In theNew York Timesbestseller that theWashington Postcalled ';Lean Infor misfits,' Sophia Amoruso shares how she went from dumpster diving to founding one of the fastest-growing retailers in the world.Amoruso spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and scrounging in dumpsters for leftover bagels. By age twenty-two she had dropped out of school, and was broke, directionless, and checking IDs in the lobby of an art schoola job she'd taken for the health insurance. It was in that lobby that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay.Flash forward to today, and she's the founder of Nasty Gal and the founder and CEO of Girlboss. Sophia was never a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she's written#GIRLBOSSfor other girls like her: outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is windy as all hell and lined with naysayers.#GIRLBOSSproves 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.' Los Angeles Times';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';#GIRLBOSS is more than a book . . . #GIRLBOSS is a movement.' Lena Dunham
