little biased so feel free to take everything from this point forward with a grainf saltI won t bother with a short summary as this book has gotten enough press and reviews from readers alike that that just seems redundant What I will say is that having worked with Sophia firsthand and having accompanied her Game Seven on what was Nasty Gal s second buying trip ever her work ethic is a cut above the rest she eats sleeps and breathes Nasty Gal always has and probably always will There are parts in the book where she may come across a bit lofty but she s just telling it like it is and not

issuef whether Drinking Water Safety or not her book was a feminist manifesto by saying that she believes in showing up andwning it not whining for euality I was pretty much soured Argonauta: Peripecias modernas entre el océano y el cambio climático (Spanish Edition) on everything else she had to say But I persevered And while there were some good partsf the book she does have some interesting things to say about venture capitalism and hiring and firing there were so many Best Laid Plans AssassinShifter other things that made me want to throw the book against the wall in abject frustration For a book that purports to be about women who don t take themselves too s 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

the Russian fin de siècle or well written enough to tell Nice thing its short and has pictures So I finished it in a day and movednto something far better I put Demography is Politics off reading this book for a long time because GIRLBOSS is the most vomit inducing book title I can thinkf 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 Il mistero del London Eye or if it wants to give business advice Mostf Sophia Amoruso s memories are irrelevant and self absorbed with humble brags littering the pages Sophia constantly reminds readers Lady Caligula of the meteoric risef Nasty Girl and how her Americana own profile has risen with it not to mention all that money she is making and how she gets congratulatedn a daily basis and then she reels TITLE off a listf achievements just in case we didn t already realise how successful she is I don t doubt Sophia probably has some wise words to share

Now She s bviously creative and Hezbollah obviously hard working But I don t know who this book is written for It is mainly biographical which is fine but then has these girlboss lessons that made me cringe One page will assume you ve never put together a decent resume and then a few pages later it s giving you advice about how you can t be friends with your direct reports It seems to assume that I have no business experience and am in chargef people mainly because that s what Sophia dealt with absolutely no business experience Honored Guest Stories or formalized business education and was in chargef her Orcs et Gobelins own business Which is awesome for her but rare thatthers will go Florence of Arabia on that sortf girlboss trajectory Also it s extremely difficult to read the book and she s mentioning that in meetings she gets annoyed when people don t talk to her directly because they assume she doesn t know what she s talking about but then says she Guns of the Timberlands often makes people repeat themselves a numberf times until she understands the business concepts because she has no training but she s the CEO so she has to understand I know she got where she is by not going to business school but maybe she could look into a little bit High Five of formal training It s not an employees job to give you a crash course in topics they learned in their MBAI think I would have enjoyed this if it was just a straight biography and gave up the pretensef telling people how to be girlbossesI also googled Nasty Gal after reading the book and came upon a Glass Door page where the company is rated VERY low in employee satisfaction and a trustpilot page where it also is rated very low in shopper satisfaction It made it seem as if the author lacks awareness about her company This is not Lean In for a younger generation It s verwhelmingly 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 That being said this book just didn t do it for me Amoruso neglects the fascinating elements f her story like the fact that she went from being the youngest person at a San Francisco Marxist book club and eating dumpster bagels to being a CEO with a brand new Porsche I don t mean to slam her for changing her mind Gramm.it : Grammatica italiana per stranieri con esercizi e testi autentici on capitalism but it would have been very interesting and pretty informative to see exactly how that transition happened and whether she thinks that is appropriate for everyone Instead we get vague piecesf advice like don t bad talk your boss Three Maids for a Crown on social media after you re fired There s a chapter thatutlines the importance Lives of Roman Christian Women (Penguin Classics) of using sigil magic to ensure your progress through ranks that felt totallyff the wall The The Tao of Bill Murray Real Life Stories of Joy Enlightenment and Party Crashing off the wall ness does work for her sometimes especially within the contextf a business book Sheryl Sandberg certainly isn t telling you about the Halloween she dressed as a 70s Blaxploitation character and tried "TO BEAT UP HER BOYFRIEND "beat up her boyfriend s stories and how they helped her become a better person are silly and illuminating I just wish there were Badlands of them I had such high hopes for this book but it turnsut that now I ll be writing Men at Arms onef my Bloud Count only truly negative reviewsn GoodreadsSophia Amoruso has surely accomplished a lot with Nasty Gal and I respect her work ethic and ability to achieve success with rough beginnings and little formal education However I expected this book to relate to those in her generation instead she turns Beneath the Surface Killer Whales SeaWorld and the Truth Beyond Blackfish out to be yet another naysayerf the Millennial generation writing them Bloodraven off as lazy and spoiled For someone in her early thirties with a lotf life left to live she Undressed by the Earl often puts herself upn a pedestal and talks down to readers taking herself seriously than necessary Also she seems frustratingly lacking in self awareness and empathy she Greene, G: Stamboul Train often writes as though everything she has earned is wholly deserved and that the universe provided what she waswed without honestly acknowledging that many Geschichte des Osmanischen Reiches out there who have likely worked harder and longer than her haven t gotten nearly as much success For example atne point she writes about how bringing children to a job interview is an immediate turn Malsorja off for her does she not realize how many single parents in poverty cannot afford childcare How else are they supposed to make money to provide for their family This isnly Tahdzib Syarh Ath Thahawiyah one instanceut The Establishment And How They Get Away with It of many where she lacks the ability to relate to those less fortunate than herself In fact she spends a whole chapter refuting the ideaf luck and claiming that her positive thinking brought pportunities to her nice thought but it comes across as entitled and na veWhile there are moments f amusing anecdotes and inspiring stories in general it seems that Amoruso has little than tired Bernstein Teil 1 old clich s toffer in terms I Spy the Illuminati Eye of business advice I am ALWAYS in the mood for reading some empowering and successful stories about
