    Originally by Alice Sturgis, The Standard Code of Parliamentary

    Originally by Alice Sturgis, The Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure has for years served as a shorter, simpler alternative to Robert's Rules of Order.  While not nearly used as much as Robert's Rules, the book is the parliamentary manual for numerous groups, including many organizations of physicians and dentists.  The book is excellent, but I can't give it a higher rating in that this 4th Edition (2001) is getting fairly old and is unlikely to be updated.  A separate work that may be worth a look, the American Institute of Parliamentarians Standard Code of Parliamentary Procedure, was published in 2012.  While not a director successor to The Standard Code, the new book is quite similar and based on the principles of Sturgis.
