Since Robert's Rules of Order first was published in 1896, it's been the means to orderly, smooth, and fairly conducted meetings. This ninth edition of the famous manual of parliamentary procedure includes everything from the first edition, but all of the information is clarified, cross-referenced, and carefully indexed. "Where there is no law, but every man does what is right in his own eyes, there is the least of real liberty," said General Henry M. Robert, and his gift of order is as indispensable now as it was a century ago.
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.
