As with the last few, this is is his best book yet. I say that with the full and heartening knowledge that I am a dipsh*t - and whilst trying to router my dovetails. Thanks, Nick.
Love the man’s voice and persona. But, I could do without the political opprobriums and ravings and about an hour in started to realize that he probably could have made his point in 3 minutes or less if he really wanted to. Stopped listening at the halfway mark. His main point is that, while ‘pristine’ nature is good and nice, we really need to re-establish a more integrated relationship with nature as a matter of daily life if we really want to have a healthier society and planet (which I agree with). In plain English. Without having to tell you about the vittles (which, maybe, is either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your appetite for other people’s vittles).
Very entertaining. Author gives opinions on the importance of responsible use of land inspired by a trip to a national park an English farm, and a cross-country camping trip. Plenty of classic Offerman humor and philosophy.
