Product description


Amanda Palmer joyfully shows a generation how to change their lives (Caitlin Moran, author of HOW TO BE A WOMAN and HOW TO BUILD A GIRL)

Amanda Palmer's generous work of genius will change the way you think about connection, love and grace (Seth Godin)

To read Amanda Palmer's remarkable memoir about asking and giving is to tumble headlong into her world. Immediately, you notice that her world is really different from yours and mine. Amanda's world is more open, more vulnerable, more fearless, more messy, more surprising, more dangerous, more rich with human encounters and exchanges at every imaginable level. At first, you find yourself thinking, "Goodness, what a crazy world that Amanda Palmer inhabits! How does she possibly endure it?" Then, gradually, as you read along, a doorway opens up in your heart, and you realize, "I want to live in a world exactly like hers". God willing, this book will show us all how to do it (Elizabeth Gilbert, bestselling author of EAT, PRAY, LOVE)

Amanda has a direct line with her audience - a lifeline for them and for her, the codependency all truly great performers surrender to . . . she's capable of anything, incapable of telling anything but the truth (Bono)

The Art of Asking is a book about cultivating trust and getting as close as possible to love, vulnerability, and connection. Uncomfortably close. Dangerously close. Beautifully close. And uncomfortably close is exactly where we need to be if we want to transform this culture of scarcity and fundamental distrust (From the foreword by Brene Brown, author of the bestselling DARING GREATLY)

A story about a life in one dollar bills, from statue to icon, where media doesn't matter, crowds do. Mandatory reading in the digital age, for aspiring artists and their doubtful parents (Nicholas Negroponte, Founder, MIT Media Lab)

From this beautiful, heart wrenching story of art comes an incredible account of the nature and future of commerce - or one part, certainly the most important part, of that bit that's new. Here's a truth that someday the economists might begin to grok, but which meanwhile will define everything that's interesting about how art and culture will thrive (Lawrence Lessig, author of FREE CULTURE)

This is the kind of book that makes you want to call the author up at midnight to whisper, 'My God. I thought I was the only one (Jenny Lawson, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of LET’S PRETEND THIS NEVER HAPPENED)

Book Description

Amanda Palmer expands on her phenomenally popular TED talk to encourage readers to perfect the forgotten art of asking in this New York Times bestselling book.
