Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of the late, great George Carlin, Corey Taylor, the lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour, sounds off in hilarious fashion about the many vagaries of modern life that piss him off. Whether it's people's rude behavior in restaurants and malls, the many indignities of air travel, eye-searingly terrible fashion choices, dangerously clueless drivers, and - most of all - the sorry state of much modern music, Taylor's humor and insight cover civil society's seeming decline, sparing no one along the way, least of all himself. Holding nothing back and delivered in Taylor's inimitable voice, You're Making Me Hate You is a cathartic critique of the strange world in which we find ourselves.

Creative use of vulgar language, if you like that?

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would not recommend this book to a friend, unless they were an absolute diehard fan of CT. He rants a lot, in the vein of say Adam Carolla, but it's just not as interesting or introspective as Adam.


What about Corey Taylor’s performance did you like?

Corey definitely has an easy voice to listen to with a smooth delivery of the topic. I'd be interested in hearing him voice something that he didn't write, as his VO skills are strong.


If this book were a movie would you go see it?

I imagine a movie based on this book would be a remake of a Jackass style movie, so no probably not.


Any additional comments?

What happened to the editing near the end? It's like they paid for a set amount of editing and once the amount of time purchased was up, they just stopped. Toward the end you hear Corey make mistakes, repeat lines, etc. All things that should have been edited out of the final copy. Weird.

Do yourself a favor and don't get this book.

This book is boring and redundant. Taylor tries his hardest to be clever but ends up sounding more like Juno. He whines about nonsense and his "solutions" are absurd at best. The book goes nowhere and does nothing. People who think this is thought provoking or interesting need to read real books. I'm a big fan of his music, not so much the case with his books.
Oh, and the performance is pretty poor with him reading the same line several times. I'm not sure if that's an editing issue or if he just did w poor job but it's noticeable and annoying.
