I loved this book growing up, so it's difficult to give it a low rating. But this edition (1990) is just getting too dated.

Parliamentary Procedure at a Glance was clever and creatively designed when first released in 1932. This "New Edition" is from 1990. The latest Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised is the 11th Edition published in 2011. Each new edition brings changes to procedure (the 11th Edition has 120 listed changes, including new procedures and names for motions.) As a result, this edition of Parliamentary Procedure at a Glance is sadly now about three Robert's editions out of date. ( )
