    Así que Barney regresa en compañía de Matt Kuhn con nuevo material para arrancarnos muchas sonrisas, sonoras carcajadas, y esta vez, de verdad convencernos —o al menos a mí— de seguir tan siquiera una de sus jugadas para "ligar". Esta es la guía maestra para el ligue, un compendio de jugadas, con porcentajes y todo aquello que se pueda requerir para triunfar en lo que respecta a la atracción de los distintos tipos de mujeres.Entonces, ¿qué les puedo decir que no les haya dicho antes sobre Barney? Es genial, realmente genial, y aunque este es un libro que tampoco es profundo, resulta más entretenido de imaginar que el anterior, pues, nuestro querido personaje nos confía una de sus mayores posesiones: su mente maestra, y en ella, su habilidad para entablar relaciones —de al menos una noche— con mujeres.Jugadas favoritas:“THE SNASA”, “THE BLIND DATE”, “THE DON’T DRINK THAT”, “THE HOT DUDE”, “THE SCAPED CONVICT”, “THE AUTHOR”, “THE I’M JOINING THE MARINES”, “THE LITTLE ORPHAN BARNEY”, “THE GRANDPA WONKA”, “THE HE’S NOT COMING”, “THE MY PENNIS GRANTS WISHES", “THE JORGE POSADA”, “THE ANNYVERSARY OF MY WIFE’S DEATH”, “THE MANNEQUIN”, “THE LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT”, “THE LEO”, “THE ABRACADABRA”, “THE BRIAN’S FRIEND”, “THE BEFUDDLED PUPPY OWNER”, “THE PORTRAIT”, “THE TED MOSBY”, “THE JIM NACHO”, “THE CONFUSED INHERITOR”, “THE OTHER JONAS”, “THE CHICK”, “THE PINOCCHIO PUPPY”, “THE PRINCE AKEEM”, “THE MOVIEGOER”, “THE LORENZO VON MATTERHORN”, “THE COOL PRIEST”, “THE AREA 69”, “THE GHOST”, “THE RORSCHACH”, “THE BALLET DEFECTOR”, “THE LOTTERY”, “THE MISSING CAT”, “THE TIME TRAVELER”, “THE VAMPIRE”, “THE BARNEY IDENTITY”, “THE YOUNG MAN AND THE SEA”, “THE PROJECT X”, “THE LIFEGUARD”, “THE FALL IN LOVE”, “THE I CAN LAND THIS PLANE”, “THE BOY IN THE BUBBLE”, “THE MRS. STINSFIRE”, “THE BILLIONAIRE”, “THE TROJAN LESBIAN”, “THE GRIEVING CHICKS”, “THE E PLURIBUS UNUM”, “THE MR. PRESIDENT”, “THE KIDNEY SCHEME”, “THE I CAN GUESS YOUR WEIGHT”, “THE HEIMLICH MANEUVER”… y aquella de la que no podemos hablar.

    I first came upon The Playbook, by Barney Stinson in the humor section of my local book store, which upon reflection was obviously a titanic mistake. This is not a funny book. No, not at all. The Playbook is pure enlightenment. It's wisdom is Ghandi-esque. It's what everyman has ever looked for. It's a proven step by step guide on how to score with chicks...I mean women. It's results are nothing short of astounding.Don't believe me?Here is a picture of a typical girl I dated before reading The Playbook. We will call her Phillis:Though the author is sexually potent (considered a veritable dynamo by some) Phillis is not actually pregnant in this picture. And no, I won't take another paternity test, Phil. My limit is four a year.Besides, you've been "pregnant" for thirteen months. The charade is over, give it up.And here is the woman I've been seeing after reading The Playbook:yowzaCan you see the difference? It's slight but it's there.Now some of you may be thinking that I pulled this picture at random from but I do not lie. Here is proof of carnal knowledge of said woman: *Actual children that I helped create.If The Playbook can work for me, then it can work for you too.*Unauthorized picture of the was a bad hair day.

    LEGEN – wait for it – DARY!Yep! Another awesome book brought to us by Barney Stinson and Matt Kuhn. Loved it!Since bros have some problems hooking up with chicks, our greatest hero, Barney Stinson, made a prodigious gift to all bros around and gave them the grand and magical Playbook. Now each us will be able to go out, hit some pubs and trick mindless females into engaging in an insignificant (at least for one side of the party) act of coitus. Hip-hip-hurrah!Barney is one of the funniest characters out there. I kept on imagining him doing all these plays while reading the book and I have to tell you that it increased the fun. I also got to the point where I asked myself: did any guy actually try to pick up a chick using one of these plays? More importantly, did it work? If you have a good sense of humor (I’m not talking about guys, they surely will love this book, I’m referring to the “chicks” – heh!) then try this. I mean I love all of Barney’s books and I don’t get offended by them. Be cool! Be awesome! Try it and become the perfect wingwoman! Help a bro in need! Make the world a better place!I saw there’s another book out by Barney, “Bro On The Go” but I’m not sure if I’ll buy it or not. Seems a little too short for its price. Anyways, we will see.Read this review on ZombieHazard.

    [image error]I can't explain how much I enjoyed this book. I probably shouldn't have, as a woman. But it was just so funny! I could just hear Barney Stinson reading the book out loud to me. And the sad thing was, I remembered quite a few of these plays from the televsion show! If you're a fan of the show, this is a must-read. If you're not, then you shoudl read it anyway, because it's hilarious!

    (From my blog: Quill Café)In accordance with the FTC, I would like to disclose that I purchased this book. The opinions expressed are mine and no monetary compensation was offered to me by the author or publisher.Suit up. Score chicks. Be awesome.After listening to the audio book for 'The Bro Code,' I had to have more of Barney Stinson’s sexist humour and creative wit.In this volume, there are plenty of "plays" which demonstrate ways in which poor schmucks can attempt to get some.Each play includes its success rate, the kind of women it attracts, requirements to initiate the play, the preparation time and possible problems.The plays range from easy to very hard and lame to extravagant. While I can see Barney Stinson carrying out each and every one of these plays, I think that if another bloke tried out some of these cockamamie schemes, he could find himself in a serious mess. All puns in this paragraph were unintended. True story.The plays are titled things such as "The Lifeguard," "The Kidney Scheme" and even "The Doogie." Plenty of the them were very creative, although you’d have to find a really gullible chick to make them work.If men can find the time to work so hard to put together all of these plays to try and attract the attention of women, then women can just as easily listen to 'The Playbook' and put much less effort into weeding out random creeps. Backfire, Stinson.I laughed out loud at several moments in 'The Playbook.' I’m glad that I chose to listen to the book instead of read it as there is much more life to the humour when narrated.'The Playbook' by Barney Stinson with Matt Kuhn is recommended for fans of Barney Stinson and his antics. Not for children or the easily offended.

    El libro es gracioso, y tiene una sección de consejos para mujeres, pero no es nada imprescindible (tal vez el que no fuera super fan de HIMYM influyo en que no me fuera "espectacular"), pero a todas luces el personaje de Barrney se trasluce y reconoce, así que si es que siempre deseaste ser un don juan empedernido como el he aquí sus trucos. P.D. No había reparado en la utilidad del papel aluminio en las artes amorosas

    This review is going to be LEGEN- wait for - DARY. LEGENDARY! I wanted to read this book so bad while I was watching the tv show but I didn't know they created a real one. It was an amazing surpring, but I just discovered it this year. It was very fun reading it and imaginating Barney doing all this stuff. But unfortunaly I didn't see the ''Ryan Gosling'' sung because the tv show ended in 2014 and the book is from 2010. I would love to read The Playbook 2 and would love more to know that same guy tried these techniques in real life HAHA

    I don’t know. Maybe I’m just stupid or too ignorant but I don’t get the “funny aspect” of this book. I used to enjoy watching the show HIMYM (until season 5) and I just loved its humor and everything. And I chose this book because of great reviews where words like “amazing” and “hilarious” showed up. But.. I don’t know… Although it was a light read etc. I found it lame sometimes even boring. 2,5 stars for those few (maybe 10) lines that really made me laugh.

    This is a fun book and Barney is just the best. I kept laughing all trough the crazy plays and it was really enjoyable. I'm a fan of the series and when I've seen this cover I knew I just had to have it. After a massive school year I needed a break from the tension and this was just what the doctor prescribed.This book is just like its creator: awesome!!!! But there's nothing like watching Barney act the plays. I recommend this book to everyone that wants to laugh wile learn how to pick up chicks and being awesome.Now when I think that things are not so good, I just stop being sad and be awesome instead. Yeah, real story, guys. Here is the awesome video of it, is a resume of the chapters of the "PLAYBOOK":

    I want to say that this book is LEGEN-wait-for-it-DARY wasn't.The playbook is an absolutely hilarious book with all the well known plays (and some new ones) and all of them are great and would totally work on girls. Or not... Use The Playbook at your own risk.I think this book was published sometime during season 6, so, it didn't have my all time favorite play in it (view spoiler)[The Robin!!! ♥♥♥(hide spoiler)]. Maybe that's why I wasn't as wowed as I thought I would be. Nevertheless, I would definitely recommend this book to you if you love the show (HIMYM). You would still enjoy this book if you haven't watched the show, but I think fans will definitely get more enjoyment out of this book more if you've watched the show and get all the jokes.

    If you like How I Met Your Mother, you'll love this book. It contains "every scam, con, hustle, hoodwink, gambit, flimflam, strategem, and bamboozle [Barney Stinson has] ever used or ever hope[s] to use to pick up chicks and give them the business."Most of the plays in the playbook are lifted directly from the TV show, but that doesn't make them any less fun -- or funny -- to read.This is the second book by Barney Stinson (yes, the character is listed as the author) that I've read and I highly recommend it as a light, fun read.

    We can obviously conclude that The Playbook is a book used for recreation or humor. However, I don't think I would've ever read it if I weren't an avid fan of How I Met Your Mother, from which I learnt about the magnificent playbook. Even though 80% of the plays there aren't applicable in reality, I don't think that there are obstacles that might stop us from simulating one. ;P

    Being a big How I Met Your Mother fan, I have to say that I loved this book. It was hilariously funny, though I know that if a guy tried any of these plays on me... well. Let's just say the scam's aren't 100% fullproof! Still. A cute and very quick read.

    Voy a hacer un resumen del libro: jajajajá. No por nada este libro resume todo el éxito de Barney Stinson. El apartado para las mujeres me mató de risa, tiene todo el toque del personaje y es por eso que los que somos fans de HIMYM lo disfrutamos tanto.

    Only funny if you watch How I Met Your Mother, it's like listening to an extended episode all about Barney's 'plays'. I listened to it on audiobook, so I imagine it would also not be as funny reading yourself, as Barney's story-telling voice is what makes it entertaining.

    The following review has been copied from http://behnamriahi.tumblr.comThe Playbook, written by Matt Kuhn (aka, Barney Stinson) and published by Touchstone, is a 2nd person how-to parodying guides to pick-up women. Barney Stinson, a fictional character popularized by the television show, How I Met Your Mother, is at it again with another book—but this one isn’t about being the best bro you can be, like his former works, The Bro Code and Bro On The Go. This is an encyclopedia of tactics for getting laid, written by the master himself.Much like the rest of the books by “Barney Stinson,” I bought this one as a fan of the television series. But really, let’s be honest—I don’t need any help getting laid. I’m no Barney Stinson, by any stretch of the name, but I’m certainly no novice to the bedroom. In fact, several small cliques that I’ve belonged to have deemed me the “Barney” of their group, and though I’m wont to brag about that, I pale in comparison to the exaggerated prowess of the fictional character. Either way, I still dig the show and I’m excited about it’s upcoming finale, although it’s been a long time coming.Fandom aside, I was a little disappointed by this book. Yes, like the former books, it’s a supplement to the TV show, but in a strange way, this book has helped to inspire various bits on the show itself. As a promotional tool, in that case, the book serves a very fantastic purpose—furthering the continuity of its own inspiration. Very few books get to take credit for something so meta as that, but in my opinion, that’s where this book’s strong points end.Each section is broken down into a small chart detailing the necessity and effectiveness for each pick-up scheme, followed by a step-by-step explanation told in the second person detailing how to pull off that scheme. To that extent, this book abandoned the creative use of second person from it’s counter-parts that simply say, “a bro,” instead of the typical, “you,” and for that, it already becomes less relevant as a writing tool. The plays themselves, creative at first, become redundant. In fact, as you read on, you begin to feel like you’re reading the same three or four ideas rewritten over-and-over to feign originality, while only extending otherwise meaningless page counts. The plays themselves are broken up once or twice by variations on the idea, like an explanation for how chicks can land a dude, and though it captures the sexism of the character, it feels even more contrived in an utterly contrived piece. Of course, this is a satire and not meant to be taken seriously, but some of the ideas in here border on slapstick. One play suggests simply becoming the president of the United States in order to hook up with chicks. While I would normally applaud the ridiculousness of such an idea, it demeans the satiric nature of this book, as a commentary on PUA (pick-up artist) memoirs, to a run-of-the-mill joke book. It’d be like if Jonathan Swift amended A Modest Proposal to include eating yourself as a possibility to stave off world hunger. Of course, I think the presidential idea bothers me more-so because later on in the book, Barney explains that the president is chosen by a group of wealthy individuals meeting in Aruba which he fails to mention in the play itself. Despite the book acting in the intention of progressing the continuity of the television show, it lacks continuity itself. Though the book carries the same vapid, egotistical tone as its predecessors, it’s extended to new heights though less humorously than before, as the “author” spends the majority of this book stroking his own self-esteem instead of really finessing the audience into bed. Though the tactic worked in the previous books, it did so because it only rarely appeared in each piece, though in The Playbook, it’s an undercurrent for the whole book. To some extent, that actually does capture the PUA book cliche, though it becomes exhausting in this and lacks the humor it could have profoundly had because it so overshadows the purpose of the book. The medium itself allows for the author to take on a more serious and professional tone and play with it, but he doesn’t—simply following the script of what the character might say in the television show without being prompted by the idea of taking the writing of this seriously. If, for instance, in the character of Barney, the author sat down and wrote from Barney’s point-of-view with the same eager excitement he made it seem like he had on the television show, I think we’d actually have a interesting piece, filled with powerful commentary on the condition of American dating and published how-to books, but at the end of the day, this is merely a joke book meant to capitalize on the franchise alone.Though I think the use of the book and the plays themselves on the television show, both prior to and since aired, is a genius idea, the execution is disappointing.
