"A golf essential"
I couldn't believe there was no review for this so I had to offer my 2 cents. While the avid reader & student of golf will probably find nothing new, it's still an essential part of your golf library. I own dozens of golf books but find myself returning to this gem time after time. Broken down into pithy little chapters, the uncomplicated wisdom of this man shines through like a break in the clouds as you approach the first tee. It's not clever or sophisticated, and all the better for it. As my game grows, so does my love for this book: I find more and more depth of meaning in the words.
I'm a golf teacher. I read "Harvey Penick's Little Red Book" many times. I think it's a great book for every golfer. Especially, if you are a golf teacher, you need to read it for your golf.
Thanks a lot!
"There are better golf books"
Not really. If you know a fair amount about the golf swing already, then this book won't help too much.
Made me feel like Harvy Penick was actually talking to me
Probably not, because he's dead
If you really want to read this, get a paper copy. If you want to listen to other golf books, go for story based ones. Instructional books are not good to listen to, you need to see the illustrations. I suggest hard copies of Ben Hogan's 5 lessons, and Jack Nicklaus golf my way
The is the best golf book ever! Harvey was a fantastic man. He lived to teach golf and this is the culmination of his work.
"Great listen with great advice"
The narrator is exactly as I picture Mr penick sounds. The instructions are clear and actionable. Highly recommended.
"Straight to the point. Very Helpful"
I enjoy the simplicity of his message. it reminded me not to let my own mind complicate my swing.
"Greatest golf book ever!"
Jack Whitaker is a great narrator, and the simplicity of Harvey's teaching is second to none!
I think this book is great for beginners or golfers of any skill level as there is something in there for everyone.
"A Classic How-To"
The text is today as it ever was, the model of golf self-help manuals. Simple, charming and direct, it channels the evident grace of Harvey Pennick's confidence that you, his student, will unerringly master this most difficult of sports. Mr Whitaker's reading is completely convincing.
Simple. Easy to understand.
Easy to translate the instruction into my game on the course.
"birdie at last"
This title burns in simply 2 CD's and I have listened to just the first CD over several times and voila! I improved from a low 100 player to a high 90's. Had my first par 4 birdie and sandy par! Looking forward to finish listening and lowering my score further, hopefully to low 90's.
