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.

I use a computer actually two computers and a smart phone everyday and he makes a point of eschewing all technology. Nevertheless the book was a good "read". I'm glad God created a diversity in humankind that is interesting and humorous at the same time. I'm glad to hear of God's blessing in the Duck Commander's life.
Loves listening to his early years as a boy. it reminded me so much of my childhood. His stories kept me laughing and helps you see the big picture of life! I highly recommend this book! Al did a wonderful job narrating.
Loved it. Contrary to belief, people in the south, COUNTRY FOLK, are highly intelligent in the books with the addition of learning about TRUE LIFE. How to survive. Learn from mistakes and build upon it. Country people, for the most part, are nice, polite, and happy happy happy...
This book scared the bejeezus out of me, but I could not put the book down until I finished it. If you're a fan of the Exorcist or Amityville Horror, then this is the book for you!
I loved Alan's reading of his dad's raw and moving story. This is a book that gives you a wholesome look into a true American life that, not without bumps, adheres to old fashioned American spirit.
