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.

Captivating From Start To Finish

Love Corey's outlook on life and politics.
There are many of us who don't blindly follow one ideal and Corey reasons in this great read why he feels the way he does giving us different answers and new questions and points of view about modern politics in not only the USA but most of the world.
Read it, doesn't matter which political or social back ground you are from he will open your mind to other ways of looking at the struggle wether you like it or not and with good old fashioned humour.
