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.
