Um Hilfe zu bitten fällt uns oft schwer, weil wir Angst haben, schwach und bedürftig zu scheinen. Eine völlig falsche Sichtweise, meint Amanda Palmer.

Dabei hat sie erfahren, dass der ausgetauschte Gefallen stets für beide Seiten ein Gewinn ist. Wer um Hilfe bittet, zeigt sich zwar verletzlich, erhält aber auch die Chance, Vertrauen zu beweisen und Beziehungen aufzubauen. Amanda Palmer hat ein großes Buch über Menschlichkeit geschrieben; über Ängste und Schwächen und über die Kraft der Güte und des Vertrauens.
