America Standing Strong
Available in E-book, Paperback, Audiobook & Hardcover.
FROM KIRKUS REVIEWS:
“…This book calls for a return to “common sense, reason, and compromise.” Emery’s guide focuses on the major themes… Black Lives Matter protests, Covid-19, and the January 6 insurrection (and) also examines broader questions about America’s future, from changing demographics and social media to “the loss of civility” and threats to democracy. With a career as a director and producer of feature length films, documentaries, and television shows, as well as postretirement publication of SF thrillers, Emery is a skilled storyteller with a gripping writing style that effectively distills the social, cultural, and political milieu of the last six years into less than 300 pages. A well-argued… case for political and social healing in the U.S. - Kirkus Reviews.
“I am both astounded and awed by the time, effort and thought—as well as the courage—of this author to bring to light the many serious problems and issues all people are facing, not just Americans… With quotes from revered leaders, each a powerful voice in their field, we learn there are things we can do. But first, our thinking must reflect the principles of democracy, peace, and empathy for others regardless of race, creed, color, and financial standing in the universe. Only when we see all others worthy of respect and compassion can we hope to achieve it for ourselves… Truly a ten-star read and an awakening, even if unwanted, for all of us.” International Review of Books.
“This book is a worthy undertaking that will appeal to anyone that is willing to listen without bias. America Standing Strong presents compelling evidence that has the potential to change political discourse in the U.S. Whether you pick up this book up to get a better understanding of the contemporary issues America faces, or because you want to find new solutions to those problems, this is a book that will surely get people talking.” 5-Stars – Literary Titan.

“One could call this a work of investigative journalism; however, I found the book to go beyond investigative, but a primer for action. Mr. Emery has put forth a plea for action, positive action muchly needed for a return to decency, truthfulness, and morality… What bed will we lie in and who will make that decision if we let the status quo prevail?” 5-Stars - S.J. Hunter.
There is so much information in this book for each and every one of us. What I thoroughly enjoyed about the author taking the readers on this journey is the intellect and openness from which all the facts are approached. I truly feel as time goes on this book will stand as a moment of history and its effects on us as a nation. 4/5 Stars – C. J. Wills – The Authors Spot Reviews.
“Robert J. Emery has written a book that inspired me. The issues are complex but the intent and presentation are simple. America: Standing Strong is fact-filled, often entertaining, and left me feeling hopeful. I highly recommend it.” 5-stars - Ana Manwaring, author of the JadeAnne Stone Mexico Adventures.
“Through extensive research, the author has skillfully brought together the wisdom and knowledge of those who came before us and those still with us…
America: Standing Strong is truly a guide and eye-opener of what went wrong and went in recent years and how we can keep our country strong going forward. I highly recommend this book to everyone.” 5- stars -JLfla.
“A provocative read that laces thoughtful analysis, opinion, facts, and the historical written word, to illuminate the toxic stagnation of progress in our lives, our country, and towards our planet. The Author shows us how we have unwittingly allowed ourselves to become subjugated by the vices of the few and the powerful. That said, maybe this is exactly what the Author intended, and he wants us really pissed off with the status quo!” 5-stars - SALLYP.
“The Author skillfully assembled respected voices who present indisputable facts and truth in plain English. This book is not about the past but our future. Regardless of race, religion, age, or politics, this is an eye-opening, tell-all, must-read truth-revealer that everyone should read.” 5-stars – PAGEAST
The Autopsy of Planet Earth.
Available in e-Book and Paperback
“This two-volume sci-fi thriller is reminiscent of classic science fiction stories combined with the modern cinematic suspense of political thrillers… I really enjoyed how there were moments where I didn’t know where the fiction in the science ended and where real life began… readers will be able to easily go from one book to the next without missing a beat… The Autopsy of Planet Earth is a gripping and stimulating science fiction duology that fans of suspenseful alien arrival stories will certainly enjoy.” 5-stars - Literary Titan Reviews.
