Although memoir is my genre this was one I didn’t want to read (another’s book club choice) but it hooked me from page 1 and I couldn’t put it down. This memoir of Phil Knight and Nike was a tale with dramtic peaks and troughs, moving swiftly from one crisis to the next. It was motivational and inspiring. I felt that the band of misfits (including the author) would never have made it in a conventional world but under Knight’s skilful lack of management they all flourished to make Nike what it is today. This is a book that business men should read, sportsmen would relate to, shoe dogs would understand and the average person, such as myself, would enjoy as a jolly good read, written with a distinctive voice that you know is as truthful as those in the company showed themselves to be in the court case. I for one will be looking at shoes differently and that swoosh has definitely taken on new meaning for me.
Available from Amazon I would highly recommend it.
