Choose Your Own Autobiography

Cover: 'Choose Your Own Autobiography'

Staff Review: "Choose Your Own Autobiography" by Neil Patrick Harris, David Javerbaum, Antony Hare


Whether your favorite Neil Patrick Harris character is Barney Stinson, Doogie Howser, or Hedwig, this book is highly recommended. NPH models his autobiography after the "Choose Your Own Adventure" children's series, where readers make a choice at the end of each chapter that will change the outcome of the story. This book is full of humor and quirky details, and is definitely a unique format choice for an autobiography. I found myself paging back and forth throughout the book as the story abruptly ended because I made the wrong "choice," but like any performance by NPH, the experience was a lot of fun.
