5.0 out of 5 stars User-friendly meeting guide April 14, 2004
Format:Paperback
This has to be the most user-friendly book I've seen, starting with the inside of the front cover. It says, "If you only have 30 minutes" then read certain chapters.
Somehow these experts figured out what the rest of us would need to know and how we would be looking for it. Maybe they had a panel of non-experts to critique.
There are chapters detailing what the words are that you use to make something happen and how to use those words. Best of all, everywhere you look there are copious examples.
In the back are succinct tables of those same words and there is also a chapter on how to find the completely complete information on the topic in the big "Robert's" book
Most of the book is concerned with what you need to know as a member of the group. There are separate chapters for an officer of the group, which contain the things that most of us don't need to know.
This is not a book you'd save for a winter evening curled up in front of the fireplace. It's to tell you all sorts of things you'd really rather not have to know, but that you really need to know. I've already decided that mine is mine alone. Nobody is going to borrow it because it would never come back to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should read the unabridged version .... September 25, 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
... but let's be realistic about it; most people won't. For the 95% of us who just want our PTA, Condo Association, or other group to run an efficient meeting, this is the book to read. It tells you the most important parts about Robert's Rules -- the stuff that comes up regularly at meetings. I'm on several non-profit boards, and this is the most useful book on running meetings I have found.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this one first November 24, 2004
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Even though I have both the "in Brief" and the unabridged editions, it is only the "in Brief" edition that I take with me to my meetings. I recommend that you buy and read the "in Brief" edition first.

This book was good as a way to get started in becoming familiar with Robert's Rules. However, a better introductory guide is Robert's Rules in Plain English. If you are new to Robert's Rules, my suggestion is get the Plain English book and read it cover to cover. It's short and will tell you 95% of what you'll probably need to know. If you need any further details, then you should move on to the full version of Robert's Rules. In my opinion, this book (...In Brief) is a little more dry and with lower quality examples than "Plain English."

4.0 out of 5 stars Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised in Brief October 9, 2005
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The paper binding and the brevity of the book content produce a light weight, easy to carry reference tool. At times, the volume is too brief, and I need to refer to the full volume I keep at home.

I bought five copies of this book to give to the elder board at our church. It is helping us to conduct our meetings in a more organized fashion. I highly recommend this book for anyone wishing to brush up on their parliamentary procedure.
