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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
There are lots of books with Robert's Rules in the title. However, most of these books are earlier editions of Robert's or knock-offs. If you're supposed to follow the "latest edition" of Robert's, this is your book--Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised (11th Edition), published in 2011. Each new edition brings changes to procedure. The latest has 120. Some readers find the manual too daunting and complex at first glance, but there are excellent guides to Robert's. I'm partial to two: The Complete Idiot's Guide to Parliamentary Procedure Fast-Track and Notes and Comments on Robert's Rules, Fourth Edition. While Robert's Rules may not seem like a "let's cozy up with a book" kind of read, the book is a wonderful resource for anyone who has to spend time in meetings. And this newest edition is essential for groups that follow (or at least claim to follow) Robert's.
Very useful if you are on a Board of Directors and have annual meetings.
This book has helped me understand how to conduct a proper meeting and participate like a pro. Being a board member for a local society this book has helped me gain some confidence and sound more professional now at the meetings. I would recommend this book.
