In his first title, front man of Slipknot and Stone Sour Corey Taylor took on the seven deadly sins, pulling them apart to reveal all that is irrelevant and wrong about the vices in the modern world through his own uniquely hilarious yet ferocious style. But in Corey's eyes that's not all that is wrong with the world today....
From bad music, fame and infomercials to raising kids, sex and airport security, You're Making Me Hate You is the result of a one-man mission to demonstrate the alarming rise in worldwide idiocy, buffoonery and out-and-out disregard for intelligent thought.
Rant filled but eloquent, shocking but intelligent, this is best-selling author Corey Taylor at his most Corey Taylor, and he doesn't leave himself out either... turns out he's just as f***ing stupid as the rest of us, too.

I was surprised how much this book made me laugh! Corey is an expert storyteller and his sense of humour was one that made this ride all the more enjoyable. I'm yet to experience a few of the things that he spoke about but what I did relate to in this book, Corey made some solid SOLID arguments about what on earth was wrong with so many things in the world. And when I told my parents about this book they just wrote it off as a novel length rant, but HA! To them, because I actually learned a few things in this tome, mainly how to do a few things differently as an 18 year old, and one of my lessons kicked in the other night. I went out clubbing, and with Corey's book in mind, I realised how synthetic this whole clubbing thing was, and now you'll never catch me inside one of those things...sorry I'm getting carried away. Solid book Corey!
I listen to books to help keep my mind active when I'm on night shift. I mainly like to revisit all my favorites that I have read in print
Listened to this in one shift at work. Very entertaining - a little vomit in my mouth straight up, 7 hours of laughs, and heaps of "me too!" moments
"I love it"
Its a book full of humour, Corey's way of looking at life, and it just feels good listening to this guy as he has an agree-able way of looking at life and all the shit happening to us.
I loved it.
I thought I was the only one who thinks like this, glad to see I am not alone. He pretty muched voiced my thoughts.
"Got To Love Him"
I spent a great deal of time nodding my head, laughing and ranting along with Mr Taylor. Brilliant book.
"love this book"
the books is awesome. corey taylor is amazing writer and at reading his book. just awesome
"best thing ive ever heard"
i loved this book! its so funny and makes you realise how stupid everyone is (including myself)
"This book changed how I look at people."
This seems like a very boring and overused response to a book that contemplates the actions of people but I'm serious this book changed how I look at people and now I feel really well equipped to go out into the world and not be a moron.
The part where Corey is just a grumpy British guy...
So all of it.
Listening to Corey's own mannerisms and the way he puts """emphasis""" (to put it lightly) on parts of the story really brings forward his points.
Oh, the world is over? I didn't realise, I was just checking my twitter.
Such a great book, one I will never forget.
