The year is 2484. Thomas Jenkins orders a robot wife-a high-end model with an exceptional I.Q. Soon after she arrives, Thomas learns that his robowife wants to become a mother and run for Congress. Someone suggests that she can fulfill the first goal by adopting a child, but no one takes the second goal seriously. Little does anyone know that the robot will one day become President of the United States.

The First Robot President is science fiction with a healthy dose of political satire, making fun of Democrats and Republicans in equal measure. The author has divided the novel into four sections: Wife and Mother, The Path to the White House, The Oval Office, and Epilogue. He has also written an afterword, and his friend and former colleague Arvind Patel has designed a flow-chart and five tables to accompany it.

The First Robot President is at once humorous and profound, addressing a number of social and economic issues in an entertaining narrative. Recipient of the Gold prize for humor in the Reader Views' 2020-2021 Reviewer's Choice Awards.
