あらすじ・解説

In this candid and riveting memoir, for the first time ever, Nike founder and CEO 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.

In 1962, fresh out of business school, Phil Knight borrowed fifty dollars 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 trunk of his lime-green Plymouth Valiant, Knight grossed $8,000 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 recognizable symbols in the world today.

But Knight, the man behind the swoosh, has always remained a mystery. Now, for the first time, in a memoir that is candid, humble, gutsy, and wry, he tells his story, beginning with his crossroads moment. At 24, after backpacking around the world, he decided to take the unconventional path to start his own business - a business that would be dynamic, different.

Knight details the many risks and daunting setbacks that stood between him and his dream - along with his early triumphs. Above all, he recalls the formative relationships with his first partners and employees, a ragtag group of misfits and seekers who 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.

批評家のレビュー

"Narrator Norbert Leo Butz...infuses his delivery with drama and suspense, keeping the listener engaged with each chapter. Knight claims to be a shy introvert, but Butz isn't fooled, portraying the chairman as a straight-shooting, no-nonsense leader who keeps winning because he's relentless in his pursuit of success...."

Great memoir by Uncle Phil

A must read if you are interested in the story of Nike. Phil shares his life story of what it means to run a business, being a father, be an entrepreneur, and many more.

Wow. 10/10. A must for entrepreneurs...

What an amazing book. I had no idea about Nike until I read this. What a book. Buck Knight's grit and determination. What a guy. Complete new view of Nike and great read for entrepreneurs who are stuck in the daily drudge of making it work. Genuinely gutted this book is over. Well written. Laughed, smiled and genuinely cried... Fantastic. 10/10.

Fantastic story - beautifully written

Phil Knight has a real gift for writing, wonderfully written for someone who is not a professional writer. The story of Nike is inspiring - the guts and bravery shown by all involved is astounding.

This book definitely made me laugh and nearly made me cry. Both Phil Knight and this story are truely authentic, a refreshing change from the modern era of entrepreneurs whose anecdotes and perspectives are tainted by vanity and insecurity.

Bravo

Very inspirational, I never knew how close (and how many times!) Nike came to not existing.

We’re all shoe dogs

Excellent story of the startup and early life of Nike. Really well read (I think the sample is just Phil Knight, whilst the full book is NLB).

The passion from the creator is clear. There’s plenty of anecdotes and learnings that can be taken from this book. I would like to see an extended version that looks at some of the later years of Nike too! Maybe with some stories from some of the other early members of the Nike team!

Best Memoir I ever read

This book I believe was very necessary for me to read as a new and growing Nigerian businessman, though in my case I didn't start the business from scratch, the business had existed even before I was born, but I officially took charge of it's operations roughly 3 years ago. What I inherited was debts and a terribly managed business that had just managed to survive, I saw striking similarities between the challenges Mr Phil Knight had while growing the Nike brand and my challenges keeping my business afloat, the way he surmounted those challenges has in no small way given me more hope than I had imagined, also knowing we started off almost at the same age motivates me even more, this book is a must read if you seek an all round business knowledge

The Story of NIKE

I found this a rare and wonderful insight into the co-founder of NIKE. An extraordinary, true story of the highs and lows of a successful business, the coming together of mix cultures and the love and sadness of family life. Brilliantly written.

I loved it - although it took a couple of goes at listening and then I couldn’t put it down.

A story of uncertainty

I loved Phil’s ability to grip me to the book and explain what must have been such a complex journey in such a simple narrative. I recommend it to anyone that wants to broaden their perspective on business start ups or management.

I really enjoyed Phil’s book! It does exactly that, makes you feel like a friend is telling your a story about their fantastic honest raw adventures in the world of business and beyond.
Loved the story! Love the brand! Now will understand much more the meaning behind the swoosh I wear :) Recommended ✨

Great Audio

An inspiring book of what you can achieve when you are driven to succeed in something you are very passionate about. Took a few chapters to settle in to it but then throughly enjoyed it. I look at Nike a bit different now.

Amazing story about very humble man

Amazing story about successful man, who archived so much, but instead of glorifying himself, he stays humble and giving so much credit to his team members... inspirational and very easy to listen ... one of my most favourite audiobooks ...

Inspirational journey many twists and turns

What an interesting life story. I’m sure most people would have given up at the very first hurdle, but this book demonstrates how to tackle challenges and eventually come out on top. Great inspiration.
