Gumption
Gumption Relighting the Torch of Freedom With America's Gutsiest Troublemakers By Offerman, Nick Downloadable Audiobook - 2015

Nick Offerman's second book is a delightful collection of musings and anecdotes that he's researched, and collected over his life. From his respect for a selection of our Founding Fathers, to luminaries like Carol Burnett, Yoko Ono, Willie Nelson, and Wendell Berry, Offerman weaves a wonderful and accessible book.

Nick waxes from poetic, to political seamlessly, with enough dry humor to keep you entertained. He also allows for a fair deal of heart to enter the stories he tells. From walking through Central Park and making it come alive as a dynamic and historic place to visiting Yoko Ono's flat, and realizing that Yoko had never left the tragic site of John's brutal murder. Explaining each time how it effected him to be in such powerful places.

I'd highly recommend this book to anyone, and in particular, the audio-book as Nick's narration is fantastic, and in such an intimate book hearing the author's voice is a welcome treat.
