Grilling juicy red meat, growing the perfect moustache and wooing a beautiful woman, is there anyone better to deliver the tutelage on all of the above, and more, than Nick Offerman, AKA Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation? Paddle Your Own Canoe ($15) is a unique combination of his trademark comedy and is very real woodworking expertise, he does run his own woodshop after all. Paddle Your Own Canoe is full of tales from the childhood Offerman spent in Minooka, Illionois your stereotypical American small town. We his journey to Chicago we he began as an actor/carpenter the hilarious seduction of his wife. A modern classic that will have you laughing out loud.
