The Art of Asking

by Amanda Palmer

The Art of Asking

Amanda Palmer

Overview

Many have gotten to know Amanda Palmer without ever exchanging a single word with her. Before starting her career as a musician, she stood still for hours on end – as a street performer. She'd paint her face white, put on a wedding dress and a black wig, and show off her abilities in different locations in Boston.

Since then, she's become a singer-songwriter, author, and half of the musical duo The Dresden Dolls. This book is about her struggle with asking for help, and how overcoming your fear of vulnerability can help you unlock your potential. Once Palmer learned to welcome the support of her fans, family, and friends, her life changed for the better - and so can yours.

"There's no 'correct path' to becoming a real artist. You might think you'll gain legitimacy by going to art school, getting published, getting signed to a record label. But it's all bullshit, and it's all in your head. You're an artist when you say you are."
