Description

Imagine standing on a box in the middle of a busy city, dressed as a white-faced bride, and silently using your eyes to ask people for money. Or touring Europe in a punk cabaret band, and finding a place to sleep each night by reaching out to strangers on Twitter. For Amanda Palmer, actions like these have gone beyond satisfying her basic needs for food and shelter - they've taught her how to turn strangers into friends, build communities, and discover her own giving impulses. And because she had learned how to ask, she was able to go to the world to ask for the money to make a new album and tour with it, and to raise over a million dollars in a month.

In The Art of Asking, Palmer expands upon her popular TED talk to reveal how ordinary people, those of us without thousands of Twitter followers and adoring fans, can use these same principles in our own lives.

This audio digital download includes a PDF featuring photographs and song lyrics.

fanFUCKINGtastic

I read (and listen to) books a lot...
The last one I read in one sitting was the last Harry Potter (and I had been waiting ages).

This was so raw and powerful I couldn't stop.

Thank you ever so much.

This. Is. Good. Art.

This book showes what to do when life gets tough. As Gaiman himself has said it "make good art."

If artists would take Gaiman's advice and created their art in the example of this book, then maybe the story of Amanda Palmer wouldn't seem so alien. And as a result we could have a world filled with stronger and healthier relationships between artists and their fans.

I hope every striving artist read this book and decide to take the leap and ask the world. This book opened my eyes and I will do my best to ask or at least notice when I turn away donuts someone is gifting me.

The pleasure of giving is all I want to do with my art, so I will try to not take it away from others. (Artist or not)

Thx, Amanda.

What a beautiful story and narration!

The story and the narration by Amanda herself is absolutely beautiful! She is genuine, authentic and at times very vulnerable... I'm impressed by her deep personality and views of life. Highly recommended!

A person that really understands where humanity is going

Wow, I remember I met Amanda when I was living in Sydney as the bride, listened to her music on JJJ radio now listened to her story here. This was a journey for me and taught me that asking is ok and not to be hung up on the reply. Once you ask you get AN answer and are able to move on. Never dwell or get hung up but just ask?! Thank you Amanda.

AFP at her best

If you could sum up The Art of Asking in three words, what would they be?

honest, intimate, touching

What did you like best about this story?

the story about the dog and the nail

What does Amanda Palmer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Amanda is a good story teller - her reading the book gives it a intensity that does not came across in the print version. Some parts of this book are so enticing it is almost impossible to escape the narrative - there were moments it feels she is present in the room.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

not sure yet - will have to re-listen - there are many moments like the part when AFP talks about homeless people and her teenage stories.

Any additional comments?

Probably the best read this year - it is insightful, personal and brutally honest without hurting anyone or anything. Cosmic!

GROSSARTIG!!!

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Es ist eines der allerallerbesten Hörbücher, die ich in den vergangenen Jahren gehört habe. Inhaltlich spannend, aber vor allem ungalublich toll gesprochen. Gänsehautmomente en masse!

Vom Fragen, Geben und Bekommen

Mit entwaffnender Offenheit erzählt die Vollblutkünstlerin Amanda Palmer aus ihrem Leben und von der Erkenntnis, dass Fragen eine Kunst ist, von der beide Seiten sehr viel haben. Sie macht das völlig ungekünstelt, und wir nehmen Teil am bunten, verwundbaren, mutigen Werdegang einer Frau, die ihre Kunst und ihr Leben in die Hände menschlichen Gebens und Nehmens gelegt hat. Das ist jede Minute fesselnd und so ehrlich, dass es weh tut. Auf die gute Art.

might not be what you are looking for

I bought the book without reading the reviews or really knowing what is it about... it's more a biography than practical advice...

Very real! I could relate to a lot!

I am stunned by Amandas openess describing her sometimes daily struggles with her "Fraud Police" This book inspires me believe in what I want in my life and to go do and get it! To create and let other create with me . I see now why asking makes me so vulnerable and that it is a gift we can give each other every day. The git of connectiin and to see and be seen! ××× Thank you Amanda! ♡

a gift

amanda palmer's reading is incredible. she makes her own book an adventure and you can really tell she is used to working with her voice. she reads her book like one long secret she wishes to share with her readers and fans, and it is truly beautiful.

this is worth it. if there were one book you could get on audible, this one should be it. i cannot say enough good things about this audiobook and amanda palmer herself.
