(pictorial covers; no dust jacket) [the "Putnam Guaranteed Library Binding," although this is NOT an ex-library book; moderate soiling to covers, light bumping/fraying to a couple of corners, internally clean]. (The Wonders of Science Library) Series "There are robots all around us. They do not clank, neither do they resemble the tin woodman in The Wizard of Oz. Many robots are smaller than the home thermostat, which is itself a robot. [The author] describes how man designs robots to control certain anticipated happenings. A robot is not required to think, but it does 'feel' or 'see' or 'hear,' or perhaps possesses a combination of such senses. Its job is to react to the condition which it does sense." (You know, like "Danger! Danger! That does not compute!")
