Shoe Dog: A Memoir by the Creator of NIKE by Phil Knight
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. It read like a drama rather than a biography. It is a fascinating story of how the seeds of an idea become reality and the journey it takes. The "characters" are richly drawn and very interesting. You become wrapped up in the protagonist (Phil Knight) and his internal and external struggles to make his "Crazy Idea" a reality, all the while trying to take care of those around him. An excellent read just for the story. I also enjoyed the glimpses back to the 60's and 70's and how much our world has changed. Especially communications. A large part of the anxiety is caused by how slow communications across the country/across the ocean was in those days. How much different things might have been in today's interconnected world. Worth reading even if you don't care about Nike at all, it's just a great story!
