At first glance, Toasts may seem like a cheeky, half-hearted attempt to be the perfect coffee table book, but once I popped it open and glanced it over, I was surprised by how inspirational and motivational it was. This book has the perfect ideas for any occasion. Whether you're nervous about giving a toast at a wedding or if you have a few special words for your son or daughter on their graduation, this is an excellent resource for any ceremony.

Toasts truly does have words for every occasion. Ranging from inspirational, to heartfelt, to humorous, it speaks to friends, family, graduates, children--the lot. The book is organized by event (in alphabetical order except for holidays, which are listed in chronological order) which makes it easy to sift through, and simple to find what you are looking for. A delight to read, it will look pretty on a coffee table and really earn its keep, be it for your personal use during special occasions or passed around family during the holidays.

The best guide for any occasion! Toasts is filed with inspirational quotes on friendship to creativity. I find myself flipping through this book any time I need to write up a letter or- ironically enough- give a toast. Trying to find the words you need for any occasion is tough, but with this book you will never be at a loss for words again. From Anniversaries to Weddings, goodbyes to good graces, Toasts is there to lend a hand in the formation of your own beautiful quotes and memorable lines. For just little nuggets to inspire your own words, Toasts is there to get your creative juices flowing. I love this book and will continue to use it for many events I may have down the line.

Toasts is perfect for this time of year and will come in handy so that you won’t be stuck when someone asks you to share some inspiring words during holiday gatherings. It is a great reference for any milestone where one needs to raise a glass. Not only does it contain sayings that are famous, but it is filled with many original toasts written just for this book.

This is THE BEST book on the subject- EVER! Like many others, I am invited to weddings, anniversaries and occasions where it really does matter  what you say. Several books I have looked at just have the same old quotes over and over again. This book does NOT and has marvelously original sayings. Three cheers to Nancy Ling and June Cotner for a really great book. My favorite aspect is the etiquette guide. Invaluable!
