I, Robot

By Isaac Asimov

Imagine the movie "I, Robot" without copious amounts of product placement and Will Smith. This is the basic premise for the compilation of short stories known as "I, Robot." It follows the life of Robopsychologist Susan Calvin and the creation of robots as we know them today, starting with the ones barely intelligent enough to walk and leading to the ones that eventually become smarter than humans themselves, thanks to their positronic brains. Some stories are funny, others are sad, but all of them are very well thought out and will make you question humanity as a whole. A fantastic read for anybody into Sci-Fi, but an even better read for anybody looking for something that will challenge how they think and act.
