First Read:
Amanda Palmer recounts being a street performer to a world-renowned artist, emphasizing the importance of accepting help when it's offered and building a closely-knit network based on personal communication, honesty, and trust.

Amanda Palmer is a musician, known for her work in the Dresden Dolls as well as her own solo work. She raised over a million dollars on Kickstarter for her latest album, which I’m a backer of, gave this excellent TED talk, and this book is a part memoir, part practical advice on asking for help. The audiobook, which I purchased, also contains songs between chapters.
