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.
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.
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.
The most trite, inane pulp I've ever "read". Could not bear another chapter. Deleting the "book" and maybe even the app too as contaminated. Taylor needs to get a mirror.
I loved it, love that he narrates, makes it even more enjoyable to listen to.
This book is boring and redundant. Taylor tries his hardest to be clever but ends up sounding more like Juno. He whines about nonsense and his "solutions" are absurd at best. The book goes nowhere and does nothing. People who think this is thought provoking or interesting need to read real books. I'm a big fan of his music, not so much the case with his books.
Oh, and the performance is pretty poor with him reading the same line several times. I'm not sure if that's an editing issue or if he just did w poor job but it's noticeable and annoying.
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!
