Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged downloadable, audiobook edition of #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, read by Sarah Jes Austell. The first thing Sophia Amoruso sold online wasn't fashion. It was a stolen book. At age 17 she was a dumpster-diving, shoplifting anarchist. By 29 she was the founder and CEO of Nasty Gal, a $100 million-plus fashion empire.
Filled with brazen wake-up calls ("You are not a special snowflake"), frank observations ("Failure is your invention"), and behind-the-scenes stories from Nasty Gal's meteoric rise, #Girlboss is more than just Amoruso's story; it is a book for anyone seeking a unique path to success - even when that path is winding as all hell and lined with naysayers.

Rather patronising and SO American

There was something about Amoruso's ideas and lessons that were patronising and humble bragging. It's very peppy and grey to get yourself pumped up in lots of ways, but I also thinks she took it a little too far sometimes.

The narration, however, was superb.

Irritating Montone Narration

What disappointed you about #Girlboss?

I'm sure your a nice person but I couldn't continue listening to the monotone American twang aimed at a 20something audience passed chapter 8 and requested a refund. Sorry. The life/business journey was the draw to this audio, the energy in the narration wasn't there for me. The timeline jumped and other synopsis from people involved with Nasty Girl (name of Girlboss company) were dropped in without a clear flow and I was left thinking "what have I just missed"? I spent time jumping the audio back to relisten and relisten to comprehend, rather than reaffirm, and still not getting it I just gave up and went to the Netflix adaptation which is 100 times better.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

That I am that Girlboss just older...much older!! The parallels of my journey to discovering and selling vintage are, I am sure, the standard blue print experience for all Girlbosses around the world who have an "oh my God I've sold it for how much" moment! Who then rush around to find the next big ticket item and have visions of becoming a dominating online seller! Life's obstacles inevitably stop this from happening quickly so this story will resonate with lots of people out their on the 'rag to riches' journey. To those starting up and who haven't already done their own market research, if you can withstand the monotone voice, this audio may well be of great, great benefit to you, just not me.

Would you be willing to try another one of Sarah Jes Austell’s performances?

No

What character would you cut from #Girlboss?

The main character, as I say, is me, in another form but older, and into house music, rather than heavy metal!

Any additional comments?

Stopping this audio and going straight to the Netflix adaption, I found myself watching episode after episode without being annoyed and irritated. The story of one persons "ah ha" moment and the struggles that follows to do what they are happy doing, rather than what society thinks they should be doing, makes this a compelling, motivational and inspirational watch, but not listen! Sorry. Hope you continue to be extremely successful with your business.

Not for me.

The hype for this book was the reason I excitedly bought this book. After a few chapters, I tried to return it but couldn’t and this decided since I’ve spent the money, I now have to finish the book.

The story is exciting, a girl came from nothing and made it big, she believed in herself, backed herself and made it work.

I didn’t like the openly narcissistic tone. Her clear lack of respect for others and felt a little bit of humility would go a long way.

This book and I, should never have been a match. I was hoping that it would be fun and quirky, but alas.

It’s a self help book. Or how she helped herself book, I guess, suited to a much, much les cynical generation.

I still either would prefer to swop this book, or have my money back as seeing it in my library makes me a little sad that I fell for ‘the hype’.

A book to remember

I related so much to this book and I'll defiantly always remember it and no doubt always re-listen to it. I'm a 16 year old girl and I don't read books, but as my first book (wish my mum brought me) I absolutely loved it!!!
