Slipknot and Stone Sour vocalist Taylor's follow-up to Seven Deadly Sins reveals itself to be a well-meaning but often meandering collection of ghost stories and far-out philosophical and quasi-scientific ruminations on the existence of God and ghosts that never quite comes together. Circular discussions, tangential digressions and lack of focus detract and irritate rather than provoke thought or introspection; the reader instead must concentrate on Taylor's ever-wavering train of thought in order to keep up. Luckily he does much better when addressing paranormal and supernatural experiences, which constitutes the majority of the book. Some of these encounters are sought out, while others, like the ghostly children who inhabit his current home and the mansion full of ghosts who terrorized the band during a recording session, are mere chance. Taylor's enthusiasm for his topic and sheer wonder is infectious; he makes for a humble, charming host. Still, it's die hard ghost hunters and fans of Taylor's music that will likely get the most out of this. Those on the fence, whether it's regarding organized religion or the existence of ghosts, likely won't have any major revelations.
7 Deadly Suns was great! This one sucked so bad that I didn't even finish it. Only reason it got a 2 is because Corey Taylor is pretty BA, but the book sucks.Published 13 days ago by psychologistneedingbooks
Once you read it you will understand my feelings toward this book. It's a wonderful read and it really makes you think. TGBM has done it again! 5 stars!Published 1 month ago by Jessica
Overrated. Dude is his own biggest fan. Spends ten minutes telling us how objective and non-judgmental he is to people who are religious, but then goes on an hour long... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Jeffrey F.
Great addition to his book series. Cory is the King of metaphors and Analogies and getting you "His" point across.Published 1 month ago by Nick
The stories contained inside as well as the perspective He puts on them as well as his standpoint on Religion (organized belief) is very interesting. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Dennis
