Why did I (the author) write this book?

As an experienced teacher and a Roboticist who plays with robots daily, I have gained a good understanding of the Robotics field. I have seen that people often fear and avoid robotics books because they think the concepts are hard to grasp. But, I can teach in a way that even a child can understand. Through this book, I hope to shed light on the fundamental ideas of robotics without making you scratch your head, pondering about mathematics or the programming of a robot. I hope to take you on a brief journey to expand your understanding of robots and clear any misconceptions you have regarding robotics.
