From the Author:

I learned to write plain English as a proposal writer in General Dynamics; if my prospective customer did not easily understand my stuff he did not buy my product. In my own companies I continued to teach customers, with simple English, about new technology. Now, as an expert witness, I explain technology to lay jurors and hold their attention as well as their understanding. Friends say that they can hear my voice when they read my words. (Yes, I do re-read Strunk & White every year.) This book contains the philosophical essence of a long career inventing, designing, building, selling, and making work a broad spectrum of automatic machines and real industrial robots.

About the Author:

The author has been an engineer and entrepreneur making real robots and other automatic machines for actual use in real-world industry.

"The three subjects of our title started as two separate books, 'Robots' and 'Smart Machines.' However as a result of the enormous progress of the computer art, the third idea, 'Artificial People,' journalists and futurists. Therefore it made sense to merge and compare the three related ideas in a single book. Robots and other smart machines are not artificial people. They are made by real people, for real people - and sometimes against real people." -------- from the Introduction. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Ex-Library. Seller Inventory # 047993
