    coreytalorCorey Taylor appear at Book Revue on Thursday, July 9th, 2015 at 7:00 PM to speak about and sign his new book, You’re Making Me Hate You.

    In the tradition of the late great George Carlin, New York Times bestselling author and lead singer of Slipknot and Stone Sour Corey Taylor 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.
