Summary
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 one 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
Summary
The influential founder and CEO of Nike shares the inside story of the company's early days as an intrepid startup and its evolution to one of the world's most iconic and profitable brands, offering insights into his own experiences as a young man who envisioned a company that would be run in atypical ways
