<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER</b><BR> <BR>In this instant<i> </i>and tenacious bestseller, Nike founder and board chairman Phil Knight “offers a rare and revealing look at the notoriously media-shy man behind the swoosh” (<i>Booklist</i>, starred review), illuminating his 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.<BR><BR>Bill Gates named <i>Shoe Dog</i> one of his five favorite books of 2016 and called it “an amazing tale, a refreshingly honest reminder of what the path to business success really looks like. It’s 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.”<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’s annual sales top $30 billion. In this age of start-ups, Knight’s 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—as 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—and a culture—that changed everything.

<b>***A Worldwide Bestseller in 17 Languages!***</b><br /> <div>                 <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>            </div>
