Publisher's Summary

The always-outspoken hard rock vocalist Corey Taylor begins America 51 with a reflection on what his itinerant youth and frequent worldwide travels with his multiplatinum bands Slipknot and Stone Sour have taught him about what it means to be an American in an increasingly unstable world. He examines the way America sees itself, specifically with regard to the propaganda surrounding America's origins (like a heavy-metal Howard Zinn) while also celebrating the quirks and behavior that make a true-blue American.

Balancing humor, outrage, and disbelief, Taylor examines the rotting core of America, evaluating everything from politics and race relations to family and "man buns". By continuing the wave of moral outrage begun in You're Making Me Hate You, Taylor skewers contemporary America in his own signature style.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Hypocritical and a waste of money"

    Chastising people who group people because of race/stereotypes, then grouping people because of race and stereotypes....... Not a very well informed look at culture in America.

    "meh. not that great"

    it was okay. it's just one man's view on things so you can't hate him. definitely an uneducated view. his first 2 books are much better. Probably wouldn't suggest waiting a credit on it.

    "CMFT does it AGAIN"

    Corey knocks another smart, riveting, informative, book out of the park. His use of adjectives and the like are quite entertaining and keep you turning page after page

    "Ignorant"

    Well I guess just because you make good music doesn't mean you understand reality or America.
