Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man’s Fundamentals for Delicious Living

Nick Offerman

When it comes to growing a robust mustache, masticating red meat, building a chair, or wooing a woman, who better to educate you 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 carpentry, Paddle Your Own Canoe features tales from Offerman’s childhood (born, literally, in the middle of an Illinois cornfield) to his theatre days in Chicago to the, frankly, magnificent seduction of his wife, Megan Mullally. Offerman also shares his hard-bitten battle strategies in the arenas of manliness, love, styles, and religion, and invaluable advice on getting the utmost pleasure out of woodworking, assorted meats, outdoor recreation, and other palatable entrees. ‘ Offerman not only explores his Paul Bunyan - like image with tongue-in-cheek lessons on manliness, complete with illustrations and advice, but also offers poignant memories of his childhood growing up in Illinois and hilarious anecdotes from his career.'Entertainment Weekly 'Equal parts memoir and advice for grabbing life by the gonads…sort of like reading Garrison Keillor if he wrote for Playboy.'Man Cave Daily 'Thought-provoking, profane, and frequently hilarious.'Publishers Weekly 'A memoir that is all at once touching, funny as sh*t, and capable of schooling you in…not being a total ass.'Newcity Lit
