Product description

Review

`A refreshingly honest reminder of what the path to business success really looks like. It's a messy, perilous, and chaotic journey riddled with mistakes, endless struggles, and sacrificeâ ¦ In the pages of Shoe Dog, however, Knight opens up in a way few CEOs are willing to do. He's incredibly tough on himself and his failings... Knight is amazingly honest about the accidental nature of his company's successâ ¦ It's an amazing tale. It's real.' -- Bill Gates 'I've known Phil Knight since I was a kid, but I didn't really know him until I opened this beautiful, startling, intimate book. And the same goes for Nike. I've worn the gear, with pride, but I didn't realize the remarkable saga of innovation and survival and triumph that stood behind every swoosh. Candid, funny, suspenseful, literary this is a memoir for people who love sport, but above all it's a memoir for people who love memoirs.' -- Andre Agassi 'A touching, highly entertaining adventure odyssey, with much to teach about innovation and creativity. Phil Knight takes us back to the Big Bang of the swoosh, recalls how he first begged and borrowed from reluctant banks, how he assembled a crew of eccentric but brilliant misfits, how they all worked together to build something unique and paradigm-changing. An inspiration for everyone with an unconventional dream.' -- Michael Spence, Nobel Prize-winning economist 'Shoe Dog is a great American story about luck, grit, know-how and the magic alchemy of a handful of eccentric characters who came together to build Nike. That it happened at all is a miracle, because as I learned from this book, though we are a nation that extols free enterprise, we also excel at thwarting it. This is Phil Knight, one on one, no holds barred. The lessons he imparts about entrepreneurship and the obstacles one faces in trying to create something, are priceless. The pages I folded down are too many to mention.' -- Abraham Verghese, author of 'Cutting for Stone' 'The best book I read last year was Shoe Dog, by Nike's Phil Knight. Phil is a very wise, intelligent and competitive fellow who is also a gifted storyteller' -- Warren Buffett --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pathetic book quality. Pirated copy
Reviewed in India on 5 May 2019
ONE WORD. PATHETIC. Book quality is so pathetic that I don’t even like to touch the pages of the book. There are so many issues with printing in this book, I can clearly tell it’s a pirated copy. I can clearly see the glue on the corners, that pretty much proves it’s also not new but old. I was so excited to receive this book, but the pathetic quality of book clearly has managed to turn my all excitement off. Totally returning the book.

I haven’t read the book, so I can’t really comment on the content that’s written in the book. I bought this just because I have read a lot of positive reviews. And I will definitely buy this again from some other seller who can provide good quality book. Can’t really stand pirated copies of the books.
