Shoe Dog, A Memoir by the Creator of NIKE by Phil Knight

Vision. Determination. Hard Work. Success.

These are the driving factors behind the true story of the creator of NIKE, Phil Knight. Shoe Dog is a great American success story driven by innovation and an unwavering commitment to make one’s dream come true. Through hard work and determination to build something unique, this memoir serves to inspire all those with unconventional dreams. I highly recommend.
