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.

LIVING THE DREAM

Duck calls-though the source of his livelihood-are not what makes Phil Robertson the man he is today. When asked what matters in his life, he's quick to say, "Faith, family, ducks-in that order."

It isn't often that a person can live a dream, but Phil Robertson, aka The Duck Commander, has proven that it is possible with vision, hard work, helping hands, and an unshakable faith in the Almighty. Phil's is the remarkable story of one man who followed the call he received 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. In the love of his country, his family, and his maker, Phil has finally found the ingredients to the "good life" he always wanted.

If you ever wind up sitting face-to-face with Phil, you'll see that his enthusiasm and passion for duck hunting and the Lord is no act-it is truly who he is.

If you've watched the exceedingly popular A&E® program Duck Dynasty®, you already know the famed Phil Robertson. As patriarch of the Robertson clan and creator of Duck Commander duck calls, he fearlessly leads his family in a responsible work ethic and an active faith.

But what you don't know is his life before the show. In the pages of this book, you'll learn of Phil's colorful past and his wild road to the "happy, happy, happy" life he leads today. Before the "happy," Phil's passion for the outdoors and wild living led him down some shady paths. As a young husband and father, he became the proprietor of a rough bar and lived a life, as he says, of "romping, stomping, and ripping" for a number of years. He even left his wife and young boys for a short period of time.

Through it all, Phil Robertson has lived his life as a "called" man. Called to live off the land, called to leave a starring role in Louisiana Tech football (playing ahead of Terry Bradshaw) for duck hunting, called to wild living, called to create a new kind of duck call-and finally, called to follow God and lead a life of faith.

In this eye-opening and rousing book, you'll find stories that will shock you, as well as those that will inspire you. You'll get to know the man behind the legend, and you'll come away better for it.

Read from the Book

Happy, Happy, Happy LOW-TECH MAN Rule No. 1 for Living Happy, Happy, Happy Simplify Your Life (Throw Away Your Cell Phones and Computers, Yuppies) What ever happened to the on-and-off switch? I don’t ask for much, but my hope is that someday soon we’ll get back to where we have a switch that says on and off. Nowadays, everything has a pass code, sequence, or secret decoder. I think maybe the yuppies overdid it with these computers. The very thing they touted as the greatest time-saving device in history—a computer—now occupies the lion’s share of everybody’s life. Here’s a perfect example: I owned a Toyota Tundra truck for a while, and I got tired of driving around with my headlights on all the time. If I’m driving around in the woods and it’s late in the evening, I don’t want my headlights on. I tried to turn the lights off and couldn’t do it. I spent an hour inside the truck with a friend of mine trying to turn off the lights, but we never figured it out. So I called the car dealer, and he told me to look in the owner’s manual. Well, it wasn’t in the book, which is about as thick as a Bible. Finally, about ten days later, after my buddy spent some time with a bunch of young bucks in town driving Toyota trucks, he told me he had the code for turning off my lights. Now, get this: First, you have to shut off the truck’s engine. Then you have to step on the emergency brake with your left foot un
