Synopsis

Modern Robotics Building Versatile Machines by Harry Henderson

Although true robots are a creation of the second half of the 20th century, the concept of mechanical servants has stirred the human imagination for a much longer period of time. Images of artificial people and automatons range from Golem, the animated clay statue of myth, to Roomba[registered], the robot vacuum cleaner of modern day. Many scientists and inventors contributed to the understanding of robotics and their development in the modern age. Modern Robotics presents succinct biographies of the men and women who were and are the leaders in bringing about this change through research and new technologies. From Jacques de Vaucanson to Grey Walter to Joseph Engelberger, here is a lively introduction to the field through the stories of its top trailblazers.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
