This is a book for beginners on how to find their voice when asked to do a speech or toast at a wedding. This is also a very reading as the author has a great sense of humor. The back of the book is full of funny things to say at someone's wedding (or should I say ways to not get invited to toast at the next wedding?) and these will make you laugh out loud. Things like: "the wedding license is very valuable, so keep it in a safe. It's needed if you ever plan to get a divorce." (p. 83).
