<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.

Written by Rachael Denhollander, recipient of <i>Sports Illustrated鈥檚</i> <b>Inspiration of the Year Award</b> and one of <i>Time</i>鈥檚 <b>100 Most Influential People (2018)</b><br /><br /><b>鈥淲ho is going to tell these little girls that what was done to them matters? That they are seen and valued, that they are not alone and they are not unprotected?鈥?lt;/b><br /><br />Rachael Denhollander鈥檚 voice was heard around the world when she spoke out to end the most shocking US gymnastics scandal in history. The first victim to publicly accuse Larry Nassar, the former USA Gymnastics team doctor who sexually abused hundreds of young athletes, Rachael now reveals her full story for the first time. How did Nassar get away with it for so long? How did Rachael and the other survivors finally stop him and bring him to justice? And how can we protect the vulnerable in our own families, churches, and communities?<br /><br /><i>What Is a Girl Worth?</i> is the inspiring true story of Rachael鈥檚 journey from an idealistic young gymnast to a strong and determined woman who found the courage to raise her voice against evil, even when she thought the world might not listen. <b>In this crucial cultural moment of #metoo and #churchtoo,</b> this deeply personal and compelling narrative shines a spotlight on the physical and emotional impact of abuse, why so many survivors are reluctant to speak out, what it means to be believed, the extraordinary power of faith and forgiveness, and how we can learn to do what鈥檚 right in the moments that matter most.<br /><br />Published by Tyndale, this inspirational, empowering book is available in both hardcover and e-book editions.

<b>***A Worldwide Bestseller in 17 Languages!***</b><br /> <div>聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽<div><b>Lasting Change For Early Quitters, Burnouts, The Unmotivated, And Everyone Else Too</b></div><div></div><br /><div>When I decided to start exercising consistently 10 years ago, this is what <i>actually</i> happened:</div><div><ul><li>I tried "getting motivated." It worked sometimes. </li><li>I tried setting audacious big goals. I almost always failed them.</li><li>I tried to make changes last. They didn't.</li></ul></div><div></div><br /><div>Like most people who try to change and fail, I assumed that <i>I</i> was the problem. </div><div></div><br /><div>Then one afternoon--after another failed attempt to get motivated to exercise--I (accidentally) started my first mini habit. I initially committed to do one push-up, and it turned into a full workout. I was shocked. This "stupid idea" wasn't supposed to work. I was shocked again when my success with this strategy continued for months (and to this day). <i>I had to consider that maybe I wasn't the problem in those 10 years of mediocre results. Maybe it was my prior strategies that were ineffective, despite being oft-repeated as "the way to change" in countless books and blogs. </i><br /><br />I was right.</div><div></div><br /><div><b>Is There A Scientific Explanation For This? </b></div><div>As I sought understanding, I found a plethora of scientific studies that had answers, with nobody to interpret them correctly. Based on the science--which you'll find peppered throughout <i>Mini Habits--</i>we've been doing it all wrong. </div><br /><div></div><div>You <i>can</i> succeed without the guilt, intimidation, and repeated failure associated with such strategies as "getting motivated," New Year's Resolutions, or even "just doing it." In fact, you need to stop using those strategies if they aren't giving you great results. They don't work because they all require you to fight against your subconscious brain (a fight not easily won). It's only when you start playing by your brain's rules and taking your human limitations seriously--as mini habits show you how to do--that you can achieve lasting change.</div><br /><b>What's A Mini Habit?</b><br />A mini habit is a very small positive behavior that you force yourself to do every day; its "too small to fail" nature makes it weightless, deceptively powerful, and a superior habit-building strategy. You will have no choice but to believe in yourself when you're always moving forward. The barrier to the first step is so low that even depressed or "stuck" people can find early success and begin to reverse their lives right away. And if you think one push-up a day is too small to matter, I've got one heck of a story for you!<div><br /><b>Aim For The First Step</b><br />They say when you aim for the moon, you'll land among the stars. Well, that doesn't make sense, as the moon is closer than the stars. I digress. The message is that you should aim very high and even if you fall short, you'll still get somewhere. I've found the opposite to be true in regards to productivity and healthy behaviors. When you aim for the moon, you'll won't shoot because it's too far away. But when you aim for the step in front of you, you might just keep going and reach the moon.<br /><br /><b>I've used the Mini Habits strategy to get into the best shape of my life, read 10x more books, and write 4x as many words.</b> It started from requiring one push-up from myself every day. How ridiculous is that? Not so ridiculous when you consider the science of the brain, habits, and willpower. The <i>Mini Habits</i> system works because it's how our brains are designed to change.</div><div></div><br /><div>I relished the opportunity to share this life-changing strategy with the world. I loved writing <i>Mini Habits.</i> You'll see my passion in the content as well as the overall quality and presentation of the book. <br /><br /><b>Note:</b> This book isn't for eliminating bad habits (though some principles could be useful for breaking habits). Mini Habits is a strategy to create permanent healthy habits. Some categories include: exercise, writing, reading, thinking positively, meditating, drinking water, eating healthy foods, etc.</div></div><div>聽 聽 聽 聽 聽 聽聽</div>

Along with Sun Tzu's The Art of War, The Book of Five Rings is considered to be one of the most insightful texts on the subtle arts of confrontation and victory to emerge from Asia. Composed in 1643 by the famed duelist and undefeated samurai Miyamoto Musashi, The Book of Five Rings analyzes the process of struggle and mastery over conflict that underlies every level of human interaction. For Musashi, the way of the martial arts was a mastery of the mind rather than simply technical prowess鈥攁nd it is this path to mastery that is the core teaching in The Book of Five Rings. This brilliant manifesto is written not only for martial artists but for anyone who wants to apply the timeless principles of this text to their life.
