Reviews - What do customers think about 21st Century Robert's Rules of Order?

Does not conform to Robert's Rules  Apr 28, 2003
Beware: This book, besides having typographical errors and no index, does not conform at all (!) to the current edition of Robert's Rules (namely "Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised" tenth edtion, the edition recognized by parliamentarians). The editor or author has added too much mis-information and has mis-defined too many terms for this book to be considered a "condensation" or "summary" of the motions, procedures and terminology of Robert's Rules of Order, of any edition. If your bylaws say that its official parliamentary authority is (some edition of) Robert's Rules of Order, then be aware that "21st Century..." is way too different from Robert's Rules to be useful as a gentle introduction. Instead, the book will lead you to practices that contradict the procedures in Robert's Rules of Order. I would not have minded a book that condenses the older (public domain) editions, and thus LEAVES OUT detail too rarely used, but to ADD new rules and new procedures that contradict Robert's Rules of Order is deceptive, and serves to fool the innocent reader who thinks he is reading a simple introductory text to the real thing. So, beware that the procedures in "21st Century" are the author's or editor's opinions, and not parliamentary law as described in any edition of Robert's Rules. In closing, in my opinion, there are too many bad definitions and too many new (i.e., unsupported) procedures to use the name "Robert's Rules" in its title. If you are looking for an easy-reading paperback that truly conforms to Robert's Rules, without including other non-Robert (contradictory) procedures, "This ain't it, folks!"
Not designed for all groups, more for corporate use  Sep 2, 2001
I advise a large, successful student government in Florida. I bought a copy of this book for each of my officers without really reading it, and wish I had. While it is good and helpful for explaining the standard rules of order, it doesn't always apply to a setting such as ours. Instead, it is much more useful for board meetings, and corporate business events. It takes a lot of interpretation and ignoring of some items for our use of the book.

Still, it does explain many things of use for all organizations, so if you need something to use, it will work, just be cautious about who you order it for.

Robert's Rules of Order  Feb 1, 2000
This book was very helpful for me. It kept the meetings in order when in the past the meetings would get out of order. Other People in the meeting now understand the importance of keeping the meetings in order.
Good reference book.  Dec 28, 1999
New to the Rules of Order I found the book helpful and useful as a quick reference.
Best of three I read for small volunteer Boards of Directors  Sep 13, 1999
This is more conprehensive than 'Roberts Rules in Plain English' and easier to read than the classic. It is the only one I found that addressed procedures for small Board meetings with less than 12 people. It did have some typos in it, which I hope will be corrected in the next edition.
