The Art of Asking: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Let People Help
Author: Amanda Palmer
Musician Amanda Palmer raised more than a million dollars from 25,000
backers. In learning that many people are afraid to ask for help, and it
paralyzes their lives and relationships, she explores these barriers in
her own life and in the lives of those around her, and discovers the
emotional, philosophical, and practical aspects of “the art of
asking.” Part manifesto, part revelation, this is the story of an
artist struggling with the new rules of exchange in the
twenty-first century, both on and off the Internet.
