In this book, Corey Taylor undertakes something never before attempted in the history of rock superstardom: he takes you with him as he journeys undercover through various ghostbusting groups who do their best to gather information and evidence about the existence of spirits. Some are more credible than others, and, frankly, some are completely insane, but all are observed with appropriate seriousness as Taylor attempts to better understand some of the spooky things that have happened to him in his life, especially that night at the Cold House.
But that's not all, folks. Taylor once again gives you a behind-the-scenes tour of his crazy life and the many beyond-the-grave events he's encountered. (You'll be shocked how often Slipknot has been invaded by the supernatural). Taylor also touches on his religious background and how it led him to believe in much more than the Man in the Sky.

Admittedly, I am a huge Corey Taylor fan, so this review may be a bit biased. I love Corey's writing style. It's brutally honest, funny, insightful, and doesn't give a shit what you think about it. He doesn't pull punches or shy away from the offensive, but comes at the reader with both barrels blasting, leaving the reader to either absorb the message or get the hell out of the way. Overall, an amazing story, read by the author in a voice that is all his own.
I can only recommend this to people who like ghost stories or people who take an interest in Corey Taylor.
If you like Corey Taylor's work and take an interest in him as a person, you will enjoy this book. It very much reads like someone's thought process, filled with entertaining tangents and good stories. It doens't change my personal opinion on the paranormal, and his "Intelligent Energy" idea is full of holes and guesses, but it's something to, at bare minimum, acknowledge.
It's Corey Taylor, so straight away I knew I was going to love it! But a book about CMFT talking about ghosts? Even better! As always, he tells it how it is which makes for a really interesting and fun read.
Thank you for correlating specifics that I previously didn't consider to be completely related into context together. Removed is my proverbial mask. Thank you!
I would totally give it a 5/5, good detail, and great story.
I got to say when he can be serious for one minute then be completely hilarious the next.
I gotta say his neighbor that is a fan of his apparently stealing his rake just so he can get Corey's autograph, I died.
Warning, if you are offended easy, this is not for you, period.
I got to say that Corey Taylor's work has always been great, all though Seven Deadly Sins is still my favorite book by his, this is still a good read.
I came in with little knowledge to what corey taylor was up to, but as he expanded his ideas I came to understand him. He is a brilliant narrator, mostly from the fact I am a fan of his music and he just has a nice funny but dark tone. I reccomed this book to anyone looking for a different experience and who is fasinated by the supernatural. Good job corey!
Corey tells phantasmic tales of his own super natural experiences in a sarcastic and witty way. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who is open to new perspectives about life and the world around us. I am definitely looking forward to his next book.
Certainly not an all-time favorite, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Definitely the fact that Corey Taylor narrated this himself. Made the whole I g much more captivating.
It's his story! Who better to perform it. He has a great voice and inserted his humor and sarcasm perfectly.
I never realized he wrote other books.
Yes, not knowing what this book would have in it or who the author was I would recommend it. It's an easy read filled with random tidbits of information. Corey's performance is very conversational and the stories were filled with great illustrative detail.
I could have done with less explicit language and ramblings about religious points of view, otherwise it was very entertaining.
I liked his memories of "the mansion" and his friend "jack" and his experience with his parents.
I found him funny to listen to in general... there is nothing I can think of that he didn't nod to at some point in the book.
Corey Taylors personal experiences with ghosts.
His voice. He would be a great narrator for other authors books as well.
