Livin' Just to Find Emotion:
Journey and the Story of American Rock
"Readers don’t have to be Journey fans to appreciate this cerebral approach to a biography about the band. For casual readers and scholars alike."
Library Journal, starred review

"Golland meticulously colors in the band’s artistic conflicts and power struggles, paying particular attention to Perry’s decision to leave, but he’s at his most convincing when he interrogates the racial dynamics at play in the band’s success. [His] passion and precision make this a pleasure."
Publishers Weekly, starred review

"In Golland’s careful hands, Journey’s story, and their music in particular, receives a much-needed critical treatment. Golland is clearly a lifelong fan, yet at the same time, he never shies away from confronting the group’s complicated history."

"The classic lineup...have all been involved in several inter-band lawsuits over songs, business dealings, corporate board positions, even the use of the name “Journey”...Golland puts the complex legal stuff into easily digestible words...makes for a great homework reading assignment."
Houston Press
