This is ridiculously short. In fact, I read it in about 5-10 minutes in the books department while I was waiting for my parents to finish up with their shopping, but it was probably one of the best times I've spent while waiting for someone, ever. It's definitely an amusing read, especially for 'How I Met Your Mother', Neil Patrick Harris, and Barney Stinson fans.

So why the 3 star rating? Well, like I said, it's so short! I know that the whole point of this book is that it's supposed to be smal

Cette fois, notre cher Barney nous guide sur le parfait Bro en société. On y apprends avec classe et élégance (toujours !), à bien se comporter parmi la gente féminine et parmi les siens. Là sur le coup, je ne saurais quoi dire sur le sujet. J’avoue que je n’ai pas eu l’occasion mettre sur pied l’un de conseil… sauf pour le ciné… ou le centre commercial… ou dans les toilettes… bref, si vous vous voulez survivre et être unique, suivez ses quelques principes du Bro :

The following review has been copied from

Bro On The Go, written by Barney Stinson (also known as Matt Kuhn) and published by Fireside Books, is a “how-to" format instant collection about how a “bro," or a single, American male, should compose himself and behave in various average scenarios. Sequel to The Bro Code, Bro On The Go is a supplement to the television series, How I Met Your Mother.

What was once simply my guilty pleasure became a phenomenon in the last few

Less impressive than the original The Bro Code but a nice complementary piece to go along with it. Some are repeats from the main book (as we are told) but there are some fresh fun gems in here as well. You'll manage to finish this in about 10 minutes, depending on how deeply you reflect on the advice given to you by the legendary Barney Stinson!

Some examples:

For a Bro on a date:

Ce livre est une version light de Bro Code avec quelque nouvelles ajout.

Autrement dit, "on a penser a des nouvelles jokes, mais on avait pas dequoi faire un nouveau livre complet, et une version édité du bro code serait con car on vient de sortir le livre".

Un peu comme un greatest hit avec des tounes de plus, ce livre reste quand même amusant à cause des même raison que le bro code.

Pour les collectionneurs, les complétionniste ou les gens qui voudraient une version allégée du Bro Code.

A bad attempt to cash in on the barney character. No more than 40 pages and no real laughs or value from this book...

To save time, I'm writing one review for The Bro Code, Bro on the Go, and The Playbook. These books were a lot of fun for any fan of the TV show How I Met Your Mother. One of my most and least favorite things about the show has been the complex changes made in the character of Barney Stinson. However, these books are clearly meant to have been written by the Barney you'll remember from when the show began, so if you are looking for some good humor from that more one dimensional character, you'll ...more

For those of you who have already read The Bro Code, this was a quick way to try and sell a similar book to the same people. Is it funny? Sure, mostly. But it does repeat itself more than once. Is it all new? No. Sadly out of the 80 or so jokes in this book My guess is 10 - 15 of them are from The Bro Code. So, you kind of get jipped there.

And this book is REALLY short! Almost feel dumb calling it a book. But if you have say 10 minutes, and I am not exaggerating there, go ahead and give it a sh

En la línea de The Bro Code, aunque repitiendo demasiado lo que ya decía éste.

Si The Bro Code básicamente consiste en el compendio de reglas que debe cumplir un buen 'Bro', aquí la idea es reflejar el comportamiento adecuado en situaciones cotidianas, en una cita, en el trabajo, en la playa, en el cine...

Se lee en menos de media hora, por lo que puedes conformarte con dedicarle un rato en tu librería favorita.

Do I get to count this as book 5 of 2011? Bro on the Go is apparently a companion to Barney's The Bro Code. Bro on the Go gives some simple brotastic advice on certain situations along with Barney's bro insight.

Perhaps if I had read The Bro Code, I could enjoy this book more, but there wasn't enough in this one. Some of Barney's insights also sounded really sarcastic, but one isn't sure.

Won a copy of this via Twitter (thanks, @CBSTweet). The really hilarious thing is that it literally is a book small enough to stash in your glove compartment for emergencies. It took maybe five minutes to flip through it, and while some of it was in the original Bro Code, there were a few tidbits that weren't. Either way, well worth having. Love.

This book breathes Barney Stinson and reading it twice, once was last year, never gets old. :D I am hoping to get a copy of my own of his other books such as The Playbook and The Bro Code.

I wanted so bad to give 5 stars, but it took me 10 minutes to read it and I was like "Seriously?!". Anyway I think that it deserves 4 stars so I don't feel guilty at all :)

The perfect book for the Bro on the Go, even if said Bro is female. You never know when you may be called on to play wingman to one of your Bros. So study up and be prepared!

Finally a pocketable reference version of the sacred test of "The Bro Code".

A must read addition to those who are a fan of How I Meet Your Mother!

I feel its like a shorter version of The Bro Code, still an interesting read. Not as particularly awesome as "The Bro Code" though.
