Shoe Dog is an autobiography by Phil Knight. Inside, you’ll read about the hardships and victories he went through as he breathed Nike to life. From a small business selling Japanese running shoes to one of the world’s most-known athletic brands, Knight couldn’t have done it without the help of his passionate family and friends. It starts in 1962, when Knight first pitched his Crazy Idea to his dad. The journey only got crazier from there.

I found this book inspiring because it showed me that success doesn’t just happen right away. Another thing is that there are many hard times in the making of something. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone, and especially my track and field friends since I believe that they’d get how important shoes are when it comes to sport. Overall I rate this book 9/10.
