Book Description

14 July 2011

'I was 22 years old, a hard-on with a pulse: wretched vice-ridden, too much to burn and not enough minutes in a hour to do so. 1995 was a full 365-day year of drinking, fucking, lying, raging and exploration for me - not a dull one in the bunch. It was a time of self-shit: self-importance, self-absorption, self-indulgence and selfishness. I was the only person in the known galaxy and I wanted what the fuck I wanted sooner rather than later.'

The action begins in West Des Moines, Iowa, where Corey Taylor, frontman of Slipknot and Stone Sour, systematically set about committing each of the Seven Deadly Sins. He has picked fights with douche bags openly brandishing guns. He has set himself on fire at parties and woken up in dumpsters after cocaine binges. He lost his virginity at eleven. He got rich and famous and immersed himself in booze, women, and chaos until one day he realised, suddenly, that he didn't need any of that at all.

Candid. Literate. Brilliant. 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Corey's Sins 29 Aug 2011
This book looks into the seven Deadly Sins from the mind of Corey Taylor. Corey humorously tells all about the sins from his beliefs and one of those beliefs is that they are not sins. While also inserting little stories about his own personal life that are relevant to the sin he also makes you think and use your own views rather than just agreeing with him. The only issue I have with this book has been with Amazon themselves who sent me the book five weeks after the UK release date. The book is well worth a buy, a read and a laugh.

3.0 out of 5 stars Seven Deadly Sins, really? 18 Dec 2011
By S.M.
I was really looking forward to reading this, as I am a big fan of Slipknot and Stone Sour; however, this book by Corey Taylor is somewhat a disappointment to what the title indicates.
Corey seems to spend most of his time contradicting the whole point of a sin by explaining each one individually and how they 'relate' to his past life, then turns round and says, actually it's not a sin because we are allowed to make mistakes and learn from them. So, the point of this book is...?
Secondly, his 'confessions' appear slightly censored and details are glossed over for the reader to try to fill in the blanks. My impression of autobiographical account is you unleash all, which is what I would expect from such an intelligent writer/ performer. With such a prolific status, Deadly Sins got me thinking of a no holds barred recount of his life, I found it rather tame.
I must not be completely pessimistic! Yes, it is very well written and it is without doubt the Corey is a very intelligent man, but I expected more. Maybe that was just my high expectations of him.
This book does give you an (slight) insight into his life; however, the majority is made up of what Corey thinks about the world around him and the people who fill it. I am sure many Slipknot and Stone Sour fans will find it an interesting, brilliant read. It is worth a read if you want to find out someone else's opinions about life, which is why I awarded it three stars.
Obviously, I was expecting something more, without contradictions... maybe that is my sin...?

5.0 out of 5 stars corey supersedes all expectations 15 July 2011
By fieldzy
This book is the pinnacle of one mans amendment of the theory of social life and acceptance. Speaking aloud of what a majority think with the testicles to back it up and more experience than a 70 Year old hooker in Vegas. He has set a milestone in terms of honesty, sincerity and devotion. To a man who appears to leave no stone unturned, I recommend this book not only as a pleasurable experience, but as a self-help bible. This is one to stay on the pedestal. Well done Corey, you supercilious genius !

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, not brilliant either 7 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a fan of Corey Taylor's musical work I was expecting great things from this, tho if I'm honest I wasn't really sure what I should be expecting.
After a while I started to find the ramblings about the seven deadly sins slightly tiresome , to a point where each time I thought about putting the book down I would find myself at the end of one of those ramblings that lead to an interesting and insightful story of his formulative years.
Not a great read, perhaps a tad self indulgent but certainly not the worst thing ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this 16 Aug 2013
I was always going to love this book. As a big fan of Corey and his opinionated ways this book didn't disappoint. I found myself agreeing along the way and really enjoying the tit bits about his life.
It's nice to read a celebrities book who's happy to admitting about their past in such an open way. Corey has always been a down to earth guy and reading his book just proves that further.
Great artist and a great intellectual mind.

I read this on my kindle whilst knitting and will be working bits into my PhD thesis. Urban Ecology will definitely benefit from a philosophical kick in the appropriate parts.

This book is all about how he hates everyone and frequently tells you! It's hugely insulting to the buyer. Threw in bin after about 20 pages where it deserves to be
