Harvey Penick'S Little Red Book: Lessons And Teachings From A Lifetime In Golf

By Harvey Penick

Simon & Schuster. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good+, Dust Jacket Fine condition. Only flaws are a previous owners inscription on the inside blank page and some maks on the bottom page edge. Otherwise the book looks likit was hardly used. Great reading copy. 175 pages. Synopsis: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."

Six Crises

By Nixon, Richard M.

Doubleday & Co, Garden City, NY, 1962. 458 pp. Gray cloth, blue & gilt lettering on front cover & spine (slight shelfwear), Very Good Condition Hardcover, No DJ. Ex-library with library marks. A few marks on the title page and a small line on page 7. Front cover is lightly smudged, rear cover slightly smudged. Edges and corners are slightly rubbed. Six Crises was Nixon's response to the John F. Kennedy book, Profiles in Courage, which described the courage of eight US Senators. Kennedy sent Nixon a copy of his book, which Nixon thanked him for the next day. In 1961, following his 1960 presidential defeat to Kennedy, Nixon was encouraged by Mamie Eisenhower to write a book about his experiences. On April 20, he visited Kennedy in the White House where Kennedy urged him to write a book; he said that doing so would raise the public image of any public man. Nixon met with a Doubleday book editor the same month. Years later, Nixon's editor at Doubleday, Kenneth McCormick, recounted: "I enjoyed working with him on 'Six Crises.' He had the concept for the book. He had the whole thing in his head, but he said, 'I'm not much of a writer,' and I said, 'I know.' So Nixon talked the book into a tape recorder and another writer came in to help. Then Nixon said, 'Why don't I try the chapter on defeat? In the course of doing this I think I've learned to write.' Well, he wrote that chapter himself, and it was fine. He really was an example of someone who could learn.". ABBBB
