Actor Neil Patrick Harris is letting fans choose the outcome of the story in his upcoming autobiography. The How I Met Your Mother star is poised to detail some of his most memorable moments from his rise to fame, but unlike the traditional memoir narrative, Harris is mirroring the popular Choose Your Adventure book series, which allows the reader to decide which path to take at certain junctures in the story. Harris revealed his unique tome on Tuesday (20May14), and on the website for the book, the description reads: "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 in 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 (U.S. TV series) 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." It continues, "Choose correctly and you'll find fame, fortune, and true love. Choose incorrectly and you'll find misery, heartbreak, and a guest stint on (reality TV series) Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. All this, plus magic tricks, cocktail recipes, embarrassing pictures from your time as a child actor, and even a closing song." Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography will be released on 14 October (14).
