There are jokes, quotations, sample speeches already written and suggestions of how to perfect public speaking skills.
I bought this for my dad who is v. v. nervous about his speech and he found the book great.
This little book helped me achieve that. It is as short as the speech it recommended I should make. Having read it in a couple of hours I honed in on the elements of a 5-minute address that I felt would suit my style. That left out the hundreds of corny jokes it suggested and I concentrated instead on the excellent dateline and quotation hooks to hold my words together.
Having then written down my 700 words and broken them into learnable chunks as suggested, I practiced and practiced until I was word perfect enough to allow myself to adlib just a tiny bit.
After the event I was congratulated by more people than I could have imagined.
If you need to make a wedding speech that goes down a treat then this small tome is well worth the few quid it costs to buy.
