About the Author
Sarah Corbin Robert was the daughter-in-law of the original author and the trustee of Robert's Rules of Order, Revised. She headed the authorship team that produced the most extensive general revision of the work. Henry M. Robert III is the grandson of General Henry M. Robert and has served as president of the Maryland Association of Parliamentarians and as parliamentarian for the National Association of Parliamentarians (NAP). William J. Evans , a retired attorney, was president of NAP from 1979 to 1981 and has also served as its parliamentarian. Daniel H. Honemann is an attorney in Maryland and a past president of the Maryland Association of Parliamentarians. Thomas J. Balch is a lobbyist and legislative analyst based in Washington, DC, who also served as parliamentarian for NAP.
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.

The contents did meet my expectations! The rules with examples and tables are covered very well.
I would recommend this book to anyone involved in the running of meetings.
The only con would be that it is not available in electronic format. If the book was published as an electronic version coupled with a good search engine, it would make the purchase and invaluable resource to many who would not otherwise purchase the book.
It's not really a book that one reads for pleasure but a book that has served people well for many many years.
Boards of Directors or formal committees, but! This new edition has used such small print that it renders
the book just about useless. As well the font is not reader-friendly and the text is too lightly imprinted for comfortable use. I had to wear reading glasses and use a magnifying glass in my attempts
to use this edition. I finally returned the book for a refund.
The content is wonderful.
