I can honestly say that this is one of my favourite books. Being a fan of both Slipknot and Stone Sour, I was extremely excited when I heard that Corey Taylor was writing a book. "Seven Deadly Sins" is NOT an autobiography nor is it marketed as one. It's basically Corey defending his opinion that the Seven Deadly Sins aren't actually sins but just a common part of human behaviour. There are multiple anecdotes from Corey's life that he uses to back up his arguments. It's quite philosophical at times and always entertaining. My favourite thing about this book is the fact that it's amusing yet makes some interesting points. Corey's writing style is very eloquent and I find that he does a really good job at defending himself. This book is a real page turner that's sure to be loved by any Corey Taylor fan. A definite must read. I really hope he writes another one soon.

I hoped for an autobiography but I didn't get that. There are only a few short stories of his own and some aren't even in great detail. What I got out of the book was Corey Taylor stating how the seven deadly sins are not sins and he overstated this by repeating his views with different sentences. It's not a long book and could of definitely been shorter if he didn't repeat himself over and over in each chapter. This has to be one of my most disappointing reads in a long time. Heres to hoping he still puts out the autobiography.

Wow. July 5 2011
By Catherine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I don't want to type a long review, but I did want to point out a few things about this book. It is not an autobiography. It is Corey Taylor's opinions on the seven deadly sins. There are quite a few anecdotes of his life, but they are there mainly to prove that Corey has the knowledge/experience to write about each particular sin. Having said that, I found this book to be both funny and insightful. He really writes so everyone can understand him, and get thouroughly into his story. We all know Corey can write moving songs, but who knew he could do the same in a book? I truly enjoyed reading this.

It's like a conversation with Corey July 20 2011
By J. Grey - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have said, it's not an autobiography, although it does contain anecdotes and insights into Corey Taylor's life. It's more of a philosophy about what sins are (old and new), what human nature is, and how it all fits into life. Each of the 7 deadly sins has its place, and in Corey T's world, that place isn't always where you expect.

In this book, Corey Taylor's thoughts are clear and well developed, and his style is conversational. It's surprisingly clever in places. From the moment I picked it up, it held my interest and kept it throughout. You feel like you're listening to him talk (where's that audio book?)

It's well worth the read.

What a great read! July 20 2011
By Kris - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I've always liked Corey's humor and his world view is a lot like mine (I have to say it's like mine as I am older - LOL!). This book is poignant, if you ask me, and made me laugh out loud several, hell LOTS, of times! I'm glad that my thoughts and views are finally in print! :o) Great job and highly recommend it!

I gave this book a 5 star rating. The reason is Corey spoke the absolute truth about the topic of the Seven Deadly Sins. I have never heard a good take on these, let alone one with truth and research from life-experiences. It was perfectly written with promptness and intelligence. I loved the interjections of humor in between things to break off and kind of let you know that " Hey guys, I've been through this s***, I know what I am talking about here." I can't say enough good things about this piece and I am looking forward to the end of summer when his new book arrives. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to have an eye opening experience.

One of the best books I've ever read March 8 2013
By Rebekah E. Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this book. Read the whole thing in just a few days. I could not possibly have had a different childhood & life experiences than Corey Taylor & yet I agree w/ almost everything he wrote in this book. Don't let the rockstar persona fool you. He is one intelligent, critical thinker & a damn good writer to boot.
