You know him from the hit A&E show Duck Dynasty - now you can enjoy Uncle Si's tall tales, crazy exploits, and quirky one-liners in one raucous collection!
"These hands are so fast, I can get your wallet before you know it. In a minute, you'll be standing there buck naked and won't know what hit you!"
"Look here - if it wasn't for my tripped knee, I'd be playing in the NBA today."
Any of these sound familiar? If they do - or even if they don't - you're in for a good laugh. The brother of patriarch Phil Robertson, Uncle Si has a limitless supply of stories about his childhood, duck hunting adventures, his days in Vietnam, and everything in between. Now the best of those tales are gathered into this roaring collection.
Si shares stories of the more than 25 marriage proposals he's received in the mail (some with photos!), how he came to use a green Tupperware cup for his ever-present sweet tea, and how his cigarette smoke made a deer cough (he's since quit smoking). And in many of these never-before-heard tales, Si openly talks about his wife and two children - who are never seen and rarely mentioned on the show.
Si's one-liners are sure to please die-hard fans and curious newbies alike. In no time, this smattering of zany stories will have you falling over with laughter and retelling them to all your friends.

Yes I will. I started this book at 10pm and 4 hours later I finished it. Good solid reading. Family values come thruout. I could relate to so much since I was raised on a farm outside Sweet Home Tx in the 40s and 50s. We had and still have strong family values. Thanks for a great book.
Si. Just because he's a good guy and his wife should be declared a sain r.
Botha good read
It's no wonder that Sy's family adore him. He's a great story teller. He reminds me of my grandfather. What a wonderful family you have.
Not sure if it Jase or Jep reading it, but he is NOT a very good reader. Makes it hard to listen. Only for the stories do I keep listening.
Yes its really interesting If your a Si Robertson fan this is a must listen to book.I enjoyed it very much. really enjoyed the last part letters from his wife and kids. He seems like a really decent fellow despite his joking nature
The Nam stories especially the one about Charlie stealing the Engine
I liked when Si talked about his thoughts being his own as long as his wife approved or revised em.
Its on Like Bing Bong Jack!
Si of course
Yes, Jase was a bit difficult to listen to so I listened in shorter spurts than I did Happy Happy Happy. I like Jase but as a good narrator, not so much.
No way could I have done that, best to listen in small does
Great to learn what made Si the man he is. He was much more grounded throughout his life than Phil. The Viet Nam stories were OK but what did it for me the most was the ending where Si told us about his faith. The letters from his darling dear wife was so touching. Also the letters from his kids. I commend Si for keeping his kids and wife off of Duck Dynasty, allows them to maintain their privacy. Si is someone I would love to know in person, what a wonderful man and his silliness and HEY just adds so much to his personality, that all came out in the book. Carry on Si.
The Robertson Clan does a fantastic job of story-telling. May God bless them for sharing with us.
I liked it better because parts of the book were read by the author, which has an accent that adds to the story. I wish Si would have read the whole book.
It is very funny!
This book is a great story and the famous uncle Si.
Si' s attitude toward things
It would have been awesome if Si would have read the entire book himself
Excellent book with great stories especially if you were raised in the South. Nephew is good but wish Si spoke through the whole book. Hearing him tell the stories would have made this book superb!
