Amazon Review

The late Harvey Penick was one of the game's great teachers and his Little Red Book is one of the game's great inspirational motivators. Comprised of epigrams and anecdotes culled from the notes Penick took over a very long lifetime, it is filled with gentle prodding, practical swing advice, calming emotional counsel, a contagious love for the game and much good will and encouragement for golfers at every level.

Before titanium drivers, before oversized heads and bubble shafts, before electronic systems to tell you how far you are from the pin, golf was much the same game it is today. The lessons Harvey Penick taught in the pre-gadget days still stand. The golf swing is basically the same and Penick could teach it better than anybody. For most of his life, he never intended to publish his Little Red Book, a notebook of golf wisdom and anecdotes that he compiled with the idea that he'd pass it on to his son. But, for the sake of history, it's a good thing that he changed his mind. Contained in its 175 pages is just about all you need to know about golf from a technical standpoint, along with Penick's priceless memories of working with famous pros, teaching absolute nobodies to get the ball in the air and finding a horde of bat manure and hauling it across town in a pickup truck to fertilise his golf course. This book makes you feel good about playing golf, that you're part of something steeped in ritual and mystery and tradition, and that the game was played perfectly well before perimeter-weighted, graphite-shafted irons came along. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
