Equal parts deadly boring and fascinating. I found the sample situations kind of hilarious, despite the social class assumptions (tennis club, anyone?) All in all, a useful intro to what seems to be a sort of Dungeons-and-Dragons approach to keeping meetings from getting out of hand, minus the dice. To really use RR, though, I'd probably need to hire a tutor.

Look, it's not like I read Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised In Brief because I thought it was going to be scintillating prose, so we'll dispense with any commentary about whether it was enjoyable to read. It wasn't. But if you agree to chair a debate two days in advance, reading this little book certainly beats the hell out of trying to read all of the full-length version.

This little volume is more comprehensive than a cheat sheet, contains some useful instructions for officers as well as participants, and is a quick, easy, accessible overview of the basics of debating and voting on stuff via parliamentary procedure. Also, despite not being Robert's Rules itself, it still has the cute little J.R.R. Tolkien-looking logo on it, which I am far too amused by. ...more

This is hardly something you would choose to read for fun. However, if you have any role in any sort of meeting that uses Robert's Rules of Order, start with this and realize just how simple, and at times complicated, these meetings can be. But, you should read this first and foremost for empowerment. Once you've figured out the mechanics of parliamentary procedure, then you can move on to the fun stuff--making change.

The authors insist throughout that this is meant only as a companion piece and reference to the bunker buster itself, Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised (11th edition). I don't think I ever want to attend the sort of meeting where this text isn't sufficient, but I'm known to be a coward.

Everyone should read this book. Very helpful in all of the ways.

A good reference for my purposes -- enough information, but not too much to boggle the mind . . .

I have been to enough meetings that are governed by Robert's Rules that I probably know more than I think. Then again, maybe this is the perfect time to actually read the rules.

Rules of procedure. For any organized group, especially for Parliament.

An excellent primer on Robert's Rules, really handy and clearly written for those without time or access to the full set (800+ pages!).

A good reference point for easy-to-find items. It was purchased for my husband's use as commander of the local DAV.

RONR(ib) is a useful tool in the fight against disorganized meetings. clear and concise.

This book is a good basic reference tool for defining personal conduct as an active participant in public and private meetings, debates, delegate sessions and other events with structured protocol.

I attended a conference a week ago. During it, some parliamentary procedures were reviewed. That kindled an interest in delving into Robert's Rules.

This book was okay. It is an abbreviated version and constantly states it is not to be used as an authority for meetings. It makes me wish I had purchased the unabridged version.

It was a quick read. Most of it will be familiar to anyone who has worked in a business environment. Even so, there is clarification to be found here.

The book served its purpose, but I am left wanting. ...more

Handy reference on running meetings

In conference rooms and assembly halls around the world, people often lead and participate in meetings according to the processes detailed in Robert’s Rules of Order. The people at most sessions, however, need only about 20% of the rules and guidelines in the original book. That’s why Henry M. Robert III, William J. Evans, Daniel H. Honemann and Thomas J. Balch abbreviated the encyclopedic master text into this handy, easier-to-use version, focusing on the Handy reference on running meetings

Balch abbreviated the encyclopedic master text into this handy, easier-to-use version, focusing on the more up-to-date rules and uses. They cover all the basics, including how to introduce motions, participate in debates and take votes. The book also describes the jobs of the officers and board members, as well as providing templates, charts and examples of what to say and do to run meetings smoothly and fairly. Although the rules may be old-fashioned in some settings, they remain useful meeting management guidelines, particularly in forums where accountability matters. Whether you have to direct a corporate board or run a charity committee, getAbstract recommends this concise reference book. ...more

Outstanding guide (197 pages) for anyone involved in organizational meetings. The format makes it easy to get quick answers to questions and refers often to the complete version (643 pages).

Want to gain a minimum viable understanding of Robert's Rules without actually slogging through the 800 pages of the canonical text? Bingo.

Great entry level book for beginners. It gets the reader started on the same style and language of the not so brief version of RONR. Anyone who attends any meetings of any kind should read this.

This a really straight-forward easily referenceable book on parliamentary procedure. Something I wish I read sooner and an essential text for political/government nerds.

Everything it says that it is. Clear and concise that helps figure out 80% of all the cases of Robert's Rules. The bigger 600 page book is good as a reference, but if you're looking to master just the basics of Robert's Rules, this is your go to.

This is a good informal introduction to Parliamentary Procedure. It is an abridgement of Robert's Rules of Order, which although good is not quite as easy to read as is this. The main reason it is useful is because RONR certainly follows Pareto's Law, 80% of the book is only used 20% of the time, and this book is the 20% of the larger volume that is mainly used.
