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.

Phil Robertson, founder of the Duck Commander business, lets us into his life in Happy, Happy, Happy: My Life and Legacy as the Duck Commander. We are taken behind the scenes of what you see on Duck Dynasty and finally understand why they are the way they are.
Phil takes us on a journey starting with the time he wasnâ??t such a Christian. His early days were spent drinking and getting into trouble until he found God at the age of 28. From then on he decided to live a life by the gospel. Phil is very up front about his mistakes and it is the reason he is the man he is today. He stands his ground when he believes he is right but when he is wrong he will admit it. He and Ms. Kay instill in their children the Christian way of living along with the skills to live off the land.
I did not watch Duck Dynasty much before listening to this audiobook. Now I enjoy the television show. There is more than meets the eye in this family and I see the entire clan in a different way. I may not agree with everything that they do or believe but at the core this is a family that base their life on living it the best way they know how.
