When a champion of manliness wants to bestow upon you his 'Fundamentals for Delicious Living' you evaluate your position in life and either run away like a pansy or snap-to attention. In Nick Offerman's book "Paddle Your Own Canoe" he walks you through what life was like on his journey to greatness. You'll step away feeling the urge to indulge in a fine bottle of scotch, afterwards felling a tree onto a cow, butcher said cow while the meat's good and tenderized from the tree felling tenderization process, prepare the meat and after the meal, head back to the tree to carve out a fine canoe with your Swiss Army knife. There are only three books every household needs, a dictionary when you want to take something complex and walk away with an understanding; religious text, when you want to take something complex and make it more complex, and Nick Offerman's book, for when you want answers to live like a steak...delicious.
Keep an eye out for Mr. Offerman's next work of art "Grumption: Relighting the Torch of Freedom with America's Gutsiest Troublemakers" due out this summer.
