This author is amazing Aug 7, 2000
Mary Devries is the best technical writer of our time! It's amazing to find an author who knows what she is talking about...and be up to date! This book is an asset for anyone's collection!
This book is based on the 1893 edition NOT the 1990 edition Oct 23, 1999
This book is based on the 1893 edition of Robert's Rules of Order and NOT on the latest Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised (9th Edition, 1990).
Since the 1893 edition is no longer controlled by copyright, the author is therefore free to make use of that material.
It is not the latest edition of Robert's Rules of Order, but takes a old work and newly re-written. It still has it value. But reader should be pointed out of this fact and not be mis-leaded.
The 1st part of this book (p. 1-96) teaches the reader how to arrange for a meeting and contains some infomation about using IRC and using computer to help prepare for meeting.
The 2nd part (p. 99-252) contained the 1893 version of Robert's Rules of Order (simplified and updated to today language).
I was surprised to find the following inconsistency:
P. 140 Section 23 TO AMEND "The motion to amend yields to any other subsidiary motion except one to Postpone [a matter] Indefinitely (s. 24).
P. 144 Section 24 TO POSTPONE INDEFINITELY "The motion to Postpone [a subject] Indefinitely yields to any other subsidiary motion except one to Amend (s. 23)"
Such inconsistency should not have happen to a reference work/manual and also to a very important motion a parliamentarian uses. I have yet to read the whole book but hopefully there is none other mistake or inconsitent statement.
Great Aug 27, 1998
This is a great book. I need to know how to use parliamentary procedure and this is a real lifesaver. Thanks again.
