#GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso

#GIRLBOSS is Sophia Amoruso's memoir/advice book on how she went from being a dumpster diver to the founder and CEO (which she stepped down from in January of 2015) of Nasty Gal (a multi million dollar company). Sophia includes the terrible jobs she's had, her (at times cringe worthy) past anti capitalism and anti establishment rebellion (not that there is necessarily anything wrong with a little rebellion, but when your "feminist" response to a guy opening a door for you is "I'd refuse, taking insult" that's cringe worthy, which Amoruso acknowledges), and how her experiences impact how she runs her business and deals with others in the business world. While I occasionally found the #GIRLBOSS thing gimmicky (it would be fine as just the title, but whenever she uses the word or calls the reader girlboss she does it in all caps with a hashtag). However, I was entertained and found Amoruso's unconventional rise to a high powered business woman quite interesting.
