Does the complete robot include I Robot?
There are three “robot” collections, “I, Robot”, “The Rest of the Robots”, and somewhat later (’76) “Bincentennial Man & Other Stories”. “The Complete Robot” includes the stories from all three. Except, in ’86 Asimov repackaged the robot stories in two volumes, “Robot Dreams” & “Robot Visions”.
Which Asimov should I read first?
I suggest starting with The Caves of Steel, which is a really well-written murder mystery as well as a sci-fi portrayal of the future. If you liked it, read the sequels The Naked Sun, and The Robots of Dawn. Then, if you want more about robots, the I, Robot stories.
What comes after Caves of Steel?
The Naked Sun
A Doubleday hardcover followed in 1954. At the time of writing, Asimov conceived of The Caves of Steel as completely distinct from his Foundation Trilogy, published a few years earlier….The Caves of Steel.

Is Isaac Asimov worth reading?
Worth the read? Definitely. My first Asimov book was an omnibus with the first three Foundation books, and I try to re-read them once every 1 or 2 years. I really like the short story structure of the first few books, makes it a good read if you are busy with life.
Should I read prequel first?
The prequel doesn’t have the same payoff, the same inside jokes, or even the same love and adoration if you read it first. Reading the prequel first leaves readers at a disadvantage. They don’t come at it with the same reactions, or the same sense of anticipation.

What are the 3 laws in I Robot?
The first law is that a robot shall not harm a human, or by inaction allow a human to come to harm. The second law is that a robot shall obey any instruction given to it by a human, and the third law is that a robot shall avoid actions or situations that could cause it to come to harm itself.
Should you read prequels first?
You should read the book series in the order that they were published. It’s much more fun to read the main book first and meet a lot of characters and afterwards learn more about the background of the characters. If you read the prequels first, that sense of mystery that every new story you start has is gone.
