Tucker Max on Relationships, Fear of Monogamy and How to Shift From a Destructive Habit

25 comments

This is part two of a two part interview with Tucker Max.

If you didn’t  listen to the fist episode, check it out when you have a moment as it’s all about how to sell thousands of books and become a bestseller (like how he did hitting the New York Times list with three different books… at the same time!)  This episode is completely different.

Here, we discuss the emotional backstory that drove Tucker to succeed.  What he was really covering up with the alcohol, his writing topics, and all of the women in his life.

Tucker goes all the way from psychoanalysis, meditation, parent problems, lessons from his youth and much, much more. It’s all here.  Real and raw and I’m excited for you to experience it.

Huge thank you to Tucker Max for joining us on this 85th episode on the School of Greatness.
