A $26 Podcast

Good content and entertaining, however it's mostly unscripted dialog.

this is not an audiobook. it's a podcast, with each "chapter" unrelated to the last , they each even have the same 2 minute intro! This was clearly built as a series and is now being sold as a book when it simply isn't.

A Surprise Of A Good Listen...!

After The 5 Second Rule, I guess I didn't have really high expectations here. After all, 5 Second got pretty repetitive, and Mel didn't seem to feel bad that most of that book got to be same-old/same-old. So I suppose I expected to hear people who had the same problem at the root, or had differing problems, but they wound up being solved by the same tool. But I'm a person who thrives on self-development books, so I gave this one a try.
Boy! Every single person who Mel talks to here has a different sort of problem: Business problems, relationship problems, self-acceptance problems, and the list goes on. Some have had decent childhoods (though it was interesting that the majority of iconic issues occurred when people were in 4th grade/9-years old) with remarkably wounding episodes; some have had real horror shows in their backgrounds.
But, and this I liked, Robbins has a way of cutting to the quick with each of them: You are NOT your wound, so stop acting like it. And the people wound up seeing their own parts in their problems, their own failings. Some discovered they were manipulative, some wanted all the attention, one was just plain mean. But that was gotten to quickly and the tools to change were handed over immediately, so it's not like they were beaten over the head with their flaws. Mel is not a mean person; she's just honest and yikes is she quick on the draw.
I didn't give this five-stars because for a credit, I guess I kinda expected more clients. And as far as the Performance rating goes: What can I say? A couple of them speak like they're guest-stars, hoping to become famous. And a couple of them have laughs that about drove me up the wall (okay, so I'll shut up now about the petty things, shall I?).
The best part was that, at the end of each session, Robbins wraps it all up with takeaways that both you and I are privy to. We can all take something from each and every session (and don't get all offended if you hear profanity. There's a lot of pretty common language used).
So basically, this is a binge listen (and I'm not quoting the title or Audible will hold my review or remove it).
Think about yourself, think about your own issues, and find yourself in each and every one of these people who are struggling.
You ready to end a chapter and start a whole new one?

I related to every session somehow! Unbelievable

even when a session would start and I thought, "this does not Interests me" I would continue to listen and evitably I found something that really impacted me in every session. Everyone should listen to this book.

Holy Cow!

This isn't exactly an audio*book*, its a collection of Mel's sessions with various folks working through their issues. It is both HILARIOUS and seriously enlightening. I'm only on the second chapter/session and already so much of what Mel discusses has really resonated with me. This is actually the first "book" that falls under the "self help" or "development" categories I've ever read. I usually see these books and think, "I don't need this, I'm fine." or "I already know what I need to work on with myself" so I don't buy them or read them. Let me tell you, I am SO GLAD I bought this. This is something that will stay in my Audible rotation and read more than once.

The Most REAL Advice on the Internet Right Now

This isn’t just 8 individual stories or 8 individual coaching sessions. This is about the listener seeing a little bit of themselves in each of these 8 stories. When Mel was talking to the guest, she was talking to me. This is truly the most epiphany-inducing content I’ve digested since...ever. You will not be the same after you listen to this show.

Download this book! It will change your life!

I met Mel after her presentation at a Simmon's Leadership conference several years ago and I can tell you that she is the real deal, blazingly brilliant. She has something for YOU in this Audible original which is an integration of the wisdom of neuroscience (5 Second Rule) and practical KICK ASS advice about how to OWN YOUR STORY!

I loved the live coaching sessions. They were very transparent, full of raw genuine emotion and life changing insight. I am so excited about this Audible original format and getting this wisdom to the masses and how Mel continues to make life better for each and every person who is willing to own their life story.

MUST LISTEN OVER AND OVER!

I've listened to this twice now. There's so much to learn that you have to in order to pick up on everything. Although you won't relate to every story 100%, you will learn something you can apply to your own life in 100% of the stories.

Amazeballs

Per usual Mel was straightforward and I love that! Her subjects were all actually quite entertaining. Some were even hysterically funny. Somehow I related to almost all of them and definitely learned something from each session. I'm a self help junkie and this is high on my list of actually helpful and not the usual BS. It was so good I'll probably listen to it a second time. So many nuggets. And the cursing..... f****** fabulous.

Very VERY over-hyped

I tried really hard to enjoy/learn something from from this, made it almost half way through even, but in the end a complete waste of time listening. most of the audiobook was spend on hyping up the author, each chapter started with the EXACT SAME INTRO "you are listening to Kick Ass with Mel Robbins..." along with recordings of people begging to be picked etc. Gets a bit tirsome after the first two chapters, I don't know why you need to remind someone what audiobook they are listening too every half hour! I thought this was a self-help book but turns out it was an overpriced, over-hyped podcast that had very little advice over than "you can do it".

Annoying people and BS emotional crap

I had high hopes for this book, other reviews are correct with the podcast feel. And yes after every chapter you get the same intro, which can get annoying. Some of the people Mel interviews are annoying with their dribble of playing the victim, crying and emotional BS etc...Don’t get me wrong Mel is good at her job. The 5 second rule was a good book. But this live coaching book is dreadful. Could of been done on her YouTube channel for free?
Mel only interviewed Americans which pissed me off!
where are all the other people that live outside the U.S that you keep hearing about during the intros???
When I got to the 4th client and the woman said she was from Cali with that annoying lift at the end of Cali fucking did it for me.
Refund to me is coming thanks audible.

I was very disappointed. Rude aggressive and constantly swearing person pretending to be a psychologist. Angry loud and sickening. By far not a self help of motivational book. Don’t waste your money.big disappointment for me.

Oh my Goood!

I did not like this book. Too much shouting , too much swearing - the f... word in every sentence, too much emotions and too much OMG!
Some stories are touching though and it s nice to know that people were helped. However, personally I did not get from the book anything useful.

Lots of gratuitous swearing and whining

I couldn't get past the first chapter. Maybe it improved, but I just found it to be too full of pointless bad language to be enjoyable, and I didn't find the story compelling. I'm glad people were helped, but I didn't find it an enjoyable or useful listen.

This might suit American listeners. Not for me!

Oh dear, my first disappointing Audible book. Was really hoping for more.
It just feels like a series of podcasts, lazily glued together back to back.
I'm afraid I had to abandon it 3/4 of the way through the book. I really couldn't take any more of hearing the intro repeated yet again, then the out-takes before the main item.
Got 4 hours in and only had one "ok, that's interesting" moment.
This might suit an American listener with a very short attention span, bit I'm afraid it's not for me.

Money grab

What a pity 5 second rule was good this is basically a money grab by Mel and Audible - should be a podcast but that would be free...

Ignore and wait for Mel to trot out the soundbites on her social media channels (plus they are free)

Just a glorified podcast...

An easy enough listen, and a well produced podcast, but if you are expecting another 5 second rule type "book", this is definitely not it. It will be a trade in for sure for me on audible I'm afraid...

Warning- Highly Addictive

I only wish I had discovered Mel Robbins years ago. But..I am truly grateful that I have now found her. Kick Ass with Mel Robbins will take you on a journey of self discovery. It will also give you major wake up calls in all areas of your life. Even if you think you are doing life ok - you'll soon discover those aha and wow moments that will truly open your eyes. Every single episode you will be able to take something from, even if in the beginning you think this isn't me I can't relate- you so will ! I cried , then cried again when the tears changed to tears of laughter .Not only life changing (the cheapest and best therapy youll ever receive )but the best entertainment . The only downside ? I didn't want it to end. Please give us another season Mel as I'm addicted

Disappointing editor’s choice

This was as unbearable as a reality show, an absolute ego trip of the author. Unashamedly she continuously inserts the allegedly real phone calls she received from people wanting an appointment with her. Her so called professional interviews with “patients “ are not only full of commonplaces but profusely seasoned with swearing.
Given that there’s a wide variety of hidden gems in the universe of literature, it was quite appalling to have this cheap shallow bestseller as the editor’ s choice.

Concerning

I listened to the first interview and it is unethical how Mel kept calling the first woman a baby so harshly. And agreeing she was pathetic. These are risky things to say to people with mental health problems, or those listening with mental health problems. That this is free right now is concerning.

Little insight

Robbins is consistently shallow, simplistic and self-congratulatory. Very little to recommend or take away here.
