Inhaltsangabe

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 fifty dollars 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 start-ups, Nike is the ne plus ultra of all start-ups, 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.

Kritikerstimmen

"Narrator Norbert Leo Butz...infuses his delivery with drama and suspense, keeping the listener engaged with each chapter. Knight claims to be a shy introvert, but Butz isn't fooled, portraying the chairman as a straight-shooting, no-nonsense leader who keeps winning because he's relentless in his pursuit of success...."

    "More than a memoir and the story of Nike"

    P. Knight conveys the spirit of Nike, his and others through the time. Of course not to mention the birth of Nike and the process behind it. Great things have always small/humble beginnings​...

    "What a great ride..."

    After finishing "Total Recall" by Arnold Schwarzenegger, I wanted to read another good biography. I was skeptical about "Shoe Dog" but the very good reviews made me buy it and I wasn't disappointed. Who would have thought that a story about a shoe company and its founder could be that interesting, entertaining and exciting.

    This is not a biography, this is a fun and exciting ride you take together with Phil Knight and his amazing group of colleagues and friends. At the end, Knight writes that he would love to live through it all over again and I thought that I would gladly accompany him as a reader all over again.

    The speaker is amazing too and really brings live to this incredible live story.

    "Beste Business-Biographie seit langem!"

    Ich war skeptisch, ob die Memoiren des Nike-Gründers wirklich so spannend sein könnten, wie ich links und rechts höre. Tatsächlich: sie waren noch viel besser. Dieses Buch hat mich gefesselt wie ein richtig guter Roman, gibt höchst spannende Insights über die Genese dieses Milliarden-Unternehmens und zeichnet überaus plastische Charaktere. Schluss war ich richtiggehend gerührt. Ein tolles Buch!
