    Shoe Dog is an extraordinary hero's journey, an epic tale of faith, unparalleled determination, excellence, failure, triumph, hard-earned wisdom, and love. It's nothing short of a miracle that Nike exists. I finished the last sentence in complete awe, inspired and grateful for the experience.--Lisa Genova, New York Times bestselling author of Still Alice and Inside the O'Briens

    (نايك) مشهورة لكن فِل نايت (مؤسس نايك) شخصية مجهولة تمامًا بالنّسبة لي. بعد قراءة سيرته توصّلت إلى أهمّية نشرها، لأنّ الرجل كسر الصورة النمطية لرائد الأعمال العالمي الناجح.

    فاجأتني صفاته التي في الغالب لا يربطها النّاس مع ريادة الأعمال والنّجاح. مثلاً: بدايته المهنية كانت المحاسبة، شخصيّتة انطوائية، كان سيّء جدًا في المفاوضات، كان لا يؤمن كثيرًا بالإعلانات (عكس ستيف جوبز)، علاقته بأسرته أكثر من رائعة (كان يتّصل بأبيه كلَّ مساء).

    دوستانِ گرانقدر، این کتاب، خاطراتِ <فیل نایت> مالکِ شرکت بزرگِ "نایکی" میباشد و به بهترین شکلِ ممکن نشان داده است که چگونه از کجا به کجا رسیده است و همچون دونده ای تیزپا از منطقهٔ پورتلند، این مسیرِ پیشرفت را طی کرده است... نمیتوان کتاب را چکیده کرد، امّا به انتخاب بخشی از نوشته هایِ کتاب را در زیر برایتان مینویسم که مربوط میشود به دورانی که او در دانشگاه درس میخوانده است و خاطراتش از شخصی به نامِ <بیل بُوِرمن> که تأثیر بسیار زیادی در پیشرفتِ او داشته است و از مربی تبدیل به شریکِ کار ...more

    This book was really inspirational and I think that it's a great book for people that would want to do business in the future or if they just need some inspiration. People's accomplishments always amazes us and we praise and remember people for their achievements but we never look on the other side. The side of failure. Mistakes. Grit. And most importantly, hope. What we don't see is all the teamwork, determination, and hard-working people and the effort that was put into Blue Ribbon, the former ...more

    Any successful business has had its share of ups and downs which later on, makes for a absolute cracker of a story. But when narrated by an athlete with the same energy as that of Prefontaine, it can only fan your flames for pursuing your passion, in one way or the other.

    Just do it.

    Навярно лекарството за всеки бърнаут, мислех си, е просто да работиш повече: http://knigolandia.info/book-review/i...

    “Изкуството на победата” е книга за бягането и за постоянното рискуване на всичко. Найт ми звучи пределно откровен, а разказът му от първо лице тече леко и носи напред, все напред, към все по-усилващия се водовъртеж на големия бизнес – толкова далеч от багажника на колата, пълен с маратонки Tiger, откъдето започва. Имах и чисто личен мотив да чета тази книга – в моето семейство во

    Easily one of my all-time favorite business books, out there with Liar’s Poker and The Snowball. From cover to cover it exuded positive vibes; a nice kick-start for my 2018 reading year.

    The key messages conveyed by this memoir were not unlike those in biographies authored by founders of other successful businesses: marry career with passion, place subordinates according to their talents etc. etc.

    And yet Phil Knight expertly presented the mortal side of a legendary CEO; he forsook platitudes an
