How To Survive A Robot Uprising
How to Survive a Robot Uprising: Tips on Defending Yourself Against the Coming Rebellion - Daniel H. Wilson

I was expecting something slightly more funny and less serious, but How to Survive a Robot Uprising tackles the upcoming robot-apocalypse describing different types of robots that will bring our demise. It is easily portable and fits in a pocket, gives tips about escaping a smart house and if anything, made me aware of all the possible thing that can kill me.

Quick read, not as funny as I expected it to be though, and I'm afraid that in the event of a robot-apocalypse most of the information might be out-dated.

A must read if you want to learn how to fight robots
How to Survive a Robot Uprising: Tips on Defending Yourself Against the Coming Rebellion - Daniel H. Wilson,Stefan Rudnicki

After reading this, I realized that if the robots rebel, I'm screwed.

How to Survive a Robot Uprising is a very amusing compendium of different types of robots and how you can fight them when the need arises. Among other things, tips include how to escape from smart houses and fight snake robots (for real.) Sadly though, fighting the robots will too hard for me - basically, you'll have to live in caves - so I guess I'll have to betray the human race and join our robot foe (I like my comforts too much to give them up.)

The narration by Stefan Rudnicki was just hysterical. He was just perfect, definitely tongue in cheek. When he said 'how could Hollywood be so wrong' in that tone of voice which implied we were crazy for doubting the movies, I almost burst a lung laughing.

The book includes information on real robots which sometimes got a bit technical so it may not be the cup of tea of somebody not into the topic. But hey, I laughed and I learned so at the end, I couldn't have asked for more.

How To Survive a Robot Uprising: Tips on Defending Yourself Against the Coming Rebellion
How to Survive a Robot Uprising: Tips on Defending Yourself Against the Coming Rebellion - Daniel H. Wilson I was expecting something a kin to 'world war z' and 'the zombie survival guide' both of which were highly entertaining. This book however was not. Some nice artwork, a few quotes from 'terminator', and the occasional glimpse of potential hazards in a world full of robots, but not entertaining, not engaging enough, not enough pop-culture (if that is the way it was supposed to go – I’m not sure) and a pretty superficial look at something that could have been interesting if it wanted to be more thought provoking. My only thought at the end of it was ‘is that it?’ There is not enough content here to warrant a whole book.
