Nick Offerman is kind of a jerk wad.

If you are a theatre person or improviser, as well as a fan of Nick Offerman's work on "Parks and Recreation" I think you will get the most out of this volume. It is brash, honest, and offers no apologies for his vices, mistakes, carousing, and trouble-making. If you are into sarcasm, party stories, and the long battle to make it in the entertainment industry this is for you. Also, whiskey and wood. All kinds of wood. Not all kinds of whiskey.

A hilarious mix of memoir and mayhem, Offerman made me laugh and slap him imaginary high-fives throughout the book. A gentleman (with roguish tendencies) Offerman muses on hard work, the importance of play and everything in between.

Before I read this book I thought Nick Offerman was a pretty funny and talented actor- after reading it I think the guy is just a jerk who married a much more talented woman to get a career going in Hollywood.

In between the sounds of Nick Offerman’s giggles, Paddle Your Own Canoe offers up a Wendell Berry-esque manifesto of living with character and integrity (even if it’s just being true to your inner smart aleck.) Nick refined the art of the deadpan in the laboratory of Illinois’ 1980s rural Catholic churches, and here his unique voice and chewy prose chronicle hilarious hijinks involving bratwurst haikus, kabuki theater, woodworking, love, and, of course, the legend of Tick-Tock & Flip-Flop, lords of the 80′s Midwestern Breakdance. Surprisingly political and philosophical, Nick Offerman mixes it up with plenty of Ron Swanson-esque deadpan humor. And giggles. Don’t forget the giggles.
