Well written and straight to the point. A must read for inquisitive minds.
The story invites debate on many levels.
If all our needs are met, where would we head? What would we do next?
What do we work for, just to satisfy our needs of food and shelter? or do we do it to satisfy a deep rooted need for purpose?
Where is the "electronics industry" heading?
Will we ultimately be replaced by machines? and if we are, what will we do about it?
This is a tale that defies beliefs and opens possibilities.
Truly fascinating.

I didn't simply read this book...I devoured it.
Although robotics is such a common setting for Science Fiction, I found "Robots on Strike!" a refreshing tale of the possible and realistic repercussions scientific advancement may have, not only on man as an individual, but upon society and mankind in general.
It's reference to Asimov, who not only coined the term, but set the basis for all things "robotic", sets the tone for a tale about computer miniaturization, wireless communication, cloud resource sharing and the exponential growth of technology. But what really sets this book apart is that all of these advancements are not some farfetched idea about the future.
These are actual technologies, concepts and advancements that are found and affect our everyday lives. They are drawn into the future in a logical way that makes the subject much more topical.
The author proposes solutions to the social problems these new technologies present. How to handle a society with no need for a workforce? What are our goals as a species once our basic needs have been met?
In a genre that has fallen prey to monster tales and scare tactics, I found the author willing to engage the reader over a real and meaningful question...where are we headed?
I sincerely hope to see more.

I really enjoyed this short story. It kept my interest, made me think, and clipped along at a fast pace. A well-written work and quite believable.

It is amazing that in 45 pages I should live the most amazing future world. Dowd has managed to put it all in there with a precise use of past and present, creating suspense and putting my mind in a "What if" mode all through. Awaiting the sequel anxiously! and the future film...whatever comes first!

Tom Delaney opens a new frontier to this world.
It's fantastically written. Dowd makes you stop and formulate all sort of hypotheses. What If's...... A totally different dimension is created.
Great book! Really hope to watch this happen. Waiting for more to come.

If you are a fan of Isaac Asimov's science fiction, then you will love this book. It has a fantastic view of where the world might be. The characters are realistic and understandable. the story is quite entertaining, too.

Robots on Strike! is a very entertaining tale about how the world could progress on the mind of the author though a generation.

It gives you the chance not only to take a peak at a possible future, but also rethink about the way things are handled nowadays.

It final twist will leave you with a smile on your face.
