Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of NIKE

Read in Jun 2018
Book by Phil Knight published in 2016

I try my best to write a short summary/review of the books I read, and this is one of them. I typically publish them on Goodreads, but also sync them to here.

Knight goes through the ups and downs of establishing Nike. He's a surprisingly good writer (if it's not a ghost-writer) and at times, you feel yourself holding on to the nearest stable object as you're taken through the riveting narrow escapes of company-ending events: law-suits, inventory chaos, and shoes in the wrong place, at the wrong time. Honest, and delightfully entertaining. Lacks the fifth star, because I do not see myself referring back to lessons from this book in the future. Most of the stories didn’t seem to have that compact anecdotal quality to them.
