My rating: 4 of 5 stars
#GIRLBOSS –the all caps make the title a little intimidating and loud, but the hashtag/pound makes it tacky (probably not tacky the time it was published). This book won an award in Goodreads and its strong-looking cover made me want to read it. My friends looked at my book wishlist and gave me this for my birthday.
I have no idea what this book was all about so I didn’t give any high expectations. At first, I was annoyed with the introductions and the first part of the book. “Is this a book or a company catalogue?” ran to my head. I hate how she relentlessly talks about her brand Nasty Gal. Nasty Gal this, Nasty Gal that. I haven’t heard of it. I’m in a different continent, anyway. After some more pages, her words became inspiring. Her experiences became interesting. She gives a lot of advices and shares some experiences. This woman underwent to a lot of experiences. I suddenly understood her and kept up with her bragging rights. I think she deserves it.
This book is not about business. It is not about her whole life.
This book is a glimpse of her milestones in life. This book is like a pep talk or a friend chat. You didn’t know you need it.
