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.
