Présentation de l'éditeur

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!

On reconnais bien l'humour de NPH, j'avais un peu peur de ne pas décelé le vrai du faux, mais les passages inventés sont tellement loufoque qu'il n'y a aucun problème

A hilarious and irreverent NPH autobiography 14 octobre 2014
Par outwest - Publié sur
Format: CD
Only Neil Patrick Harris could pull off an autobiography using a choose-your-own adventure style!

Given the wild history about NPH's rise into the industry, starting with his role as Doogie Howser all the way to his recent smash success on Broadway, this dashing autobiography hits all the characteristics we know and love of his style: irreverent, sharp, witty, and funny as heck.

The whole book is written in the second person, just like the classic choose-your-own adventure books, and is a truly unique way to get night into the many choices NPH faced, but of course, sprinkled with his humor throughout. The books even throws in random recipes, magic tricks, songs, you know, everything that you might expect in a classic NPH production.

This irreverent book is a must for any NPH fans, as well as anyone who likes an interesting, unique, and humorous autobiography of one of the great living humorists of our times.

The 'Choose Your Own Adventure' gimmick is fun, but as with the original series 17 octobre 2014
Par Kristen E. Anderson - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The 'Choose Your Own Adventure' gimmick is fun, but as with the original series, it also wears on you after a bit if you're trying not to miss anything. You CAN just read straight though, because it's vaguely in order, but that's a little irritating at times too. And, sadly, there are relatively few anecdotes from his Doogie Howser or How I Met Your Mother days. Those parts of his life are essentially recapped in 8-10 pages each. While not a bad read, it only gives you a vague sense of what it was actually like for him.

However, it's a very good general portrait of the man himself. If it's the personal stuff you're interested in - his family, his forced coming out, various anecdotes about befriending and hanging out with other celebs - there he delivers, being open about his (not exactly rockstar-esque) experiences with sex and drugs, without ever being particularly salacious. The chapter on what it's like to hang out with Elton John is a delightful read, as are the sections about his now-husband David and their children.

One More Reason to Love Neil 16 octobre 2014
Par rockfamily - Publié sur
Format: Relié
First, I am writing this under my husband's amazon account, so pardon the over the top girl-ish giddiness. As many other fans, I have always adored Neil Patrick Harris - first in Doogie, then as Barney Stinson in HIMYM, then as Dr. Horrible which led to me discovering Neil can SING and DANCE which quickly had me devourning alll musical productiona ala Neil - Rent, Sweeney Todd, Company, the endless parade of awards show hosting followed with his amazing performances in Hedwig and finally to this little gem of a read.

As a certified bookwork myself, as soon as I heard NPH wrote an auto-biography, I downloaded the Kindle version immedietely and will probably end up buying the hard cover version as well. Why you ask?? Because it is just THAT good. Imagine what sitting down with Neil Patrick Harris for a long cup of coffee might be like and you begin to understand this book is severely underpriced.

You really do feel as if you are right there with your hero having to navigate through all the many choices he faces and deal with the incredible burden of growing up in the public eye but somehow still managing to stay down to Earth through all the fame, popularity, and pressure. You feel an insane amount of pride and joy as each page reveals to you what you already knew anyway, Neil Patrick Harris is a really nice person who constantly strives to be the ideal celebrity role -model we all believe him to be.

Harris gets personal and opens up in a multitude of ways but nothing is ever dreary or boring. Far from it. He injects his usual humor into every passage (especially at himself) so you are literally laughing and smiling non-stop. Plus admit it, how could you possibly hate a book that so cleverly triggers happy childhood memories of reading classic Choose your own Adventure books. No doubt future celebrity-turned authors will seriously consider copying his format but I doubt it would ever quite ring true the way Neil's book does here.

Personally, I read books similar to Johnny-5 from the 80"s film, "Short Circuit. "Ahhh Input.. Need more.." (For those too young to remember that awesome flick, Johnny 5 is a robot who reads at the speed of the light. ) My husband on the other hand does not. His attention span was severely shortened from his years of poring over college textbooks, so he can rarely read for pleasure without having sweat-drenched flashbacks of having to cram for exams. Despite this, I believe he could actually read this book as he can hop around from section to section , so I plan to let him read my copy... assuming I can stop trying to go back and forth with all the options and actually give it to him...

If you are considering buying this book but are holding back "for some strange reason" , you are encouraged to bit the bullet and buy the book. There are special endearing notes from longtime friends such as Nathan Fillion, and Whoopi Goldberg to tasty recipes and actual magic tricks that really work. Even if you are a bit ADD (like my husband) you can rest assured this book witll keep you engaged and entertained from start to finish.

If you get so immersed in a good book that friends have threatened to hold interventions on you or enroll you in a 12 step reading program; then consider this as falling off the wagon yet again. In fact, I was not intending to read this until after I completed a round of exams but simply could not resist the temptation and ended up pulling an all-nighter to finish reading it. (This is not out of the ordinary as I once read Catching Fire in an entire sitting of a Starbucks coffee shop inside a Barnes & Noble.)

Suffice to say, this book is perfect for anyone no matter what their reading style is.I tip my hat to the inconquerable Mr. Harris. Bravi, Bravi, Bra-visimi. (Imagine that last line being echoed eerily around the room seeming to simultaneously come from everywhere all at once...)

p.s. As an extra amount of over the top girl-ish giddiness, I searched book reviews and am happy for NPH as the response seems to be overwhelmingly favorable. Rest assured even if evil critics had harsh words my love of this book would not be swayed but I still enjoy seeing talented people such as Neil get the respect he is due..

Should You a) Purchase and Read This? Or b) Read About Someone Less Interesting Who Wrote in a Traditonal Style? Definitely A! 26 octobre 2014
Par James N Simpson - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is a great wealth of information on the life of Neil Patrick Harris that is also a very fun read. I liked the Choose Your Own Adventure books as a kid myself so loved the fact this was laid out like one. You could just read it cover to cover if you chose to and once you've followed quite a few paths and you're pretty sure you've lived all of Neil's lives. you'll start doing so again anyway just to make sure you haven't missed anything. There is even a bonus page in there that isn't linked to other pages, where if you ever run into Neil in the street and are carrying this book, there is a spot for him to scrawl a congratulatory signature.

The reading experience of this is interesting. There are fictional parts of his life where if you choose incorrectly (although it's usually pretty obvious with some options), you as Neil will die, such as drowning in quicksand, being eaten by piranhas, a betrayal with a bowling ball and other fun ways including my favourite being murdered by a super villain you unwittingly created at a child's birthday party when you did your first magic gig! At one point in the book you enter the fictionalised version of Neil Patrick Harris world, where you meet what you assume to be two gay guys named Harold and Kumar after you get kicked out of a limo for doing stuff with someone else's girlfriend. That's the sort of thing that makes this so much fun to read, you never know where Neil's mind will take you. Getting angrily awakened as a sandwich hand from dreaming you did all the awesome stuff of Neil's real life by customers in a huge line at Subway is another.

You do learn actual stuff about Neil as well such as why Patrick is used instead of just a first and last name. He recounts how he became Dr Doogie Howser and the good and bad that came with that as well as what it is like being a child on set. Other TV/Movie and theatre acting he did in between that and How I Met Your Mother, as well as how that audition went, where he just decided to have fun with the character as his body shape didn't match what Barney was supposed to be like. Barney even has a praising Neil (you) chapter, as do a lot of other celebrities. Other than the Barney chapter that was written by Matt Kuhn, the rest of the fictional stuff is also written by Neil, meaning hopefully one day we'll see some sort of fiction novel by him. There's Neil's first times with a guy and a girl, and how he came to realise that side of things as well as when he decided to make that news public, as well he dispels a rumour from his childhood acting days from the actor who played Screech in Saved By the Bell. Meeting his partner David as well as a couple of chapters where David has added his own handwritten notes to what Neil has typed. Hosting various awards shows, performing magic and other stuff are all covered.

The book has a few fun pen outline drawings in it as well as the standard biography couple of pages in the middle with photographs ranging from his childhood, as Doogie, with the cast of How I Met Your Mother and other stuff. The only drawback about the fun Choose Your Own Adventure style is that you can't just go to something you're interested in knowing about more than everything else such as say How I Met Your Mother or something. This didn't bother me as I was interested in reading everything anyway and knew I would find it all eventually, but if you weren't much of a reader this could be an issue.

I loved how Neil wasn't afraid to have fun with this, or even criticise himself and even some of the movies he starred in just to survive before HIMYM relaunched his career. You won't go wrong choosing this adventure!

Disappointing and Incredibly Annoying 30 novembre 2014
Par Mediaman - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This should be titled "How Not To Write Your Own Autobiography." It is so poorly conceived and executed that after the first couple of pages I had no interest in continuing. The gimmick of patterning it like Choose Your Own books is really, really bad--someone needs to talk NPH out of his self-conceit because after reading the book the guy is convinced that he has the magical creative solution to everything, which usually involves doing things unconventionally. Well, here he is so off base that he should be embarrassed.

But beyond that hides the fact that this book really has very little detail in it. So Harris has cleverly hidden himself in this "autobiography" that really doesn't reveal much about him. The stories are always way too short, he skips some major things he has starred in altogether, and often the reader is unsure whether something is true or not since some of the book is just plain fictional. This is all written slight-of-hand that is meant to distract the reader from the real NPH who wants to remain out of the public limelight. So the book feels like a sell-out, a way for him to make a quick buck, but not a real autobiography.

Too bad because NPH is a fascinating performer who should expose more of why he makes certain personal and professional choices. The book hints at his wild private nature but never gets into any depth, and while he does take some refreshing jabs at a few celebrities his sarcasm isn't enough to make this worth reading. A major disappointment and one of the most structurally annoying books I've ever read.
