  • Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man’s Principles for Delicious Living, By Nick Offerman

    The advice we, here at The Roosevelts, would like to think we instill in you everyday, only better… and told by Nick Offerman, the über manly Parks and Rec carpenter turned actor. He, as himself not as Ron Swanson (they’re basically the same person), gives sage advice on how to grow a mustache, woo a lady and cook a delicious steak. A mix of amusing anecdotes, opinionated lessons and rants, sprinkled with offbeat gaiety. His writing is bland and matter of fact with a hint of “I’m just f*cking with you”. We can only hope our sons will  one day grace and provide the internet with a website on high brow man-humor, news and gear called The Offermans or www.FFRMNS.china. Available October 2013. Nothing like preordering a book 5 months in advance. $20
