The Story of Nike

Title: The Story of Nike (Spirit of Success)
Author: Scott Hays
Publisher: Creative Education
This is a children’s book that comes in a hard cover that I really liked because it is very easy to read and it gives a real quick overview story of how Nike was started.  What I really liked the most about this book was most of the photographs it has from Nike. Some of my favorites include pictures of Steve Prefontaine running for Oregon (in Nikes), Michael Jordan in the early days, Phil Knight in his office, Phil with his wife (Penny), and an over head view of Nike headquarters in Beaverton.
