  3. Robert C. Green Robert C. Green says:

    This delightful book manages to harness the science fiction trope of looking back from the future with a confident touch to imagine and explain with startling immediacy the current world of robot research Never ponderous, it doesn t take itself too seriously and informs while entertaining.
