After the enormous popularity of his character on the hit television show How I Met Your Mother as the Ultimate Bro, Barney Stinson brings together his set of rules for men to become ‘bros’. Written in Barney’s first person narrative, this book contains ways (articles) by which men can change themselves into Bros and can face the ultimate challenge of the society.
Supposedly considered to be the Holy Grail of the bros of the world, this is the first time that these set of rules have been documented and published. According to Barney, these rules were transferred across generations verbally and he had to go around the world to accumulate them and write them down.
The book provides an entertaining read as the author engages in the fitting Bro Codes in very natural circumstances. Questions like “Can only dudes be Bros?” or “Who is your Bro?” or “Why a bro never wears jeans to a strip club?” get answered with an apt logical explanation. Barney Stinson lets out his wisdom and sets the guidelines for the correct code of conduct for his clan. Within his articles he even uses bar-charts and graphs to make the readers understand.
Every man’s life is governed by a set of principles, a set of values that define his character. Some call it religion, some call it ethics but Barney Stinson calls it ‘The Bro Code’.
