione di robot rispetto a una più ordinata lettura dei diversi libri che compongono il ciclo, ma l'effetto è esattamente quello che mi aspettavo: il quadro più ampio possibile di cosa sono e significano i robot per Asimov.
Molto azzeccata la classificazione dei racconti, divisi per tipologia e natura dei robot, dai "robot-frankestein" ai "robottoni metallici" fino all'evoluzione dei rob

I read a lot of Asimov's robot short stories in my early teens, but never the novels and neither the Foundation books. Having discovered that the robot books are a prelude to Foundation I was intrigued to revisit.

I have to say that as stories they're a mixed bag. The early ones are not very well written,but do introduce important concepts into the robots' evolutions - rather fable like in many ways. I found the prose forced and the characters shallow, added to that the early robots were treated

Большинство рассказов весьма примитивны и следуют одной теме: мы придумали клёвые три закона, но несмотря на них и иногда благодаря им роботы всё равно какой-то хренью страдают. Но есть очень классные, серьёзные, берущие за душу рассказы, немного отходящие от этой линии.

Сабрани роботи су, као што знамо, једно од најпознатијих дјела Исака Асимова. У питању је збирка прича која се зове Сабрани роботи, пошто су у питању приче о, је ли, роботима, које су, што би се рекло, сабране, ас ин - скупљене на једно мјесто. А сви знамо за Три закона роботике и колико Асимов воли роботе и све то...

... али проблем је што ово километрима (да не кажем миљама) далеко од добре књиге :-( Први и основни разлог је тај што Исак Асимов, ту пут ит блантли, једноставно није добар писац.

First published in 1982 and Asimov having written other robots stories after that, 'The Complete Robot' is, well, not so complete after all! A few short stories are indeed missing (e.g. 'Robot Dream'), a disappointing fact I for one wish the publisher would have addressed by now!
Well, misleading title aside, here's nevertheless a remarkable anthology which is definitely a must-read. Indeed it will please both those curious enough to have a glimpse at Asimov's work (SF master who came up with th

Tutti i miei robot è un'antologia di racconti di fantascienza di Isaac Asimov, del 1982. O per meglio dire è l'Antologia, proprio con la "A" maiuscola. L'opera summa dei suoi scritti con il soggetto "Robot" e ricordiamo che Mr Asimov, è il padre dei robot, così come delle famosissime tre leggi:

The reason why I decided to read this book was that, some time ago I read two short stories by Asimov that I found tottaly amazing : The last question and the last answer. And so I wanted to read more.
However I didn't really find in this book what I had loved in those other short stories.
What I loved about those stories ( and I think what makes any short story great ) was that in a few pages they managed to set up a unique universe, introduce a few good characters ( without going into too mu

Three Laws of Robotics:
1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3.A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.

I suppose I'd have to give this book a four-star rating. This is the third book of Asimov's robot stories that I've read (along with "I, Robot" and "Robot Dreams"). I'd have to honestly say that I liked "Robot Dreams" better because it had great stories in it and the robot stories in that volume were intermingled with sensational non-robot sci-fi tales.

The reason why I'd still give this one a four-star rating is the sense of completeness that it offers fans of Asimov. Say you want to go and read

Asimov has built a layered ,belieaveble & complex Robo-verse, and interesting Human-Artificial Intelligence interaction and conflicts based on his self-formulated "three laws of robotics" in these collection of short stories. Such an exciting read and complete eye opening experience (and introduction) to hard-science fiction and its tropes.
The true stand out from these collection IMO is 'The Bicentennial Man', examining both robotics and human existentialism, where and when do they both inte

All the Robot you could ever need! This doorstop of a book collects the majority of Asimov's Robot Short stories, which chart the development of man's relationship with his creation.

The stories are sharp, well written and have a huge scope to them. This is considered 'hard' science fiction (as opposed to the fantasy space opera kind), but is immensely readable none the less.

Considered by Asimov himself to be the starting point for his 14 book 'Future History', this is a must for any self-respec
