"It proves once again that in the absence of a contemporary Mark Twain to deal with our follies and horrors the old one will do very well indeed."
"Here is a book that is a pleasure to recommend. A collection of angry pieces by Twain with a superb introduction, as well as an afterpiece of notes on his selections, by the editor...[This is] a collection to be dipped into time and again."
