Gumption: Relighting the Torch of Freedom With America's Gutsiest Troublemakers
Nick Offerman's book of essays about 21 personal heroes is funny, thought-provoking, and mostly interesting
Arts Story  June 11, 2015, by Melanie Haupt
"...But Offerman often strains to be politically correct while also grandstanding on the myriad ways we've murdered our planet; he's clearly sincere, but he's also not quite as evolved as he would like us to think he is. It may be difficult to relate to some of the ideas he's espousing when: a) he uses phrases like "the woods were infested with Native Americans," and b) he writes about sitting down to lunch at Chez Panisse with Michael Pollan..."

"...What's behind the recent decline in Amer­i­cans' consumption of meat and other animal products? Perhaps it's people like Eric Schlosser (Fast Food Nation), Morgan Spur­lock (Super Size Me), and Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma, In Defense of Food) who, through their investigations into the landscape of fast food, meat production, and government subsidies of commodity crops have given consumers pause when making their meal plans. There is certainly the concern for animal rights..."
