Washington DC, USA – November 4, 2020 – At a time when the world has faced one of the deadliest pandemics, civil unrest, and lockdowns, there have been numerous consequences. Many people have lost their lives at the height of it, both those who serve as first responders and civilians.

This is Rodriguez’s fourth book. Other books include Dead Soldier: A Story of the Living, We Are Human Too: Thin Blueline Stories from DC, Race Against Your Alarm Clock,” and Is Mommy a Superhero? that he co-wrote with his wife Diana Rodriguez. “According to Rodriguez, “To protect and serve always comes first. As a police officer, my goal is to keep everyone safe. When a life-threatening situation arrives, a resolution must be brought swiftly to protect all.”

The Hardest Language, published by Absolute Author Publishing House on October 26, 2020, is available in paperback and eBook on Amazon.com. “This book is remarkable as it provides real solutions for real situations,” says Dr. Melissa Caudle, CEO of Absolute Author Publishing House, who edited the book. “The information in this book is extremely valuable, and I can see how lives could be saved if the proven tactics presented by Rodriguez are utilized, especially by those who protect and serve our communities.”


As a police officer, when Carmelo Rodriguez was called to the scene where someone may be attempting to commit suicide, faced with having to talk somebody down from dealing with homicidal tendencies, a riot, or even having to turn a contact around who may want to be taken down by police officers, he has to make a quick life or death decision. His mind assesses the situation, and he responds based on his knowledge, experience, and training. Often, he ends up dealing with individuals who require an understanding of whatever street language they used to diffuse a situation. In the book, The Hardest Language, Rodriguez breakdowns the most effective methods of leveraging and negotiating out of these life-changing situations with a positive outcome with the goal to always serve and protect. The reader will learn how to effectively communicate in highly intensive and chaotic environments, whether it involves policing, business, or even in a family crisis; the reader will acquire effective methods to take control and cope with a serious or life-threatening crisis keeping everyone safe.
