Many are familiar with Tucker Max as the literary shock jock who chronicled hard-partying episodes of his life in books I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell, A**holes Finish First and Hilarity Ensues. All three books were New York Times Best Sellers.
In fact, he’s only the third writer (after Malcolm Gladwell and Michael Lewis) to ever have three books on the NY Times Nonfiction Best Seller List at one time. With the publication of Tiffany Haddish’s memoir, The Last Black Unicorn, a book he co-wrote, Tucker has now made the NYT best seller list four times.
“I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell” was also turned into a movie, which Tucker co-wrote and produced, and he was nominated to the Time Magazine 100 Most Influential List in 2009.
A few years after officially retiring from writing “fratire,” Tucker and his former employee, Zach Obront, founded Book In A Box, a publishing industry-disrupting company that helps business professionals turn their ideas into professionally-published books.
Acceleration Partners founder and Managing Director, Bob Glazer, used Book In A Box to write and publish his first book, Performance Partnerships. A fan of their team and their process, Bob sat down with Tucker to discuss his journey from bestselling book writer to company co-founder, trade secrets of the publishing industry and what his focus is in his new role at Book In A Box.
