The Shoe Dog is an exceptional autobiography of the superman behind Nike, The Phil Knight. It’s no surprise why some of the eminent’s in various industries pay respect to the Phil knight, the shoe dog.
Phil itself possesses the magnificent power of storytelling, so the book holds your heart with every single sentence. There’s drama, action, description, travel, romance, business & risks. But most importantly there’s love, the undying love for the shoe, by, the shoe dog.
The shoe dog is poetry in motion. Breaking the classical styles of autobiographies, the shoe dog is eccentric. It’s more about the treacherous journey of every great entrepreneur and less about a self-made individual making miracles.
Phil’s journey will carry you from a small brooklet to an enormous great sea. But eventually, it will drop you in another mystic journey, that you are supposed to explore. Phil teaches you to craft the strong ships that can battle the thunderstorm & at the same time, the relations that last life long.
Phil is an extraordinary human being, but also a noted entrepreneur of all time. The honesty of the author makes the book realistic. Phil is honest with his flaws and views, that makes him acceptable throughout the journey.
The authentic story penned with a writing style of fantasies is the shoe dog. Just like the brand, it’s unique & remarkable.
“The cowards never started and the weak died along the way. That leaves us, ladies and gentlemen. Us.”― Phil Knight, Shoe Dog
“Like books, sports give people a sense of having lived other lives, of taking part in other people’s victories. And defeats. When sports are at their best, the spirit of the fan merges with the spirit of the athlete.”― Phil Knight, Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of NIKE
