Summary
On the surface, everything is all right with Babbitt's world. The solid, successful businessman. But in reality, George F. Babbit is a lonely middle-aged man who doesn't understand his family, who has an unsuccessful fling at an affair, who voices sympathy for some striking workers and is almost financially ruined by his action, who finds his only safety lies deep in the fold of those who play it safe. He is a man who has added a new word to our language "Babbitt"... a word which means a booster, a success... a sheep
