"2035: Robotic technology has evolved into the realm of self-aware, sentient mechanical entities. The future of the human race is to be inevitably linked with its most brilliant creation. But there are some who do not want the future to arrive ... Intelligent and driven, Dr. Susan Calvin is beginning her residency in psychiatry at Manhattan Hasbro teaching hospital, where a select group of patients is receiving the latest in diagnostic advancements--nanotechnology. Tiny nanobots injected into the spinal fluid can locate and assess neural pathways and transmitters, unlocking and mapping the physiological workings of the human mind.

They begin exhibiting extreme behavior, from shocking violence to baffling self-destructive tendencies. And when she tries to alert her superiors to the situation, she is met with callous disregard by those who want to keep their project far from any controversy or scrutiny for the sake of their own agenda. But what no one knows is that a technology that promised to improve life is now under the control of those who seek to spread only death ..."--

I'm not sure why Asimov's estate licensed his characters for this book. And I'm not sure the writer does Susan Calvin any justice. The writing seems stilted and I found Calvin more annoying than sympathetic. If you're an Asimov fan, this series might just annoy you like it did me. If I hadn't read Asimov, I might have been able to enjoy it a little. Oh well.

Enjoyed the book, had to finish reading it in the first two days of borrowing (was a page turner). Has a good plot with believable characters and good character development, develing into concepts of artifical intelligence, Ethicial considerations of hospitals and psychy of the human mind. Is a definite worthwhile read especially for any university student studying psychology or Philosophy or who is just interested in these subjects.
