Corey Taylor: You’re Making Me Hate You (book review)

Out of all the books I’ve read, this is the one I can relate to the most. Corey Taylor does not hold back and has a lot to say about what is wrong with this society we live in today.

Taylor has plenty of super hilarious stories, which will having you literally laughing out loud. From leaving a guy on the street because he puked and shit his pants, to going to these so called hollywood parties, to just ripping Justin Bierber to shits, to what is wrong with some this newer generation of kids.

“The Neck” as so people call him, among his many other nicknames doesnt only share with us what makes him angry, Taylor also has some great advice for when you are traveling, what to and not to do when you’re at the airport. There are so many things he talks about that is hard to say a lot of them without giving his stories away.

This is honestly the funniest book I’ve read in a long, long time. And it also one I will be referring back to in the future. Seriously, go get yourself a copy of CT’s latest book, you wont regret it.

Thanks a lot to Da Capo Press for providing me with a copy of this book. Check out Their Website for some great books.

Jason Kersten: The Art of Making Money (book review)

What a thrilling story about the guy who was able to crack the 1996 one hundred dollar bill (the most secured bill in the US at the moment). Not only was Art Williams a master of this highly illegal craft, but his counterfit was almost unrecognizable to the untrained eye, even when comparing it to real bills. The “pen” used to detect fake bills was useless because Art found a way to bypass this method.

Sometimes I’m skeptical when reading book that are not written by the person the book is about, but Jason Kersten did a lot of research and actually knew the protagonist well. There are a lot of inputs throughtout the book from Art himself.

The book starts at the very beginning of his life and covers everything until his arrests. From growing up in the streets of Bridgeport to his introduction to the art of making money, a craft he learned from an older man and ultimately perfected himself.

At the time of this book’s release Art was still in jail for a second attempt at making counterfit money, and was set to be release in 2013.

I hope one day there is another release from Art Williams himself where it picks up where this book ended. Very well written book and will keep you on the edge.
