Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man's Fundamentals for Delicious Living - Nick Offerman

tl;dr - |✭✭✭✭✩ | I quite enjoyed this audiobook. There were some funny moments, but as it was listed in the humor section at my work, I did expect a bit more humor than was present in the book. Otherwise a fun story, and interesting to learn hear about his life. 

Description Nick Offerman's book is full of life stories, tidbits of wisdom,  and humorous anecdotes. 

So, I checked out this audiobook from my library after having listened to both Yes Please by Amy Poehler and Bossypants by Tina Fey, and enjoying both of those immensely. As apparently the trend goes with me, I found this audiobook enjoyable as well. 

This story basically goes through different portions of Nick Offerman's life. To his time on the farm as a kid and the lessons he learned from his family and working on a farm, to his theater experience both in high school and college, to his time in LA and working on things like Parks and Recreation. 

I've come to learn I enjoy hearing about people's lives and their stories. Since I typically spend most of my time reading scifi and fantasy books, I wasn't so sure how I'd like nonfiction. I wanted to break into the realm of nonfiction books, and I've found biography is proving to be a good bridge into that world. 

But yeah. If you like biography, like hearing stories about people's lives, this is definitely a fun one to get into. He has an interesting back story, many things I was surprised to hear, and peppers in some humors anecdotes. He also reads his own book, which in my opinion makes it that much better. Hearing his actual voice, and sometimes giggles, as he's recounting a funny part of his past makes it that much better. Also, its so adorable to actually hear him talk about his wife (as opposed to reading it from the page). 

Anyways, check it out if you enjoy those sort of stories!
