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.

  • The Merciless Book of Metal Lists

    Nothing seems to get music fans riled up like a good list, and no group of music fans likes to get people riled up quite like metalheads, so The Merciless Book of Metal Lists ($15) seems only natural. This 200+ page book is filled with random lists covering such topics as sell-out bands, bad metal fashion, album covers with goats, as well as a forward from Slayer's Kerry King, an afterword from Philip Anselmo, and contributions from various metal personalities like Anthrax's Scott Ian, Exodus' Gary Holt, Soulfly's Max Cavalera, and Eddie Trunk. A great Father's Day gift, provided your Dad has a favorite Motörhead t-shirt.

  • Bank Heist Kickstarter

    Pretty-boy Floyd, Baby Face Nelson, Bonnie and Clyde, and John Dillinger all had something in common — they were each cat hoarders they each went to jail for bank robbery. Maybe if they had Kickstarter funding, they wouldn't have ended up behind bars. The Bank Heist Kickstarter ($150) is the first of its kind to attempt to solve that problem. Well, okay, it's not a real bank heist, it's an elaborate art project and exhibition based on years of research into what it would take to successfully rob five Los Angeles banks. The exhibition will include short films, models, photographs and other media to help tell the story.
