For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

By the time she was 14, Chrissie Hynde knew she had to get out of Akron, Ohio. Her perfect '50s American childhood upturned by a newly acquired taste for rock 'n' roll, motorbikes and the ‘get down boys' seen at gigs in and around Cleveland - Mitch Ryder, the Jeff Beck Group, the Velvet Underground and David Bowie among the many.

This was what I was waiting for to hear her truth .staring at the pretenders whilst listening to their albums on vinyl.Enraptured by the voice of longing and passion ,adventurous and tender in my room when I got their first single.i knew I hers was the voice and power of a soul who was independent to the last . That group that independence and raw sensuality comes through every word .This is not a glamourous book ,it has passion and heartbreak of a woman and her band ,it's her journey.It's a life that was chosen and one drawn to and one that is understood by those who know that they were meant for greater things and cut their path and what they discovered along the way .I saw them in London in their prime ,the music driving like an unstoppable train,what they made was magic.I was conscious then that I would probably never see anything like it again.How right i was and how amazing is it to hear from the one person who can colour in the sketch and make this beautiful and tragic story come to life .Her life ,their life uncompromising ,it is what it is .Being a woman in a mans world and showing every one how its done .Chrissy Hynde is astounding as rich as her work ,her voice ,her lyrics.,her activisim .Be true to yourself find your tribe ,be loyal and never give up. That is what I got from her music and now this book delivers home that message . She paid her dues loved and lost and paid tribute to those that she and we will never forget.The message of love,of pain and belief.

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....
