This book enabled me to chair a national organization with little previous experience.
It is much easier to understand than other books on Roberts rules of order that I have read and acts as a quick reference when questions of procedure come up during a meeting.
I highly recommend it to any member of a group which holds meetings using parliamentary procedure.
I particularly recommend it to anyone who has to chair such meetings.

Format: Paperback
There are two kinds of reference books, the kind that has a complete discussion on every question you can think of on a particular subject, and the kind in which you can actually find what you're looking for right now.
This work is one of the latter. It is no substitute for Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised, the truly definitive work on the subject, which belongs in the library of every PTA president, budding politician, or C-SPAN junkie. But once you've done your homework and understand the principles of parliamentary procedure, it is Garfield Jones' book, not Henry Robert's, that you bring with you to every meeting (or wish you had.)
Thin enough (just 90 pages) to get lost under your agenda, the book is uniquely suited to be used, in real time, in the meeting, in the trenches.
It is one of the most cleverly designed tools I've seen, planned from the ground up, or rather from the middle out, to live up to its "at-a-glance" title. Open it to the center staple, and you'll be looking at the index--two short (literally half height) pages. Above them stand two ranks of staggered-length pages that serve as a table of the various motions, and their order of precedence from the normal order of business, main motions, up through amendment, referring to committee, calling the question, tabling, points of order, adjournment--all visible at once.
The cut pages serve as index tabs, so you can instantly flip to the reference page for that motion. (When you do, motions of lower rank, now out of order, are hidden, while those of higher rank remain visible above.)
A glance at the reference page shows a table of rules pertaining to that particular motion: does it require a second, allow for debate, need a simple majority to pass, or a two-thirds vote?

This is the one you want if you are a novice at parliamentary procedure. After experiencing several unruly church conferences I began looking for an easy to use book, this is it. The center of the book indexes all the basic procedures you will need. I compliment the author in making it easy to use and not making the reader drowsy.

Format: Paperback
This is a great reference manual for Robert's Rules of Order. It can be used as a referesher for someone who knows the rules, or as reference for a chairman or committee member needing information on an obscure or rarely used rule. This might not be the best book for someone with no experience at all with Parlimentary procedure though

Format: Paperback
I loved this book growing up, so it's difficult to give it a low rating. But this edition (1990) is just getting too dated.

Parliamentary Procedure at a Glance was clever and creatively designed when first released in 1932. This "New Edition" is from 1990. The latest Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised is the 11th Edition published in 2011. Each new edition brings changes to procedure (the 11th Edition has 120 listed changes, including new procedures and names for motions.) As a result, this edition of Parliamentary Procedure at a Glance is sadly now about three Robert's editions out of date.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The center pages of this little book are worth the book's purchase price all by themselves. Every kind of motion and amendment are listed in their priority, making it extremely easy to untangle the knots that many of us get into when the meeting we are leading suddenly has a flurry of motions. Keep it handy, open it to the center, and you will see at a glance what to do and who is right in their understanding of the way to handle a particular motion.

I was introduced to this book in a parliamentary procedure class - the copyright of my edition is 1971! I have referred to it ever since and given it to many friends and organizations.
