Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of Nike


Shoe Dog was an instant New York Times best Seller. This book from Nike founder and Chairman Phil Knight offers a rare glimpse into the mind of a notoriously shy man. The man behind the biggest shoe brand of all time has spend much of his life avoiding the media from it’s days as a start up, to becoming one of the most iconic brands on the planet.

Bill Gates called shoe dog an amazing tale and one that is honest about what the path to business success actually looks like. It is a chaos strewn, failure riddled ride to success. Knight does not beat around the fact that this journey was an endless struggle to make it.Fresh out of business School, Knight turned 50 dollars from his father into a company that has annual sales in excess of 79 billion USD. For us, this book is an MBA in 200 odd pages. This one is not to be missed.
