If you already follow Amanda Palmer, author of The Art of Asking, on Twitter, then you probably know that lately she’s been busy grieving, battling Lyme Disease, recording with her father, and preparing to have her first baby with her husband Neil Gaiman. So we were incredibly pleased that she took time out from her nonstop, go-go-go life, to answer a few questions for us via email.
We’ve chosen The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer as our August Book of the Month. Filled with energetic music, intimate stories of her life, and down-right-good advice, there’s a little something for everyone in this memoir.
Politics are ruled by narratives, whether it be on television or in print, so it’s essential to supplement and challenge common knowledge by listening to people’s own stories.
This month’s book of the month is subtitled “Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions”. The name really says it all, doesn’t it? We’ll bring you great content about it all month, as well as offer it for $9.95. That’s 50% off!
Malcolm Gladwell chases whatever economic curiosity tickles his fancy. Sometimes it’s the birth month of hockey players. Sometimes it’s the story of David and Goliath. Sometimes it’s how it took both Bill Gates and The Beatles 10,000 hours to achieve mastery over their crafts. Whatever it is, it’s always fascinating.
Each month, we’re selecting a “book of the month”—think of it like an online book club that lasts all month long. First up, we’ve chosen Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Dr. Carol S. Dweck, a great resource for parents, athletes, artists, business people, and those who just want to make a change in their lives. And it’s 60% off through the end of April!
