Title – Shoe Dog

Author – Phil Knight

As one of the most recognised brands in the world, this book is a refreshing tale of the entrepreneurial journey.

This story is not what you might expect to read from a $30 billion company. It really takes you on a journey of a start-up business, right through to where they are today.

Phil Knight is the founder of NIKE, the shoes that you likely own a pair of and he is (apparently) a brilliant author. I expected more ego and more boasting, however this book comes across as really raw and honest.

I loved this book and I hope you do too.
Let me know what you think in the comments.

You can get a copy at Amazon, or most bookstores.
*Format – Paperback, eBook, Audiobook
