I bought this book after reading a pre-release interview with Mr. Robertson. I knew that crazy Uncle Si was most likely an exaggerated character and was curious to find out about the Si behind the beard- so-to-speak.

Mr. Robertson's book was a real treat and reminded me of the late nights I spent growing up listening to my uncles (who were raised in similar circumstances) swapping stories. The stories of his childhood and adolescence were funny and endearing. The interjections of interesting facts and bad jokes woven into the stories only added the the entertainment factor. I particularly loved his stories about Vietnam. Despite the fact that it was obviously a difficult time in his life, Mr. Robertson's positive and cheerfully silly narrative was refreshing and inspiring. He doesn't pretend the war was sunshine and rainbows but he shares the interesting things that he experienced and is honest about his flaws without being depressingly down. My favorite part of the book, though, was when he wrote about his wife and his children and his faith. The warmth and tenderness of his love for his family is heartwarming. Far from the lazy, selfish, crazy Uncle Si character, Mr. Robertson thoroughly proves himself to be a hard-working, intelligent, and all-round grade A guy. His book is absolutely enjoyable from cover to cover and I'm a happier person for having read it.

This is a very quick and easy read. I read it during a 6 hour plane ride and it made the trip tolerable. There were some laugh out loud moments but not as many as I would have thought. He tells the story of his childhood, wife and kids, his military career and briefly touched on what really brought him to fame (which is not something he sought). I've read all three "Duck Dynasty" books and I'd rate this one No. 2. Willie's book gives you the real background of Duck Dynasty. If you are a fan of the show -- you will enjoy it.

I must be one of the last remaining Americans never to have seen the show Duck Dynasty. Last year my son came home from school one day to report excitedly that Uncle Si was at his school, I had to seek further explanation. Turns out Uncle Si is one of the stars of the hit TV show, and his daughter was one of my son's teachers. Now that the Robertsons have firmly ensconced themselves at such a prominent place in popular culture, I decided to read Uncle Si's book and find out what he's all about.

So I learned that Uncle Si is a funny guy who tells good stories, which, apparently, why he is so popular on the show. Would his life story merit publication, were it not for a reality show about a family business which makes duck calls? Not likely. He tells some entertaining tales from his childhood and his time in Vietnam, and he has plenty of pithy sayings and throw away lines. I enjoyed his good-old-boy tone, and was amused by his take on the truthfulness of the tall-sounding tales he tells: "At my age, a few of the details are cloudy, but I'll recollect the coming stories as best I can. Hey, just remember it isn't a lie if you think it's true!"

Duck Dynasty fans will want to read Uncle Si's wit and wisdom in Si-Cology 1. But general readers will want to take this book for what it is: a celebrity book published to capitalize on a TV show's incredible success. I will say this: if I ever find myself, for whatever reason, stuck in a duck blind, it would be much more enjoyable with Uncle Si along.

Thanks to Edelweiss and the publisher for the complimentary electronic review copy!

Uncle Si is hilarious on the show Duck Dynasty. In this book he's telling the story of his life. He does have some funny quotes, but it's not the same. His comedic wit is best when it's taken in context of what everyone else is doing on the show. Still an interesting read to get the background of who he is.

It was a hoot. Those Robertson's are hilarious. They will do almost anything. A must read. Read it twice, at least.

Format: Hardcover
Silas Merritt Robertson is one of the stars in the popular A&E television series, Duck Dynasty--shows that makes grin and laugh out loud. It is entertainment that the whole family can watch and enjoy together because the content is wholesome and hilarious.

Like his brother Phil's book, Happy, Happy, Happy: My Life and Legacy as the Duck Commander, author Mark Schlabach has done an excellent job helping Si tell his story in this fun filled 229-page read, Si-Cology 1: Tales & Wisdom from Duck Dynasty's Favorite Uncle.

Until now, not many people knew that Si is married to Christine and they have two married Children and seven grandchildren.

A Vietnam Veteran, Silas retired from the Army on January 31, 1993 after twenty-four years of service where he met Christine Raney for the first time in November 1969 and finally married on April 7, 1971 after discharged from his first hitch in the Army.

Kentucky native, Christine and her first husband divorced after Doctor's told her she was barren. Nevertheless, on August 30, 1975 Silas and Christine's first baby girl, Trasa was born followed by the birth of their son, Scott on December 18, 1977.

Trasa and her husband Kyle Cobern have four sons: Silas, Caden, Jaxon and McCrae. Scott and his wife Marsha also have four sons: Ethan, twins Connor and Logan and Wyatt. The youngest was just born in July 2013.

For those of you who watch Duck Dynasty, you already know that Si is a funny guy full of stories that will have you cracking up with laughter in short order.

While there are some serious moments within the 30 chapters of this book and the afterword letters from his family to him, I am guessing that Si's humor here will do the same and put this book on the best seller lists if it is not there already. "...And That's a Fact Jack!"

Enjoy!
