"[A] literary masterpiece...Witty and wroth the read."

—Publishers Weekly, -
"Taylor is an engaging narrator, skewering organized religion and his own poor choices with equal fervor."
—San Francisco Book Review, -
"This book is prat autobiographical and part suspense novel...The writing style is first person but even more than that, it's like you are sitting at the bar and [Taylor] is telling you a story. This is a whole scary as hell motion picture captured in the printed word."
"Taylor's narrative voice is rich with quick intellect and roaring humor. If one of the main jobs of a writer is to entertain the reader, then Taylor is a literary circus act...The book is a witty and thought-provoking read, and has the intimate feel of a good ghost story told around a campfire--by your most offbeat and hilarious friend."
"At several points throughout the reading of this book the hair on my arms was standing completely straight up."
"[Taylor's] witty sense of humor and writing style really pulls you in with every word...If you want a fun read about the paranormal and some laugh out loud moments from one of the coolest guys in music pick this one up."
—Sound Crave Magazine, -
"[Taylor's] follow-up flows with the same easy, conversational cadence of his debut, replete with acres of legitimately funny, self-effacing observations, as well as compelling insights, scientific research and of course, telltale doses of the swagger and bravado...Taylor's affable style is perfectly-suited to spinning yarns...A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven offers readers a thought-provoking and hellaciously-entertaining experience."
