"...a perfect combination of science fiction and politics. The author seamlessly blends lessons about economics and political science into the storyline ... I recommend this story to people who enjoy futuristic tales. I would also recommend it to students who are studying economics and political science ..." Paige Loveitt for Reader Views

"... an entertaining science fiction satire made fascinating because of its behind-the-scenes looks at the bruising world of modern politics." Foreword Clarion Reviews


"... In Taylor's futuristic world, the rich, as ever, enjoy every privilege and the poor struggle to make ends meet. The plots, conspiracies, and revelations are embedded in a culture and politics dramatically familiar to today's socio-political climate. The pacing is smooth and plotting tight. Esmeralda's quest rockets the plot along toward an unexpected yet satisfying conclusion. Taking a subtle yet savage swipe at current political climate, Taylor weaves in a political satire with much food for thought on environmental concerns, poverty, and war. Lighthearted and fun, the novel makes for a page-turning read." The Prairies Book Review


"The First Robot President's dialogue, which composes much of the text, is riveting and realistic ... An informative afterward offers convincing data on population projections for the next several centuries ... Robert Carlyle Taylor's skill in writing dialogue and exploring the ethics of having a robot as president make this novel an intriguing dive into pertinent topics." IndieReader


"An enjoyable and thought-provoking book. The title was intriguing but I really did not expect much. I was pleasantly surprised by how interesting the book turned out to be ... I believe we are facing both a climate crisis and a population crisis. The book addresses both and by setting the novel about 500 years in the future shows clearly the consequences of our failures to act. I found the story well done and it was a fairly quick read. It was interesting to watch the changes in attitudes about the robot as well as the robot's developing intelligence. The novel works on several levels. Of course some will agree with the political views expressed and others will disagree. But in either case this is worth reading." Jack Reidy, NetGalley

"... The mix of politics and economics were fascinating ... a well-thought-out novel." Judge, 8th Annual Writer's Digest Self-Published eBook Awards (refers to eBook edition)
