Book Review
Duck Commander Family’s debut is perfectly timed to answer the long absent expression of robust, American households. 

Duck Commander Family is an exceedingly multi-purposed book that studies all stages of life issues, poverty, mental illness, personal management, personal holiness, relationships, parenting, honor, values, ethics and entrepreneurship.

Duck Commander Family is a wise entertainment choice, a book worth having. There is nothing in Duck Commander Family to ruin its value as a classic or keepsake (unlike the massive amounts of books discarded because of defunct subjects or false calculations for matters like The Cold War). Duck Commander Family is easy to read and features larger size printing, wide spacing and thick pages. 

“Duck Commander Family really delivers the goods; sincerity, adventure, humor and decent romance.” -TRF   

 For hardcore duck hunters, collectors and Duck Commander followers, Duck Commander Family’s seventeen, well ordered chapters provide the first, real attempt of continuity for the Duck Commander story.  Duck Commander Family provides real numbers for the Duck Commander business (start-up, investments, losses, volume, and revenue). The history and development of the Duck Commander game call is explained beginning with 19th century calls the Robertson’s owned and used before creating their own calls. The actual design, technique and tools used to create the first Duck Commander call is explained as well.     
For those interested in the Duckmen/Duck Commander hunting videos, Duck Commander Television shows or the Duck Dynasty series, this book explains how each of these came about, the people or parties involved, the evolution of production methods, the intricacies of hunting show business/finance and audience relations.   

The middle portion of Duck Commander Family is loaded with restored family photos. This photo section is color, glossy and very high quality. Each photo is a precious example of American culture and folkways.


“Phil would buy a fifty-five gallon drum of rotten cheese…
We had to reach our hands down into the drum to scoop the cheese and then shove it into an old sock,
gagging the entire time.
…and then Phil would go out and set out the traps.”
–Page 74 Duck Commander Family

For those who may have suspicions about the Robertson family, Duck Commander or Duck Dynasty’s purpose, for those who may think the Robertsons have become self-important, this book, Duck Commander Family, is remarkably unpretentious and based on the Robertson’s many failures and troubles. The book quickly brings everyone back down to earth and reinforces the importance of remaining grounded in a household of faith. Duck Commander Family provides evidence of the significance of applying one’s life to God’s word.  

 “I’ve told you these stories not to say  Look what I’ve done, but to say  Look what God’s done.  I give him all the glory.”
–Page 243 Duck Commander Family


If you have ever studied the Apostle Paul of the Bible, you have probably noticed he was regularly retelling the story of his conversion: his former life, the circumstances surrounding his conversion and how his life changed. Duck Commander Family is a bold example of personal testimony for the purpose of building trust and giving hope.

Duck Commander Family is broken down for the reader into what could be considered daily chapters, each featuring excerpts from Holy Scripture, a good number of these being from the Apostle Paul’s letters or the Pauline Epistles.

Other passages are taken from the Torah, Jewish History, later prophets, the Old Covenant, The life and sayings of King Solomon and the New Covenant:

  • Genesis 1:28/2:24
  • Deuteronomy 6:6-9
  • Joshua 24:15
  • Jeremiah 29:11
  • Proverbs 17:17/24:3-4/31:10-11, 28
  • Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
  • Acts 11:6-7
  • James 1:2-4
  • 1st Corinthians 13:4-5
