I'm already such a huge fan of self-help books and memoirs, but Sophia Amoruso really took things to the next level with #Girlboss
From her hilariously crude humor to her no-bull-shit approach to life and advice, Sophia blew my mind from cover to cover.
This book was out of the box as both a memoir and a self-help book; straying for the usual constraints of both genres. As a memoir it was all over the place, telling stories in no particular order and following as many rabbit trails as a thought train. As a self-help book it failed miserably; giving neither concise advice or steps to success.
All of that being said, it was the best I've read of either.
Her stories, while dotting randomly along her timeline, were told in groupings that made points, and her advice was simple: Do the shit that needs to be done and do it well. There was no great secret to success, no unheard secret. Simply; put in the work and results will come.
This book inspired me in ways other books have been unsuccessful in doing in the past, giving me not only tools to approach life with, but a sort of yearning to work harder and to pursue things with every fiber of my being.
If you're sick of old men telling you the 5 steps to success that seem to only work for old men, pick up a copy of #Girlboss and let Sophia Amoruso take you on the journey of a lifetime.
