Parks and Recreation actor Nick Offerman shares his humorous fulminations on life, manliness, meat, and much more in his first book.Growing a perfect moustache, grilling red meat, wooing a woman—who better to deliver this tutelage than the always charming, always manly Nick Offerman, best known as Parks and Recreation’s Ron Swanson? Combining his trademark comic voice and very real expertise in woodworking—he runs his own woodshop—Paddle Your Own Canoe features tales from Offerman’s childhood in small-town Minooka, Illinois—“I grew up literally in the middle of a cornfield”—to his theater days in Chicago, beginnings as a carpenter/actor and the hilarious and magnificent seduction of his now-wife Megan Mullally. It also offers hard-bitten battle strategies in the arenas of manliness, love, style, religion, woodworking, and outdoor recreation, among many other savory entrees.A mix of amusing anecdotes, opinionated lessons and rants, sprinkled with offbeat gaiety, Paddle Your Own Canoe will not only tickle readers pink but may also rouse them to put down their smart phones, study a few sycamore leaves, and maybe even hand craft (and paddle) their own canoes.

The first thing to remember is that Nick Offerman is not Ron Swanson. There are some great similarities, and certainly he projects a similar earthy / by your bootstraps vibe... it's written in a like style to Swanson's speech patterns. It's a challenge to not hear his voice when reading the text. I ...

tl;dr - |✭✭✭✭✩ | I quite enjoyed this audiobook. There were some funny moments, but as it was listed in the humor section at my work, I did expect a bit more humor than was present in the book. Otherwise a fun story, and interesting to learn hear about his life. Description Nick Offerman's book is f...

Funny stories interspersed with life lessons. I think that if I were a man, I would have enjoyed it more.

Read with hope for: a) good time and laughs b) useful wisdom It was funny. But I had this feeling of ukk (like a morbidness),.. it wasn't enjoyable enough to surpass that ukk feeling, so I eventually after a few chapters, skimmed through the rest. Also...it reinforces such values as patriarch...
