"In this candid and riveting memoir, for the first time ever, Nike founder and CEO Phil Knight shares the inside story of the company's early days as an intrepid start-up and its evolution into one of the world's most iconic, game-changing, and profitable brands. In 1962, fresh out of business school, Phil Knight borrowed $50 from his father and created a company with a simple mission: import high-quality, low-cost athletic shoes from Japan. Selling the shoes from the trunk of his lime green Plymouth Valiant, Knight grossed $8,000 his first year. Today, Nike's annual sales top $30 billion. In an age of startups, Nike is the ne plus ultra of all startups, and the swoosh has become a revolutionary, globe-spanning icon, one of the most ubiquitous and recognizable symbols in the world today. But Knight, the man behind the swoosh, has always remained a mystery. Now, for the first time, in a memoir that is candid, humble, gutsy, and wry, he tells his story, beginning with his crossroads moment. At 24, after backpacking around the world, he decided to take the unconventional path, to start his own business--a business that would be dynamic, different. Knight details the many risks and daunting setbacks that stood between him and his dream--along with his early triumphs. Above all, he recalls the formative relationships with his first partners and employees, a ragtag group of misfits and seekers who became a tight-knit band of brothers. Together, harnessing the transcendent power of a shared mission, and a deep belief in the spirit of sport, they built a brand that changed everything"-- "Young, searching, fresh out of business school, Phil Knight borrowed fifty dollars from his father and launched a company with one simple mission: import high-quality, low-cost running shoes from Japan. Selling the shoes from the trunk of his Plymouth Valiant, Knight grossed eight thousand dollars that first year, 1963. Today, Nike's annual sales top $30 billion. In this Age of Startups, Knight's Nike is the gold standard, and its swoosh is more than a logo. A symbol of grace and greatness, it's one of the few icons instantly recognized in every corner of the world. But Knight, the man behind the swoosh, has always been a mystery. Now, for the first time ever, in a memoir that's candid, humble, startling, funny, and beautifully crafted, he tells his story at last. He begins with his crossroads moment: twenty-four years old, backpacking around the world, wrestling with life's Great Questions, he decides the unconventional path is the only one for him. Rather than work for a big corporation, he will create something all his own, something new, dynamic, different. Knight details the many terrifying risks he encountered along the way, the crushing setbacks, the ruthless competitors, the countless doubters and haters and hostile bankers--as well as his many thrilling triumphs and narrow escapes. Above all, he recalls the foundational relationships that formed the heart and soul of Nike, with his former track coach, the irascible and charismatic Bill Bowerman, and with his first employees, a ragtag group of misfits and savants who quickly became a band of swoosh-crazed brothers. Together, harnessing the electrifying power of a bold vision and a shared belief in the redemptive, transformative power of sport, they created a brand, and a culture, that changed everything"--… (més)

Really, really liked this book. Great story of the come up of the Nike business. Loved seeing the hustle Knight had to go through. Really great book. ( )

Good story. I appreciated knowing where Nike started from and it was great getting to understand the emotions and sentiments behind the whole journey. However, the book was kind of drag for me to read. As a skeptic that I am, the memoir appeared to be written from a total survivorship bias point of view. ( )

Shoe Dog is a business book that reads like an adventure story, because the founding of Nike really was one. It's a tale of entrepreneurship. It's a tale of risk taker vs. bankers. It's also a tale about athletics, particularly running. I enjoyed everything about this book. Favorite quote: If you have a body, you're an athlete. ( )

One of the best business memoirs/autobiographies I've read; really well-written. Knight describes really well the colorful cast of (mostly male) characters that have played a role in the birth of Nike. He also chronicles the challenges of shoe manufacturing, retail, and entrepreneurship in the 1960s and 1970s in an engaging, understandable way. He's always trying to understand his motivations. As much as I liked this book, it felt a little long, YET, I'd love another book from Knight covering the 1980s to the present (just maybe a little shorter). I'm curious about Nike's advertising strategies, and its relationships with athletes. Knight talks a lot about the company's relationship with Steve Prefontaine. He mentions, in the last chapter, how close he was to some other athletes who Nike signed after 1980...I'd like to know how those relationships developed. ( )

This book is both a great biography and great insight into entrepreneurship. I wasn't expecting this, since I don't really care about sports (something central to Phil Knight's life), don't really find consumer (vs. technical/enterprise) businesses interesting, and the book didn't contain any particular technical insights. However, it's probably the most inspirational book about entrepreneurship available. Phil Knight managed to convey both challenges and ultimate goals in a way which was interesting cover to cover.
