Choose Your Own Autobiography by Neil Patrick Harris

Funny man Neil Patrick Harris combines his life story with the fun of the classic choose your own adventure books. 

The book is written with a few options at the end of a chapter where you choose what happens next in Neil's life or you can read straight through. Surprisingly, if you choose to read the book straight through, it still makes sense and is still in chronological order. Now, obviously some of the chapters are completely made up for comedic purposes, but I think that adds to the fun and entertainment of the book. For instance, there are some options that end with Neil being eaten by piranha's or death by quicksand. 

In the very fashion of every other choose your own adventure books, it's written in second person. YOU are Neil Patrick Harris. 

Added to the mix are recipes, magic tricks, songs, and photos of Neil through the years. 

I did find that there were a lot of bits missing from the autobiography in relation to his life and roles such as his time on How I Met Your Mother, which was a huge part of his career, yet is only highlighted in a few pages. If you are a big fan of NPH, I think you will really appreciate the humor and silliness of the book.
