NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Tired of memoirs that only tell you what really happened?
Sick of deeply personal accounts written in the first person? Seeking an exciting, interactive read that puts the “u” back in “aUtobiography”? Then look no further than Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography! In this revolutionary, Joycean experiment in light celebrity narrative, actor/personality/carbon-based-life-form Neil Patrick Harris lets you, the reader, live his life. You will be born to New Mexico. You will get your big break at an acting camp. You will get into a bizarre confrontation outside a nightclub with actor Scott Caan. Even better, at each critical juncture of your life you will choose how to proceed. You will decide whether to try out for Doogie Howser, M.D. You will decide whether to spend years struggling with your sexuality. You will decide what kind of caviar you want to eat on board Elton John’s yacht.
Choose correctly and you’ll find fame, fortune, and true love. Choose incorrectly and you’ll find misery, heartbreak, and a hideous death by piranhas. All this, plus magic tricks, cocktail recipes, embarrassing pictures from your time as a child actor, and even a closing song. Yes, if you buy one book this year, congratulations on being above the American average, and make that book Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography!

Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography
Fantastic - thought provoking and impossible to put down!
Fun and Energetic
Neil's approach to writing this book as if you're reading about your own life helps to understand the perspective he experienced things. In same cases it was more emotional and relatable than you would expect from someone so much larger than life like NPH is
As if I needed another reason to adore Neil Patrick Harris! Now he writes a memoir in the form of a Choose Your Own Adventure Book? NPH can basically do no wrong in my eyes at this point, but this book really and truly is a joy to read.... And I've never even seen ONE episode of How I Met Your Mother.
