Revue de presse

PRAISE FOR SOPHIA AMORUSO

“#GIRLBOSS is more than a book and Sophia Amoruso is more than a purveyor of (fine and fly) garments. #GIRLBOSS is a movement—a philosophy for making your work life as fun, fresh and raunchy as your personal adventures. Sophia encourages us to own the qualities we've previously been ashamed of (bossiness, crudeness, petty thievery) in order to become the masters of our own destiny, financially independent and radically ourselves. I'm so in.”
Lena Dunham

“[An] appealing business memoir . . . Amoruso’s authenticity comes through here and is, no doubt, one of the many reasons for her remarkable success.”
Publishers Weekly

“Get motivated by Sophia Amoruso’s story . . . Her honest advice is useful for women in any industry.”
People StyleWatch

“among the glut of leadership books featuring paunchy old men in power suits, at least #Girlboss has a shot at standing out . . . it’s clear why young women admire her . . . #Girlboss is targeting the same readers as Sheryl Sandberg’s updated Lean In for Graduates . . . So buy #Girlboss for your daughter…”
Bloomberg Businessweek

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 / The Cut

“she addresses the highs and lows of her journey with an honesty that's refreshing in a management memoir . . . Amoruso's swagger in #Girlboss is contagious. The book is a decent model for all the girls -- nay, people -- who don't want to climb the traditional career ladder. Her path, though unconventional, might even inspire a couple of readers to try to heed her lessons and follow in her footsteps. But if there's one real takeaway from reading Amoruso, is that a pre-packaged rulebook for business success no longer exists.”
Fortune

“And while we love a feel-good story, we're even more inspired by Amoruso's drive and success . . . The easy-breezy blend of anecdotal tales and entrepreneurial advice makes for a fast, easy read . . . with lots of brash but actionable takeaways . . . Bottom line? That's some serious #GirlPower. Buy the book today, thank us the second you're done reading.”
SELF.com
 
“Young women could do worse than learn from her no-bullshit style and tireless work ethic.”
Flavorwire
 
“Sophia Amoruso, founder and C.E.O. of Nasty Gal, shares her irreverent and invaluable lessons in what can easily be described as a power manifesto for strong, ambitious young women . . . #GIRLBOSS leads readers to water but doesn’t force them to drink; rather than present a get-rich-quick manual or a list of business tips, 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.”
VanityFair.com

“The book is full of so many great insights even though she insists it isn’t a how-to guide. You should absolutely read the entire book, but I think Amoruso should be commended for her management tips. They are what make her a #GIRLBOSS.”
Levo League

“This sassy memoir inspires while also doling out career advice and entrepreneurial tips.”
Foam Magazine

“#GIRLBOSS is a must have for any young female entrepreneurs.”
The Turn Magazine

“Amoruso’s voice is accessible and charmingly self-deprecating without losing the effortless cool that characterizes her clothes . . . Amoruso’s scrappy capitalist narrative makes an admirable attempt to prove that navigating the system isn’t the same as endorsing it. Being anti-­establishment is the old cool. The new cool is playing by your own rules and still winning by their standards.”
New York Times Sunday Book Review

“[GIRLBOSS] is part memoir, part management guide and part girl-power manifesto. A sort of a Lean In for misfits, it offers young women a candid guide to starting a business and going after what they want.”
Washington Post

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

“[Sophia Amoruso is] a real-deal, born disruptor. In less than 10 years, she's turned that very same eBay vintage shop into a bona fide, $100 million global brand, through pure sweat; social-media savvy; and an eye for the fashion-forward, subversively sexy clothing women want to wear. And, yeah, great customer service. Now, sitting atop a mini-retail empire of over 350 employees, Sophia has become that rarest of things: a CEO who truly inspires and a patron saint of badass #girlbosses everywhere. Ahead, her thoroughly inspiring take on the unlikely rise of her scrappy brand, and why she'll always be an upstart at heart.”
Refinery29

“Sophia Amoruso spares no detail in #GIRLBOSS, the story of how she went from dumpster diving teen to founder and CEO of $100 million online retailer Nasty Gal.”
HarpersBazaar.com

“[Sophia Amoruso] takes the wisdom of CEOs before her (including Sandberg) and wraps it up with her biography, personal philosophy, and practical advice (e.g., don’t slander former employees on social media), all delivered with the same voice and attitude that has made her site so successful.”
New York Magazine / The Cut

“Sophia sprinkles to-the-point wisdom into the story of her life so far (she’s not afraid of a little tough love), and this book is a must read for women of all ages.  Who doesn’t love inspiration with a little kick in the butt?”
Real Simple / Lifestylers

“Everything Sophia touches has an air of cool, including her new book, #GIRLBOSS, which recounts the story of her first sale and her rise to retail stardom . . . The writing is witty and affable, like listening to a good friend tell you a story. And the advice runs the gamut, from writing a good cover letter, to owning your own style, to getting fired gracefully. #GIRLBOSS is an essential read for everyone who has realized that the path to happiness isn’t always a straight line.”
The Standard / Culture Blog

“While Amoruso's backstory is one we're pretty much all well-versed in by now (we mean, what else are Google deep-dives for?), it's still one that we just can't seem to get enough of.”
—The Coveteur

“With a new book #GIRLBOSS sweeping bookshelves everywhere, we're not the only ones taking notice . . . Amoruso muses on the sheer marketing power of #GIRLBOSS—as a book, as a movement—while highlighting the history of her company.”
LuckyMag.com

a witty and cleverly told account . . . It's this kind of honest advice, plus the humorous ups and downs of her rise in online retail, that make the book so appealing . . . Amoruso's unconventional approach to business and her experiences as a rebellious teen and creative outcast would also appeal to anyone's entrepreneurial side.”
Los Angeles Times

Présentation de l'éditeur

THE RUNAWAY NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
 
The first thing Sophia Amoruso sold online wasn’t fashion—it was a stolen book. She spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and dumpster diving. By twenty-two, she had resigned herself to employment, but was still broke, directionless, and working a mediocre day job she’d taken for the health insurance.

It was there that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Eight years later, she is the founder, CEO, and creative director of Nasty Gal, a $100 million plus online fashion retailer with more than 350 employees. Sophia’s never been a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she’s written #GIRLBOSS for outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is winding as all hell and lined with naysayers.

#GIRLBOSS includes Sophia’s story, yet is infinitely bigger than Sophia. It’s deeply personal yet universal. Filled with brazen wake-up calls (“You are not a special snowflake”), cunning and frank observations (“Failure is your invention”), and behind-the-scenes stories from Nasty Gal’s meteoric rise, #GIRLBOSS covers a lot of ground. It proves that being successful isn’t about how popular you were in high school or where you went to college (if you went to college). Rather, success is about trusting your instincts and following your gut, 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. 

As Sophia 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.”

Il est extrêmement stimulant!
A recommander à toutes les #girlbosses qui ont l'impression de ne pas rentrer dans les cases, et qui rêvent de monter leur boîte un jour.

Girls Can Take On the World Too 19 novembre 2014
Par Bertha - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Most girls are taught from a very young age that being pretty is their primary goal in life. Even in today's modern society, they tend to be steered toward non-management positions in the business fields. #GIRLBOSS certainly challenges that stereotype and offers great advice for budding, young entrepreneurs in the making. The book is decidedly geared toward young women and girls, but I think there are many lessons that virtually anyone can take from Sophia Amoruso's experiences. She talks frankly and candidly about her experiences pre-success and post-success. Her storytelling is fascinating and fun and certainly much more relatable for young women than most self-help books. There's no stuffy language or masculine aphorisms. Instead, Amoruso offers a decidedly feminine, edgy, and ultimately helpful writing style that will appeal to an otherwise untapped market.

In addition to the advice dispensed by Amoruso, I'm always looking for other ways to improve my outlook and my personal and professional relationships. Around the same time I purchased #GIRLBOSS, I also picked up 21 Things You Should Give Up To Be Happy The name of the book might not do it justice, but it provides 21 supremely helpful tips on how to improve your happiness and improve your relationships along the way. After all, much of our happiness is tied to our work life and personal life, and this book delves into how exactly to achieve that happiness. The concept behind it is so simple, but the advice inside is worth every penny. It also pairs well with #GIRLBOSS if you're looking for a way to make actionable changes in your lifestyle that can improve your career trajectories.

In any event, I've been recommending both of these books to everyone I know because of the frank, no-nonsense advice they provide. I've been using them almost as mini-guides for how to improve my life, and, so far, they have been working wonders. Beyond that, #GIRLBOSS is just an interesting story about a girl who turned a mediocre, dead-end job into being the CEO of a multi-million dollar fashion company. If that can't inspire you, then I don't know what will.

Memorable Storytelling + Heartfelt Advice 14 mai 2014
Par T. Hagan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
When I first heard Sophia was writing #GIRLBOSS, I honestly thought, "Yeah, you're an intriguing person, but it seems a little early to write an advice book." After reading it, I believe Sophia wrote the book now for a couple of reasons. One, just to put into words how astonished she is at what she has learned and what she has accomplished. Two, she actually had a s*** ton of advice from some crazy work experiences and business decisions that she really wanted to pass on.

#GIRLBOSS tackles some of the contradictions people face in their professional and personal lives - buckle down and work hard but don't give in to "The Man," be considerate to customers and talk to the shy person hanging out in the corner but don't be afraid to fire people in a straight-forward way, eschew over-priced fashion must-haves while wearing Yves Saint Laurent platforms, ignore traditional business mindsets but educate yourself to make smart business decisions.

It's hard to navigate these types of contradictions, but Sophia's blend of a strong, irreverent voice mixed with heartfelt concern and well wishes for readers allows her to give advice in a straight-forward and humorous manner without coming across as preachy.

On one hand, I feel like the book targets younger readers, such as recent high school and college graduates, but even as a 30 year old professional, I found #GIRLBOSS a refreshing, entertaining read among the sea of dry personal development books and business reads. #GIRLBOSS gives me hope that tomorrow's generation of business leaders will approach their professional journeys with a surer footing of who they are and a relentless tenacity to match.

Written for her fans; Not Written for business-owners. 6 juillet 2014
Par Jihan S. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I love Sophia Amoruso for the empire that she's built. Like her, I'm also femail e-tail business owner, so she's idol. She found her passion in life, worked hard at (she is darn good at it, and built an incredible business that has been very much copied on the internet. That's her story. However, this is actually a self-improvement book for young girls who were ONCE LIKE Sophia - as a youngster, she was a typical American teenager, somewhat of an outcast, did what she could in her part-time jobs "just to get by". And in this book, she speaks to readers who were JUST like her when she was their age - she's speaking to the average Nasty Gal customer in this book.

I was looking for more business advice from this book - hoping for some advice specifically on the topic of ecommerce. But this book was more about her life and how to improve your character as a young woman in a male-dominated world. It was also mainly written for her fans - 100s of 1000s of young Nasty Gal customers who worship the ground she walks on and wanted to know her story. That was understandable. And it's a great book for youngters who are in need of guidance. But if you're a business person looking to crack into that brilliant mind of hers, this book does not satisfy. If you want to better understand how Amoruso built Nasty Gal, look up some of her interviews on YouTube.

Message Fell flat - not worth the $$$$ 14 juillet 2014
Par tnmng00 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I never write reviews on my purchases but I was so pissed that I wasted twenty dollars on this book! As you may of already guessed, this book was a bit of a disappointment. First and foremost, this book should of been more aptly titled "A college students guide to starting a business or entering the workforce." I didn't draw much value from the advice given in this book because I think the content speaks to those who have little to zero experience working for others or working for themselves. Thus, it perhaps makes sense that Sophia A. dedicated a significant portion of her book explaining the do's and dont's of interviewing as well as the value of cover letters. This portion of the book was particularly infuriating to me because it spoke to me, as though the writer either assumed I was inexperienced or stupid. The basic lessons featured in this book on how to conduct an interview did not merit inclusion in what I thought was going to be a seemingly thought provoking and inspiring book specifically geared to intelligent, female working professionals who want to set themselves apart from the rest of the pack. Additionally, the author refers to published works by Malcolm Gladwell and Susan Cain. Although I loved the fact that she incorporated Gladwell and Cain's genius findings in her book she didn't make enough of a substantial parallel between the mention of their findings and her own experiences - this portion of the book much like most of the other chapters fell flat. Finally, I found the writing less than stellar. I'm not opposed to an informal style of writing but I felt as though I was reading a paper written by a high school student - perhaps Sophia's ghostwriter felt it was important to capture Sophia's tone of voice for the book but again the writing was a bit too elementary for my liking. Not claiming to be a great writer myself but I'm not publishing a book.

I was so excited to read this book as it was featured on NPR but unfortunately the book fell flat for all the reasons listed above. My motivation in purchasing this book was self improvement and not because I'm a consumer of nasty gal clothing/products. After checking out the nasty gal website it appears as though they pander to a key demographic and thus the array of clothing featured on their site appears as though they raided the Kardashian/Jenner closet. Thus, yet again I was disappointed. In the book, the author described her fashion line as eclectic and fashion forward. On the contrary, after taking a peek at the nasty gal website it left me with a lingering feeling that nasty gal is a lot more like forever 21 than the author claims- there is nothing distinctive about the nasty gal line and I am still baffled that this company generates millions in revenue. From what I can deduce nasty gal has become quite a force in the fashion world because it caters to a key demographic with disposable income (rich high school girls) mixed in with a dash of good timing that resulted in an explosion of business success.

I wish that Sophia had provided more detail in relation to how social media has and continues to be the force that generates the momentum for her business- how social media has helped her business identify potential consumers and retain existing consumers in an age where the attention span and commitment level of the general consumer is quickly dissipating.

I will surely pass this book on to a high school or college student - and even perhaps to anyone I know who wants to start their own business, with a few key warnings about the elementary nature of the content and writing. The book wasn't all bad. There were a few key points that will be useful to keep in mind. I LOVE that Sophia managed to accomplish such success by her own merit without the help of wealthy parents or an Ivy League degree. I also think it was great, on her part, to emphasize the importance of treating others in the workplace with respect - other than just your manager or high ranking executives.

She wasn't kidding when she said GIRLboss. Not for women. 27 août 2014
Par Lauren Niles - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I couldn't get past the first couple of chapters. While the book has a few great, inspiring one liners that are sure to be slapped with gold foil, a frame and a pin, that's about all it has. I felt like I was reading a seventeen year old girl's writing. I kept waiting to see "totes" and "adorbs" scattered throughout because that's the kind of rhetoric she uses.

Read if you're a teenager.
