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 coauthor 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).

I was a big fan of How I Met Your Mother, until I read this book and The Playbook and realized how rapey it is. Don't waste your time.

If only every Bro would live by these rules.

Everything you've ever wanted to know about being a "bro". The legend - wait for it - dary book was out of this world awesome! I absolutely adore the TV show "How I Met Your Mother" and this book, which has been mentioned more than once was, was everything I had hoped for.

I feel as though I am now fully equipped to handle being a wing-woman and can easily spot a true bro and a faux bro.

For those of you that are fans of the show or Neil Patrick Harris I cannot state enough that you MUST read this and also get the audio book.

Nicely done. I didn't think it possible to stretch this idea into a book but they've done it.

A Bro never admits any familiarity to a Broadway musical, even though, yes it begins with the word "Bro"-Barney Stinson
