Si-cology 1: Tales and Wisdom from Duck Dynasty’s Favorite Uncle is written by Si Robertson and read by Jay Stone. About a year ago I began hearing the words Duck Dynasty and I was skeptical when told it was the best show on TV. I finally decided I would watch to see if it was really good or all hype. I now admit to being a Duck Dynasty fan. My DVR is set so that I never miss an episode. Of course I had to review this book; after all, Uncle Si is my favorite character.
When you first see Si your focus will go to his appearance - a lopsided beard, thick glasses, and a Tupperware glass either in his hand or back pocket. But that is only the outside…when he begins to speak and he does that a lot, you know that he is actually very wise and very funny. His jokes aren’t very good and yet they make me laugh. His stories are heartwarming and always told in a jolly and optimistic manner. There are phrases that are pure Si-speak. He has received marriage proposals from complete strangers. Si is a strong family man and makes it clear that he is married and loves his wife and children very much.
One of my favorite stories has to do with Si attending college. He really did not want to go but his parents insisted. He played around, missed class, and never opened a book. At the last minute, he realized that maybe he should have put in a little effort. He spent the next 72 hours cramming for his final. He fell asleep during the test and at the last fifteen minutes of class his teacher woke him up. Knowing he did not have enough time to read the questions he chose the C theory…mark C as all the answers. He did so well on the test he was offered a full scholarship for the next year.
Many may call this book pure entertainment but I found it to be much more. Si is very intelligent and very wise. We all need an Uncle Si.
