wasnt a fan, but it might work for you.

Robbins seemed to swear to be trendy....im not against swearing, but it just seemed out of place. I learned a few things, but honestly wished I spent the time on other books.

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.

Just what I needed to hear!

I saw a little bit of myself in each story. Now the work is to figure out what I really need to work on and make a plan for that. And maybe I already know what that work looks like I just need to own it.

Eye opening and inspirational!

Loved it! Planned to listen a little each day but couldn't stop! Finished it in 2 sittings. I have already been recommending it to others and had my mom listen in on one session.

It's nice to meet you Mel

So glad I chose this title to listen to. I had never heard of Mel or nearly anyone that is a motivator. I had some audible credits to use and KAWMR had really good ratings. wasn't 100% sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised and found myself MAKING time to hear more (like sitting in my driveway once I got home to finish a chapter). The only thing that seemed odd was the quickness of the breakthroughs for the people she would talk to. I felt like it was staged. Then I thought, maybe for the sake of time... Then I used one of her techniques.... I ASSUMED there was no intent to mislead me.... I can't wait for my wife to listen...

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.

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.

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.

Horrified!!

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.

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.
