So vivid, a great story told with style. Has depth on the many stories covered that defined this short period. These three years are perhaps THE turning point in the modern history of the UK and are relevant to a wide audience as it sets the direction followed by the UK over the last 40 years. For those around at the time this was such an electric time to a live. Great nostalgia.

Comprehensive, thorough, enjoyable. A long listen but never boring. Good tone and pace. Befitting surely the greatest English man to have lived. And how lucky to be in the right place at the right time to fulfill his destiny that he predicted aged 16!

A great story.

Inspiring and honest tale of building a business with lots of challenges, luck and tenacity. Given everything that happened to Blue Ribbon and the Nike it’s amazing they made it. All businesses face big challenges and most are limited by them. Nike are one of the small number of businesses that somehow managed to power through and really be something on the world stage. At the heart of this story are the people that made it happen, a collection of random people committed to a cause and who stuck with it. If it wasn’t for them, Bowerman, Johnston, Hayes, Strauser there would be no Nike. Phil Knight was a genius to get these people on board and delivering with such a light touch and mostly working remote.
