Publisher Description

Parks and Recreation actor and Making It co-host Nick Offerman shares his humorous fulminations on life, manliness, meat, and much more in this New York Times bestseller.

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.

Dave Barry Like

I used to read Dave Barry, a comedic writer whose style was very similar to Offermans, straightforward with interesting analogies I would have never have thought of.

The book is delightful and has a readable rhythm that gets changed up ever so often so as not to be bored or mired in predictability.

The book was longer than expected which was a good thing, especially the parts when he has self realizations.

Pick it up it will open your world.

It is what it is

I really enjoyed the book and found it insightful and funny. If you have no idea who Nick Offerman is or what's he's about you may want to look into it before you read the book or write a poor review cause you did not agree with the authors philosophy on life in a book which he clearly states he is going to rant about life

Wish I would have read the sample.

It's about a guy who had all the ingredients to become a man, but LA just made another hippy with a mustache. Wish I could get my money back.
