Review quote

As a result, Harris s"Autobiography"ends up being clever, heartfelt, smutty, hilarious, cheesier than a 10-ton block of gouda and maybe even a sort of profound meta-statement on the uselessness of any attempt at writing memoir at all. "Paste "
A legen wait for it dary work of infotainment. "Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel"
Very funny and very honest "San Francisco Chronicle"
A fun little labyrinth of a journey even with all its tricks and jokes, there is actual substance to be found here. one of the most flat-out entertaining reads of 2014.
Neil Patrick Harris "Choose Your Own Autobiography"is one of the best celeb memoirs I ve ever read. "The Phoenix News"
The interesting thing about Harris s autobiography, especially when compared to other celebrities who release memoirs at a time when their careers are still successful, is that he is actually quite candid about his past sex, partying, or otherwise.
["Choose Your Own Autobiography"] is silly, irreverent, and tells you a lot about Harris highly creative mind"
