How does the four-time New York Times best-selling author Tucker Max feel about almost every bit of advice when it comes to defining success as an author, books on being an effective writer and the idea that it doesn’t matter how good your book is, just that you should have one? Complete BS.
Tucker goes deep into what the true purpose of writing a book should be for just about any genre of non-fiction author. He reveals the truth behind the power of self-publishing, how to land a traditional publishing deal, and the real way to be featured on the New York Times bestseller list.
Listen in as Matt and Joe learn more about the highest and best use of a book, their time and how to shave close to 2,000 hours of the time it takes to write a prescriptive non-fiction book if you have one in you waiting to get it. If you’re ready to get serious about seriously getting your message out there, be sure to check out this episode with Chandler Bolt and this advice from Matt and Joe on how they wrote a book in a weekend.
We can’t make your book great but we can make it the greatest possible book you have in you.” – Tucker Max
