Here is what the good Doctor has to say about the selection "I must admit the title of this book gives me pause. Who says the enclosed stories are my `best'? Do I? Does the editor? Or some critic? Some reader? A general vote among the entire population of the world?
And whoever says it–can it be so? Can the word 'best' mean anything at all, except to some particular person in some particular mood? … So I'll be honest with all of you. What is included here in this book are a dozen stories chosen in such a way as to span a third of a century of writing … I suppose we ought really call the book, `The Pretty Good and Pretty Representative Stories of Isaac Asimov', but who would then buy it? So `best' it is."
