‘A refreshingly honest reminder of what the path to business success really looks like … It’s an amazing tale’ Bill Gates

‘The best book I read last year was Shoe Dog, by Nike’s Phil Knight. Phil is a very wise, intelligent and competitive fellow who is also a gifted storyteller’ Warren Buffett

In 1962, fresh out of business school, Phil Knight borrowed $50 from his father and created a company with a simple mission: import high-quality, low-cost athletic shoes from Japan. Selling the shoes from the boot of his Plymouth, Knight grossed $8000 in his first year. Today, Nike’s annual sales top $30 billion. In an age of start-ups, Nike is the ne plus ultra of all start-ups, and the swoosh has become a revolutionary, globe-spanning icon, one of the most ubiquitous and recognisable symbols in the world today.

But Knight, the man behind the swoosh, has always remained a mystery. Now, for the first time, he tells his story. Candid, humble, wry and gutsy, he begins with his crossroads moment when at 24 he decided to start his own business. He details the many risks and daunting setbacks that stood between him and his dream – along with his early triumphs. Above all, he recalls how his first band of partners and employees soon became a tight-knit band of brothers. Together, harnessing the transcendent power of a shared mission, and a deep belief in the spirit of sport, they built a brand that changed everything.

A memoir rich with insight, humour and hard-won wisdom, this book is also studded with lessons – about building something from scratch, overcoming adversity, and ultimately leaving your mark on the world.

  • Ultimate Hacking Challenge: Train on dedicated machines to master the art of hacking Paperback – 3 June 2017

    This is not your regular hacking book. Hell, some might say it is not even a book. This is a training program that gives you a free coupon to access dedicated and real machines with real flaws for 24 hours straight. Reading about hacking is fun, hacking real systems is a whole other level of awesomeness! This program is an opportunity to hone your skills on the training platform at www.hacklikeapornstar.com/training: no simulation, no regex based wargames, no far-fetched hacking-like tricks that only work in CTF games… You get a free coupon to access real machines with real and common flaws. The kind of vulnerabilities you find in every corporate environment around the world: -Bypassing application whitelisting -Privilege escalation -Pivoting on other machines It’s up to you to exploit them in a meaningful way without screwing up the system. I strongly encourage you to take on the training, struggle with the challenge on your own for a few minutes before reading the chapter describing the solution. Try your usual techniques, read about new ones, and have fun. If you are looking for a passive read about hacking, there are other interesting (and more comprehensive) books to try (preferably mine). This piece of work is about concrete action! This is, in my opinion, the best way to fully internalize the concepts and reflexes that make a great hacker. In case you are discovering the world of hacking/pentesting, I planted several links to resources explaining the different concepts we are dealing with.

  • How to Stop Feeling Like Sh*t: 14 Habits that Are Holding You Back from Happiness

    For everyone who loved You Are a Badass and The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck — a cut-through-the-crap guide to quitting the self-destructive habits that undermine happiness and success

    How to Stop Feeling Like Sh*t is a straight-shooting approach to self-improvement for women, one that offers no-crap truth-telling about the most common self-destructive behaviors women tend to engage in. From listening to the imposter complex and bitchy inner critic to catastrophizing and people-pleasing, Andrea Owen — a nationally sought-after life coach — crystallizes what’s behind these invisible, undermining habits. With each chapter, she kicks women’s gears out of autopilot and empowers them to create happier, more fulfilling lives. Powerfully on-the-mark, the chapters are short and digestible, nicely bypassing weighty examinations in favor of punch-points of awareness.
