Kevin R. (kcrouth) - , reviewed Gumption: Relighting the Torch of Freedom with America's Gutsiest Troublemakers on
Ok, i'm now officially a fan of Mr. Nick Offerman. "Paddle Your Own Canoe" got my attention, but "Gumption" sealed the deal. Gumption is a thoughtful, intelligent, funny, inspirational, and very grounded collection of interviews and essays about 21 of Mr. Offerman's heros, both historic and contemporary. Among these persons, i found a few of my own heroes, but also adopted some of his, meeting them for the first time through these essays. Nick (may i call you by your first name?) has a grounded, well informed, intelligent, and compassionate view on life, politics, work, and our world in general. It makes my heart and mind warm and happy to read his thoughtfully reasoned comments on these his heroes, and on their affect on him and our world, and how he builds upon their work and art. I'm looking forward to reading more from Mr. Offerman, as well as reading some of these newfound heroes found in this book. Gumption is a great uplifting and heartwarming read, especially in the context of the insanity we see in the news and on the internet daily. Two thumbs up!!!
