Publisher's Summary

Fresh, funny, and fearless, The Middle Finger Project is a point-by-point primer on how to get unstuck, slay imposter syndrome, trust in your own worth and ability, and become a strong, capable, wonderful, weird, brilliant, ballsy, unf--kwithable you.

"Don't worry, this isn't a book about God, nor is it a book about Ryan Gosling (second in command). But it is a book about authority and becoming your own." (Ash Ambirge)

After a string of dead-end jobs and a death in the family, Ash Ambirge was down to her last $26 and sleeping in a Kmart parking lot when she faced the truth: No one was coming to her rescue. It was up to her to appoint herself. That night led to what eventually became a six-figure freelance career as a sought-after marketing and copywriting consultant, all while sipping coffee from her front porch in Costa Rica. 

She then launched the Middle Finger Project, a blog and online course hub, which has provided tens of thousands of young "women who disobey" with the tools and mindset to give everyone else's expectations the finger and get on your own path to happiness, wealth, independence, and adventure.  

In her first audiobook, Ash draws on her unconventional personal story to offer a fun, bracing, and occasionally potty-mouthed manifesto for the transformative power of radical self-reliance. Employing the signature wit and wordsmithing she's used to build an avid following, she offers paradigm-shifting advice along the lines of: 

  • The best feeling in the world is knowing who you are and what you're capable of doing.
  • Life circumstances are not life sentences. If a Scranton girl who grew up in a trailer park can make it, so can you.
  • What you believe about yourself will either murder your chances or save your life. So why not believe something good?
  • You don't need a high-ranking job title to be authorized to contribute. You just need to contribute.
  • Be your own authority. Authority only works as long as you trust that someone smarter than you is making the rules.
  • The way you become a force is by being the most radically real version of yourself that you can be.
  • You only have 12 f--ks a day to give, so use them wisely.

Critic Reviews

"I f*cking love a woman who knows what she wants and how to get it—and even better, is willing to share her secrets so we can all get ours too. Ash Ambirge is a whole mood, and trust me: you want to be in it." (Sarah Knight, New York Times best-selling author of The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck)

"If you don’t believe in yourself, who will? Ash is here to help you see that you have more chances to make a ruckus than you ever thought possible." (Seth Godin, author of This Is Marketing)

"Every woman who has felt even an iota of dissatisfaction in her life needs to read this book. Ash’s insight and wisdom is a gift to us all." (Laura Jane Williams, author of Our Stop

Mindblowingly relatable and tragically honest

ASH is a GODDESS. I loved this book so much and I will absolutely have these words in my head for years to come. "NEVER STOP FOLLOWING YOUR MOST DANGEROUS IDEAS." I hope to be lucky enough to connect with this Author someday. Her words have given me the motivation and comfort I have needed all 29 years of my life, after growing up in poverty and abuse much as she did. This is a highly recommended book for the WOMAN who feels STUCK by her own insecurities, fears, doubts, and all the "you'll never do that" sneers she ever heard. PLEASE GET THIS BOOK. You will not be sorry. And you will for sure not want to stop listening.

Buy it❗️

Drop everything and read this book ‼️⠀

But really DO IT‼️⠀

Ash is me, she is in my head, my thoughts and my heart❣️(with less vodka)⠀

Is is a book for women on the verge of a pivot to entrepreneurship, hate your fucking 9 to 5, wondering how to defer student loans one more time and on a verge of a breakdown❗️⠀


I literally finished this book, could NOT turn it off. Just couldn’t. ⠀

Ahhhh seriously refreshing. I felt like I was talking, like Ash was in my head, heart and brain. ⠀

This is only the 2nd book in years - that could not turn off. ⠀

This solidified my mission, my path, and my course.⠀
Although I know I was - BUT now I feel more confident.⠀

There are practical lessons & ideas, funny ones, emotional ones, harsh ones and all the real talk you need. ⠀

All mixed in with a perfect amount of F bombs 💣 ⠀

Ahhhh didn’t want this book to end - like your favorite movie. ⠀

Stop whatever you’re doing, BUY THIS BOOK NOW, then immediately put your earbuds in and listen!

As women, we are trained to sit still and look pretty. Be grateful. Don’t rock the boat.

And it makes us beyond miserable, complacent, and hating our life. But what other choice is there?

Ash Ambirge shows you that you not ONLY have a choice, but you have the whole book of matches to light it all on fire and rise from the ashes like a phoenix goddess!

I’ve listened to Chapter 19, and I actually HIGHLIGHTED pieces in the physical book to correlate with all the clips I saved from Audible. Little sticky tabs and all. I don’t do that! I’ve NEVER done that! Not even text books in college. Defacing a book is the biggest sin to me!

But The Middle Finger Project AND Ash Ambirge is a text book for life! No, a guidebook. One that should be opened and read so much the binding falls apart. With written side notes, sticky tabs, marked pages and then passed from friend to friend like the traveling pants.

But be warned: after reading you may walk away from your mundane, pumpkin-spice, cubical life like the joker walking away from the exploding hospital with your nose in this book, and your finger in the air.

And guess what, it will absolutely be the best thing you've ever done for yourself.

This book should be required reading for every human on this planet

Ash’s unique and powerful voice will forever be embedded in my brain, telling me that I AM good enough, my ideas DO matter, and the only limits that exist in my life are ones I impose on myself. Thank you Ash for sharing your riveting story, and weaving in game-changing lessons along the way. This book is one-of-a-kind, and if you want to succeed in business and life, read it. Bonus points for listening to the audiobook - Ash brings the book to life with her superbly authentic and enthusiastic performance.

Ash is the bomb, the inspiration and the honest to goodness truth teller I was dying to hear. Fixing to start again from chapter one. It’s that good.
