Format: Library Binding
This might be the most informative guide to the amazing world of robotics!

The author, Roger Bridgman, stays true to form with the design and layout of the DK Eyewitness Book Series by challenging young readers, ages 9 to 12, to "SEE, LEARN, & DISCOVER" the stories that provide an "eyewitness" account of how robots are changing our world. The content and layout are reminiscent to popular encyclopedia series, except this series engages the reader to think outside the box. The bits of information may seem trivial at first glance, but upon further reading, children will find there is more than meets-the-eye. This is a great book which will serve as a stepping stone for young children who want a well rounded account of robotics from yesterday, today and tomorrow.

The illustrations and photographs are credited to multiple sources - all of which enhance this books educational value. Kids who are visual learners will appreciate the realistic photos and diagrams which work nicely with the text and page layout.

Professor Hsosheng Hu, at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Essex, was consulted before this book was published. The authority and knowledge of Professor Hsosheng Hu is a major advantage point for this series.

First of all DK Eyewitness books are wonderful, beautiful pictures and just enough info for the beginner, makes these books my first choice all the time. I bought this book for my son and daughter along with a robot erector set so they could dabble a bit in robotics. My son has been collecting robots since he was young, the old tin wind up sort, he is hoping for Robosapien this Christmas. This book will give him more info on robotics, a science that is really growing.

This was purchased as a gift for a young 5 year old with a huge imagination and a love of all things scientific. He adored the book and had me explain anything that was above his understanding. A very well written book with tons of information and facts on robots of all sorts. I recommend it highly to interest children in the way things work.

This was the first time I'd ever seen a DK Eyewitness Book, and I was impressed. This was one of the robot items being gifted to a 6-yr old. Even though he doesn't read yet,it'll be a book for him to grow into. For right now, his Daddy can read him the text, and he can look through at the pictures himself.
I was pleased with the book quality and price.

We have since Leonardo's da vinci, time been fascinated and interested in replicating and building who we are complete with movement and accessories.Fiction in the form of reality,for humans has proliferated into frankenstein truth, with which we have always been obsessed in our neverending,quest to duplicate or create,our own species. Humans have always been an, unstoppable force in creating these mechanical minds and bodies.We started from scratch in building the simple single task machines to the more advanced intelligent robots with feelings. Robots is a book that readers will be amazed with full of detailed illustrations, photographs and multiple sources of information.As common today as robots are in the past they still are futuristic in design of appearance,with which is still,a frightning thought, because they behave as unexpectedly as we humans do just like in the terminator saga.Robots are incredibly powerful machines programmed by incredibly smart minds to do single or multi tasks that humans can't do continuously.I have always enjoyed DK books they are informative educational but above all fun, to read for my son and i, and I would recommend, Robots to anyone interested in the future of mechanical gadgetry machinery.

Our 7-year-old son likes robots, and this book has great photos and details. It is about as up-to-date as you can expect.

Whether you are looking for travel guides or books about science topics, DK has the very best books, hands down. They present difficult subject in such a way that even young people can grasp the basics and are not only entertained but engrossed by it. DK also understands that time honored adage that "A picture is worth a thousand words" and they make certain that their text is liberally accompanied by the most beautiful pictures that you can imagine. All in all, any DK book that I have ever purchased, and I have purchased over 45, has been a true pleasure and never a disappointment.

DK Eyewitness books belong on your child's bookshelf.

Get this book for the photographs. Outstanding blurbs and descriptions get the information across without detracting from the visual impact of the photographs.

Highly receommend this book -- it freezes technology at a moment in time and gives great explanations.
