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.

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 50 years, you're aware of the many hypotheses that the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was not done by one man. Whether you've listened to one or a dozen of the audiobooks on this topic, there's no way to fully grasp the depth of this conspiracy. For the first time ever, New York Times best-selling authors Jesse Ventura and Dick Russell have teamed up with some of the most respected and influential assassination researchers to put together the ultimate compendium that covers every angle - from the plot to the murder - of JFK.

The witnesses are legion, scattered across the world and dotted through history, people who looked up and saw something impossible lighting up the night sky. What those objects were, where they came from, and who - or what - might be inside them is the subject of fierce debate and equally fierce mockery, so that most who glimpsed them came to wish they hadn't. Most, but not everyone.

This book was written very well and I found it very similar to Whitley Streibers "The Greys" as far as the format of multiple plots of multiple people meeting to a similar plot. This book was very suspenseful and excited as a person very much into ufology. I will be listening to this book a few more times anticipating the next release from the authors!!!!! Instant classic!!!

I loved the story line of this book and wish they would make it into a movie. This book being written by such a well respected authority in the field of ufology did not disappoint! I would love to read more from the minds of this collaboration. I will listen to this book 3 or 4 more times for sure!

Despite the government's best efforts to explain it away, after nearly 70 years, Roswell is a story that just won't disappear. Parents who were present during or immediately after the incident may have passed on, but their children know what happened‚ and have paid dearly for their knowledge. These are their stories.

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.

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.

The Aztec UFO Incident - the first ever widely publicized report of a recovered flying saucer - was derided as a hoax for decades. But now the Ramseys and Frank Thayer reveal the exact spot where the craft landed and show how the 100-foot-diameter saucer was moved to a secret laboratory. Witnesses to the incident who were interviewed by the authors affirm that they were sworn to secrecy by the military. The authors also reveal the names of scientists who worked on the craft after its recovery.

This book was very enjoyable to listen to! I was very surprised about how thorough thorough research was and how well they listed all of their sources! This is by far my favorite book in the field of ufology. I personally think they have shown without a doubt there was a UFO crash in Aztec. I look forward to reading more of their work. I must also mention that they were great at keeping this audience entertained while explaining all the documentation and research that took place.
