    This book made me cry. Twice! I did not know a book about what I had previously viewed as the definition of a big corporation could have that sort of power. I was wrong. Phil Knight had been an unfamiliar name to me before I picked up this memoir. That, in itself, seems strange. I ...

    I think Shoe Dog by Phil Knight is the best memoir I?ve ever read by a business person. I consumed it in a day last week. It?s about the origin story of Nike, which started out as Blue Ribbon Sports. Unlike so many memoirs, it?s not an equally balanced arc through Knight?s ...

    Growing up in Chicago in the 1980s and 1990s, as a collective society we were in awe of Michael Jordan. Not only did we imagine ourselves draining the decisive jump shot to seal the title, we also had to use every product that he endorsed; Gatorade, Wheaties, Coca-Cola, and, of course,...

    Shoe Dog could have been titled, "Buck Naked", because of the way Phil "Buck" Knight bares his soul in this fine memoir. I'm grateful to Knight for putting it all down in black and white. My 12 years with Nike started toward the end of the timeframe of this memoir, and so a lot of what...

    I?m not sure when I became aware of Nike ? maybe sometime around the millennium? Certainly not before that. I was therefore astounded to learn that the company had been founded in the early 1970?s, with the aim of producing and selling sports shoes. In fact, the co-founder (and m...

    Shoe Dog is an extraordinary hero's journey, an epic tale of faith, unparalleled determination, excellence, failure, triumph, hard-earned wisdom, and love. It's nothing short of a miracle that Nike exists. I finished the last sentence in complete awe, inspired and grateful for the expe...

    I adored this book right from the beginning. The intro felt magical. I read Bowerman's biography written by Kenny Moore, who was a teammate of Phil Knight's on the Oregon track team. So I got a little of the history of Blue Ribbon Sports through that account, but not much about the...

    Co-founder of Nike, Phil Knight, has a remarkable life story of starting this world-wide shoe brand. I love reading memoirs and the story has places with keen interest--yet other areas are boring and could have been easily cut. The results is something OK but NOT amazing and page-turni...

    Picked this up hoping it would be a fascinating and inspirational book about leadership and passion. Well... it was an interesting book, at least. It follows Phil Knight's professional career starting from a small running shoe importer up until Nike becoming a publicly traded company. ...

    Any successful business has had its share of ups and downs which later on, makes for a absolute cracker of a story. But when narrated by an athlete with the same energy as that of Prefontaine, it can only fan your flames for pursuing your passion, in one way or the other. Just do it....

    Overall: Meh. This book doesn't contain much. No real business or leadership insight. Not even an interesting story about the formation of Nike. Mostly the life of Phil Knight and Nike's early legal trouble. Truth be told, Phil Knight sounds to be an all around self-absorbed individual...

    Great story. There is grit, passion, and drama. Phil Knight described with amazing details his journey from selling shoes out of his car to building a multi-billion dollar company. It'd have been an perfect from zero to hero story if it wasn't for its elitism. All important people ...

    Loved this book and it was a perfect plane book except for the two parts where I teared up and tried to inconspicuously wipe away the silent tears. Having just started business school and completed a class on leadership, it's fascinating to see yet another example of leader who unconsc...

    This book was really inspirational and I think that it's a great book for people that would want to do business in the future or if they just need some inspiration. People's accomplishments always amazes us and we praise and remember people for their achievements but we never look on t...

    My favorite book of the year so far. Knight shares the personal, honest, vulnerable side of building an empire. The prose is beautiful, the lessons are great. My favorite thing of this book is that it portrays perfectly how building a business isn't about being a smart 'businessman', b...

    Fantastic - probably the best book I've read this year (next to When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi). I'd say this book is probably way more enjoyable if you're not familiar with the history of Nike or its founder, Phil Knight. The book is beautifully written, and Phil's voice sh...

    Very pleasantly surprised at the power of this book! No co-author, apparently, and he certainly does not need one. The writing is impassioned, concise and insightful. I know some of the Nike story, but never the depth of the details and personalities as outlined here. Brought me back t...

    Easily one of my all-time favorite business books, out there with Liar?s Poker and The Snowball. From cover to cover it exuded positive vibes; a nice kick-start for my 2018 reading year. The key messages conveyed by this memoir were not unlike those in biographies authored by found...

    Shoe Dog is an extraordinary hero's journey, an epic tale of faith, unparalleled determination, excellence, failure, triumph, hard-earned wisdom, and love. It's nothing short of a miracle that Nike exists. I finished the last sentence in complete awe, inspired and grateful for the expe...

    I adored this book right from the beginning. The intro felt magical. I read Bowerman's biography written by Kenny Moore, who was a teammate of Phil Knight's on the Oregon track team. So I got a little of the history of Blue Ribbon Sports through that account, but not much about the...

    Co-founder of Nike, Phil Knight, has a remarkable life story of starting this world-wide shoe brand. I love reading memoirs and the story has places with keen interest--yet other areas are boring and could have been easily cut. The results is something OK but NOT amazing and page-turni...

    Picked this up hoping it would be a fascinating and inspirational book about leadership and passion. Well... it was an interesting book, at least. It follows Phil Knight's professional career starting from a small running shoe importer up until Nike becoming a publicly traded company. ...

    Any successful business has had its share of ups and downs which later on, makes for a absolute cracker of a story. But when narrated by an athlete with the same energy as that of Prefontaine, it can only fan your flames for pursuing your passion, in one way or the other. Just do it....

    Overall: Meh. This book doesn't contain much. No real business or leadership insight. Not even an interesting story about the formation of Nike. Mostly the life of Phil Knight and Nike's early legal trouble. Truth be told, Phil Knight sounds to be an all around self-absorbed individual...

    Great story. There is grit, passion, and drama. Phil Knight described with amazing details his journey from selling shoes out of his car to building a multi-billion dollar company. It'd have been an perfect from zero to hero story if it wasn't for its elitism. All important people ...

    Loved this book and it was a perfect plane book except for the two parts where I teared up and tried to inconspicuously wipe away the silent tears. Having just started business school and completed a class on leadership, it's fascinating to see yet another example of leader who unconsc...

    This book was really inspirational and I think that it's a great book for people that would want to do business in the future or if they just need some inspiration. People's accomplishments always amazes us and we praise and remember people for their achievements but we never look on t...

    This book made me cry. Twice! I did not know a book about what I had previously viewed as the definition of a big corporation could have that sort of power. I was wrong. Phil Knight had been an unfamiliar name to me before I picked up this memoir. That, in itself, seems strange. I ...

    I think Shoe Dog by Phil Knight is the best memoir I?ve ever read by a business person. I consumed it in a day last week. It?s about the origin story of Nike, which started out as Blue Ribbon Sports. Unlike so many memoirs, it?s not an equally balanced arc through Knight?s ...

    Shoe Dog could have been titled, "Buck Naked", because of the way Phil "Buck" Knight bares his soul in this fine memoir. I'm grateful to Knight for putting it all down in black and white. My 12 years with Nike started toward the end of the timeframe of this memoir, and so a lot of what...

    Easily one of my all-time favorite business books, out there with Liar?s Poker and The Snowball. From cover to cover it exuded positive vibes; a nice kick-start for my 2018 reading year. The key messages conveyed by this memoir were not unlike those in biographies authored by found...

    Shoe Dog is an extraordinary hero's journey, an epic tale of faith, unparalleled determination, excellence, failure, triumph, hard-earned wisdom, and love. It's nothing short of a miracle that Nike exists. I finished the last sentence in complete awe, inspired and grateful for the expe...

    I adored this book right from the beginning. The intro felt magical. I read Bowerman's biography written by Kenny Moore, who was a teammate of Phil Knight's on the Oregon track team. So I got a little of the history of Blue Ribbon Sports through that account, but not much about the...

    Co-founder of Nike, Phil Knight, has a remarkable life story of starting this world-wide shoe brand. I love reading memoirs and the story has places with keen interest--yet other areas are boring and could have been easily cut. The results is something OK but NOT amazing and page-turni...

    Picked this up hoping it would be a fascinating and inspirational book about leadership and passion. Well... it was an interesting book, at least. It follows Phil Knight's professional career starting from a small running shoe importer up until Nike becoming a publicly traded company. ...

    Any successful business has had its share of ups and downs which later on, makes for a absolute cracker of a story. But when narrated by an athlete with the same energy as that of Prefontaine, it can only fan your flames for pursuing your passion, in one way or the other. Just do it....

    Overall: Meh. This book doesn't contain much. No real business or leadership insight. Not even an interesting story about the formation of Nike. Mostly the life of Phil Knight and Nike's early legal trouble. Truth be told, Phil Knight sounds to be an all around self-absorbed individual...

    Great story. There is grit, passion, and drama. Phil Knight described with amazing details his journey from selling shoes out of his car to building a multi-billion dollar company. It'd have been an perfect from zero to hero story if it wasn't for its elitism. All important people ...

    Loved this book and it was a perfect plane book except for the two parts where I teared up and tried to inconspicuously wipe away the silent tears. Having just started business school and completed a class on leadership, it's fascinating to see yet another example of leader who unconsc...

    Growing up in Chicago in the 1980s and 1990s, as a collective society we were in awe of Michael Jordan. Not only did we imagine ourselves draining the decisive jump shot to seal the title, we also had to use every product that he endorsed; Gatorade, Wheaties, Coca-Cola, and, of course,...

    Shoe Dog could have been titled, "Buck Naked", because of the way Phil "Buck" Knight bares his soul in this fine memoir. I'm grateful to Knight for putting it all down in black and white. My 12 years with Nike started toward the end of the timeframe of this memoir, and so a lot of what...

    Easily one of my all-time favorite business books, out there with Liar?s Poker and The Snowball. From cover to cover it exuded positive vibes; a nice kick-start for my 2018 reading year. The key messages conveyed by this memoir were not unlike those in biographies authored by found...

    Shoe Dog is an extraordinary hero's journey, an epic tale of faith, unparalleled determination, excellence, failure, triumph, hard-earned wisdom, and love. It's nothing short of a miracle that Nike exists. I finished the last sentence in complete awe, inspired and grateful for the expe...

    I adored this book right from the beginning. The intro felt magical. I read Bowerman's biography written by Kenny Moore, who was a teammate of Phil Knight's on the Oregon track team. So I got a little of the history of Blue Ribbon Sports through that account, but not much about the...

    Co-founder of Nike, Phil Knight, has a remarkable life story of starting this world-wide shoe brand. I love reading memoirs and the story has places with keen interest--yet other areas are boring and could have been easily cut. The results is something OK but NOT amazing and page-turni...

    Picked this up hoping it would be a fascinating and inspirational book about leadership and passion. Well... it was an interesting book, at least. It follows Phil Knight's professional career starting from a small running shoe importer up until Nike becoming a publicly traded company. ...

    Any successful business has had its share of ups and downs which later on, makes for a absolute cracker of a story. But when narrated by an athlete with the same energy as that of Prefontaine, it can only fan your flames for pursuing your passion, in one way or the other. Just do it....

    Overall: Meh. This book doesn't contain much. No real business or leadership insight. Not even an interesting story about the formation of Nike. Mostly the life of Phil Knight and Nike's early legal trouble. Truth be told, Phil Knight sounds to be an all around self-absorbed individual...
