Robert's Rules of Order Online

"The application of parliamentary law is the best method yet devised to enable assemblies of any size, with due regard for every member’s opinion, to arrive at the general will on the maximum number of questions of varying complexity in a minimum amount of time and under all kinds of internal climate ranging from total harmony to hardened or impassioned division of opinion."
Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised [RONR (10th ed.), Introduction, p. xlviii]

Whether we agree or not, probably essential reading for anyone who may be leading meetings involving: agendas, minutes, discussion, commentary.
