Publisher's Summary

Corey Taylor has seen a lot of unbelievable things. The Grammy Award-winning singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour's curiosity has drawn him into situations that would’ve sent most people screaming scared and running for the hills.

Corey’s ballsy enough to go into the darkness and deal with the consequences, though. As a result, he’s seen ghosts up close and personal, whether it be while combing through an abandoned house in his native Iowa as a child or recording an album in the fabled Houdini Hollywood Hills mansion. He’s also got the memories (and scars) to prove it. For some reason, he can’t seem to shake these spectral stories, and that brings us to this little tome right here....

At the same time, being an erudite, tattooed, modern Renaissance Man, he never bought into the whole God thing. Simply put, he’s seen ghosts, but he hasn’t seen Jesus. Corey especially can’t find a reason why people do the insane things they do in HIS name. That’s where everything really gets interesting.

His second book, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Heaven, compiles Corey’s most intimate, incredible, and insane moments with the supernatural. His memories are as vivid as they are vicious. As he recounts these stories, he questions the validity of religious belief systems and 2,000-year-old dogma.

As always his rapid-fire writing, razor-sharp sense of humour, unbridled honesty, and cosy anecdotes make quite the case for his point. You might end up believing him or not. That’s up to you, of course. Either way, you’re in for a hell of ride.

The outrageous sequel to Corey Taylor's Seven Deadly Sins is now available as an audiobook.

Scary Spooky

Well I had absolutely no idea whatsoever what this book was going to be about before I started listening. I got it purely because I enjoyed listening to the 7 Deadly Sins. Must admit I was a bit nervous that this was going to be another angry rant - don't get me wrong, I enjoyed 7DS in the end, but I was worried this book would be a continuation of his ranting. It was not. Not really.

Corey speaks about paranormal experiences that has happened to himself and his friends, and you hear some really cool stories of pieces of his life. I listened to this on night shift at work (I'm a truck driver) and I got scared! I was spooking myself with ghostly reflections in my windows, it was great. I gave the story, performance, everything 5 stars because of the range of emotions I experienced from listening to this book. Also, as usual, The Great Big Mouth is excellent at narrating his own story.

He does share his strong opinions about religion and stupid people, but this felt more like an intelligent, informed discussion with a like-minded person rather than the preaching and ranting I felt we got in the last book. I am an atheist, and I have had paranormal experiences so I totally related to this book. I got scared and teary eyed over the buried memories that resurfaced. As a side note, I'm glad we have a celebrity atheist out there prepared to share their non religious views. Great book.

Superstitious nonsense

i love corey but he has a very over active imagination. The stories in this book, whilst being entertaining, could certainly all be explained logically given the chance.

Well worth it!

I own all his books in physical forms but hearing them read from the man himself is definitely worth it!

fantastic!

I love Corey Taylor a lot love his music and how down to earth he is, and this book is very interesting. For someone like myself who is a strong believer of spirits and the paranormal it was a great read. I have had some strange experiences in the past and it's great to hear that he went through similar. I wasn't a fan when he was crushing and disrespecting some religions tho, yes I agree 90% on what he said but not all religion is bad it may be extremely crumpet but it does general help people. I do believe in some sort of heaven even God but don't get me wrong even if he does exist I'm not the biggest fan I just think it's all connected in some way. Apart from that it was brilliant read even at curtain part's I couldn't stop laughing such a great dude, cheers for a great listen.

Corey Taylor for president already!!!

We need more people that think like him in the world. His level of open mindedness is quite rare.

Intelligent & thought provoking

A refreshingly honest discussion on the Paranormal which left me wishing I could respond! Well considered at at times humorous.

my first audio book. And what a listen! amazing.

I've never listened to a book. nor have I managed to read a book in full since school. im 34 now and I was genuinely transfixed with this novel.
Corey's voice conveys so much passion and conviction it's hard to stop listening.
as an avid fan of his music. I put a high bar for this book to reach. And it reached it. I would recommend to anyone.

Would recommend to those who think.

It makes a HUGE difference having Corey read to you himself (with that beautiful voice of his).

You can sit back and zone out to this book, whilst being made to think at the same time. The perfect ratio of story telling to learning.

Entertaining, Informative and Gripping

This is the second audible book that I have purchased from Corey Taylor. As a narrator, he is easy to listen to and very engaging. The book is very funny, at times very Gripping and a bit dark. at times very light hearted and warm. Its a very well balanced book, Corey is very open about his experiences and is on a journey towards understanding, rather than being preachy and pushy with his beliefs (or lack of).

Makes you think dunnit

I found myself unable to stop listening as Corey's views on this fascinating subject make a lot of sense. Certainly stirred the pot with regard to organised religion. Thumbs up!!!!!

Fantastic read for paranormal enthusiasts. NOT A MUSIC BOOK

For anyone like me who is a big fan of Corey and of the Paranormal. This a fantastic read. Great balance of "ghost stories, theory behind them and other subjects such as religion with a wonderful Corey Taylor twist to it. Love the book!!
