My review of Happy, Happy, Happy by Phil Robertson
Seldom do I read a book cover to cover without stopping, but that’s what I did with “Happy, Happy, Happy”; once I started reading I just could not put it down.
I will admit that I am a HUGE fan of the Duck Dynasty T.V. show, having followed the Robertson family since the show was first televised. Quirky (or quacky as the case may be :), the family antics are humourous and entertaining, but also filled with pathos and laced with family values and Godly wisdom.
Phil Robertson, the patriarch of the Robertson clan, writes a book that does not detour from the message and ministry of the T.V. show. God is glorified throughout the book. In fact he admits wholeheartedly that the prime reason for the book and their popular T.V. show is to draw people closer to God.
The book is the powerful testimony of a man who struggled with alcohol and anger until, as Phil says, he “repented” and God powerfully changed his life. It was after his conversion that he sought to invent the best duck call and with God’s direction able to see his dream realized.
This is a book that is filled with redneck wit, hard-working know-how, and family devotion. I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish!
