About the Author

Barney Stinson is awesome. He works for a powerful bank in New York City but somehow finds time to “suit up” and help the less fortunate, in particular his lovelorn and all together pathetic bro Ted Mosby—seriously, that dude’s got probs. When Barney’s not staging private bikini calendar shoots, test-driving tanks, or elbow-deep in another legendary activity, like riding a tiger bareback or blowing up a guitar, he can be seen on the hit CBS show How I Met Your Mother with his friends Ted, Robin, Lily, and Marshall.

INTRODUCTION
FROM THE DISINFECTED DESK OF BARNEY STINSON


Spider-Man’s uncle once said, “With great power comes great responsibility,” but what the great philosopher really meant was, “With great power comes a never-ending string of dumbass questions.” In the year since selflessly bestowing The Bro Code upon humanity I have been inundated with letters, emails, texts—even a few stalker-level break-ins—from people in every corner of the globe, but mostly France.

Everyone wants to know three things:


  1. Why haven’t you been nominated for a Nobel Prize?

  2. How can one person be so handsome, smart, popular, and handsome? (The “one person” I’m referring to is you—Barney Stinson.)

  3. The Bro Code is immensely entertaining, educational, and available via Fireside Books/Simon & Schuster, but it offers only general guidelines about how to live my life. What do I do when I’m at the office, going to the beach, or when I’m supposed to be at the office but I’m at the beach? HELP!

I answer:

  1. I couldn’t possibly nominate myself for The Bro Code—they’ve repeatedly told me it’s against the rules—but you can.1 Nominations for the Nobel Prize in Literature are due January 31 and should be addressed to:

    Nobel Committee for Literature
    Swedish Academy
    P.O. Box 2118
    SE-103 13 Stockholm
    Sweden

  2. 2. I don’t know, but if you’re a hot chick, perhaps we could discuss it at your place sometime . . . though now that I think about it, I probably can’t stay very long because I’ve got a thing later that night—but, yeah, no, let’s “talk.”

  3. Relax. Daddy’s home. The next time you’re out and about and a Bro-related concern arises, just reach down your pants and whip out this handy reference guide: Bro on the Go.

For years I’ve wanted to supplement the universal laws of the Bro Code with a portable handbook of advice and commentary but for various reasons had to scuttle each previous effort: The Guy-dance Counselor,1Touching Your Inner Bro,2 and most recently The Pocket Stinson.3 Now, with Bro on the Go, I’m finally able to present the observations, reflective wisdom, and inspirational nuggets I’ve mined through the daily grind of being awesome.

In these pages you will find official Bro Codes in bold print alongside my own unique and powerful insights. To maximize utility, I’ve organized this volume by location so that a Bro trying to choose between black or gray spandex shorts for his workout can quickly flip to “A Bro at the Gym” and know the answer is a resounding “neither.” Used this way, it is my hope that The Bro Code will calibrate your moral compass while Bro on the Go provides a map to navigate your path toward total awesomeness and maybe, just maybe, getting laid big-time.

With these tools in hand (heh), you are now armed to live the life of a Bro on the Go. So take this package of wisdom, roll it into a generous cylinder, stuff it in your front pocket, and go, Bro, go.

1 You being a member of the Swedish Academy or another academy, institution, or society similar to it in construction and purpose; a professor of literature or linguistics at a university or college; or a previous Nobel Prize Laureate in Literature.

After purchasing the Bro Code, the Bible of Bro-dom, if you will, I decided I could not be without Bro on the Go. Upon receiving my package, I tore it open and immediately read the whole thing. It's not long, no, but the wisdom contained within its meek blue cover is second only to that within the Bro Code itself.

There are a few original Bro Codes, usually one at the beginning of every chapter, but the majority of this book consists of fresh nuggets of wisdom regarding various situations a Bro may or may not find himself in, with titles such as "Bro at the Beach" or "Bro in Outer Space", and various other everyday situations.

This is a book any Bro should own. No exceptions.

Bought this as a last minute Christmas gift for my son on a friend's recommendation. It was a huge hit with everyone laughing as we read parts of the book outloud. It was a double bonus since my son's name is Joseph and his nickname is Broseph. Also purchased The Bro Code, equally as funny.

It's a relly fast read, took me about an hour to read. it's so much smaller than it looks like, and the text is really big, there are a lot of blank pages, or with few text, but the content is good.

....Dary.

If you are a fan of the show you will love this book, if not you will love this book too and want to start watching the show "How I Met Your Mother." Smart and witty.

I am a big fan of the show and one day I came across this. It was under 4 dollars so i figured what could it hurt. Open up to the first bro code and busted out laughing. It is a very short read. 125 pgs. 1 bro code/ joke per page. I keep it on the coffee table for company to get some laughs in but if you really take this with you it is bigger than your wallet. Just saying. Plus short enought to memorize the good onea

If you want to read the Bro Code go straight to the regular book. This one is more like a condensed version but really, the bro code can be read in less than 2 hours! Who needs a condensed version of that? If you don't believe me just look for "Barney reads the Bro Code" on YouTube and you'll find him reading the whole book (original, not this version) in less than 2 hours.
