The star ofParks and Recreationand author of theNew York TimesbestsellerPaddle Your Own Canoereturns with a second book that humorously highlights twenty-one figures from our nation's history, from her inception to present day-Nick's personal pantheon of "great Americans."To millions of people, Nick Offerman is America. Both Nick and his character, Ron Swanson, are known for their humor and patriotism in equal measure.



  • I'm a big fan of his way of speaking and his storytelling skills. The way he speaks matches perfectly with his cleverness. This audiobook is a must-listen for any fan of Offerman, regardless of whether you've been following him for a long time or just recently discovered him.
  • This book is a hit among individuals with conservative views. The narratives are skillfully presented, and the outlook is invigorating. I'm uncertain why those on the right end of the political spectrum are expressing discontent. It could be accurate that Republicans lack a sense of humor and struggle to identify satire. Maybe they should stick to authors who align with conservative values, such as Stephen Colbert. ;)
  • I gotta say, this book was a total game-changer for me. It really had a profound impact on my life, leading me to discover a whole treasure trove of other resources that satisfy my hunger for genuine truths and core values. Oh, and by the way, Nick, if you happen to come across this review, hit me up sometime!
  • I'm a huge fan of Nick Offerman and his body of work. And now, even more so. I'm not a big reader, as I tend to doze off after just a page or two of any book, so audiobooks are definitely my preferred option. I must say, the author's voice is quite pleasant. Nick, if things don't work out with Mr. Tweedy, I'd be more than happy to take his place. Haha. However, I should mention that I'm a heterosexual and happily married to an amazing woman whom I sometimes still can't believe I landed. While I can't say I agree with all of his political views, I do respect and understand his opinions. And from what I've gathered, I think the author would appreciate that. I really enjoyed the historical tidbits and I'm planning to do some further research on the lives of the people on his list. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to grasp the significance of advancing the unity of humanity. From this book, along with his previous one, I've grown in maturity and have truly gained a better understanding of myself, or at least a better way to articulate my true feelings about religion and the world. I give this book a perfect 5 out of 5 rating in all aspects. Nick is an exceptional storyteller and I sincerely hope he'll grace us with another book soon.
  • I really wanted to enjoy this book, but I was disappointed when it started to focus too much on left-wing ideologies like intersectionalism. However, I still appreciated Offerman's impressive performance as a narrator. Unfortunately, by the time I reached chapter 4, the book seemed to be ticking off every liberal ideal on a checklist. It was at that point I admit, I stopped reading. Particularly, when Offerman expressed that he found the 9/11 attacks justifiable due to US foreign policy and referred to the right to bear arms as "clinging to our guns," suggesting that oppressed individuals could reasonably rise up to kill their oppressors. If the book had toned down its indoctrination by 50%, I could have enjoyed its preachiness, despite it conflicting with my political beliefs. Unfortunately, as it is, the book felt more like a series of insults rather than a thought-provoking read.
  • I really liked the way he used words in this book. It was so interesting that I had to search up the meanings of many of the adjectives he used. However, I couldn't really get past the fact that we have different perspectives and he seems to have a liberal bias on almost every subject. If you share his opinion about the world, then you'll love this book. It just wasn't my cup of tea.
  • Nicks' initial book brought literacy into my life in an enjoyable way, but this book has significantly broadened my appreciation for words. It has also shed light on the remarkable ambitions of individuals who I had never considered intriguing or admirable before, illuminating them in a completely different way.
  • I had a good time with this audiobook and it really got me pondering. It had a bit less humor compared to the first book, but it still delivered a fantastic listening experience overall.
