"It is a collection of pieces about Neal Schon and certainly for the avid Journey fan this book is a fascinating read and resource."
Jason Ritchie – Get Ready To Rock (www.getreadytorock.me.uk)
"This is a very informative book regarding Schon and the maestro's career...Electric World is an interesting read and very informative book about the icon's status and history with and away from Journey."
Alison Bear – The Mayfair Mall Zine (www.themayfairmallzine.com)
"This is a book for the superfan, to be honest. But for the superfan, it is a fantastic volume collecting a ton of information on a great player that you wouldn't be able to find in one place otherwise."
Eric Banister – Music Tomes (http://musictomes.com)
"Even the most avid fan will no doubt find something to surprise them here, with Schon's work stretching from Michael Bolton and Joe Cocker to Paul Rodgers and Sammy Hagar. Daniels has pulled the whole thing together in one easy to digest guide that will be of considerable appeal to fans of Journey, Schon and the melodic rock scene in general."
Dean Pedley – Sea Of Tranquility (http://www.seaoftranquility.org)
"The layout of the book is spacey and uncluttered and on the up side has a nice big font and lots of discography pages and line-up details (essential for the changing faces of Journey)...Once again, Daniels has prodigiously added to the AOR library."
Rob McKenzie – Fireworks
"So this is written in a breezy, conversational style and not often looking deeper than chronological and celebratory narrative...this book brings you back to the music, which is what it's all about, really."
Steve Swift – Powerplay
