Reviews - What do customers think about Robert's Rules in Plain English: A Readable, Authoritative, Easy-to-Use Guide to Running Meetings, 2nd Edition?

It's a practical guide to Robert's Rules  Mar 12, 2007
This is a nice book for the money. It's easy to read. It has a good layout.
Roberts Rules made easy  Oct 23, 2005
I found the book as represented and easy to read and it has all the simple answers that you might need quickly. Reading the full Roberts Rules of Order revised can take time this makes it easy to pick out the simple explanation and answers. Nice to take to the meetings for quick reference.
Roberts Rules in Plain English  Oct 21, 2005
The book is a decent primer and is certainly more readable than Robert's original book. Of course the original and all of its editions remain an example of very incomprehensible and convoluted language even for its era. However, I have to handle large meetings of very strong-willed, intelligent people, so I found the "Plain English" book not very useful. I need to know the details and complexities of handling important meetings so that I make the right decisions. I will stick with the more sophisticated texts.
Robert's Rules in Plain English  Sep 15, 2005
Was very disappointed. I thought the book would have contained the entire book of Robert's Rules written in language easily understood by all who read it. The book I received was very brief in dealing with situations that arise during a meeting. It dealt with very few situations.
For Meetings this is the Bible  Aug 12, 2005
Ever been in a meeting that seemed like uncontroled chaos? Then get this book and read it to know how to run a meeting properly
