Paddle Your Own CanoeTter to deliver this tutelage than the always charming always manly Nick Offerman best known as? If you are anything like me you first heard about this book because you've watched Parks and Rec than is strictly reasonable and Ron Swanson has made you laugh and cringe While I don't always agree with the cantankerous character he is nevertheless my favorite and I love Offerman's deadpan delivery I was very curious to know what a guy who can pull off such a fantastic mustache would have to say about delicious livingNow if you plan on reading this my advice is don't Get the audiobook read by Offerman His voice gravitas and occasional giggles make this memoirmanifestocollection of hilarious and excellent advice an incredibly entertaining experience I also think that his writing style might feel a bit ponderous on the page as where read out loud it is uite charming and fun Also easily offended ears beware there's a lot of cussing many discussions on the topic of oral sex and some very strong opinions about religion A lot of reviewers seem to have gotten their panties in a twist about that aspect of the book I didn't but mostly because I actually agree with his thoughts on organized religion in general and the weird fucked up version of Christianity too often encountered in certain regions of the US of A specifically He was preaching to the choir with me pun intended but I can see how anyone attached to their fixed ideas on faith and the Church would get upset by his thoughtsI already liked Offerman and listening to 10 odd hours of his thoughts made me like and respect him even the man is hilarious smart hard working kind hearted and a hopeless romantic I loved hearing his stories about growing up in rural Illinois learning his craft in college and eventually in Chicago and LA meeting his wife Megan Mullally and of course growing epic facial hair He also takes care to make sure his listeners know that despite a common love of pork products and fine scotches he is most definitely not Ron Swanson he eats salads for one thing and does not punch socialistsOfferman is uite opinionated but also humble than willing to admit that a lot of luck was necessary for his life to unfold the way it did and spends a lot of time expressing his gratitude to everyone who helped supported and encouraged him His love for art his family the various crafts he is passionate about and his darling wife really shines through his Rainbow Song My heart While his advice can occasionally feel a tad preachy it comes form a reasonable and well meaning place; it's just loaded with smart assery and sarcasm which I appreciate tremendouslyI had a lot of fun listening to this 4 and a half stars

Nick Offerman Ø Paddle Your Own Canoe eBook

T and much in his first book Growing a perfect moustache grilling red meat wooing a woman who be Find all of my reviews at anyone out there who wants to claim people who don’t enjoy Nick Offerman’s writings only fall on that side of the fence because they want a “Ron Swanson” book rather than a Nick Offerman book I have this to say Seriously though Nick Offerman IS Ron Swanson At least as far as his character traits go He grows a great mustache he enjoys eating animal carcasses washed down by fine brown liuors he builds shit and he’s married to Tammy The difference between Nick and Ron is Ron had Greg Daniels to make him funny and Nick isn’t a particularly humorous guy This book would be great if you’re one of Offerman’s family members a former classmate acuaintance etc because there’s a very good chance your name has been dropped somewhere If you’re a regular Joe like me whose only “in depth” knowledge of the man behind the legend is you’re kind of from the same neck of the woods and definitely know what it means to walk beans you might find this a little meh when all is said and done I appreciated his take on hot button topics such as politics and religion – and especially liked that he made his point without beating a dead horse about it – but at the end of the day it felt like I had been listening to him talk about pretty much nothing for around 11000 years by the time the audio was wrapped up On the bright side he has a marvelous speaking voice I highly recommend listening to him as part of the ensemble reading cast of Lincoln in the Bardo if given the opportunity
