Title: Happy, Happy, Happy
Author: Phil Robertson with Mark Schlabach
Where Stacie’s Copy Came From: Oshkosh Public Library
Plot Basics: Duck Dynasty is a wildly popular show on A&E. Getting there didn’t always make everyone happy, happy, happy. But Phil’s overview of life and what it took to get there explains the popularity of the show.
Banter Points: Duck Dynasty is a must watch at my house. It doesn’t matter if we’ve seen the episode before or are watching it for the first time, we are tuned in.
One of the best things about the Robertsons is their humbleness. They may be milliionaires, but hey, they are normal people with crazy relatives. In this book, Phil explains exactly how normal they are, including the troubles that he got into as a newly wed.
Personally, Miss Kay is my hero. I cannot imagine going through the stuff that she did with the smiles that she has. Her faith and love is what changed their lives. Their ability to love, learn and preach is astounding. I wish there were more role models like her on television, instead of some of the alternatives.
Bummer Points: The books is pretty high level. I’m confident selling duck calls didn’t go as smoothly as Phil makes it sound, yet, the gory details wouldn’t have added to the message of the book.
Stacie’s Recommendation: Great book. Mark Schlabach really captured Phil’s voice and story telling skills. Between the wonderful message and the great writing technique, this one is worth checking out.
