A Gentleman Raises His Glass teaches how to prepare a toast for virtually any occasion - be it a wedding, a celebratory dinner, or any social celebration where a tribute would be welcome. It is a book that is concise, affordable, and attractively packaged.

A Gentleman Raises His Glass also tells the history of the toast, gives examples of the wrong thing to say, and contains more than 50 aphorisms on toasting:
A gentleman knows that, unless he is seated in a crowded, public restaurant, he must stand to deliver a toast.When a gentleman makes a toast, he makes it directly to his guest of honor, not to the table at large.A gentleman knows that a toast, even at a bachelor's dinner, is still intended to be a tribute-not an embarrassment.
