Review:

"Shoe Dog" is a great American story about luck, grit, know-how, and the magic alchemy of a handful of eccentric characters who came together to build Nike. That it happened at all is a miracle, because as I learned from this book, though we are a nation that extols free enterprise, we also excel at thwarting it. This is Phil Knight, one on one, no holds barred. The lessons he imparts about entrepreneurship and the obstacles one faces in trying to create something, are priceless. The pages I folded down are too many to mention. Abraham Verghese, author of "Cutting for Stone""

""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 experience."--Lisa Genova, New York Times bestselling author of "Still Alice" and "Inside the O'Briens"

""Shoe Dog" is, at its heart, an origin story, of both a global brand and a footwear lifer...it reads like pure adventure story, boys facing steeper and steeper challenges and finding ways through, often by the skin of their teeth. As Knight collects the misfits and oddballs who become the core of his growing company, "Shoe Dog" is more like "The Lord of the Rings" than a typical mogul memoir."--"Complex"

"I ve known Phil Knight since I was a kid, but I didn t really know him until I opened this beautiful, startling, intimate book. And the same goes for Nike. I ve worn the gear, with pride, but I didn t realize the remarkable saga of innovation and survival and triumph that stood behind every swoosh. Candid, funny, suspenseful, literary this is a memoir for people who love sport, but above all it s a memoir for people who love memoirs." Andre Agassi, New York Times bestselling author of Open"

"A fresh historical perspective on one of the most profiled companies in the world...[Shoe Dog] builds characters of the people behind the brand."--ESPN.com

"Loaded with hard-earned wisdom...Want a simple recommendation? Go get a copy."--Portland Business Journal Review

A rare and revealing look at the notoriously media-shy man behind the swoosh. --Booklist STARRED review"
