Should I read this book?

To answer questions about I, Robot, please sign up.
Jitka Egressy definetely yes. It's short - so don't worry.
Mainon Yes. It's a classic and has held up fairly well, meaning it doesn't seem too dated.
Viktor Ambrus Sure! If you like Asimov and Robots, you will enjoy this book. :)
Sydney Gorelick Of course! It's an amazing book and I loved it, just be warned it reads like a few short stories.
Jesus Valdez Almaral De-fi-ni-te-ly.
Steven Dunlap The movie with Will Smith only superficially resembles this series of short stories. Each story stands the test of time as Asimov predicted much of the future of robotics. All of the stories are entertaining, intelligent and interesting.
Christoffer Jensen Should I purchase "I, Robot" or "The Complete Robot"?
David I would also say yes. It also shows how robots can evolve from assembly-line robots like we have today to service robots that replaces people in hazardous places to the point where they can literally become self-aware.

With the recent advancements of AI, this is both a glimpse of we could see in the future and a warning of the issues we may face.
