As if Neil Patrick Harris needed any more geek cred, the man just announced that his upcoming autobiography is going to be published in the form of a choose your own adventure book. During the 80’s Choose your own adventures introduced children to the world of non-linear story telling through adventures like The race Across the Sahara and the Cave of Time.
With his career as a child actor in Doogie Howser, a Magician, Broadway star, and TV star combined with a life that has been filled with great achievements and struggles, this could be the most engaging autobigraphy to hit the market in a while.
