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 in 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, MD. 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 guest stint on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. 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, but make that book Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography!

Quotes & Awards

  • “There’s something about Neil Patrick Harris that strikes you. Whether he’s playing a teenage doctor on Doogie Howser, MD, a wild womanizer on How I Met Your Mother, or being his wickedly whimsical self as the Tony Award presenter, he displays a winning singularity. That uniqueness shines brightly in this fetching, sometimes far-fetched autobiography, which puts you in his shoes and challenges you to walk through his spontaneous, unconventional, and unpredictable life. Definitely worthy of the highest of fives.”

  • As a result, Harris’s Autobiography ends up being clever, heartfelt, smutty, hilarious, cheesier than a 10-ton block of gouda and maybe even a sort of profound meta-statement on the uselessness of any attempt at writing memoir at all. Paste
  • A legen — wait for it — dary work of infotainment. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
  • Very funny and very honest San Francisco Chronicle
  • A fun little labyrinth of a journey… even with all its tricks and jokes, there is actual substance to be found here.…one of the most flat-out entertaining reads of 2014. Popmatters.com
  • Neil Patrick Harris’ Choose Your Own Autobiography is one of the best celeb memoirs I’ve ever read. The Phoenix News
  • The interesting thing about Harris’s autobiography, especially when compared to other celebrities who release memoirs at a time when their careers are still successful, is that he is actually quite candid about his past—sex, partying, or otherwise. TheDailyBeast.com
  • [Choose Your Own Autobiography] is silly, irreverent, and tells you a lot about Harris’ highly creative mind Nerdist.com
  • “Entertainer Neil Patrick Harris provides a singular charm in the narration of his memoir—a partially real, partially fake life story, which imitates a children’s adventure story. The book is written entirely in the second person, a novelty that quickly grows tiresome, but the performance is quintessential Harris. He narrates in precisely the same manner that he hosted the Tony Awards. His life story is all here—from his early success on TV playing a child physician to his Broadway success—and is told with a bit too much candor at times. The narration, like the entertainer himself, is so likable that, despite some confusing story details, there’s much entertainment value. Several celebrity friends’ comments pepper the narration with a wink and a smile, all voiced by a single additional voice, which is comical in itself.”
