    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....

    I think many of us who watch "Duck Dynasty" know that even though Phil doesn't usually have a whole lot to say, there is a lot going on with this man behind the scenes. This book confirms that. It's a really inspiring story and having completed it I feel like I have a positive role model to follow after. Great book!

  • Napoleon Hill's Outwitting the Devil: The Secret to Freedom and Success

    Story

    In 1938, just after publication of his all-time best-seller Think and Grow Rich, Napoleon Hill revealed that he had broken the Devil’s Code, forcing him to confess his secrets. The resulting manuscript - Outwitting the Devil - proved so controversial, it was hidden for more than 70 years. Now, Sharon Lechter brings us this important book, annotating and editing it for a contemporary audience. Using his legendary ability to get to the root of human potential, Hill digs deep to identify the greatest obstacles we face in reaching our personal goals....

    Story

    Timeless advice and truly genius insights of Napoleon hill are regularly and even frequently interrupted by Mrs. Lechter. It's a lot like coming to a conference to hear Albert Einstein speak and having a high school student on stage frequently interrupt and give their knee-jerk insights.....and this happens every 5 minutes. Each time this woman speaks I am ripped out of my zone of concentration and utterly annoyed. I quit listening to this audiobook twice because of this woman, finally just powering through it because of the wisdom of Napoleon Hill. The book is ahead of its time to say the least but I would pay 3 credits to NOT have Mrs. Lechter's comments involved.
    I bought the physical book in order to avoid this womans comments and THEY ARE THERE TOO! At least in the book they are in italics and therefore easy to skip.
    Let me please quote my audible rantings while driving to Mrs. Lechter. SHUT UP! SHUT UP!!!! SHHHHUUUTT UPPPPP!!!!!

    America faces a full-scale socioeconomic collapse in the near future. The stock market plummets, hyperinflation cripples commerce and the mounting crisis passes the tipping point. Practically overnight, the fragile chains of supply and high-technology infrastructure fall, and wholesale rioting and looting grip every major city.

    Story
    If you could sum up Patriots in three words, what would they be?

    I can't speak highly enough about this book. It combines a highly detailed survival manual complete with tactics, specific equipment, philosophy and community into a highly entertaining story. After quickly being absorbed in a fantastic and thrilling story you realize. Wow, I'm being educated here. It's also cutting edge stuff.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The story keeps you riveted in large part because of the real plausibility of the events. Everything from how the collapse begins to initial and misguided attempts to re-start government are quite realistic.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I don't think it's possible to absorb the contents of this book in one sitting. I ended up buying the Kindle version also so that I could more easily reference the details later. I intend on listening again after I finish the sequel "The Survivors".

    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    Would you consider the audio edition of No Easy Day to be better than the print version?

    The narration really added a lot to the delivery of the story. I prefer this to the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of No Easy Day?

    I was particularly impressed with the insights into the life of Navy SEALS and the details of their day-to-day life. The account of the killing of Osama Bin Laden was just a bonus.


    What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

    He sounds like a convincing SEAL and has good inflection.
