Nick Offerman: The man behind the mustache Nick Offerman may be most known for playing the stone-faced, government-hating Ron Swanson on NBC's Parks and Recreation, but he's also an proficient comedian and stage actor (not to mention woodworker). He's currently on tour with his wife Megan

The awed four: Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally have played two of the most momentous sitcom characters ever — she as the sozzled and savage Karen Walker on “Will & Grace,” and he as the bacon-scarfing, guidance-hating, man's man Ron Swanson on “Parks and

Spank Your Own Canoe Parks and Leisure activity actor Nick Offerman shares his humorous fulminations on life, manliness, meat, and much more in his first book. Growing a perfect moustache, grilling red basics, 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 side-splitting 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 really 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 industrious-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, doctrinaire 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, review a few sycamore leaves, and maybe even hand craft (and paddle) their own canoes.

A Key to Living Deliciously

Beat Your Own Canoe. A Book by Nick Offerman. Having become an avid fan through his work as easily the funniest part of NBC’s Parks and Recreation and more recently his humorist specialized American Ham (available on Netflix), when I heard Nick Offerman had written a book, I knew I had to read it. Sure enough, being the grade-A parents... Having now finished Beat Your Own Canoe: One Man’s Fundamentals for Delicious Living, I must say it was most delicious indeed. Well, for the most part at least, but I’m getting up ahead of myself. The book, which is equal-parts autobiographical memoir and philosophical essay, is if nothing among the most unique name books I’ve ever come across. The basic idea (sharing many similarities with American Ham ) behind the project is to assemble a collection of stories from Offerman’s past, showing his path to personal and professional success and every milestone along the way. Having done this, Nick then takes a to take action further attempting, as he explains in an interview with USA Today , “the notion that I might impart some advice to the reader. ” To do this, Offerman relies on the multitudinous elements of his self-described “thesis” to get his message across, each of which comes with both many triumphs as well as shortcomings. The most distinguishing of these elements, at least initially, is the laws’s organization. He begins each of the 16 chapters with a story of some stage in his life, each of which he follows up with an essay detailing the philosophy and deeper concepts he hoped to showcase in the earlier memoir. I’m not sure how much about Mr. Offerman you know but he is quite simply a freaking genius. Over this span of time living in one of the most corruptible cities one could realize themselves in, he never once lost the moral principles and zest for life that was instilled in him in childhood. As opposed to allow the area of fame to crush his individuality and self-worth, he instead took the tried-and-true ideas of what it means to live a justifiably, and individually, worthwhile existence and applied it to each and every new trial and tribulation. In doing this, Offerman has somehow figured out a way to see past his art, past his (for years predetermined) screen time and discover the truths behind the modern American way of life. somehow managing to become both a household designation, and a decent and in many ways normal guy. The aim behind the accompanying essays within Paddle Your Own Canoe is to suggest the ways in which he has maintained this happy and upright way of life in hopes that those who read them may take from his experience methods in which they could themselves better their existence. Firstly, the unexpected reader may bargain some of these ramblings rather preachy (this is especially and unfortunately true in the first couple chapters). I found, in reading just a handful of other reader’s responses to the rules online, that this was among the top reason many who started the book could not bring themselves to finish it. It takes a bit of adjusting to but I personally found that at one go I got used to reading the pieces for...
