From Booklist

It's easy to understand why near nonagenarian Harvey Penick has become a best-selling author with the publication of two unprepossessing golf instructionals, Harvey Penick's Little Red Book (1992) and And If You Play Golf, You're My Friend (1993). The human animal has an extremely limited capacity for thinking while swinging a golf club, a fact that most teachers of the sport have never properly recognized. Not Penick. His swing tips are succinct, simple, and goal directed, whether he's telling you to clip a tee in the backyard or practice chip shots under a card table. Similarly, his philosophical musings on the game, while sometimes engagingly enigmatic, always have a practical point. His third book is aimed at women golfers, though plenty of his advice will be appropriate for those of either sex. He does, however, make several telling points relating specifically to women: why women have such naturally good short games, for example, and how women can develop "golfing muscles." Readers of both the the previous books will find some repetition here, but Penick's homespun wisdom always bears repeating. A must where golf books are popular.

About the Author

Harvey Penick's association with golf and with the Austin (Texas) Country Club dates back to 1913, when he began working there as a caddie. Mr. Penick has taught five of the thirteen women that have been inducted into the Ladies' Professional Golf Association Hall of Fame. He still lives in Austin with his wife, Helen. This is his third book.

Pleasant book, however not too informative. There are better women's golf books out there, for example "Golf is a Woman's Game" is really inspirational. However in all, "For all who Love the Game" makes a nice gift or an easy read, but you could do better.

Every chapter is a different lesson. It can be read and re-read. Mr. Penick has so many experiences to share. Funny, inspiring, a real joy! Great gift!

Best golf book for women I have ever read.
I refer to it often.
This book is for women, it is easy to understand and it improved my game
more than anything I can think of. Buy it, read it, do it.

The item looked good--just like new. It came promptly, no complaints. Only problem was that it was not a book, but rather a casette tape! Must have been my mistake, but I question how well marked it is when it's mixed in with all the books for sale. Anyway, luckily my girlfriend has an older car with a casette player! My bad! Avoid the same mistake....

I bought this book as a Christmas present for a female friend of mine. The amount of golf she plays wasn't a factor. I have enjoyed the three Harvey Penick books I own and look back to them for relevant anecdotes and pearls of common wisdom. I assumed (hoped) this book for women would be in the same mold.

Very Good , as are all of the Penick books - bought this as a gift for a female gofling friend, and she loves it. This is the kind of reading that brings joy back into the game.

Unfortunately, my last purchase, which I didn't review, did not come in the advertised condition. Whiskey Island, a paperback, arrived looking used and had been advertised as "like new". It was for a gift, and being out of print, I needed it to be decent. I failed to review that time, but had high hopes for this time since it was for a ladies' golf luncheon. Everything was PERFECT. Thank you very much! The aforementioned complaint was my only one with using Amazon. All other dealings have been very satisfactory!
