Rising to the Occasion: The Best Toasts for Any Celebration

Author(s): Mr Paul Dickson


Paul Dickson's "Rising to the Occasion" is the ideal pocket reference for any moment when one might need to raise a glass. Organized by category, it contains sayings famous and profound, suitable and sentimental, created by the likes of Groucho Marx, Mark Twain, and Willard Scott alongside equally engaging anonymous toasts. Covering births, weddings, graduations, holidays, and many other events both major and minor, Paul Dickson also provides advice on how to give the best possible toast, and warnings about what one should never do.
