Synopses & Reviews
From the acknowledged "roastmasters" of all time comes the quintessential handbook for public speakers at any occasion, featuring the best one-liners, put-downs, anecdotes and jokes on every conceivable subject.
This giant compendium is organized both by occasion (Bar Mitzvah, 40th Birthday, Sales Presentation) and by subject, everything from Aging to Technology. Featuring words from an array of smart-mouthed celebrities including Dean Martin, Jerry Seinfeld, Don Rickles, George Burns, Ellen DeGeneres and Walter Matthau, it includes tips and tried-and-true techniques for writing and delivering smart, funny, moving and motivational toasts, roasts and speeches. It's the perfect inspiration for wedding toasts, office parties, corporate speeches--or even just spicing up cocktail party small talk. The jokes alone make it a must-have; the advice makes it the public speaker's bible.
