Product description

Review

The Cinderella of tech (New York Times)

[Sophia Amoruso] remains true to her vision to inspire and be inspired by cool girls. (“Ones to Watch: 11 Women Who Just Might Change the World” Elle)

Fashion's new phenom (Forbes)

Starkly brilliant (Huffington Post)

A millennial alternative to Lean In (The Cut New York Magazine)

A compellingly motivational read (The Telegraph)

The book you need in your life ... a simultaneously funny, warm, inspiring and straight-talking guide on how to go about getting shit done. (Marie Claire)

Deeply personal and filled with brazen, hilarious moments and cunning and frank observations, don't be surprised if you laugh out loud (SheerLuxe)

Amoruso's voice is accessible and charmingly self-deprecating without losing the effortless cool that characterizes her clothes...Being anti-establishment is teh old cool. The new cool is playing by your own rules and still winning by their standards (New York Times Book Review)

Part memoir, part management guide and part girl-power manifesto. A sort of Lean In for misfits, it offers young women a candid guide to starting a business and going after what they want (Washington Post)

A power manifesto for strong, ambitious young women . . . Amoruso teaches the innovative and entrepreneurial among us to play to our strengths, learn from our mistakes, and know when to break a few of the traditional rules (Vanity Fair)

If you read one book with a hashtag for a title this year, make it #GIRLBOSS (TechCrunch)

It's easy to get the sense, reading Lean In, that Sandberg is writing for women who've already made it. #GIRLBOSS is for those who haven't, which means it is aimed at people who have nothing to lose, which makes it a much riskier and more enjoyable manifesto (New York Magazine)

Filled with great advice for all millennial women ready to take over the world (Cosmopolitan)

She's a combination of spirited youthfulness, unconventionality, hard work, self-belief and determination, with an insane desire for authenticity. Wise beyond her years Sophia saw through her own BS at a pretty young age and trusted her instincts to make it big in the fashion world. In this book she highlights the internal battle between the devil and the angel - and shows you how to leave a negative past behind you. Quickly learning from mistakes, she jumps in with both feet, embracing her weaknesses and collaborating with talent. This concise and inspirational book can be read in just a few hours... Enjoy!

KICK A#$, practical, note tips and fun. Also a relief for not have found your place yet in the world yet because you have to create it yourself. An encouraging friend that tells it like it is and isn't greedy with her succes secrets.

Thought this was great. A quick read. A general read. It isn't a handbook for success but it is an example of not letting the world tell you, " you can't". Suitable for young and for seasoned who haven't given up on changing the world.
