Inhaltsangabe

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.

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.
