This book is so similar to "How to Survive a Robot Uprising", by the same author, that it raises a few problems.
First, it's really too similar. Part of it covers what robots are and if the previous book explained how to contrast them, here the focus is on how to use them. But the explanation itself it largely the same.
Second, a matter of "loyalty". You either side with men or with robots. After you learned to mistrust robots in the other book, to spot their weaknesses, to recognize when they are about to attack us... you can't just switch side and put your life in their metallic hands. You just can't. On the other hand, if you started building your own robot army, you won't like the other book, which will put them in a very different, eerie light.
This said, the book is really well written, so it's really a matter of which you read first. The second won't match it, regardless of which was the first. Choose your book according to your inclination. Are you a survivalist? Pick the other. Are you a supervillain inside? Pick this one, even if it's largely about defence itself.
