"I was 22 years old, a hard-on with a pulse: wretched vice-ridden, too much to burn and not enough minutes in a hour to do so. 1995 was a full 365-day year of drinking, fucking, lying, raging and exploration for me - not a dull one in the bunch. It was a time of self-shit: self-importance, self-absorption, self-indulgence and selfishness. I was the only person in the known galaxy and I wanted what the fuck I wanted sooner rather than later."
The action begins in West Des Moines, Iowa, where Corey Taylor, frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour, systematically set about committing each of the Seven Deadly Sins. He has picked fights with douche bags openly brandishing guns. He has set himself on fire at parties and woken up in dumpsters after cocaine binges. He lost his virginity at eleven. He got rich and famous and immersed himself in booze, women, and chaos until one day he realised, suddenly, that he didn't need any of that at all.
Candid. Literate. Brilliant. Seven Deadly Sins is a brutally honest look at 'a life that could have gone horribly wrong at any turn', and the soul-searching and self-discovery it took to set it right.

This made me giddy, excited and want to throw up. From his hilarious tales of his past antics, passionate tirades and recounting of his painful childhood, Corey's reading of his book takes the audience on the ride with him. It made me guffaw out loud on public transport and made my heart hurt. For such an angry, loud personality, you can hear the hurt 11 year old in his voice as he recounts his childhood. He is the consummate performer and it all comes out in this audiobook.
Yes, Corey can rant. Sometimes I wondered where he was going. But hey, that's what he's made his career out of, and it was entertaining none-the-lessI would honestly get this book for his gorgeous voice alone. He could make a third career just out of reading audiobooks (he rivals David Tennant as my favorite narrator).Oh, and for those not familiar with Corey's other work, it would be amiss of me not to mention the very strong language. It makes the book what it is though, and he has such an amazing way with words. I was really impressed. Really, really impressed with this book.
Intellligent and hilariously writen.
