A lavishly illustrated collection of short interviews with people from all over the field of robotics. The book is 240 pages long, but no one interview comprises more than four pages within it, interspaced with the illustrations.

As a result, it skims the surface and gives a good overview, but never delves into any depth. Extremely lightweight, its almost a ?robotics interview of the day? sort of book, with minimal correlation in the ordering of interviews.

The tone of the book is post-human to say the least. It is concerned with our children, not as flesh and blood, but as the artificial bodies that may well eventually replace humans, or at very least, live beside them.
