Description
She spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and scrounging in dumpsters for leftover bagels; by age 22 Sophia Amoruso was broke, directionless, and checking IDs in the lobby of an art school, a job she'd taken for the health insurance. It was in that lobby that Amoruso decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Within ten years she had become the founder and executive chairman of Nasty Gal, a $25 million-a-year fashion retailer with more than 400 employees, named "Fastest Growing Retailer" in 2012 by Inc. magazine. Amoruso was never a typical CEO, or a typical anything, she notes. She wrote this business memoir for other girls like her—outsiders (or anyone) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is windy as all hell and lined with naysayers. #GIRLBOSS proves that being successful isn't about where you went to college or how popular you were in high school; it's about trusting your instincts and following your gut, knowing which rules to follow and which to break, when to button up and when to let your freak flag fly.

"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."—LATimes

"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."—Vanity Fair
