Dancing electronic violinist Lindsey Stirling shares her unconventional journey. A classically trained musician gone rogue, Lindsey is an example of independent, millennial-defined success: after being voted off the set of America's Got Talent, she went on to amass more than ten million social media fans, record two full-length albums, release multiple hits with billions of YouTube views, and to tour sold-out venues across the world. Lindsey is not afraid to be herself. In fact, it's her confidence and individuality that have propelled her into the spotlight. But the road hasn't been easy. After being rejected by talent scouts, music reps, and eventually on national television, Lindsey forged her own path, step by step. Detailing every trial and triumph she has faced until now, Lindsey shares stories of her humble yet charmed childhood, humorous adolescence, life as a struggling musician, personal struggles with anorexia, and finally, success as a world-class entertainer. Lindsey's story is a testimony that there is no singular recipe for success, and despite what people may say, sometimes it's okay to be The Only Pirate at the Party.

I completely agree with sasha!
This book is AMAZING and very heartfelt . She shared alot of interpersonal things with the world, reminding the world just because your famous or "self made" famous which i completely admire her for; that she and we are still human beings.
i laughed , i cried, i felt like i semi know her on a personal level with hos much she has revealed. she is truly is AN INSPIRING MUSICIAN.
i would recommend reading her book and continuing listening to her music , AND IF HAVE NOT YET, better start. you don't know what your missing !
