This was, to put it simply, fun. While I'm sure the book's novelty choose your own adventure element was great, I think NPH's narration just gave it the extra boost of enjoyment. It's full of wit and snark, as to be expected. It's also thoughtful and just a bit sappy. (I should check our download to see if we have access to any of the PDFs with David's recipes - I definitely want to try those!)

Okay, the audio version is worth it for the Totally Straight Guy magazine interview alone. I laughed for about 5 minutes at that.

NPH narrates this himself, and of course it's delightful. There are tons of behind-the-scenes anecdotes from his years in Hollywood and on Broadway, and a star-studded list of secondary characters provides support. Overall, though, NPH comes across as, very simply, human (albeit a very talented human).

Highly recommended. Well worth a listen!

If you need something good to listen to on the commute to work, a fun listen while tanning poolside, or are just interested in the life of NPH then give this audio version a go. Or the actual physical or ebook. It's your choice. Believe me, you will laugh out loud and be entertained.

On the one hand, pretty much what you'd expect from NPH: charming, simultaneously self-serving and self-deprecating, and full of gossipy details about the interweaving worlds of theatre, television, movies, and magic! On the other hand, he really does bare all re: his journey of self-acceptance to living as an openly gay man and father of twins, a part of the story that is given equal weight to all the show biz stuff. Lastly, having the book adapted and read by the author/subject really helps, though all the "guest" voices (Seth McFarlane, Penn Gillette, Starah Silverman, etc.) are done by a dry British cap, which is kind of off-putting.
