When 19th-century army engineering officer Henry Robert was asked to preside over a church meeting, he realized he didnít know how. This experience and subsequent events led him to compile a standardized book of parliamentary procedure. This edition closely follows Robertís guide while incorporating updates and appendices that make it practical for use today.
This is indeed an almost verbatim recording of the reference book that virtually all deliberative bodies use to maintain order at meetings. The dry and technical writing is what you'd expect from such a manual and, all in all, it's very understandable, especially as narrated by the enthusiastic and fresh sounding Meza. But it will be difficult to use as a reference audio--how can you access the section you need without a written table of contents? Aspiring Robert's Rules experts would be aided by such a menu, and perhaps by an introduction or rationale for each type of rule, in addition to the rules themselves.
