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.

    "The Must-Read for any entrepreneur with heart."

    I'm a weirdo. I'm also an entrepreneur who works her butt off despite people pestering me constantly with; 'when are you gonna get a real job.' Which is why this book was SO revolutionary to me. Sophia's journey from broke-ass freegan hunting for vintage to the CEO of a million dollar company is inspiring, impressive & amazingly down-to-earth. This book reads like your best friend giving you invaluable advice & encouragement, whilst making you laugh & recognising that you're a 21 century girl with WIFI so you're not an idiot. Conclusion; you need this book in your life! 💡

    "Great first half."

    Enjoyed the first half, very insightful and interesting read. Second half was more a how to guide on cv writing & interviewing & how not to behave at a job interview. Snooze fest.

    "Did not finish"

    This is a boastful book, full of gratuitous swear words (seriously, it's unnecessary and not cool).

    Boasting about shoplifting. Boasting about several menial jobs. Good for you, Sophia. It's just not my cup of tea. The fact that the narrator sounded like a teenager didn't help.

    And while I'm getting things off my chest, I find referring to women as girls deeply patronizing.

    "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.
