Phil Robertson, Duck Commander patriarch  known for duck calls and the TV show Duck Dynasty, has written a new book called, Happy, Happy, Happy.  It is due for release on May 7, 2013 from Howard Books, the Christian book division of Simon and Schuster.

Happy, Happy, Happy is Robertson’s autobiography, which he wrote with Mark Schlabach. He recounts his childhood, his college days and his turbulent young adulthood. He tells how he created his famous duck call, and how he turned that simple product into a multimillion dollar family business. Today, Robertson is reportedly worth over $5 million and his son, Willie, who is the CEO of Duck Commander, has a reported net worth of  over $10 million. Other family members have also profited from the family business.

Robertson’s other boys, Jase and  Jep are active in the operation of the family business and are on the A&E reality TV program. Another son, Alan, is a clergyman and does not appear on the show. Robertson’s wife “Miss Kay” is featured on the show, as is “Si,” Robertson’s tea-drinking younger brother, who is a Vietnam veteran.

Robertson likes to portray himself as a Louisiana redneck, but he was the Louisiana Tech University starting quarterback when Terry Bradshaw, who went on to NFL glory, was also on the team. Robertson completed a master’s degree in English and became a teacher. Later, he operated a bar, began drinking heavily, and went on a downhill slide.

Robertson says he almost lost it all until he gave his life to Jesus Christ. He tells that story, or at least part of it in this book trailer. The complete story is in his book.

Robertson has a great love for his country, his family, and God, and is living the “good life” he always wanted, and to which many other people aspire. Happy, Happy, Happy is likely to become a bestseller.

    The show will not be the same without Phil. Phil , Jase, and Si are the show. Duck dynasty is my favorite show, I never miss it. Phil is a good Christian man. I love that family. I do have my favorites. Phil, Miss Kay, Jase, and of course Si. I like the fact that Phil and Miss Kay didn’t let all that money change them. Can’t really say that about the rest of them. Who wants to live in a mansion anyway? Live like you have always lived, live real. I agree with Phil and Miss Kay: stay grounded. God bless you all as a close family.

    Happy, Happy, Happy is an excellent book. It took me back to my childhood, as I too was raised very poor and living off the land. I purchased several copies to give to my grandchildren so they can read and see what other people have been through and how God has brought them out. It is very important that people don’t forget where they come from and to give God the Glory for what he has done in their lives. If no other message is conveyed to those who read this book, it is the message that God can reach down to the lowest and raise them to uttermost heights. May God continue to bless and prosper you and your family.
