Happy, Happy, Happy by Phil Robertson

Goodreads Summary:

This no-holds-barred autobiography chronicles the remarkable life of Phil Robertson, the original Duck Commander and Duck Dynasty star, from early childhood through the founding of a family business. Life was always getting in the way of Phil Robertson’s passion for duck hunting.

An NFL-bound quarterback, Phil made his mark on Louisiana Tech University in the 1960s by playing football and completing his college career with a master’s degree in English. But Phil’s eyes were not always on the books or the ball; they were usually looking to the sky.

Phil grew up with the dream of living the simple life off the land like his forebears, but he soon found himself on a path to self-destruction—leasing a bar, drinking too much, fighting, and wasting his talents. He almost lost it all until he gave his life to God. And then everything changed.

Phil’s incredible story tells how he followed a calling from God and soon after invented a duck call that would begin an incredible journey to the life he had always dreamed of for himself and his family. With great love for his country, his family, and his maker, Phil has finally found the ingredients to the “good life” he always wanted.

My Thoughts:

OK, so I’m a HUGE Duck Dynasty fan!!!!!!! Took me forever to watch it for the 1st time. Had been hearing about it last year from one of my 5th grade students, but I just didn’t think I would really like it. BOY-was I wrong! 🙂

Watched my 1st episode and THANK GOODNESS they had a marathon after that!!

Now I’m hooked and LOVE IT.

Wholesome REAL family life. With lots of my kind of humor-sarcasm!

This book was all about Phil’s life and decision to turn to God. So it’s sprinkled with some of his dry humor, but don’t expect it to read like the show watches. Do expect to read about his hard knocks with real life and his admissions about his not so nice self.

He references the Bible SEVERAL times which I love. He’s a God fearing and God loving man.

And at the end of the book- a letter from each of his kids and Mrs. Kay. I love how they did that. It wrapped it up so nicely.

4 out of 5 stars
