"Booth Tarkington's The Magnificent Ambersons is a delightful novel. In addition, it is a view of Indianapolis evolution from a major marketing center to a great industrial city. It adds a new dimension to one's understanding of the coming of the Industrial Age to the State of Indiana." Herman B Wells, Indiana University

"With the tremendous emphasis on wealth and status in contemporary society, Tarkington's observations are as apt today as when first written. But that is what makes a classic, isn t it?" Library Journal.
