Book Description

September 27, 2011 030682020X 978-0306820205 11th Edition
Robert’s Rules of Order is the book on parliamentary procedure for parliamentarians and anyone involved in an organization, association, club, or group and the authoritative guide to smooth, orderly, and fairly conducted meetings and assemblies. This newly revised edition is the only book on parliamentary procedure to have been updated since 1876 under the continuing program of review established by General Henry M. Robert himself, in cooperation with the official publisher of Robert’s Rules. The eleventh edition has been thoroughly revised to address common inquiries and incorporate new rules, interpretations, and procedures made necessary by the evolution of parliamentary procedure, including new material relating to electronic communication and “electronic meetings.”

As a lawyer and parliamentarian, when I am asked about proper procedure at a meeting, my first question is: What rules do you use? Is there an applicable statute, or bylaws or rules that the organization has adopted? Nine times out of ten, the answer is: "Robert's Rules of Order." Robert's is the most widely used parliamentary manual in the United States.

General Henry M. Robert published the original "Robert's Rules" in 1875 and 1876 and, since the copyright on that edition (and the next few editions) has long since expired, there are numerous unofficial editions on the market. The third edition, published in 1893, is still marketed in paperback by more than one publisher as the "original" Robert's Rules. With the copyright expired, even the name "Robert's" has passed into the public domain, and many imitators have slapped the name "Robert's" on books of parliamentary procedure that bear minimal relation to General Robert's work (much as many dictionaries claim the name "Webster's" without any connection to Noah Webster or the Merriam-Webster brand that carries on his work). This book is the real Robert's, composed by an editorial board appointed by General Robert's heirs (including his descendant Henry III, an eminent parliamentarian in his own right). Now in its 11th edition, published in September 2011, this book "supersedes all previous editions and is intended automatically become the parliamentary authority in organizations whose bylaws prescribe 'Robert's Rules of Order' ... or the like, without specifying a particular edition."

The 11th edition, the first new edition in 11 years, incorporates various issues that the authors have addressed informally since the 10th edition was published in 2000.

First off, I must say that I'm here at Amazon to order "Rules of Order, Newly Revised" (RONR), 11th edition, so I have not yet laid my eager hands on the most current edition of group decision-making sanity. Therefore, the four stars are based on the quality of Edition 10 and the apparency that the missing and duplicate pages situation is handled. God Bless and hats off to Henry M. Roberts. This review is for /authentic/ Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised. I hope to dispel some potential frustration and share some key factors in choosing a parliamentary reference book.


1. A well-written set of By-Laws will refer to a specific edition of Robert's Rules. For example "Meetings shall be conducted according to Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised, 11th Edition." With many knock-off and competing publications out there, having everyone singing from the same exact hymnal can make a HUGE difference. If you have some other reference, you're going to have double difficulty (rightly so) when you try to cite your copy's version of Robert's Rules. It's far better if everyone is using the same edition because it is a basis for agreement. (More later on the importance of agreement.)

2. Many other "Robert's Rules" publications are heavily based on past editions of the Official Robert's Rules that have now passed into the public domain and are available to be shamelessly copied and repackaged as something new. That's fair game under copyright law, but I think it's doing buyers a grave disservice to issue a century-old or decades-old edition as if it were something current. Get the most current edition unless there's a really good reason to get the 10th edition, such as operating under by-laws that have adopted a specific older edition.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed October 21, 2011
By Linda
As a professional parliamentarian I was disappointed when the book was missing approximately 35 pages and in another area of the book a series of pages were repeated. It makes it difficult to use the book for reference purposes when pages are missing!Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised, 11th edition

16 pages in the book were missing, and 16 pages were repeated at another point in the book. That makes it very difficult to use.

1.0 out of 5 stars Without page numbers, Robert's is useless October 1, 2011
By M. Fred
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a review of the Kindle Edition of RONR 11th Edition

I had just bought a Kindle 3G, and Robert's Rules 11th Edition came out a few days later, so I was happy to see I wouldn't have to lug the thick book around with me any more. Wrong. The internal page number references are not linked, and page numbers are not available at all for external reference. There is, however, an index, which references page numbers that _are_ linked, so there's some progress being made. This book depends more on page numbers for reference than any other book I'm familiar with. It also uses line numbers occasionally, as do most legal documents, but I'd be happy with page numbers for now.

I did find out from Amazon product support that:

Page numbers are available in many but not all Kindle books. Kindle books that include page numbers will list "Page Numbers Source ISBN (the print book identification number)" under "Product Details" on the detail page at To see page numbers for Kindle books, your Kindle must connect to a Wi-Fi or 3G network after the book has been downloaded.
