    Really disappointed. I have a lot of respect for Mike Farrell, but this account of his travels to promote a book (he drives a hybrid, the Mule)driving from bookstore to radio station to bookstore across the county. His descriptions of the countryside he drives through are OK, but pretty trite and the descriptions of the wonderful people he encounters all begin to sound the same. Sorry, but I just wasn't able to finish it.

    I like Mike Farrell & respect the activist work he does, particularly in conjunction with Death Penalty Focus. I recently attended a DPF awards dinner in Beverly Hills for which he was the M.C. The book itself, which I received a complimentary copy of at the benefit, is really his cross-country, speaking-tour travel blog translated into book format. Mildly engaging as such.

  • John Kues

    An enjoyable read, though some of his talk gets tiresome, and his imaginary conversations with "mule" (A Prius rental) just a bit much. There is a sameness about all the wonderful people he knows and meets involved with abolishing the death penalty. While I agree with his views of Bush and Chaney I also found them repetitive.

  • Carolyn

    Diary format. It was fun and inspiring. Farrell was very enthusiastic about everything, but some of the compliments seemed empty or trite. His "relationship" talk with the rental car was too much even for me who drives a similar car.

  • Maggie Rutledge

    Not only is the book sprinkled with humor, it really makes you think. Although, I probably should have read the first book.

  • Jeff

    read twice. unique concept and well written

    Knowing what this was about before I read it made it a little easier. Boy its funny to watch baby boomers in unfamiler events. Like pushing a button to start a car. LOL .
