    Probably one of the best golf books ever. The pictures of the some of the courses are just amazing. Flicking through the pages makes you want to go and play golf straight away. A superb book!

    Extremely disappointed — not as advertised!!, July 9, 2011

    This review is from: Golf Courses: Fairways of the World (Hardcover)

    Not as advertised, it talks about a signed print included, which wasn’t, and it talks about 5-foot foldouts, which it doesn’t have, and it talks about how oversize it is, when in fact it is quite small, I’d say about 6 by 9 inches, just slightly larger than a regular paperback, certainly not a coffee-table size book. In other words, false advertising!!

    Ben Crenshaw doubled over and openly wept after holing out to win the 1995 Masters tournament. His golf teacher, friend, and father figure Harvey Penick had passed away shortly before the tourney. Ben felt that Harvey was `guiding’ him in the final rounds, and the emotions finally overtook him. The impact of the moment was very touching, but it wasn’t until I finished Harvey’s Little Red book that I began to understand the poignancy of the connection. The 90-year-old Penick had taught Ben since Ben was 7. The little red book of the title is the notebook, journal, and freeform diary of Mr. Penick. Compiled from golf observations throughout his life, it was only in his waning years that he agreed to allow anyone to see it. What a treat and a privilege it was to read. This is a wonderful piece of literature. Having recently completed Hogan and Armour’s instructional guides, this was an excellent follow up. Not nearly as meticulously mechanical and cold as Hogan, nor as blandly wandering as Armour, Penick’s actual instruction is extremely straightforward in its scope. I also think that the longer one has played golf the greater one appreciates this work. Not written strictly for the beginner, as the other two books are, Harvey comments not only on instruction and mechanics, but also course design, tournaments, hustlers, metaphorical imagery, and caddying in the early part of the century. Throughout the book, his love of teaching and his immense pride in his pupils continues to carry the theme, allowing one to understand the connection he had with his students. Having become extremely weary of the cloying media and corporate anointment of T. Woods, reading about golf as seen through Harvey Penick’s eyes was a much-needed tonic. Highly recommended.

    To read it is to believe it … This works for all, March 12, 1999
    By A Customer

    I first read this book two years ago. I saw it on the shelf of my local book store and thought I would see if he could help where all others had failed. Two years and twelve strokes off my handicap later, I can honestly say his methods and teachings work. But this book is about more than fixing the problems of you golf game. This book is about life. If I had never improved my golf game one iota, I can say that I still got more from this book to help me with my personal life than I ever could from another self-help book. His teaching and his lifestyle were simple. His outlook on life had one important credo, “Take Dead Aim!” With his teachings and those words as my mantra, I have not only improved the quality of my golf game but I have improved the quality of my life. This book is a testament to the fact that not all things in life can be had by making more money than the other guy, but rather by finding what you like to do (play golf), work at being the best you can be (practice), and then treating others as you would be treated were you in their shoes. A must have for not only any golfer interested in improving their game, but for anyone. He says himself that these words are nothing more that the thoughts and teachings of an over-grown caddy, but beleive me this is one caddy with the wisdom that can only come from years being true to himself and the game he loved.

    The Little Red Book That Could….., September 25, 2000
    By A Customer

    Boy Howdy! I’ve been playing golf for two years now, and like other golfers who’ve started playing the game, I too watch The Golf Channel religiously looking for every possible tip to help with my swing. Reading golf magazines, and the like. Well,this past spring I purchased The Little Red Book, and it along with two other books written by Mr. Penick, are the only books on golf I have, and I don’t need no more. I’m telling you,as you read this book, it’s like Mr. Penick is right there with you, helping you to “Be At Ease” and to “Take Dead Aim”. I love the Slow Motion Drill, and it’s my goal to purchase a weighted club and use the drill extensively during the off season. Most of all, I plan to devote as much time as possible to my short game, because Mr. Penick is right when he says a twenty foot putt is more psychologically damaging to an opponent than a 270 yard drive off the tee. I carry “The Little Red Book” with me every day along with my Bible in my book bag. Sound crazy, but that’s how I feel about Harvey Penick. In fact when people ask me if I have an instructor, I tell them it’s Harvey Penick..
