Editorial Reviews

Review

''With America 51, Taylor maintains his lazer-like focus on our cultural foibles...As someone who has clearly put a lot of time and effort into thinking about what it means to be an American in 2017, versus just clicking on clickbait and then ranting about it to his Facebook followers, he's earned the right to do so in a very public forum such as a book from a major publishing house.'' --Blurt Online

''In his typical stream-of-consciousness style...the Slipknot frontman airs his gripes with all the political b-s-ery that has gone down on his home turf recently...This is a takedown of modern-day politics and (of course) the Trump administration from a man who admits he feels no kinship to either big party, but has a wealth of knowledge on American politics and a comical yet vicious tongue to match...Corey shares his liberal views on everything from Black Lives Matter to Reaganomics, with cursing and caps lock firmly in place, forever reminding the reader that he's an a-hole (his words!). And while not everyone will agree with the points made on these pages, this a-hole knows his sh*t.'' --Metal Hammer

''[Taylor] land[s] some highly-effective jabs...It's a work that's part-memoir, part-American history, part-social commentary, and much more besides. America 51's primary purpose is to get people thinking and, equally importantly, talking...This is a book with admirable intentions.'' --Kerrang!

''[Taylor] draws a brutally honest portrait of his country.'' --Media Mikes

''With humorous stories, historical fact, and thought-provoking opinion [Taylor] impresses upon the reader the ideology behind the stunning election of Trump. The book is not a burdeonsome bitchfest from a guy who isn't happy with the outcome of the 2016 Presidential Election though. On the contrary, Taylor gives clear examples on how America is changing, politically, socially, morally, and responsibly. Racism, welfare, health care, jobs, religion, economy, Reagan, Obama, Hillary, Trump, Muslim ban, and many other issues important to America, or that should be important to America and Americans, are discussed....Taylor puts the spotlight on things that as citizens who love this country need to look at and find out how to fix, or change, or make better.'' --MusicFrenzy.net

''[Taylor] spares no one and nothing: neither the rubes who think Trump is looking out for them nor the PC busybodies who whine about 'micro aggressions' as big corporations undermine everyone's 'macro.''' --Milwaukee Shepherd Express

''[An] uncensored, no-holds-barred view of the political situation this country has been in, not just since the 2016 election circus, but since long before that. Though his disdain for Trump is quite prevalent throughout the entire book, Taylor doesn't stick to one side of the fence or the other; liberals, conservatives, republicans, democrats and hipsters are all up for grabs...America 51 will appeal to the masses no matter your political stance, race, class, gender or social views. Corey Taylor expresses the frustration we all share with what is going on in our country.'' --Sonic Sound Magazine
