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.

Format: Paperback
You know.... There are books that are supposed to help you learn something, then there are books that are fun. This one is pure fun!

Written with the Barney Stintson style, it lists rules for men hanging out with dudes to live by in a funny way. A typical page is one sentence long. Some pages have examples and diagrams that add to the experience.

Why buy this book?
- 1. You are a man, and don't understand the essentials of how to treat your bros
- 2. You want to laugh
- 3. You don't really want to admit that you like reading
- 4. You're a woman, and you want to rip on guys and/or understand men better

Why should you not buy this book?
- 1. You are easily offended
- 2. You are sexist
- 3. You are too old to appreciate the single guy humor
- 4. You are a speed reader - in which case you should have already read it in the store

This book isn't some quick, half-hearted cash-in for How I Met Your Mother Fans, it's basically Barney Stinson in paperback form. The Bro Code is hilarious. If you're a fan of the show you'll likely hear Neil Patrick Harris' voice in your head as you read the book cover-to-cover. With diagrams, footnotes, and over 150 "codes" written by the show's writers, this is a can't miss book.

This book embodies what it means to be a bro, how to act like a bro, and even proper punishment for violation of bro code. Besides countless laughs this book does in fact set a good standard for bro's to follow

This book is a quick but funny read. I finished it in one sitting, but I swear I as I read the book I could hear the spoken word of Barney from How I Met Your Mother. The lessons are meant as a joke, but in reality most college guys do live by these rules.

This is a must have for any fan of the show How I Met Your Mother.

The Bro Code, as an audio book, is a brilliant thing, indeed. The writing itself is clever and very HIMYM, or--to be more specific--very Barney. Not only does Matt Kuhn (er, Barney) supply readers with ample material to laugh at and enjoy, he also rewards loyal fans with references to things that have occurred throughout the series' colorful seasons. Furthermore, he had me picturing the characters in an array of hilarious new situations that could arise from the ideas presented in The Code. I read the book first and the narration by Neil Patrick Harris makes the many articles of The Code jump off the page. He manages to bring Barney's personality very convincingly to life through voice alone. I would recommend this audio book to all who are fans of the show or simply wish to have a good laugh.

I had the Kindle edition.
The tables and some other features were just scans of the book, at very low quality, so that they became unreadable.
I highly discourage buying the Kindle edition, but I would like to note that once I complained Amazon reimbursed me that same day despite having bought it a full month earlier

My 19 year old son asked for this book for Christmas, as this was the first time in his life he asked for a book as a gift, I went directly to Amazon and bought it along a couple of books for myself for free shipping. On Christmas evening he was reading this book, chuckling frequently and occasionally reading parts out loud. He posted this book on line as one of his favorite presents. I confess that before I wrapped it, I read about 30 pages. The humor is adult in content and women who lack a sense of humor could be offended; this is NOT a politically correct book, but it IS REALLY very funny. A quick and entertaining read.
