The twentieth anniversary edition of this classic workâ€”the bestselling golf instruction book of all time and hailed as â€śthe golfer's equivalent of The Elements of Styleâ€ť (The New York Times)â€”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 Penickâ€™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 â€śSocrates of the golf world,â€ť 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, Penickâ€™s simple, direct, practical wisdom pares away the hypertechnical jargon thatâ€™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 Penickâ€™s lasting achievement with a moving new foreword by 2012 Ryder Cup captain Davis Love IIIâ€”whose father learned the game under Penickâ€™s tutelageâ€”and reminds golfers everywhere to â€śtake dead aim.â€ť
