Publisher's Summary

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.

Loved it, loved it, loved it!

Would you consider the audio edition of Happy, Happy, Happy to be better than the print version?

Yes, because both Al and Phil Robertson have perfect voices for narrating this subject matter, and it adds so much to the stories.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Happy, Happy, Happy?

I loved the part where he gave up professional football because it would interfere with duck hunting season, but I really enjoyed the spiritual discussions - and there were many of those.

Have you listened to any of Al Robertson and Phil Robertson ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, I haven't heard them before, but I would certainly listen to them again.

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

Yes. The stories and the way they are told are so entertaining I couldn't stop listening.

Any additional comments?

This is a great book for anyone who enjoys hunting and fishing. It's also a great book about how God uses you just the way you are to witness for Him. I found it deeply entertaining and encouraging.

Love this family!

Great story of a simply, happy, God loving family! You understand a lot more about this family after this book. I love them even more than before! Read in the beginning by Phil himself and then his oldest son takes over. Happy Happy Happy!

I was Surprised, surprised, surprised!

I bought this book on a whim as my family, myself included enjoy watching Duck Dynasty every Wednesday night. The history behind the family is interesting and will not bore you at all. I, nor my family (we listened in the car) never found the story boring or losing our interest. Fascinating to hear how the whole thing started. We will probably listen to it a few more times.

Great story, but not read by Phil

Would you listen to Happy, Happy, Happy again? Why?

Well it's a fantastic story, however I was hoping Phil was the reader. Phil does read the opening however that lasts but a few minutes then Al Robertson takes over the reading.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes! This book isn't just for duck hunters or hunters in general,this book is for those who do, or wish to have strong social morals and family values.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Happy, Happy, Happy?

When Phil was young and he considered his family "self-contained" or "self-supporting" because they lived off of what they had on their farm or found growing wild, or hunting. I was raised like that, and at the time I considered us poor, now I realize I was raised "organic"!

Which character – as performed by Al Robertson and Phil Robertson – was your favorite?

Phil Robertson

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Happy, Happy, Happy!

I am recommending this to lots of friends

What made the experience of listening to Happy, Happy, Happy the most enjoyable?

Because I downloaded and played it from my smart phone, it was always with me, and it made lots of minutes that might have been wasted profitable instead. The book was entertaining, inspirational, and believable.

Thanks to all who had a part in bringing it to the market. ESPECIALLY in an audio version.

What other book might you compare Happy, Happy, Happy to and why?

Randy Harris' book LIVING JESUS. An unusual look at the Sermon on the Mount.

Did Al Robertson and Phil Robertson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes, I don't know exactly how, but I no problem following as the writer switched persons often.

Scariest movie ever!

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!

Better stick to hunting Phil.

What would have made Happy, Happy, Happy better?

The Robertson family is inspirational and the show is entertaining. The book just didn't hold my interest. The writing style is very simplistic and ho hum. But it is nice to know the American Dream can still be a achieved...A+ for the entrepreneurial spirit, drive and hard work Phil! Happy, Happy, Happy, that Mrs. Kay lives with a better man that she started out with.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Unbroken
