About the Author

Si Robertson, one of the stars of A&E’s Duck Dynasty, has worked and hunted for Duck Commander since retiring from the United States Army in 1993. Before he became America’s favorite uncle through his appearances on Duck Dynasty, Si spent his time making all the reeds for the Duck Commander calls and working with Phil to prepare for the next duck season. Now he spends most of his time filming and traveling around the country doing events. But no matter how busy his life gets, he always makes time to sit in the blind with his buddies and hunt. Si lives in West Monroe, Louisiana, with his wife Christine.

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.

I had always LOVED Uncle Si on the show but after reading his book, my admiration and respect (and just warm fuzzies) for him just increased by leaps and bounds. What an interesting life!! His obvious love for his family is not to be taken lightly...and he is an inspiration! He has a remarkable sense of humor and his stories are so funny and heart-warming. If you want to read a book that is full of humor, good values and just plain FUN...read this book! This is a wonderful. heart-warming read! Love you Uncle Si...wish you were MY Uncle!

This is a short enjoyable book about the life of Si Robertson... "Duck Dynasty's Favorite Uncle". To fans of the show... a lot will seem familiar... until you realize that "old-Si"... has allowed the reader to go way beyond the quirky, lovable, character seen on TV. Si shares his childhood and all the inherent love and obstacles in a family growing up in the Louisiana "country". His life was built around hunting... fishing... sports... and a great love of G-d. All of his tales are interspersed with the off-the-wall-humor that he bubbles over with on every show... but bares much more of his faith and belief in Jesus.

As an honorably discharged veteran myself... I find it kind of funny... that the dizzily undisciplined Si wound up becoming a military "lifer"... it almost seems like an oxymoron. And as Si himself would say: "That's a fact Jack!"

For about eight years of my life... Louisiana was almost a second home to my son and I... and to this day the greatest fishing adventures we ever had were in Louisiana... and there is no second place. And whenever I talk to anyone about those days... I always start off by saying: "There's a reason it says **SPORTSMAN'S PARADISE** on their license plates!

And with that in mind... along with stories of Si's human family... the rest of the book is filled with stories about... fish... squirrels... rabbits... blackbirds... chickens... foxes... dogs... pigeons... bullfrogs... snakes... deer... alligators... wolves... coyotes... wild pigs... bumblebees... skunks...

In fact... I don't know what Si hated or feared more... school.... (To quote Si: "some of the most educated idiots I've ever met have a master's degree or PhD. They couldn't pour urine out of a boot with the instructions written on the heel!") ... or snakes!

Though this a "wildly" enjoyable read... the closing pages of the book are letters of love from his wife... daughter... and son.
