“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
Amoruso's writing is witty and acerbic, but at the core she is authentic. Such brutal self deprecating honesty is refreshing from a business memoir. Her advice is useful for any industry and applicable to those with their own company or those working a 9 to 5. The entrepreneurial advice offered in "#GIRLBOSS" provides innumerable takeaways. I dogeared just about every other page. The memoir is a fast, easy read, but with genuine usable advice.
“[GIRLBOSS] is part memoir, part management guide and part girl-power manifesto.” Washington Post

“Dunham’s book is one of those rare examples when something hyped deserves its buzz. Those of us familiar with her wit and weirdness on HBO’s Girls will experience it in spades in these essays. . . . There are hilarious moments here—I cracked up on a crowded subway reading an essay about her childhood—and disturbing ones, too. But it’s always heartfelt and very real.” New York Post
“We are comforted, we are charmed, we leave more empowered than we came.” NPR
