Goddess, where to begin? I had so many realizations and self discoveries while lost in this book. I read this book while on a solo three month Europe trip that is about challenging myself to be uncomfortable and learning to be more secure in myself, and it was perfect timing. Amanda has so many amazing stories, and her writing makes you feel like you are experiencing her world too. I am striving for more empathy, the ability to receive without shame, more open heartedness and less hesitation, and The Art of Asking has been a wonderful building block in working towards those goals. I love how Amanda talks about trust and being seen, such basic humanness that is not discussed nearly enough. Even if you think you are a pro at asking, you will gain new perspective and insight from this book, and if nothing else you will enjoy the magical ride she takes you on.
No university or art school could teach the lessons learned in this book. I highly recommend this for every struggling artist no matter their craft.
Beautiful, heartfelt, host, useful, funny. You will gain wisdom and make a friend. Amanda is a gentle treasure. Read it, but it, give it away.
