    A wonderful, entertaining and interesting read that fires the imagination without the need to explain ideas in great detail.These four short stories all examine the human mind in crisis to a greater or lesser extent and whilst two are worthy of the full five star rating the others are not quite so high but overall it's still a very good collection and one that is from the more obscure end of the Asimov cannon.My favourite story is most definitely the opener, A Beautiful Day, about a future socie [...]

    A short collection containing only four stories but generally of a very high standard. There are no unifying themes running through the stories so I will discuss them individually."A Beautiful Day" is a story about the future when people no longer need to go outside because everywhere are linked by teleportation doors and have become quite agoraphobic, except for one boy who is forced to go outside after their door temporarilly breaks down."Belief" is a very good story about a man's dreams about [...]

    FYI - The rating is really "3.5" not "3", but I didn't want to mislead with the "4".The contents of the book are four longer short stories. All of which can be found in other places (3 in "Nightfall and Other Stories" - which I have also read and probably own.)What's good about this collection is that it demonstrates the versatility that Asimov brought to his writing. None of the stories are really alike; instead they offer different facets of futuristic development of our science, people, and p [...]

    This was a collection of four long-ish short stories by Dr. Asimov. I'd definitely read one of them before and two of the others seemed to be vaguely familiar, but I enjoyed them all. The stories are typical Asimov, by which I mean that they'll not change your opinion of him either way. They're about ideas, not characters, although the last one, The C-Chute is more character-based than is usual for Asimov. If you like Asimov then you'll probably enjoy these stories, if you don't, this won't chan [...]

    Asimov presents interesting ideas in this collection of short stories. I enjoyed "It's Such A Beautiful Day" for it's take on the way a teleportation-like system would affect our society, and "the c-chute' for it's different perspectives on war, and the idea of patriotism.

    3.5The four short stories in this book were all brilliant (my favourites being the first and the third) and quick reads. The message behind them were simple enough but important. They were well written throughout. Can't wait to read some more Asimov.

    Wonderful stories! I enjoyed all four and will definitely be reading more Asimov.

    A small collection (4 stories) of longer short stories from Asimov. I recall I did like "It's such a beautiful day" as it still sticks with me.

    I listed to "The C Chute" on audiobook and found it to be an enjoyable short story with a few interesting characters. Nothing mind blowing, but a fairly fun and very quick read.
