From the hit TV show How I Met Your Mother
comes Barney Stinson’s words of wit, wisdom, and awesomeness, The Bro Code—
the New York Times
bestseller (really!) with more than a million copies in print all around the world.
Everyone’s life is governed by an internal code of conduct. Some call it morality. Others call it religion. But Bros in the know call this Holy Grail The Bro Code.
The Bro Code is a living document, much like the Constitution. Except instead of outlining a government, or the Bill of Rights, or anything even resembling laws, The Bro Code provides men with all the rules they need to know in order to become a “bro” and behave properly among other bros. Historically a spoken tradition passed from one generation to the next and dating back to the American Revolution, the official code of conduct for Bros appears here in its published form for the first time ever. By upholding the tenets of this sacred and legendary document, any dude can learn to achieve Bro-dom.
Containing approximately 150 “unspoken” rules, this code of conduct for bros can range from the simple (bros before hos) to the complex (the hot-to-crazy ratio, complete with bar graphs and charts). With helpful sidebros The Bro Code will help any ordinary guy become the best bro he can be. Let ultimate bro and co-author Barney Stinson and his book, The Bro Code share their wisdom, lest you be caught making eye contact in a devil’s three-way (two dudes, duh).
Do your buddies know “The Code”? in a hilarious guide inspired by a memorable episode of the hit CBSv television show How I Met Your Mother, ultimate bro Barney Stinson outlines how a bro should behave in any situation.
The Bro Code is a living document, like the Constitution. Although it dates back to the American Revolution, The Bro Code has never been published before. Few know of its existence, and the code has only been verbally communicated between those “in the bro.” Until now. Regardless of veracity, a Bro never admits familiarity with a Broadway show or musical. When attending a strip club, a Bro never wears jeans. These are only two of the truths in an epic code of conduct for dudes, essential for ensuring a man’s success in daily life and garnering him respect from his buddies. If a dude breaks the code, he risks losing face, friends, and most importantly— women. For the first time ever, The Bro Code spells out 150 rules men need to know in order to behave properly among other bros. This code of conduct for bros can range from the simple (bros before hos) to the complex (the hot-to-crazy ratio, complete with bar graphs and charts). With helpful sidebros and illustrations, The Bro Code will help any ordinary guy become the best bro he can be.
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.
