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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Brilliant

WOW.. this book has blown me away. I wasn’t expecting to listen to live coaching sessions. I just downloaded it because I’d listened to the 5 second rule and loved it and liked Mel. I’m so glad I did though. I’ll be eternally grateful to the beautiful people that were brave enough to take part and lay bare their thoughts, feelings, humanity and challenges. I have so much respect for them all.

For people trying to make positive changes in their lives this book will give you helpful and practical ideas and tons of inspiration to get going.

I highly recommend this audio book x

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.

Very less useful content

Book can't keep user engaged throughout and most of time is spent on useless discussions with Mel's clients. Author should have stated user problems in her own words properly instead of adding this live crap book and wasting time. Only useful part is the conclusion that is made at the end of live discussions. All the live conversation with participants is just useless as well as boring.

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

Released on the back of the success of 5 seconds, this book does not stand on its own merits. Chock full of padding and self congratulations with not much new to say. Skip it.

Impactful and entertaining

As always, Mel Robbins is compelling with her no nonsense approach that lifts you up and shakes some sense into you. Revealing enlightened approach/perspective to issues and giving the listener the power to kick ass. Kick Ass is lively and the interview subjects real people with real problems. As you listen you are cheering for them to get the breakthrough they need with Mel’s ability to get to the heart of it. The show never dragged but also didn’t feel like it was skipping forward, great editing. Loved to hear more...keep it coming. Well done to all that had a hand in producing this.

This audio was so powerful to sit and listen to. Mel has a great way of clearly getting to the root of the issues and articulating what the person can do to improve their own situation. Her honest and direct approach for connecting with others made this great to listen to.

If you only listen to one book, make it this one

Different format to what I expected (thought it was a book) but wow did I love it! Real people with real stories. There is something for every human to take away from listening to this. If this were a podcast I would subscribe and listen every day. Worst bit is that it ever ends - I want to listen to more of Mel!
