Our Current Book:
"SHOE DOG: A MEMOIR BY THE CREATOR OF NIKE"
by Phil Knight
Bill Gates named Shoe Dog one of his five favorite books of 2016 and called it an amazing tale, a 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. Phil Knight opens up in ways few CEOs are willing to do.
Phil Knight was fresh out of business school, borrowed fifty dollars from his father and launched a company where today, Nike’s annual sales top $30 billion.
In this age of start-ups, Knight’s Nike is the gold standard, and its swoosh is one of the few icons instantly recognized in every corner of the world.
Phil Knight details the many risks he encountered, the crushing setbacks, the ruthless competitors and hostile bankers—as well as his many thrilling triumphs. Above all, he recalls the relationships that formed the heart and soul of Nike.
Even if you’ve read it already, then listen to the audio book or vice versa. It’s a book that will push you forward in your own business and personal journey.
