After sixty years of keeping notes on the things he's seen and learned and on the golfing greats he's taught, Penick lets the secrets in his Little Red Book be heard by the golf world in this classic work. His simple, direct, practical wisdom pares away all the hypertechnical jargon that's grown up around the game, and lets all golfers play their best - whatever their level.

I was golfing with a father and his 11 year old son last summer. While the father was a good player it was evidant that the 11 year old was more consistant and had a better form. Even these duffer's eyes appreciates a great swing. I shared this with the dad who went on to add, "Get them when they are young; find something that will ineterest them; the rest will take care of itself. Wel that was not all. He then added have you read Harvey Penick's "Little Red Book"?. I hadn't. He offered that I should. Everyone should. I found the abridged version here and it now provides me with the best golf lessons I could ever find. Harvey breaks the game down to its manageable parts and provides insights as to how to improve. His understanding of the game was truely amazing. Just ask any emrging 11-year old golfing star.
