    It's overwhelmingly clear from the book that Sophia Amoruso is a hard worker. She's dedicated to her business, she's extremely talented at what she does, and I suspect she'd be pretty fun to attend a party with even thought she would probably make you wear silver leather pants. Tha...

    I had never even heard of Nasty Gal when I picked this e-book from the library. But the title seemed fun and I always enjoy reading business books - especially ones that tackle the unique issues that face women. But this? This is not that book. I'll say this - Sophia has done a g...

    So I mistakenly thought this was going to be about being a boss. It's really about the author, her life, her mistakes, what she's learned from them, and the meteoric success of her online company, Nasty Gal, which sells clothes. Certainly it's impressive that Amoruso became such a succ...

    Full disclosure: I kind of view audiobooks as cheating, and this was my first audio book. When Goodreads emailed me saying I could have a free audible version of #Girlboss because I had marked it as "to read" I jumped on it. I read Tina Fey's "Bossypants," and still regret not having g...

    While it was truly interesting to read about the creation of Nasty Gal and Sophia's atypical rise to success, and while I respect and admire anyone who makes something from nothing, gosh I wish she would have been a little bit more humble. And not so in your face with the WORK WORK WOR...

    I put off reading this book for a long time because #GIRLBOSS is the most vomit-inducing book title I can think of and now I have read it I wish I hadn't bothered. #GIRLBOSS is peculiar mix; it's a book that doesn't know whether it wants to be a memoir or if it wants to give busine...

    Sigh. This is written like a really long blog post. I completely disagree with her attitude about money and hard work and reward. I think putting something out to the universe and making it so is bullshit. I think different people have different ideas of success. I think people who cho...

    NO! NO NO NO! This book does not deserve any sort of award! Unless you are in 6th grade and have never spoken to anyone about your future, do not waste your time, money, brain power. This book is one of the most mindless, judgmental, condescending, self-inflating, poorly written book o...

    Ahem... This book was overly flippant on a lot of things. A lot of stuff sounded controversional. Some of it plain stupid. The approach to business felt as in the 'wring-them-and-kick-them-out' attitude. The 'I recognise the crazies during job interviews' approach is, well, irritating....

    4.5/5 #GIRLBOSS was just as fantastic as i expected it'd be. (and in a really teeny-tiny way, that disappointed me but, for the most part, i loved this novel.) this is a book that i would recommend to every human. never read non-fiction novels? great, go read this. don't care for...

    4.5 stars 1. #GIRLBOSS is written by someone who didn't go to college. Before you back away from this book, hear me out with my nine other reasons. 2. #GIRLBOSS is bad-ass, and inspires me to be a bad-ass myself. One who can conquer ANYTHING. 3. Sophia Amoruso is so hilarious. I ...

    I had such high hopes for this book, but it turns out that now I?ll be writing one of my only truly negative reviews on Goodreads? Sophia Amoruso has surely accomplished a lot with Nasty Gal, and I respect her work ethic and ability to achieve success with rough beginnings and l...

    I so wanted this to be good, but after reading the introduction, I knew that I was probably not going to enjoy it. After she addressed the issue of whether or not her book was a feminist manifesto by saying that she believes in "showing up and owning it" not "whining" for equality, I w...

    #GIRLBOSS is Sophia Amoruso's story about her wild childhood, unlikely and extraordinarily successful business venture and her treatise on how to be yourself and bring what is unique to you to your professional life. I googled Sophia after I finished this book and was dismayed to di...

    Funny, entertaining, sassy, sarcastic, and incredibly smart. Amoruso manages to bring her funny/sarcastic personality onto these pages while seriously teaching about what it means/takes to be a girlboss. I took so much from this book and I have a strong feeling I'll be rereading it onc...

    I have tremendous respect for her, for what she stands for, and for what she has built. But this book fell short on delivering something substantial. I realize that this was geared towards teens and adolescence so for them, I highly recommend it. But if you are close to Sophia's age, y...

    Actual rate 2.5 I liked it overall, I'll even apply some of the advices in my professional life. Also, the "Portrait of a #GIRLBOSS" sections, very empowering; thumbs up. But there were too many paragraphs and chapters that felt kinda out of place, repetitive and that contributed...

    I thought that perhaps I was a freak of nature until I read this book and realized that there is someone out there so much like me! Therefore, I found this read quite inspirational. Sophia Amoruso started her own business, now worth $100M, from scratch and pocket change. She never ...

    This was a mostly amazing book, I would recommend it to anyone, even if you are not a female entrepreneur. The author has a great outlook on life and the book inspires you to have more confidence in yourself, even if you feel like you are failing at what you think you should be doin...

    From the first page I knew I wasn't going to like this book. ("don't let the man get you! #girlboss!"... gag...) Beyond it being poorly written (sounds like a teenager's rambling life story), it doesn't have any true focus or offer any innovative or interesting advice. Most of the ad...

    For me, this book was perfect. It had so much to do with confidence, which is what I need right now, so it spoke to me. I know I'll read passages from it many times in the future and I'm so grateful it was given to me. I'd encourage all women to read it! ...

    Now I know this is a series on Netflix but before I dove into that.. well, I wanted to read the book way beforehand. After reading it I'm kind of hesitant going into to watch it.. but as long as I have wine and snacks.. I'll be good. #GIRLBOSS is about Sophia Amoruso. IT's her story...

    #GIRLBOSS follows Sophia Amoruso?s journey through developing a kick-ass, successful business and life. She?s inspiring and definitely offers a lot of sound advice for aspiring ?girlbosses?. Considering that this was written in 2014 I would love to read a more updated version. ...

    This was the most self involved piece of writing I have ever read. EVER. I only skim read it because, for the most part, I didn't care about this random woman's anecdotes about her life. Why was this written? Why? Let me discuss my main problem. Multiple times throughout the book, A...
