<b>In this instant<i> </i>and tenacious <i>New York Times</i> bestseller, Nike founder and board chairman Phil Knight 鈥渙ffers a rare and revealing look at the notoriously media-shy man behind the swoosh鈥?(<i>Booklist</i>, starred review), illuminating his company鈥檚 early days as an intrepid start-up and its evolution into one of the world鈥檚 most iconic, game-changing, and profitable brands.</b><br /><br />Bill Gates named <i>Shoe Dog</i> one of his five favorite books of 2016 and called it 鈥渁n amazing tale, a refreshingly honest reminder of what the path to business success really looks like. It鈥檚 a messy, perilous, and chaotic journey, riddled with mistakes, endless struggles, and sacrifice. Phil Knight opens up in ways few CEOs are willing to do.鈥?lt;br /> <br />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 car in 1963, Knight grossed eight thousand dollars that first year. Today, Nike鈥檚 annual sales top $30 billion. In this age of start-ups, Knight鈥檚 Nike is the gold standard, and its swoosh is one of the few icons instantly recognized in every corner of the world.<br /> <br />But Knight, the man behind the swoosh, has always been a mystery. In <i>Shoe Dog</i>, he tells his story at last. At twenty-four, Knight decides that rather than work for a big corporation, he will create something all his own, new, dynamic, different. He details the many risks he encountered, the crushing setbacks, the ruthless competitors and hostile bankers鈥攁s well as his many thrilling triumphs. Above all, he recalls the 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.<br /> <br />Together, harnessing the electrifying power of a bold vision and a shared belief in the transformative power of sports, they created a brand鈥攁nd a culture鈥攖hat changed everything.

<b>鈥淩achel beautifully illustrates that loving fiercely and grieving deeply are often two halves of the same whole. Her story will break you down and lift you up.鈥?鈥擥lennon Doyle, author of the #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>Love Warrior</i> and founder of Together Rising</b><br /><br />While on her way to teach a yoga retreat in March 2014, Rachel Brathen collapses at an airport, brought to her knees by excruciating stomach pains. She is rushed to the hospital on the tiny island of Bonaire, and hours later forced to undergo surgery. When she wakes up from anesthesia, her boyfriend is weeping at her bedside. While Rachel was struck down with seemingly mysterious pain, her best friend, Andrea, sustained fatal injuries as a result of a car accident. Rachel and Andrea had a magical friendship. Though they looked nothing alike鈥攐ne girl tall, blond, and Swedish, the other short, brunette, and Colombian鈥攅veryone called them <i>gemelas</i>: twins.<br /> <br />Over the three years following Andrea鈥檚 death, at what might appear from the outside to be the happiest time鈥攚ith her engagement to the man she loves and a blossoming career that takes her all over the world鈥擱achel faces a series of trials that have the potential to define her life. Unresolved grief and trauma from her childhood make the weight of her sadness unbearable. At each turn, she is confronted again and again with a choice: Will she lose it all, succumb to grief, and grasp for control that鈥檚 beyond her reach? Or can she move through the loss and let go?<br /> <br />When Rachel and her husband conceive a child, pregnancy becomes a time to heal and an opportunity to be reborn herself. As she recounts this transformative period, Rachel shares her hard-won wisdom about life and death, love and fear, what it means to be a mother and a daughter, and how to become someone who walks through the fire of adversity with the never-ending practice of loving hard and letting go.
