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.

Wow - talk about realization

After reading/listening to this you will have to have some sort of idea on what you are doing well and likely what you may not be. It's a book that provides some very real thinking and might make you revisit what's been your road block lately. Take a listen - It's very good.

Very powerful!

I enjoyed listening to all the different people and could really relate to alot of them. Mel has a unique way of getting to the root of the matter in a direct yet emphatetic way.
I am going to re listen and take notes the second time around.

Best DIY psycology audiobook

I have head a lot of performance and psychology books, I found this to be the most practical and useful.
The added bonus is one chapter is like 40 min long so you can take them in at your own pace. Listen to them slowly, digest them then move to the next chapter / session.

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.

Nice delivery. Yet not much content for six hours

The conversations were interesting, honest and heart felt. Yet the applicable content did not require over six hpurs of audio..

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?

This Book Kicks Ass!

enjoyed this audiobook way more than I thought I would. have only recently become aware of Mel Robbins, and get her weekly Take 5 newsletter. it doesn't disappoint, so I recommend that along with this book if you're interested in taking your life or business to the next authentic level.

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".

What a waste of time and money!

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.

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.

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.

Too much swearing and it just feel like listening to an American version of Jeremy Kyle show. Absolutely horrendous, I can’t listen any more. She won’t tell you anything you don’t know already!!

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...

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.

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.

What did I just listen to?

Fairly easy to listen but total bs. Her mentees agreeing with every random thing she threw out. Diagnosed a narcissist after 3 minutes chat.

Not a book

This isn’t a book it’s more of a conversation and not really a coaching session at all. Not really worth the disk space in my opinion.

Thought Provking

Whilst some of the individuals being coached by Mel have some serious issues to be resolved and Mel gives excellent honest advice there is also wonderful humour.
I am reminded that at a deep level we all have the same needs, to be loved and to have meaning and purpose in our lives.

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.

Little insight

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