    The Book Foundation was launched in by former Hollywood producer and social entrepreneur, Ruth Stalford. The initial idea was simple: get new books into the hands of children in underserved areas. The research was clear, children growing up in homes with no books are “on average” three years behind children in homes with lots of books. The author himself, Isaac Asimov, wrote in the Author's Note of the Prelude to Foundation that he is providing a guide for those readers that might appreciate it since the books "were not written in the order in which (perhaps) they should be read." Therein, he offers the following chronological order: The Complete Robot () Collection of 31 Short Stories about robots.

Praise for Isaac Asimov and his Foundation series “A true polymath, a superb rationalist, an exciting and accessible writer in both fiction and nonfiction, Isaac Asimov was simply a master of all he surveyed.”—Greg Bear “Asimov served wondrous meals-of-the-mind to a civilization that was starved for clear thinking about the future.
