Something I had never thought about before reading The Book of Bro: The Party Guide was to post house rules in a clearly visible location so that all attendees would have a set of expectations for behavior. That is just one of many pieces of advice for hosting a party suggested by author James "Baby Jesus" Spencer. Not being a "bro," I haven't had to do that at my parties, but I did like one of his suggested rules about not allowing any smoking inside. Humor is rampant in this book, such as the rule about keeping the party people out of the front yard because "Nothing kills a buzz like police lights." Other party hosting suggestions in this succinct book include hiding your valuables and breakables and moving furniture to create open spaces. Spencer further suggests rules for party attendees, such as bringing your own alcohol and respecting the host.

Something very entertaining in The Book of Bro: The Party Guide was the inclusion of several party games that the host of a "bro" party could have people participate in -- all drinking games, of course. Also included in this short party guide by James Spencer were many drink recipes so that the host could mix up a variety of cocktails for the guests. Spencer was thoughtful enough to include whiskey-based, scotch-based, rum-based, tequila-based, vodka-based and other assorted concoctions. This book ends with the author's "Baby Jesus" wisdom on things to avoid doing at a party, like not putting your drunk friend in the bath tub.
