Episode 079: Tucker Max – Attracting Women & How To Write Your Book

**NEW SPONSOR**

This episode is brought to you by Mizzen+Main.  My newest favorite shirts are Mizzen+Main. I work out every day and I enjoy the feel of my workout clothes. These shirts feel exactly like my workout gear does. The 4 way stretch fabric is like no other dress shirt I’ve ever felt before. Originally I purchased one shirt to try them out. When someone told me they would feel like my workout clothes, I didn’t believe them. Then I ordered one… After feeling the shirt and wearing it, I immediately purchased 6 more button down dress shirts and two Henley’s. They are my best looking, best fitting, and certainly the best feeling shirts I’ve ever worn. I promise you will agree after trying one on.  A few Mizzen+Main shirts would make for a great gift for anyone who wears button down shirts.  After you try 1 or 3 out, send me a tweet @RyanHawk12 to let me know your thoughts!  When you go to check out, use the code “ryanhawk” for free overnight shipping or if you want to buy 3 shirts (which is what I do), use the code “ryanhawk3” and you will receive $50 off!

Tucker Max is probably the most blunt human being I’ve ever spoken to.  He will literally tell you exactly what he thinks at all times.  I can appreciate his fearlessness when it comes to being transparent and open.  This conversation/interview was one of the most challenging ones I’ve done throughout the entire podcast.  With that said, I really enjoyed having the opportunity to speak with Tucker.  I’ve read his books and think he’s incredibly talented.  It’s been very interesting to see the growth in him as a person over the last 10 years.

Tucker has written three #1 New York Times Best Sellers, which have sold over 3 million copies worldwide. He is credited with being the originator of the literary genre, “fratire,” and is only the third writer (after Malcolm Gladwell and Michael Lewis) to ever have three books on the New York Times Nonfiction Best Seller List at one time.

He received his BA from the University of Chicago in 1998, and his JD from Duke Law School in 2001. He currently is the CEO of “Book In a Box,” A company that helps you “Get your book out of your head.”  They help people get their books written without having to type a word or deal with a publisher. Tucker lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife Veronica and son Bishop.
