I was 35 and had never delivered a formal toast before being best man in a wedding in September 2007. I paid only $1.99 for this book but it would have been well-worth the cover price. The book is a simple how-to guide for writing a toast.
The book is 118 pages long, the pages are small, and for a basic toast you only need to read about half of the book. The second half of the book is for special situations (toasts for children, second weddings, post-elopement celebrations, etc.).
The best part was the Toast Questionnaire in Chapter 3. Answering those twelve questions got me started and provided the raw material that became a successful toast two weeks later.
I also purchased and read Wedding Toasts Made Easy by Tom Halibeck, and I recommend that book too.

I heard Sharon Naylor talk about wedding toasts on NPR, and she said she had plenty of samples in this book. Not only are there tons of toast samples, there are also tons of great quotes to start or end your speech, and she even has a chart on saying 'Cheers' in different languages! This book is terrific! "It's the words that make the wedding," Naylor says, and my fiance and I are going to use this book to propose some great toasts to our parents at the rehearsal dinner too. What a find this book is!
