Shoe Dog: A Memoir By The Creator Of NIKE … Phil Knight
Knight details the many terrifying risks he encountered along the way , the crushing setbacks, the ruthless competitors and hostile bankers, – as well as his thrilling triumphs and narrow escapes. Above all, he recalls the foundational relationships that formed the heart and soul of Nike. Together, harnessing the electrifying power of a bold vision and a shared belief in the redemptive, transformative power of sports, they created a brand, and a culture, that changed everything.
Dr. Premnath, Director at Venture Center has written a synopsis and review of the book on his blog at Excerpts from Shoe Dog
