A non fiction book by

 
 
The twentieth anniversary edition of this classic work - the bestselling golf instruction book of all time and hailed as "the golfer's equivalent of The Elements of Style" (The New York Times) - 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 Penick'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 "Socrates of the golf world," 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, Penick's simple, direct, practical wisdom pares away the hypertechnical jargon that'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 Penick's lasting achievement with a moving new foreword by 2012 Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III - whose father learned the game under Penick's tutelage - and reminds golfers everywhere to "take dead aim."
