This, the fourth book by Harvey Penick, was nearly finished when he died in April 1995. A return to the timeless wisdom that has made his first bestseller, "Harvey Penick's Little Red Book, " a modern classic, "The Game for a Lifetime" does not contain the technical swing tips and stance aids of today's instructional guides, but dispenses a philosophy on golf, and on life.

Harvey Penick knew that the teachings in his book would stand the test of time, and he spent his lifetime pursuing and enjoying all that the game has to offer -- physically, emotionally, and spiritually. "The Game for a Lifetime, " the final book by Harvey Penick, stands as a wonderful testimonial to this legendary career, his celebrated teaching style, and his ability to affect the lives of the people who had the good fortune to know him.
