5.0 out of 5 stars Vast anthology of Toasts May 14 2000
By Jordan R - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
1 of the 3 books devoted exclusively to Toasts, this book contains the biggest anthology of Toasts of the the 3. Quite an enjoyable read, too bad it's out of print - the record that came with this book is now on CD on the Rounder label (same title as the book).
