Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Helpful to anyone who ever expects to be called on to give a toast.” —Library Journal
Library Journal
This is a book that will be helpful to anyone who ever expects to be called on to give a toast. It begins with a brief introductory history of toasts and toasting, pointing out that the custom of drinking to the health and prosperity of another is an ancient one. The book is arranged by broad topics from age (``May you enter Heaven late'') to weddings (``May you grow old on one pillow'') to friendship (``Here's to a friend. He knows you well and likes you just the same.''). Some of the quotes are from literature or famous people, but there are many old anonymous ones, too. Sections on effective toasting, odd customs, and the like are also included. Libraries needing to expand their quotations collections might want to buy this volume.-- Rebecca Wondriska, Trinity Coll. Lib., Hartford, Ct.

A useful reference. May all dinner speeches be as succinct as "Good drink, good meat, good God, let's eat." Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
