"Whether it's people's rude behavior in restaurants and malls, the many indignities of air travel, eye-searingly terrible fashion choices, dangerously clueless drivers, and — most of all — the sorry state of much modern music, Taylor's humor and insight cover civil society's seeming decline — sparing no one along the way, least of all himself. "Holding nothing back and delivered in Taylor's inimitable voice, 'You're Making Me Hate You' is a cathartic critique of the strange world in which we find ourselves." During an appearance on the Nerdist podcast, Taylor stated about "You're Making Me Hate You": "It's fucking brutal. It's just me basically trashing everyone." Taylor said that his original title — which the publisher refused to allow him to use — was "You're Making Me Hate You (Or How Justin Bieber Sucked A Million Dicks To Make His Money)". The "You're Making Me Hate You: A Cantankerous Look At The Common Misconception That Humans Have Any Common Sense Left" book cover can be seen below. Taylor's last book, "A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Heaven", was published in the summer of 2013 and landed at No. 23 on the New York Times "Hardcover Non-Fiction" best sellers list. His first book, 2011's "Seven Deadly Sins: Settling The Argument Between Born Bad And Damaged Good", also made the list at No. 26. The singer told The Pulse Of Radio in 2013 that his third book would be a collection of columns he'd written over the past decade for U.K. magazine Rock Sound. It is not clear whether this is that book. Taylor also said he plans to write a novel. Taylor is currently on the road with SLIPKNOT, who are touring in support of the band's latest album, ".5: The Gray Chapter".
