    Helpful, but expected more specific information

    Helpful. I was searching for something that ran through a whole meeting to demonstrate how motions are done, what needs to be voted on and what doesn't, etc. I was looking for something more cut and dry. This is useful for bigger more corporate meetings than the type of meetings I have.

    Not an Appropriate Title

    This is more of a “how to” book and deals more with the creation of an entity.

    Highly appreciated!!

    Have you listened to any of Mike Norgaard’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This summary not only updates information to the most current level but also manages to synthesize important points in entertaining and useful manner. Nothing to compare of

    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    This book was written for executives, organizers, parliamentarians, and other organizations to easily understand the fundamentals of Robert's Rules of Order and put them into action.

    Any additional comments?

    Robert's Rules is a standard work that anyone who is involved with any type of deliberative organization must be familiar with. One thing I did find strange with this book was that there was no author or executive editor listed. If there was, I would be happy to commend them.The book makes plain that Robert's Rules themselves are intended to help users avoid wasting time. As a person who has been caught up in many long, drawn-out and useless meetings, I appreciated this insight.

    Robert's Rules of Order.....great briefcase book!

    An excellent and detailed guide. I only found one instance not covered by it: What does it take to rescind a previous motion requiring a two thirds vote to pass? The requirements in the book only speak about a motion being rescinded by a two thirds vote if it was not in the agenda of the meeting; but requiring only a majority vote if it was in the agenda of the meeting. Otherwise, this book covers everything and is an essential guide to parliamentary proceedings. This is the book that is a must have for your library. Other parliamentary procedure books make it easy to understand, but this is foundation book. It is small enough to travel with you and very easy to listen. You don't really need any "quick find" or "condensed" versions.

    Know everything about robert's rules

    What did you like best about this story?

    It talks deeply about motions and having roles and responsibilities for each persons.

    Any additional comments?

    Simply it's about forming an organization strategically and effectively. Many people think this concept is easy but there's so many moving parts to it that's it's better having a guide to make sure you cover all your bases. This audiobook just does that and I recommend to any group of people wanting to learn the effectiveness of robert's rules.

    Clear and Simple

    The best part about this is how easy it is to understand. Robert's Rules of Order is not the most simple or easy to understand book, however this guide uses plain language to make understanding the rules and knowing how to use them very easy, even for those who are not particularly familiar with parliamentary or formal language.

    very easy to understand. he had great pacing as well.

    Any additional comments?

    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.
