The story keep me engaged the whole time I listened to it. I found the most enjoyable part of this story was the flow of it. I enjoyed hearing about Phil's journey from his humble youth to his not so success after college years to his very successful later adulthood.
The most memorable moment of this book is that Phil took risk several times and never lost faith in himself that he would make it big someday. It was this strong self confidence in himself that led him to buy his first oversized lathe to make his design of duck call. The most moving part of this story was the business man that lent Phil his start up many for Duck Commander so he could purchase the lathe and make his first batch of calls. This really says a lot about humanity and how there are really generous and great people out there.
I have only watch the popular T.V. show but I have not heard any of Al or Phil's other works. I was very happy, happy, happy with this audio book and made me think more of how strong families can help strengthen each member in it. In American society the strong family bonds are breaking down in the fast paced lives most of us live. This is why the Robertson's are so entertaining because they are a dying breed of family. There family values set them apart from your run of the mill family because they stay close to each other and share in all each others life experiences such as religion and professions.
The title for this book would be the most original and catching tag line because it is Phil.
With the shear length of this book; the only way I could make it through it would only be in the audible version.
I truly found Truman's whole life journey fascinating and memorable. I was surprised to see how much influence over politics that the big bosses of the time had and how they would cheat at the poles. Truman's story is inspiring because its a tail of a farm boy with out much money and becomes vice president and then president. This is the true American dream.
It is hard to narrow down a favorite moment but I found his courage on the enemy lines of the war with the Germans a great scene. Truman in the chaos of the night and the desertion of some of his troops found courage enough to stand his ground with a few and regroup and secure themselves and armory.
The way in which Truman's story was presented it pulls you into the mans life. I found my self feeling happy with Truman's success and upset with his failures. This is a way to know that you have found something worth listening to and Truman's story was worth it.
