Review Shoe Dog is, at its heart, an origin story, of both a global brand and a footwear liferit reads like pure adventure story, boys facing steeper and steeper challenges and finding ways through, often by the skin of their teeth As Knight collects the misfits and oddballs who become the core of his growing company, Shoe Dog is like The Lord of the Rings than a typical mogul memoir ComplexAn extraordinary memoir one of the best stories of entrepreneurship I have ever read Fareed ZakariaA refreshingly honest reminder of what the path to business success really looks like It s a messy, perilous, and chaotic journey riddled with mistakes, endless struggles, and sacrifice Here Knight opens up in a way few CEOs are willing to do I don t think Knight sets out to teach the reader anything Instead, he accomplishes something better He tells his story as honestly as he can It s an amazing tale Bill Gates, one of his favorite books of 2016 Shoe Dog is a great American story about luck, grit, know how, and the magic alchemy of a handful of eccentric characters who came together to build Nike That it happened at all is a miracle, because as I learned from this book, though we are a nation that extols free enterprise, we also excel at thwarting it This is Phil Knight, one on one, no holds barred The lessons he imparts about entrepreneurship and the obstacles one faces in trying to create something, are priceless The pages I folded down are too many to mention Abraham Verghese, author of Cutting for StoneI ve known Phil Knight since I was a kid, but I didn t really know him until I opened this beautiful, startling, intimate book And the same goes for Nike I ve worn the gear, with pride, but I didn t realize the remarkable saga of innovation and survival and triumph that stood behind every swoosh Candid, funny, suspenseful, literary this is a memoir for people who love sport, but above all it s a memoir for people who love memoirs Andre Agassi, New York Times bestselling author of OpenA touching, highly entertaining adventure odyssey, with much to teach about innovation and creativity Phil Knight takes us back to the Big Bang of the swoosh, recalls how he first begged and borrowed from reluctant banks, how he assembled a crew of eccentric but brilliant misfits, how they all worked together to build something unique and paradigm changing An inspiration for everyone with an unconventional dream Michael Spence, Nobel prize winning economistA rare and revealing look at the notoriously media shy man behind the swoosh Booklist STARRED

has become a revolutionary, globe spanning icon, one of the most ubiquitous and recognisable symbols in the world today But Knight, the man behind the swoosh, has always remained a mystery Now, for the first time, he tells his story Candid, humble, wry and gutsy, he begins with his crossroads moment when at 24 he decided to start his own business He details the many risks and daunting setbacks that stood between him and his dream along with his early triumphs Above all, he recalls how his first band of partners and employees soon became a tight knit band of brothers Together, harnessing the
