Life was always getting in the way of Phil Robertson's passion for duck hunting.
An NFL bound quarterback playing ahead of Terry Bradshaw, Phil made his mark on Louisiana Tech University in the 1960s by playing football and completing his college career with a master's degreee in Education. But Phil's eyes were not often on the books or the ball; most of the time, they were looking to the sky.
Phil grew up with the dream of living the simple life off the land like his forebears, but he soon found himself on a path to self-destruction; leasing a bar, drinking all the time, fighting, and wasting his talents. He almost lost it all until he gave his life to God. And with that everything changed.
Phil's life story is structured around Rules for Living the Happy, Happy, Happy Life--such as "Don't let your kids grow up to be nerds," "Put the bottle down (you'll thank me in the morning)," "Never sell yourself short (you might become a millionaire)," and "It's cheaper to hire your relatives (unless you don't like them)."
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. With the love of his country, his family, and his maker, Phil has finally found the ingredients to the "happy, happy, happy" life he always wanted.
