by Isaac Asimov
At some point during my childhood I stopped reading Asimov; I think it was because except for Foundation, I never liked his longer works. That was a mistake, though -- his short stories are sometimes great. In this collection, The Feeling of Power is my favorite; it is a cautionary tail should be read by anybody who thinks that computers belong in the classroom. The Last Question is also good.
