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 fierce-drinking, drug-abusing, hard-loving, live-for-the moment life. Soon Taylor's music exploded, and he found himself rich, wanted, and on the road. His new and ever-more extreme lifestyle had an unexpected effect, however; for the first time, he began to actively think about what it meant to sin and whether sinning could--or should--be recast in a different light. Seven Deadly Sins is Taylor's personal story, but it's also a larger discussion of what it means to be seen as either a "good" person or a "bad" one. Yes, Corey Taylor has broken the law and hurt people, but, if sin is what makes us human, how wrong can it be?

Publishers Weekly, 6/13/11
“Fans of the heavy metal band Slipknot will eagerly devour its lead singer/songwriter Taylor’s first book, which displays a prose that perfectly captures the supercharged energy, aggression, and outrageousness of Slipknot’s music...Powerful and moving.”
AOL Noisecreep, 8/10/11
“A compelling read, the book is a refreshing journey through an age-old concept and its definition. The warts-and-all approach he uses in his lyrical approach is used in Seven Deadly Sins to winning effect.”
“An in-depth argument for the redefinition of sin, meshed with personal stories from [Taylor’s] childhood and career.”
Seattle Weekly (Duff McKagan blog), 7/21/11
“It looks fascinating...Corey Taylor is one of those people that just seems impossibly good at whatever he chooses to pursue, and I have no doubt that this tome will reflect this fact.”
“Exceeded my expectations...Corey’s on-stage personality came across as very likable, and his direct interaction with the fans made it completely worth the time and money they invested towards this show...A delightful two-and-a-half hours with Corey Taylor...I recommend this show not only to fans of Slipknot and/or Stone Sour, but also to fans of rock music in general, because there’s something in it for all of you. A terrific performance indeed.”
Hollywood Music Magazine, 11/22/11
“[Taylor is] a literary genius of this day and age....‘Seven Deadly Sins’ is full of hilarious and thought provoking metaphors, innuendos and references that need to be highlighted just so you can show your friends...I can not recommend this book enough, hell I will buy you a copy or let you borrow mine if it means that you’ll make some time in your busy days, to read at least a few pages at a time. This a MUST-READ book if I’ve ever seen one.”
