Shoe Dog

Shoe Dog tells the story of Nike from 1962 to 1980. It’s a memoir about early days of Nike by its founder Phil Knight. The book is such a page turner, the moment I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down before finishing. It’s very well written, and the story is exciting as well. The betrayals and attempts for hostile takeovers while doing business described in the book were scary, it reminded me the importance of making things, creating value and not depending on other companies.

A few pieces of advice from the man himself:

  • Think long and hard about how you want to spend your time, and with whom you want to spend it for the next forty years.
  • Seek a calling, don’t settle for a job or a profession or a career.

This book is highly recommended if you’re interested in memoirs!
