In the tradition of the late, great George Carlin, Corey Taylor, the lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour, sounds off in hilarious fashion about the many vagaries of modern life that piss him off. Whether it's people's rude behavior in restaurants and malls, the many indignities of air travel, eye-searingly terrible fashion choices, dangerously clueless drivers, and - most of all - the sorry state of much modern music, Taylor's humor and insight cover civil society's seeming decline, sparing no one along the way, least of all himself. Holding nothing back and delivered in Taylor's inimitable voice, You're Making Me Hate You is a cathartic critique of the strange world in which we find ourselves.

So I have tears in my eyes and a headache from all the laughing and vigorous head-nodding I did while reading this book, but it was a good time. Corey Taylor's amazing voice and talent for lyrics translated beautifully into a angry, hilarious manifesto on the idiocy of today's average human being. I found myself a kindred spirit; yes, Mr. Taylor, I hate them too!
I highly recommend this book to anyone with half a brain and concern for not only younger generations, but ourselves.
A complex individual, with many varying interests including; technology, music, family, sports, travel, truth and knowledge.
I would not recommend this book to a friend, unless they were an absolute diehard fan of CT. He rants a lot, in the vein of say Adam Carolla, but it's just not as interesting or introspective as Adam.
Corey definitely has an easy voice to listen to with a smooth delivery of the topic. I'd be interested in hearing him voice something that he didn't write, as his VO skills are strong.
I imagine a movie based on this book would be a remake of a Jackass style movie, so no probably not.
What happened to the editing near the end? It's like they paid for a set amount of editing and once the amount of time purchased was up, they just stopped. Toward the end you hear Corey make mistakes, repeat lines, etc. All things that should have been edited out of the final copy. Weird.
I loved it, love that he narrates, makes it even more enjoyable to listen to.
I did not understand what or who the author was. I probably shouldn't hve ordered this book. Some people might find his stories funny, but I they just sounded like an angry rant to me.
I wouldn't buy anohter one by Corey Taylor
It stressed me out.
Angry rants can be funny, like Lewis Black, But I just didn't get this one.
Corey's voice is the best thing ever to listen to, but this book was funny, well written and thought provoking! I love it and I love his reading style....he's very animated which makes it even funner!
Holly shit I Coudn't agree more. everyone thinks I'm a bitch for disliking any popular song that is played on the radio 20milion times, or in every stupid comercial thats trying to sale me something on a daily basis. it's completely ridiculous! my response to anyone that tried to contradict me and my music taste is: "you dumb fuck! you don't like that pop-shit song you just heard!. they made think you like it!"
gotta love CT. lol
I really enjoyed listening to a very intelligent person that isn't censoring himself explain what is wrong with the humans that are currently "dragging there knuckles" on this wonderful planet of earth. I got a better feeling of the image that Corey Taylor was trying to convey as he himself narrated this audible book which made the experience out of this world. I look forward to listening to his other books.
