It is 1970, and electronics engineer Dan Davis has finally made the invention of a lifetime: a household robot with extraordinary abilities, destined to dramatically change the landscape of everyday routine. Then, with wild success just within reach, Dan's greedy partner and even greedier fiancée steal his work and leave him penniless, and trick him into taking the long sleep—suspended animation for thirty years.

Tammy's D: The Door into Summer by Robert A. Heinlein. This is the time travel story that is supposed to be one of the standard bearers for the genre. It dealt with the paradoxes very well, although the book is a bit dated now. It starts in 1970 and goes to 2001, but having been written in the '50s, it had lots of things wrong in both those years. Still worth reading --just requires another kind of mental time travel.
