"This book represents a source that the robotic community was lacking, at least from a general and nontechnical perspective, in the field of social robots ... . this book describes both the foundations and the applications of social robots. ... the interested reader or specialist may enlarge their curiosity by checking the references available at the end of each chapter." (Ramon Gonzalez Sanchez, Computing Reviews, September, 2015)
