Another incredibly witty and hilarious novel from the Barney Stinson series. I love the twisted but well meaning advice on how to take care and raise a baby Barney-style (providing a stereotypical view of someone with a very general knowledge on babies). As an added bonus, the funny anecdotes ("Goldieslut and the Three Bros") and nursery rhymes ("The Boobs on the Bus") provide extra "laugh-out-loud" moments.

A very fun and light read, this is highly recommended for those moments when you just wa

To any damn of HIMYM and is an exciting or new parent, this is a must-read.

So, you want to be parent/are going to be a parent/are a new parent? Congratulations! Your life is over. The good news is there is still hope for your offspring. Indefinite bachelor Barney Stinson gives you all the advice you’ll need to make sure that your baby grows up to be legen- wait for it…

Being a fan of Stinson's previous works - 'The Bro Code' and 'The Playbook' - it was a no-brainer that I would purchase this volume when I happened upon its existence. Sure, I am not a parent, nor do I ha

Nous y sommes! Voici le dernier tome du célèbre Bro-code, le guide aussi pourrave de la planète. Malgré cela, je l’adore !

Cette fois, nous parlons de la maternité et paternité. Oui vous avez bien lu maternité et pour cause, Barney s’adresse aux deux partis dans ce tome. Ce qui est marrant c’est qu’il vous apprends du début à la fin à concevoir, gérer et largué votre rejeton.

Dès les premières pages, il explique comment draguer au préalable (donc trouver le bon parti), et bien entendu l’histoire d

J'ai lu ce livre peu de temps après la naissance de ma fille et je dois dire qu'une partie de moi était insulté par la joke et surtout par le côté immature de Barney. Cependant, avec du recul, je dois dire que c'est la raison pourquoi ce livre est un succès. Il choque les parents et fera rire ceux qui ne le sont pas. Barney est l'antithèse du bon parent. C'est le gars que tous les papa comme moi espère jamais entendre parlé par leur fille. Un baiseur professionnel qui a peu de respect pour les f ...more

The fourth book in the Bro Code series takes a refreshing step away from picking up women. This is not to say it isn't still crude and overly sexual. It is in fact more graphic and vulgar than the other books in the series.

This one made me laugh more. A lot of the jokes are downright offensive, but very funny. It could very easily offend many parents. But, at the same time it has a lot to say that is truthful. The book has a good balance of idiotic comments that could only be made by a egotistic

This book was so funny. So offside. Probably moreso if you know the character of Barney Stinson.

Favourite parts (too many to list...):

Finding out you're pregnant is the most exciting discovery you will ever make, next to stumbling upon one of those conjoined peanut M&M's... - p. 18

Naming your child is also one of the most terrifying things you will ever do. Screw up now and your child could spend the entirety of junior high crammed inside his locker because you thought the name Gayden was,

Are you a parent or considering becoming a parent? Are you a fan of HIMYM and the often hilarious, always awesome character Barney Stinson? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then this is the book for you! The audio version is narrated by Barney himself and is an awesome narration. Way to go NPH! This book/audio made me LOL. I did get tired of it after a while, which is why I'm only giving it a 3. If you're a fan of the show, definitely check it out.

Book was totally written from what Barney would say or do. I enjoyed the images and stories, along with the advice. Had some classic tales like "Goldieslut and the three Bros". Best parody stories were "Goonight Bro" and "Alexander and the Awesome, Legendary, Epic, Very Kickass Day". My favorite nursery rhyme was "Jack and jill" :

Jack and Jill went all the way
To end their first blind date.
Jack snuck home and failed to phone
Till Jill found out she's late.

No me he podido reír más con este libro.
Ya todos (o muchos) conocemos el personaje de Barney Stinson (aunque admito no haber terminado de ver la serie) y el libro desborda Barney Stinson por los cuatro costados.
Un libro divertido sobre como "ser padres" desde un punto de vista mamarracho y cañero. Imprescindible si se es fan de lecturas ágiles y sobre todo, si se es fan de Barney Stinson

Don't get too excited friends/family. I'm probably not as awesome as the title would suggest - I just wanted to read the book. Like the other books in the Barney Stinson series, this is well written, witty, and stays very true to the character. The illustrations are few and far between, but add some great humor when used.

Malísimo libro, trata de tener el humor de Barney Stinson, pero en la medida que uno va avanzando en la lectura se vuelve aburrido... me pareció tan malo el libro que no fui capaz de terminarlo, lo leí hasta la mitad y lo dejé de lado

La estrella que le doy, es por los dibujos que tiene...están buenisimos

A humor book given to my husband, it was pretty much exactly what I expected. It has no real advice on raising babies or being pregnant, but is a fun bathroom read if you like Barney Stinson. The stars are for what it is, in that context.

This book was okay. It wasn't as funny as was expecting it to be and my expectations weren't very high after The Bro Code. Barney Stinson might be my favorite character in HIMYM, but I don't seem enjoy his books at all.

I thought this would be funnier, but quickly into it, I remembered that the Barney Stinson character is my least favorite on HIMYM. Big fans of the character will like it, though. I did have at least one lol.

"Whether or not you want to know your child's gender is a personal question with no right or wrong answer. In fact, many parents are still unsure years and years later... Just ask Mr and Mrs Bieber." xD Hilarious!

Read by Neil Patrick Harris, the comedy of HIMYM comes through with every word. Better than read it yourself, I guess (I read the original Bro Code), but it's still good fun.
Enjoyable, silly humour, nothing to write home about.
