Neil Patrick Harris, Choose Your Own Autobiography

Crown Archetype

"Find fame, fortune, and true love," or "misery [and] heartbreak."

These are the possibilities that lie behind this whimsical book cover Neil Patrick Harris unveiled of his new memoir, Choose Your Own Autobiography, on Twitter today.

Unlike celebrity narratives that tediously detail a linear account of a star's life from birth to Hollywood success, the How I Met Your Mother actor lets you actually live his life story.

And as the cover implies, it's an adventure the reader decides.

"You will be born in New Mexico. You will get your big break at an acting camp," the book's promotional site promises. 

But that's just the beginning as more experiences await...

"You will get into a bizarre confrontation outside a nightclub with actor Scott Caan...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."

However, you must "choose correctly," when the book is released for your reading pleasure on Oct. 14, 2014, or as the book blurb warns, your page-turning could land you "a guest stint on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew."
