Publisher's Summary

Robert's Rules of Order, Made Simple
For well over a century, from the hallowed halls of government to the executive boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies to the meeting halls of labor unions, Robert's Rules of Order has been the how-to authority on applying organizational intelligence to deliberative assemblies. When properly utilized, Robert's Rules ensure that the best ideas, not just the loudest, are always allowed to surface. They ensure that problems identified are not forgotten but resolved, and responsibilities are always clearly defined and never breached without consequence.
The problem is that understanding the intricacies of this watershed 19th-century para-parliamentary framework can be a tedious task. But now, thanks to ClydeBank Business, it doesn't have to be.
The Robert's Rules QuickStart Guide presents organizers, hosts, presidents, chairmen (and chairwomen), and any other would-be parliamentarians with a modernized, easy-to-understand, and essential breakdown of Robert's Rules of Order.
This is the perfect book for the business manager who's tired of wasting time during meetings or the club member who was recently elected president and is now charged with presiding over the club's meetings. With Robert's Rules QuickStart Guide, ClydeBank Business delivers time-tested wisdom in a way that's simplified and accessible for the everyday listener.
You'll learn about:

Drafting & approving bylaws
Creating & utilizing committees
The different types of motions & how to make them
Proper voting methods
Nominating & electing officers
And much, much more

Great Short Listen for Business, Government, Etc.

This was a great explanation of Robert's Rules of Order, including it's history and origins. There were practical explanations of how it is used, why it is used, and how to start using it in your organization.
If you are planning to start a community organization, are planning a career in business management, are government employee, or are a part of a student organization at a university, this will definitely be of benefit to you.
Narration was pretty good as well.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author, publisher, or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review. I was NOT required to write a positive review and this reflects my honest opinion of the work.

Good Information

This listen is a good choice if you are starting up a company, board, or new department within an existing organization. It details step by step how to formalize the charter, bylaws, and choose officers so the group is structured for successful decision making and to avoid on the fly rule changing or power seizure.

To be honest, it wasn't what I was expecting. I was thinking it would be a how to guide for running meetings but this information is invaluable for the reasons I stated above.

Peter Bierma does a decent reading of the material.

I received this audiobook from Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.
