Review by Hugh on 12th August, 2011
 
4 stars "A t'weens history of Pop Culture Robots"

A magazine look at movie bots that have graced our screens. Light on detail and targeted at headline readers this book still runs the gambit of movie ( and TV) robots through the 20th century and into the twenty first.
Hardback and gloss photo's make it a worthwhile addition to your library if robots are your thing.

Description

A light-hearted roundup of robots in popular culture, fiction, films, TV, animation and toys.

From the earliest robots through to the 21st Century's cutting-edge automatons, Simon Furman highlights the influential, the radical and the downright weird: from Robby to Gigolo Joe, from Asimov to Douglas Adams, from Robot Sparky to Transformers.

Chapters include Robots Go Galactic, When Robots Go Bad, Spaced-Out Robots and Robots with Dangerous Curves.

Packed with stunning color photographs and infused with Simon Furman's enthusiasm and wit, this book will be a treasure trove for all robot fans.
