I bought this book for my 16 year old. I wasn’t planning to read it myself zdf mediathek serien downloaden.
As the cover says, it’s a memoir by the creator of Nike, Phil Knight.
My son loves shoes. He loves finding out about how people make money office 365 64 bit herunterladen. And he’s a voracious reader.
My son loved it. His review: “Cool, but it all sounded a bit unbelievable.”
After he said that… I couldn’t help it windows 10 erneut herunterladen. I had to read it for myself.
I loved it!
At the time of the book being published, Phil was 78 years old. He tells the story of his childhood, his education, his travels, his career pathway, the tales of setting up a business, launching NIKE, the struggles, his family life and his life lessons lieder downloaden auf handy. He has a few “life regrets” which I do admire him for sharing.
I don’t usually read memoirs. Yet I found it exciting. Insightful. Gripping galileo ganze folgen downloaden. It’s quite a ride.
It’s very easy to read. And it’s a brilliant story.
I learned so many things:
Phil was one of the first people to introduce Japanese-made sneakers into the American market herunterladen.
He had to work as a full time accountant, while trying to run his shoe business.
At one point, his shoe selling business (the one he ran, before he created Nike) was making millions of dollars, but he was still flat broke block puzzle zum herunterladen.
He travelled all over the world as a young man and was introduced to different cultures and philosophies, which gave him a broad appreciation of the world and people arduino error when downloading from http.
And lastly… I finally realised that I will never become a billionaire. Phil’s life – as visionary and exciting as it was – was just waaaay too work focused, insanely stressful and he lived on the edge of financial ruin for years download whatsapp without play store. Don’t think I could handle that, haha oh well!
