Robert's Rules of Order.....great briefcase book! May 8, 2008
I bought this book because I had used it previously in my employment years ago. It's a great argument solver, and there are no questions asked when you "quote" from the book. Haven't found anything it doesn't solve if you are willing to check it out.
Roberts Rules... Rules May 1, 2008
An updated version of the classic way in which to run any disorganized meeting.
This will help you get organized, but be advised, there is a lot of nuance to parlimentary procedure that you probably don't need for your local rotary club meeting.
If you are intereted in parlimentary procedure, or need a lot of detail this book is great.
If you are looking for a quick read to get your group organized, you might want to use "Robert's Rules in Plain English" as a quick-read, Cliff Notes-style companion.
Roberts Rules Okay Apr 29, 2008
Its good, but a little confusing for a newbie to parlimartry procedure. There seem to be a couple of references to tables that I've not located yet.
A Must for the Leader Apr 23, 2008
I was elected board member of an organization and then realized I had to live up to my word.
This book will have you going through those board meeting formalities like a seasoned pro.
There is a short version of this book that I highly recommend if you are not the type that likes to read, and it will get you through everything just fine too.
Excellent Version of Rules Mar 10, 2008
This volume is the full easy to research version of Robert's Rules when being precise is important. However, it is more than is needed for smaller organizations so, immediately after I received this, I ordered Robert's Rules of Order newly revised In Brief and it covers anything I need at this time.
