A very funny book. Writen as-if from the viewpoint of Barney Stinson. Barney if the character played by Neil-Patrick Harris on the comedy 'How I Met Your Mother'. The book is writtten to be read very easily. It's broken up into article points, approximately one-per-page. So it's easy to pick up and read from anywhere in the book.

Barney is characterized as being a very overt Womanizer. No woman could resist him, and he would do almost anything to get the woman (for their one-night stand). But his character believed whole-heartedly in the adage 'Bros before Hoes'. And that he would do anything/everything in his power the help his 'Bros' score, and that they should do the same for him.

In the TV-series he makes reference to 'The Bro Code' many times. Claiming it as an actual legitimate printed text, not just an imaginary code of honor amongst fellow males. This book is that printed text.

Many humorous refences/instructions on how to look out for your bros. Whether it be hiding him from an ex-girlfriend, to lying for him to help him score the uber-babe.

He does site that some 'chicks' (women) are better bros in some cases. Like they know what a prospective one-night stand may wanna hear about you, to seal the deal and what-not.

To wrap-it-up. If you are a fan of the hit Television show, a fan of good-natured humor, or just wanna have a good coffe table book you know your friends won't be able to resist picking-up and thumbing thru. I recommend this book. I've had many a friend just casually pick it up and after a quick glance start reading passages aloud.

I couldn't help but laugh the entire time I read the book. It's pretty funny how many trigger memories from my life with my best friends.

While the book is funny, it insults the continuity of the show. I watched the episode from season 3 ("The Goat") that introduced the Bro Code. In that show, certain articles of the Bro Code and the article numbers mentioned do not correspond to the book except for Article I and Article 34. The others have different article numbers in the book. Matt Kuhn, the write of the book, is a complete idiot.

    Funny stuff

    I bought this as a gift for my sister, but being a fan of the show ("How I Met Your Mother"), I ended up reading it before I gave it to her. This is classic Barney, so if you're a big fan of the show and you find that whole totally mistaken male mentality thing amusing, this is a great book. It's definately good for light reading and entertainment. Guys, I wouldn't count on using any of this advice in real life!

    Humorous and Mildly Educational

    The Bro Code by Barney Stinson is a humorous book that details about 150 rules that a brother or the colloquial ¿bro¿ should live by. Some of the rules include guidelines that dictates etiquette and morality of a bro. Although the book presents itself at first as a series of purely sexist one liners, there are occasional valuable rules that dictate rules that provide important structural guidelines to being a good friend and a bro. Don't pass this book up too quickly thinking that its content is purely a mixture of the moral code of a college frat boy.

    This book contains several sections detailing the etiquettes of apportion, loyalty, and cooperation among one's bros. The book also contains explanations available to codes that detail exceptions and in-depth limits of the codes. However, the book does include several humorous codes that supply the reader with a mix of contemplation, reverence, and levity. But even so, this book does provide a guideline that can be applied to more than the specified bro. Some of these rules are available to be taken and used in multiple aspects of life other than the bro so I do recommend others to try read this book. It's wide selection of emotions and topics enable a lot of people to be able to connect with its writing. A warning about the book though, read it with a grain of salt and take its sarcastic humor lightly. This book has a lot of male centered humor but it also does have some credibility in its writing.

    HIMYM BRO CODE, As seen on TV

    Great book, whether you are reading it just for a laugh or if u want to see what the true meaning of being a bro is. Many good pointers surprisingly in there to help you be a better friend/person. I'm a big fan of the show and as soon as i found out they published the BRO CODE i had to go buy it.

    Neil Patrick Harris!

    My boyfriend and I were in Barnes&Noble doing our usual lazy Sunday afternoon search for fun, new books and we came across this gem. Although it's marketed for the male population (as stated in the second article), we read it together and laughed the whole way through. Very entertaining and great marketing with NPH's picture on the front. :)

    The book was really hilarious for both guys and girls. I bought this for my boyfriend and he loved it almost as much as my friends and I did!
