From the Back Cover:

"Entertaining is my main pleasure, my forte," James Beard wrote in the original introduction to this book. Menus For Entertaining, first published in 1965, proved to be one of James Beard's most popular cookbooks. It showed off his flair for putting together innovative meals for a wide range of occasions. Although it is no longer possible to learn from the great master in person, many of the recipes in this book come from his cooking classes. Menus For Entertaining is as close as we can come to being graced with the well-respected chef's presence and expertise.

With chapters titled:
Breakfasts (early and late)
Luncheons (informal, formal, summer)
Dinners (informal, formal, easy to prepare, to prepare in advance, summer)
Buffets (luncheon, dinner, supper)
Entertaining Outdoors (indoor-outdoor cooking, picnics)
Cocktail Parties (large, small)
Celebrations
Basic Recipes
A Guide to Wines
A Guide to Aperitifs
A Guide to Liqueurs

Menus For Entertaining is truly the only book you'll need for entertaining guests. Beard is a soothing, pleasurable guide to the nuances and the nitty-gritty of entertaining.
