Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Actor-producer Farrell's 2007 memoir, Just Call Me Mike: A Journey to Actor and Activist, traced his spiritual odyssey from a working-class childhood to fame from TV's M*A*S*H and his worldwide humanitarian efforts. Promotion of that paperback led him on an 8,882-mile book tour to 25 cities, documented in dispatches to the Huffington Post. Now he collects his journal entries from that 36-day road trip with Mule, his nickname for the Prius hybrid rental car he drove from city to city in May and June 2008. For Farrell, the trip was an opportunity to network with the human rights and justice organizations co-sponsoring the tour, while meeting old friends, giving interviews and doing q&a sessions where he could speak out: One woman asked me what I thought were the three most critically important things we had to do to get this country back on track. I said, 'Elect Barack Obama, elect Barack Obama, elect Barack Obama.' The book is nicely designed, with page numbers inside little road sign shapes; chapter headings list mileage, destination and such co-sponsors as the ACLU, Center for Victims of Torture and Greenpeace. Sidebars throughout detail the aims and accomplishments of groups like the Southern Center for Human Rights, which represents hundreds on death row. Farrell writes with an upbeat, optimistic attitude, infused with humor, insights and soul. As he drives across the landscape, he also drives home important social justice issues. (May 1)

From School Library Journal

Farrell is best known for his role as B.J. Hunnicutt on M*A*S*H, but off the screen, he has been a political activist, working with several human rights and peace organizations. In May 2008, he set out on a book tour for his autobiography, Just Call Me Mike, which he chronicled in dispatches to the Huffington Post. Those dispatches are gathered together here, along with additional information and resources. Farrell's politics are loud and clear in these vignettes as he frequently refers to the events happening in the late spring and summer of 2008, acquiring ammunition by listening to right-wing talk radio along the long stretches of highway between bookstores and public library readings. The descriptions of the landscapes and cities are evocative, but the flow of the story is frequently disrupted with his tendency to name-drop. The book will likely be appreciated by fans and like-minded activists, but others may be turned off by Farrell's polemics.—Anna Creech, Univ. of Richmond, VA

Very fun fast read. I love that Mike put the references to organizations in such a way you could read about them during the reading of his story or go back and review later, which I have done. I must admit I loved his first book very much so knew I would love this one as well. He is funny and honest. I can hardly wait for his next one!

I loved the stories, both of the towns visited and the dialogue with his Prius. Have bought copies for friends who have Prius' as well. Very entertaining.

If you agree with his politics it is a fine read. He writes in an informal, friendly style. It is like chatting with a friend who is knowledgable about his subject.

Farrell was great as Dr. B.J. Hunicutt on M*A*S*H as a political analyst and commentator he is a less than adequate liberal wienie.
