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.

LIVING THE DREAM

Duck calls-though the source of his livelihood-are not what makes Phil Robertson the man he is today. When asked what matters in his life, he's quick to say, "Faith, family, ducks-in that order."

It isn't often that a person can live a dream, but Phil Robertson, aka The Duck Commander, has proven that it is possible with vision, hard work, helping hands, and an unshakable faith in the Almighty. Phil's is the remarkable story of one man who followed the call he received 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. In the love of his country, his family, and his maker, Phil has finally found the ingredients to the "good life" he always wanted.

If you ever wind up sitting face-to-face with Phil, you'll see that his enthusiasm and passion for duck hunting and the Lord is no act-it is truly who he is.

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.

Very inspirational, and incredible once you look at where the Robertsons started from. So amazing to read Phil's journey through the tough years of his childhood, the bad years when he first married Kay, and his renewed, redeemed life after he asked God for forgiveness and help. His faith is something I greatly admire and strive for. I love how straight forward he is, not caring to waste time with anything unnecessary, and how strong he is in his beliefs.

A very quick, but interesting and insightful read. If you love the TV show Duck Dynasty, this is a must-read for you. The family may act like fools on television, but they are most certainly not!

What the Almighty is saying is that no matter how sorry and low-down somebody might be, everybody's worth something. But you're never going to turn them if you're as evil as they are. If you're good to them, you might appeal to their conscience--if they have any conscience. Now, there are some people who might be so mean you probably can't be good to them. But most people are perplexed after someone is good to them when he should have been mean. Most of the time, they end up giving up their evil ways.

I'd take all the money we're sending to the Middle East, where we're trying to pay people to be our friends, and divert it to Canada and earmark it to help raise ducks. We don't need to be sending money to the Middle East;...The Canadians are already our friends...So when I'm elected president, we're going to lower taxes and make sure we give the Canadians truckloads of cash to raise mallard ducks.

Have you ever seen a macho man walking around with a cell phone, mashing it with his fingers and yakking on it all day? That's too much talking. By the time these kids are young adults, they're going to have to go to Walmart to buy a personality.
