Book Description

26 Oct 1999
ANOTHER ROUND OF INSPIRATION AND INSTRUCTION When Harvey Penick signed copies of his now classic first book, "Harvey Penick's Little Red Book, " Bud Shrake, his coauthor, noticed that he often inscribed them with the line "To my fried and pupil." When Shrake asked him why, Penick replied "Well, if you read my book, you're my pupil, and if you play golf, you're my friend." Taking up where the "Little Red Book" left off, this is the second dose of Penick's singular brand of wit and wisdom, full of the simple and easy-to-understand lessons on golf that Penick is known and admired for. Like its predecessor, "And If You Play Golf, You're My Friend" is rich with Penick's great love of the game, a love that he delighted in sharing with golfers of all ages and levels of ability.

5.0 out of 5 stars More Magic from the Pennick pen 18 Mar 2009
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Another slice of old world charm to complement the 'Little Red Book'. Mr Pennick dispenses more tiny gems of golf advice coupled with reminiscences from a lifetime of golf instruction. If you're looking for spine angles, hand positions, and endless paralysis by analysis then this book is definitely not for you. If you want something that you can dip in and out of where you can savour the genuine warmth of a man who loved and lived for the game then pour yourself a glass of your favourite tipple, sink into your arm chair and indulge yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Golfing Friends 18 July 2013
By JHvW
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Like most golfers I would like to improve my game. This includes reading manuals. I like golf and books about golf, so this successor to the little red book was not a disappointment.

5.0 out of 5 stars IF YOU LIKED LITTLE RED YOU'LL LIKE LITTLE GREEN 19 Mar 2004
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Harvey Penick's AND IF YOU PLAY GOLF, YOU'RE MY FRIEND is a wonderful companion volume to HARVEY PENICK'S LITTLE RED BOOK.
Unlike LITTLE RED, AND IF YOU PLAY GOLF... is more a book of reflections, experiences and anecdotes about the game that Penick devoted a lifetime to. Like LITTLE RED it brings with it a distinctive flavor for the game that is lacking in a sport that has been blown out of proportion by golfing superstars and their embarrassingly large salaries. Penick's words remind golfers everywhere that, in the end, golf is less about celebrity and endorsements and stuffy business sponsors and all about each individual golfer as he or she battles it out on the home course.

5.0 out of 5 stars I don't play golf 2 May 2007
By Twice-lived - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I don't play golf, but I've listened to my father's golf stories for fifteen years. And the only time I ever heard him use a really bad word was when he served as chair of the handicap committee at the club he belonged to. He would enjoy this book.

I bought this book for a brother-in-law who didn't get it, but then, he's a club-thrower. Before wrapping it, I read some of the stories and was truly moved. If all you're trying to do is fix your swing, you can probably find better books for that. Penick's stories touch the highest aspirations of the game and its culture.

If you want to learn about what's really important--sportsmanship, friendship, and improving your life as well as your game, then this book might be of interest to you.

Exceptionally good read! Wish I had read this years ago. This book actually helped my game. It changes the way one thinks about the game.
5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Reading! 1 Oct 2013
By William McCourt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful compilation of the wit, life experiences & wisdom of a golf guru. This is a great addition to any golfer's library and a pleasure to read. There's really no mechanical instructions presented it's all anecdotal. Have had a difficult time putting the book down when I'm reading it.
