**A Daily Mail Book of the Year and Sunday Times bestseller** What happens on the pitch is only half the story. Being a footballer is not just kicking a ball about with twenty-one other people on a big grass rectangle. Sometimes being a footballer is about accidentally becoming best mates with Mickey Rourke, or understanding why spitting is considered football’s most heinous crime. In How to be a Footballer, Peter Crouch took us into a world of bad tattoos and even worse haircuts, a world where you’re on the pitch one minute, spending too much money on a personalised number plate the next. In I, Robot, he lifts the lid even further on the beautiful game. We will learn about Gareth Bale’s magic beans, the Golden Rhombus of Saturday night entertainment, and why Crouchy’s dad walks his dog wearing an England tracksuit from 2005. Whether you’re an armchair expert, or out in the stands every Saturday, crazy for five-a-side or haven’t put on a pair of boots since school, this is the real inside story of how to be a footballer.

Susan Calvin is about to enter her second year as a psych resident at the Manhattan Hasbro teaching hospital when a violent crime strikes very close to home. When she was young, Susan lost her mother in a terrible car wreck that also badly injured her father. She now believes the accident was orchestrated by government officials who wanted her parents dead. Susan has always known there was a faction of the U.S. government that wanted to hijack her father’s work for military use. Now it seems that faction is back. As she struggles to overcome her pain and confusion, as well as deal with her studies, Susan finds herself hunted by violent antitech vigilantes who would revert mankind to the Dark Ages—and at the same time she’s being watched very closely by extremists who want high-tech genocide. Somehow she must find a way to stop them both.

Would we be able to coexist with such beings and overcome our presumption of superiority? These and other questions are what Isaac Asimov explores in his legendary stories of robots.

Inspired by Science Fiction Grand Master Isaac Asimov’s I, Robot stories. 2037: Robotic technology has evolved into the realm of self-aware, sentient mechanical entities. But despite the safeguards programmed into the very core of a robot’s artificial intelligence, humanity’s most brilliant creation can still fall prey to those who believe the Three Laws of Robotics were made to be broken... N8-C, better known as Nate, has been Manhattan Hasbro Hospital’s resident robot for more than twenty years. A prototype, humanoid in appearance, he was created to interact with people. While some staff accepted working alongside an anthropomorphic robot, Nate’s very existence terrified most people, leaving the robot utilized for menial tasks and generally ignored. Until one of the hospital’s physicians is found brutally murdered with Nate standing over the corpse, a blood-smeared utility bar clutched in his hand. As designer and programmer of Nate’s positronic brain, Lawrence Robertson is responsible for his creation’s actions and arrested for the crime. Susan Calvin knows the Three Laws of Robotics make it impossible for Nate to harm a human being. But to prove both Nate’s and Lawrence’s innocence, she has to consider the possibility that someone somehow manipulated the laws to commit murder...

Hilarious parodies of Lord of the Rings, the Bourne trilogy, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, Xena: Warrior Princess, Total Recall, I, Robot, and the Die Hard trilogy. Or as I call them, Load of the Rings, Harpocrates, Xenon, Porn Born, starring Chasten Porn (nothing naughty, just a name), Totally Reek, Y'all, Diet Hard, and My Robot. Here's a sample of that, 'Will Smith plays Dull Snooper, a young cop who loves robots so much he even cut off his own arm just so he could have a robot arm put on.' Perhaps I missed the spirit of the piece. Meet Booboo Baggies, Skipper the Ranger, Harpo and Yo Lass, Xenon and Gabby Well, Xenon's daughter, Pinto. Speaking of names, a spy needs inconspicuous names on his fake ID's such as Dildo Pimpernel of Saskatoon, Jar Jar Binks of Katmandu, and Troma Kinky, of Kubla Khan.

"I Ought to be Thy Adam": Asimov's I, Robot, Creation, and Personhood will examine the religious importance of artificial intelligence narratives by focusing on Isaac Asimov's I, Robot. It will begin by examining the history of artificial intelligence, both in science and in fiction, and argue for the importance of Asimov's work in these fields. It will focus on the creator/creation relationship in the I, Robot stories and examine the ways in which robots can be important participants in the debate over personhood and identity. This work will examine the ways in which Asimov creates a moral framework and how this ethical system interacts with questions of personhood and identity. It will argue that science fiction and I, Robot make important contributions to the religious discussion of creation and selfhood and that they are uniquely situated to play a role in future conceptions of artificial intelligence and identity.
