Happy, Happy, Happy by Phil Robertson
If you’ve watched the exceedingly popular A&E® program Duck Dynasty®, you already know the famed Phil Robertson. As patriarch of the Robertson clan and creator of Duck Commander duck calls, he fearlessly leads his family in a responsible work ethic and an active faith.
But what you don’t know is his life before the show. In the pages of this book, you’ll learn of Phil’s colorful past and his wild road to the “happy, happy, happy” life he leads today. Before the “happy,” Phil’s passion for the outdoors and wild living led him down some shady paths. As a young husband and father, he became the proprietor of a rough bar and lived a life, as he says, of “romping, stomping, and ripping” for a number of years. He even left his wife and young boys for a short period of time.
Through it all, Phil Robertson has lived his life as a “called” man. Called to live off the land, called to leave a starring role in Louisiana Tech football (playing ahead of Terry Bradshaw) for duck hunting, called to wild living, called to create a new kind of duck call—and finally, called to follow God and lead a life of faith.
In this eye-opening and rousing book, you’ll find stories that will shock you, as well as those that will inspire you. You’ll get to know the man behind the legend, and you’ll come away better for it.
Happy, Happy, Happy, by Phil Robertson, is a happy read filled with family struggles and solutions to overcome them. It is based on true lives and is sincere in its presentation. I found the characters to be interesting and likeable, although a bit extreme to my own experiences. It is clear that not only every individual, but also every family takes a different path through life and seeks its own peace and happiness. I always enjoy reading about the journeys of others, and especially when they are so different than my own, so I highly recommend this book.
Length: 240 Pages
