The founder of Nasty Gal offers a sassy and irreverent manifesto for ambitious young women

At seventeen, Sophia Amoruso decided to forgo continuing education to pursue a life of hitchhiking, dumpster diving, and petty thievery. Now, at twenty-nine, she is the Founder, CEO, and Creative Director of Nasty Gal, a $100+ million e-tailer that draws A-list publicity and rabid fans for its leading-edge fashion and provocative online persona. Her story is extraordinary—and only part of the appeal of #GIRLBOSS.

This aspirational book doesn’t patronize young women the way many business experts do. Amoruso shows readers how to channel their passion and hard work, while keeping their insecurities from getting in the way. She offers straight talk about making your voice heard and doing meaningful work.

She’s proof that you can be a huge success without giving up your spirit of adventure or distinctive style. As she writes, �I have three pieces of advice I want you to remember: Don’t ever grow up. Don’t become a bore. Don’t let The Man get to you. OK? Cool. Then let’s do this.


Hey ya. You don't have to love me. 
You don't even have to like me. But you will respect me. 
You know why?                         Cuz I'm a boss!

And she is! Women like Sheryl Sandberg and now, Sophia Amaruso let us know that it's okay for women to let their voices be heard. Women are bossy, we have something to say!

Every Little Girl Can be a Leader - AMEN!

“From the food bank to making bank, #GIRLBOSS is the story of how I tried to escape capitalism—and ended up a CEO. At age 17, I was a dumpster-diving, shoplifting anarchist, but by 29, I’d turned Nasty Gal into a $100+ million business. #GIRLBOSS shares all the lessons I learned along the way. I can’t wait for you to read it.”
