    Robert's Rules of Order

    This is essential reference material for those who want the deefinitive guide to conducting a meeting. It is a time honored guide that takes the mystery out of conducting a business meeting. Our rules for speaking, presenting motions, etc. have become lax. As a result, meeting are sloppy and without order. Use this brif guide to assist you.

    more from this reviewer

    for international organisms

    My main interest when I bought this book is to figure out how international organism and its general assemblies (like United Nations, OAS, IADB...)work.
    Although it is a synopsis of tha unabridged edition, is a good start for those studies.

    I Also Recommend:

    Informative as a resource

    Not an easy book to read due to the difficult topic. Might be more useful to those with some knowledge and background in RRO, but for a novice like me it was difficult to get through and understand.
