Paddle Your Own Canoe

Nick Offerman, perhaps better known as Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation, is the ultimate man's man. When he's not playing the manliest man on television, he's running his own wood shop — so when he offers advice on how to be a man, we're inclined to listen. Paddle Your Own Canoe: One Man's Principles for Delicious Living ($20) is a book of just such advice, from growing a mustache, and seducing a woman, to grilling meat, and appreciating nature. We're not sure reading it will make us half the man he is, but it's worth a try.
