Book Description

July 3 2012
For the first time, Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor speaks directly to his fans and shares his worldview about life as a sinner. And Taylor knows how to sin. As a small-town hero in the early ’90s, he threw himself into a hard-drinking, fierce-loving, live-for-the-moment life; when his music exploded, he found himself rich, wanted, and on the road. But soon his extreme lifestyle led him to question what it means to sin and whether it could—or should—be cast in a different light. After all, if sin makes us human how wrong can it be?

Now updated with a new Afterword by the author, 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Oct. 17 2012
By Ariadne
Format:Hardcover
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Corey Taylor the Preacher Dec 21 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars CMFT May 17 2013
By Michael Haman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read for one thing, found something so much more! Feb. 27 2013
By Melissa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I originally started reading this book as a way to get an insight into Corey Taylor, someone so many friends of mine severely admire. What I found though were words and an insight into an incredible way of thinking... I can honestly say it has opened my eyes and my mind, and I will be definitely taking a new thought pattern away with me!
