Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

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)

Présentation de l'éditeur

'A #GIRLBOSS is in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it'*Winner of the 2014 Goodreads Choice Award for Best Business Book*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.

SOPHIA IS GOD (or at least she thinks she is) 19 août 2014
Par Annie Z - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I mean, ugh... I hate writing this in the face of so much fanfare, but felt like I needed to get some frustration off my chest.

The good:
+ This book is incredibly compelling. I finished the entire thing on one 4-hour flight on 3 hours of sleep. She (or her ghostwriter) is a great storyteller.
+ It truly is inspiring to read about a type of success not born of traditional privilege or ambition - I hope this book gets a lot of other young women out there to kick-start their dreams.
+ I really appreciate that she didn't focus on gender at all - this wasn't a "girl power!" book so much as it was an "entrepreneur power!" book written by a girl.

The less good:
+ I had never heard of Nasty Gal before I picked this up. Never mind that I'm a fashion-oriented mid-20s female - I'll assume this is on me. Sophia seems to think her company is God's gift to Earth - I found her completely presumptuous both in her evaluation of her own brand equity, and hyperbolic in her descriptions of Nasty Gal as a "huge, explosive success" (I live and work in Silicon Valley, where nonprofits get $20M in funding annually easy and companies grow from 1 to 350 employees in two years - let's have a sense of scale here.)
+ There was a consistent thread of put-downs and humblebrags in here, which happen to be two stylistic choices I absolutely deplore. Sophia claims to have done poorly in school because of the rigid system and been fired from jobs because she didn't care enough to try (essentially excusing herself from blame). She disses investors/VC culture, MySpace (the original foundation for her business), "boring" people with 9-to-5s, eBay, and several poor unnamed employees of hers. I get it - she loves herself. I just pray to God that no young woman reading this ever thinks it's ok to be this self-righteous.
+ She never once thanks anyone. She had some nice words about some coworkers, but she never acknowledges the support her family gave her even as she was essentially a parenting failure, never thanks her customers for driving awareness of her brand, never admits that some of her colleagues are at least part of the reason behind her company's success.
+ She plays the victim so much but never acknowledges any real failures (and now, hiring someone you thought was right for the role and then having to fire them isn't a failure - it's a rhetorical device used to assert your authority in this book.) She whines about "catty" retailers and petty competitors and never once steps down from her high horse to admit to the very real failures that affect every new business (like screwing up orders, dissatisfied customers, mis-spending capital, etc.)

In sum, I hope I never get stuck in an elevator with Sophia, but I'm glad my flight went by quickly.

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.

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.

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.

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.
