In this candid and riveting memoir, for the first time ever, Nike founder and board chairman Phil Knight shares the inside story of the company’s early days as an intrepid start-up and its evolution into one of the world’s most iconic, game-changing, and profitable brands.

Young, searching, fresh out of business school, Phil Knight borrowed fifty dollars from his father and launched a company with one simple mission: import high-quality, low-cost running shoes from Japan. Selling the shoes from the trunk of his Plymouth Valiant, Knight grossed eight thousand dollars that first year, 1963. Today, Nike’s annual sales top $30 billion. In this age of start-ups, Knight’s Nike is the gold standard, and its swoosh is more than a logo. A symbol of grace and greatness, it’s one of the few icons instantly recognized in every corner of the world.

But Knight, the man behind the swoosh, has always been a mystery. Now, in a memoir that’s surprising, humble, unfiltered, funny, and beautifully crafted, he tells his story at last. It all begins with a classic crossroads moment. Twenty-four years old, backpacking through Asia and Europe and Africa, wrestling with life’s Great Questions, Knight decides the unconventional path is the only one for him. Rather than work for a big corporation, he will create something all his own, something new, dynamic, different. Knight details the many terrifying risks he encountered along the way, the crushing setbacks, the ruthless competitors, the countless doubters and haters and hostile bankers—as well as his many thrilling triumphs and narrow escapes. Above all, he recalls the foundational relationships that formed the heart and soul of Nike, with his former track coach, the irascible and charismatic Bill Bowerman, and with his first employees, a ragtag group of misfits and savants who quickly became a band of swoosh-crazed brothers.

Together, harnessing the electrifying power of a bold vision and a shared belief in the redemptive, transformative power of sports, they created a brand, and a culture, that changed everything.

Invisible Wounds: Hope While You’re Hurting FREE for the Kindle

Invisible Wounds: Hope While You're Hurting

Right now, Invisible Wounds: Hope While You’re Hurting by Melinda Means is FREE for the Kindle!

Do you walk around looking perfectly fine, but feeling deeply wounded? Are you nursing spiritual, physical or emotional wounds that no one else can see? In the midst of your grief and pain, have you ever felt guilty or overwhelmed by your doubts and questions about God’s goodness: Where is He? Why would He allow this suffering?

Fear or shame keeps you quiet. You live alone with your invisible wounds.

It doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, God designed us for community. He isn’t afraid of our raw honesty, frustration and desperate questioning. He just wants us to come to Him. When we seek the Healer instead of the healing, our painful journeys will lead us to freedom, joy and the unshakeable hope that heals. Hope that is not dependent on a result or an outcome. Hope that doesn’t disappoint.

Melinda Means understands the isolation, grief and questioning that accompanies hidden hurts. For 20 years, she has walked a long, lonely, difficult road of chronic pain and illness — both hers and her son’s. In Invisible Wounds, she transparently shares her struggle with the tough spiritual questions and raw, dark emotions that often accompany suffering.

Seven brave, beautiful women share their invisible wounds in these pages, too. Revealing their pain for this book often brought them to tears. Yet, each one gladly went to some very dark, vulnerable places. They believed God wanted to use their heartache to relieve someone else’s. Ultimately, their painful struggles led them to the hope that heals.

Even if you don’t have a Kindle, you can read the ebook on a variety of devices (including your computer) using one of Amazon’s free reading apps.
