Book review: The Art of Asking, by Amanda Palmer
I liked this book a lot. In fact, it may be the best thing I read in 2014. Why did I like it and I think you will too?
One: it's a good honest autobiography that touches on the lives of several very interesting persons. There is much there to be inspired by, and if you're not an artist type, it's a glimpse into a fascinating world.
Two: it has a message of self-acceptance that every creative person, whether you are a professional artist or not, should listen to.
Three: it will help you understand some of the new ways art can be shared, of you're interested in such things.
Four: because, how to say it? Because all we need is love, and Amanda Palmer has learned that and embodied it in her own life and career, and this is a truth we can all use.
Buy this book, read it, then buy more, or loan it to all your friends. Then make more friends and give it to them too.
