Overview

Harvey Penick's Little Red Book: Lessons And Teachings From A Lifetime In Golf by Harvey Penick

The twentieth anniversary edition of this classic work—the bestselling golf instruction book of all time and hailed as “the golfer's equivalent of The Elements of Style” (The New York Times)—includes a new introduction by a prominent golfer, twenty new illustrations, and never-before-published materials from the Penick family archives.

The most beloved golf book of all time, Harvey Penick’s Little Red Book has become required reading for all players and fans of the game, from beginners to seasoned pros.

The legendary Harvey Penick, whom Sports Illustrated called the “Socrates of the golf world,” began his golfing career as a caddie in Austin, Texas, at the age of eight, and over the course of nearly a century worked with an amazing array of champions. In this classic book, which is named for the red notebook he always kept, Penick’s simple, direct, practical wisdom pares away the hypertechnical jargon that’s grown up around the golf swing, and lets all golfers, whatever their level, play their best.

This twentieth-anniversary edition features a treasure trove of rare images from the Penick family archives, commemorates Penick’s lasting achievement with a moving new foreword by 2012 Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III—whose father learned the game under Penick’s tutelage—and reminds golfers everywhere to “take dead aim.”

I began to play golf on the open grasses of North Dakota when I was five years old. I now am thirty five years older and teach special education for children of wealthy professionals. Reviewers of Harvey Penick's writings on the sport of golf have missed the incredible value of his wisdom for anyone that teaches in a one-to-one format. They have also missed his grand but subtle sense of humor. They were not teachers or golfers, nor a very, very wise older gentleman. Read Harvey Penick's work to improve your golf but more importantly read Harvey Penick's Little Red Book to improve your perspective on life.

This book has inspired me more than i could have ever imagined. Harvey Penick's simple point of view of the game brought me to realize in order to win at the the game you must truely love the game. To anyone who has ever played the game or wishes to play it this book is a neccesity. It will make you laugh, cry, and bring you to an understanding of the game you never thought possible. I enjoyed this book so much because it makes the most complex seem/become easy. This is a book every golfer should own.
