Format: Paperback
Having read Daniels' book on Journey, which I really enjoyed, he turns his attention to Neal Schon. This is not a biography and nor does it purport to be anything but a guider to the music of Journey's underrated guitarist. Daniels is clearly a Journey fan and loves AOR. He details each album as well as the various side projects Schon has been involved in such as Hardline and Bad English and there are interviews with Ricky Phillips and Jeff Scott Soto amongst others. I really enjoyed this book - it doesn't claim to be definitive. As the title says, it's a casual guide, and as such its a handy reference work. There are lots of reviews, interviews and detailed timelines and discographies and a foreword by Robert Fleischman who originally fronted Journey. I enjoyed this book a lot and it sits comfortably next to Daniels' Journey bio on my bookshelf.

2.0 out of 5 stars Although the title is true I found this book disappointing 16 Mar. 2014
By CyberTiger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book to find out more about Neal Schon. I was hoping they'd cover more about his pre-Santana history and more detail on when he was in Santana but they didn't. Having been influenced by Neal's guitar playing myself since I first saw him play with Santana I wanted to find out more about his career. When Neal left Santana I was disappointed in that I thought they played well together and you could tell that Neal was the perfect foil for Carlos. Although I was a fan of very early Journey when the band hired Steve Perry I lost interest. Granted that this doesn't mean I didn't like the Perry Journey I just wanted more driving guitar that Neal provided. When Journey became the commercialized-hit-maker they've become, I believed Neal's playing has been deprived a bit. This book sparsely covers more about the commercial Journey. I don't recommend this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Casual guide is a Terrible rip off 5 Jan. 2014
By Franco B - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Spelling and grammar errors aside, this is nothing more than a cut and paste job offering the reader clips of old interviews tied together in an unintelligible hodgepodge. Don't waste your money. This is all on the internet for free. The parts that come from the author interviews are from people that have nothing of significance to say. This "book" is better suited to a Wikipedia entry but due to the magic technology it is allowed to masquerade as a book. Why are there no author interviews with Neal Schon, Gregg Rolie, Steve Perry, Carlos Santana and the like who could have really treated the reader to a cavalcade of musical delight? I recommend you wait for the real deal: Neal Schon's authorized Biography which will be out mid year.... The photos suck as well. All from the same event it seems. The author even stoops so low as to have copied Neal's internet post for his wedding and includes it as a photo. Nothing new here folks except that you'll be a few bucks lighter if you purchase this drivel dressed up as a book.
4.0 out of 5 stars 'Wheel in the sky keeps on turnin''.... 11 Feb. 2014
By S. W. Latham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having enjoyed “Don’t Stop Believin’: The Untold Story Of Journey”, I decided to give this title a go- after all, Neal George Joseph Schon has been involved with Journey from the start. It’s a strong reference tool- and although not definitive (it doesn’t pretend to be either, hence the words ‘casual guide’ in the title), it does have a strong selection of reviews, interviews and discographies with accompanying timelines, covering his career with Santana, Journey and beyond.

Having read other books by the author, I have to say it isn’t his best work; but I think it is an excellent buy for fans of Journey and album-oriented rock. Especially with the limited selection available.
