Greatest science fiction series of all time.

That's a pretty strong endorsement. Might have to check it out. My father is an Asimov fanatic, but I've never read any. It makes me feel like I'm missing out on something important.

I'd say start with Foundation if you want a gigantic space epic spanning hundreds of thousands of years and light years but start with I, Robot if you want a series of short stories about his famous 3 laws of robotics. They sort of go in opposite directions, one out into space, the other into the logic or a purely logical being, both good, but very different feeling.
