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.

    " some funny parts, but you need to know the show. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jorge | 1/28/2014

    " I'm being generous with 3 stars, it's a 6 out of 10. Now don't get me wrong it IS very funny and very entertaining, and essential in every bro's repertoire. But, I must say, many articles need some work, and there are some things that are just wrong. Like getting Barney in a 1-10 rating scale in one of the articles, even as 10, that is unacceptable, the rating scale should have been 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 Barney. There's also the exclusion of many bro's and the lack of internationality of the tome. It just doesn't get as awesome as Barney would have it. In the absence of a better bro code, this is the one. The good part is, it's got an amendment section at the end where you can write your own amendment, alas, there's space for only one. "

    " I didn't really need to read this because I already know the bro code, but I just needed to be able to state the article numbers in disputes. Example: "No, it's not cool Mike. According to article 93: Bros don't speak french to one other." "

About the Author
Author Barney Stinson

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 dudes got probs. When Barneys 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.
