Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of NIKE — a review

A refreshingly honest reminder of what the path to business success really looks like … It’s an amazing tale — Bill Gates

This is a review of Phil Knight’s book Shoe Dog, the story of how he built Nike. If you’re thinking of starting your own business, read this book. It teaches you that you don’t necessarily need talent or people skills or business acumen. So what do you need to cope with problems that you never imagined or planned for? You need three things — belief in your idea, friends, and the ability to keep going no matter what.
