|This was the art on the copy I read. If you like book covers which have nothing at all to do with the actual content of the book, this is the cover for you.|

Isaac Asimov's The Caves of Steel was first published in '58. And yeah, there's some stuff in it which is kinda creaky. It didn't age 100% well. The computers in it, for instance, are comically slow.
One thing I thought interesting.There is, essentially, a Voight Kamf test which takes place in the book. It's not to test whether someone is a robot but rather whether a robot has a working 1st Law of Robotics in place.
