and#147;A #GIRLBOSS is in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it.and#8221;

and#160;

The first thing Sophia Amoruso sold online wasnand#8217;tand#160;fashionand#151;it was a stolen book. She spent her teensand#160;hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and dumpsterand#160;diving. By twenty-two, she had resigned herself toand#160;employment, but was still broke, directionless, andand#160;working a mediocre day job sheand#8217;d taken for theand#160;health insurance.

It was there that Sophia decided to start sellingand#160;vintage clothes on eBay. Eight years later, she is theand#160;founder, CEO, and creative director of Nasty Gal,and#160;a $100 million plus online fashion retailer withand#160;more than 350 employees. Sophiaand#8217;s never been aand#160;typical CEO, or a typical anything, and sheand#8217;s writtenand#160;#GIRLBOSS for outsiders (and insiders) seekingand#160;a unique path to success, even when that path isand#160;winding as all hell and lined with naysayers.

#GIRLBOSS includes Sophiaand#8217;s story, yet isand#160;infinitely bigger than Sophia. Itand#8217;s deeply personaland#160;yet universal. Filled with brazen wake-up callsand#160;(and#147;You are not a special snowflakeand#8221;), cunning andand#160;frank observations (and#147;Failure is your inventionand#8221;),and#160;and behind-the-scenes stories from Nasty Galand#8217;sand#160;meteoric rise, #GIRLBOSS covers a lot of ground.and#160;It proves that being successful isnand#8217;t about how popularand#160;you were in high school or where you went toand#160;college (if you went to college). Rather, success isand#160;about trusting your instincts and following your gut,and#160;knowing which rules to follow and which to break.

A #GIRLBOSS takes her life seriously without taking herself too seriously. She takes chances and takes responsibility on her own terms. . She knows when to throw punches and when to roll with them. When to button up and when to let her freak flag fly.and#160;

As Sophia writes, and#147;I have three pieces of advice I want you to remember: Donand#8217;t ever grow up. Donand#8217;t become a bore. Donand#8217;t let The Man get to you. OK? Cool.and#160; Then letand#8217;s do this.and#8221;

terrywho83, October 28, 2008 (view all comments by terrywho83)
There are some cool interviews and yummy looking photographs and is a great “coffee table book”. Maybe this will be a book that grows on me, rather than something that’s blown me away. But, I kind of wish it were more glossy. I was expecting to be drooling over the pages with a quickened heart beat. The interviews are fun and you get an inside look at how some of the top people in fashion think, and thus how they are successful. But the more interesting parts are with the twins and when they are talking about each other. I wish the book would have been more of an inspiration board with side notes so that readers could get a peak at how the twins think. Overall, I feel a little meh about the whole thing. I can’t put my finger on exact what it is, but I was expecting more?
