HASH(0x9249ff0c) out of 5 stars Short, Simple, and Easy to Use for Beginners 26 April 2000
By James Schoonmaker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a short, easy-to-use and understand book about parliamentary procedure. It's well laid out, and the beginning of the book has a good explanation of how and why parliamentary procedure works. It was written with beginners in mind. The order of precedence for motions is painstakingly and clearly laid out for the reader, as well as an explanation of why one motion takes precedence over another. Explanations of exactly what a motion does and an example of its use are included as well. Chapters are also included explaining the responsibilities of the chair, secretary, and treasurer, as well as a guide to setting agendas. That said, this is not, nor was it intended to be, a comprehensive guide to parliamentary procedure. For small or somewhat informal meeting, this book is all you need. For a large, formal group with professional officers, however, a full copy of Robert's Rules is recommended. This book is a great intro to parliamentary procedure, and is all you need to run most meetings. Even with larger groups, this is a wonderful book to keep at your elbow at meetings to use as a reference.

HASH(0x927db5b8) out of 5 stars Clear and concise 2 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Our volunteer fire company decided to follow Robert's Rules a couple of years ago. Unfortunately the President quit and took the only copy with him. I ordered this book not because I run the meeting, but so I (as Treasurer) can help the new President and trustees in following the rules that we agreed to.
Although a relatively small paperback, it packs a lot of information. As it states, this book develops the overall concepts and specific procedures for running a meeting effectively and efficiently. It may take more than one reading to really get a handle on the how and why of ranking of motions, etc., but after doing so, I will certainly be able to assist the presiding officer of our meetings.
While our organization will certainly be buying the unabridged version of Robert's Rules, I will be recommending we also purchase several copies of the Plain English version for use at meetings.

HASH(0x925a4d50) out of 5 stars Good Introductory Text 23 Oct. 1999
By Wilson Chang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book was written in simple English and easy to understand and a good introductory text to parliamentary procedure. Since it is an introductory book, one may not find the information or details required on some topics. After reading this book, if you want for more information, then go and buy Roberts' Rules of Order Newly Revised (9th Edition, 1990), the source of this book.

HASH(0x924a42c4) out of 5 stars A Great Beginners Book 31 May 2001
By speak04 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is amazing for younger people who are starting out learning parliamentary procedure. I am involved in 4-H, and in our county, all officers of 4-H clubs are required to learn parliamentary procedure. I am going to incorporate this book into their training. It is very simple to read, very easy to understand, and the examples are concise and relevent. I would not recommend this book for someone who is older and is involved in serious meetings that require a more in depth knowledge of Robert's Rules, but it works perfectly for my purposes, which is to educate people who have never been exposed to this information before. It is an excellent book for the beginner who is interested in the basics without getting bogged down by the hefty rules and vocabulary of Robert's Rules Newly Revised.

HASH(0x924a4390) out of 5 stars A Non-lawyer's Guide to Parli Pro 21 April 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Let's face it: Parliamentary Procedure is nothing but a bunch of hard to understand red tape. This book, however, manages to cut through the boring nonsense and tells you just what you need to know and how to use it. I bought this and the "official" book too, and I find that I read this one almost cover to cover and use it for reference, while the "official" Robert's Rules sit on my bookshelf collecting dust until something really outlandish occurrs in a meeting. Unless you are a lawyer, I'd say this is all you need to survive a meeting in Parli Pro.
