Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable, audiobook edition of #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, read by Sarah Jes Austell. The first thing Sophia Amoruso sold online wasn't fashion. It was a stolen book. At age 17 she was a dumpster-diving, shoplifting anarchist. By 29 she was the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal, a $100 million-plus fashion empire.

Filled with brazen wake-up calls ("You are not a special snowflake"), frank observations ("Failure is your invention"), and behind-the-scenes stories from Nasty Gal's meteoric rise, #Girlboss is more than just Amoruso's story; it is a book for anyone seeking a unique path to success - even when that path is winding as all hell and lined with naysayers.

    "Rather patronising and SO American"

    There was something about Amoruso's ideas and lessons that were patronising and humble bragging. It's very peppy and grey to get yourself pumped up in lots of ways, but I also thinks she took it a little too far sometimes.

    The narration, however, was superb.

    "Easy to listen to and motivates"

    I really liked the book. It's not a typical story of a business but instead, talks about magic and such. This makes the book interesting and easy to listen to. However, I felt like it ended in the middle. Was expecting a little more, a climax and something deeper that "go do it girlboss" at the end.

    "It's not just the same crap you've read before"

    I was apprehensive about buying this. I thought it'd be the same self help/ fluffy motivational crap I've read before. It's not. Well... Not quite anyway. It's honest. Sweary. Modern and relatable. It's the right advice for the new age of young independent minded women and if you're just starting to climb the career ladder. Well worth a read.

    "Disappointed"

    So disappointed, I'd heard such good things about this, but it didn't measure up. The whole book was pretty much a promotion for Nasty Gal, so much so she had to get the brand name in every single line. There weren't many tips either, just the author talking about herself.

    "Very common sense and Braggy, better for young teens"

    Let me start by saying I didn't hate the book, it was just not as good as I was hoping it would be. I felt that all of the advice and 'inspiration' was very basic and common sense 'work hard, be yourself' and the general theme of the book felt like a memoir of 'look how good I am, I am better than other business owners'. I appreciate she has worked hard and deserves to brag but to me the tone was very negative to other people in the insinuation that other people are not successful because they just did me try as hard as her. She seemed very negative about her school peers, parents, other eBay sellers and professionals in her industry. I do however think her stories were interesting and could be inspiring to a young teenager, I would only recommend to those between 13-16

    "Men should read it too!!"

    My fiancée read this and she said it related to me so well, so I read it and I was really impressed by it. I think guys could learn a lot from this and is a fresh perspective compared to normal business books.

    Great read!! Thanks

    "As a young adult, I loved it"

    The whole message in the book is something I think all the young 20-something women of the world should know about. Sophia's story is a real inspiration and it does make you feel like anything is possible. Her journey to being who she is today is so simple, practical - she did regular everyday stuff. The narrator's voice is also fitting considering the title of the book. loved every second of it. will definitely be listening again.
