How to Survive a Robot Uprising

Just finished reading this.
Very Boring.
Half the book(let) was robot facts, the other half was how to thwart an imaginary aggressive robot using said facts. The book is interleaved, fact, followed by attempted humorous discussion of thwarting robot knowing this.
For example, a robot using a thermal imager to seek and destroy you could be thwarted somewhat by smearing cold mud all over yourself as you flee for your life.
The book is supposed to be in the humour genre, however, its really of the roboticist-telling-you-about-robots-and-trying-to-be-funny-and-failing genre. Which sucks. Quite frankly.
