Rich, information dense, experiential, practical, challenging

Karen Brody lays out a powerful, flexible structure of masculinity from the vantage of interacting with the feminine. Her examples are compelling and instructive. This structure presents one solution to the riddle of apparent contradiction in what the modern woman wants from the men in her world. It certainly gives me much to consider and an invigorated permission to experiment both with myself and the women with whom I engage.

I wish I could have read this book 20 years ago

Karen Brody offers a nuanced, in-depth journey through seven masculine archetypes, how to animate these archetypes in yourself as a man, and how they can arouse and inspire women. I use the term animate, because these are not a series of techniques but ways of being that can be guide your own journey in masculinity. The book also provides great insight into the inner world of women, and offers a framework for understanding even when a woman can't articulate why she feels or responds the way she does. While listening, I recalled countless times in my life when I didn't know how to respond to a particular situation simply because I made unconscious assumptions that women operate like men.

While not explicitly discussed, this entire work inspired quite a lot of thought into what messages I’ve received about masculinity in our culture, in my family, and from the women in my life. I came to realize that I felt that the world was constantly telling me that masculinity was something to be feared as dangerous, or to be repressed as uncivilized, or to be eradicated as incompatible with gender equality and a love for and belief in women.

Karen clearly cares about men, and her acceptance of men bestows a relaxed sense that you will be okay as a man, even as she challenges you to show up for women in ways you may never have imagined. This book encourages men to leave chasing an outcome from a woman behind and truly embrace their role as leaders; to move past the idea that men and women are the same and embrace our complementary nature; to unapologetically and lovingly give our gift of masculinity; and to powerfully and truthfully ask for the things we want from women.

True insight on how to get the key to the kingdom.

A true woman's insight on how to get the key to the kingdom. The one really worth seeking and conquering.

Brings you in, then disappoints.

At first I was really into this and then got some (what I thought at the time) were decent insights. Then I got to a bit about where she asserts that to a woman, every word he says is to her a promise, and must be upheld, but a woman lives in a series of “emotional truths” that change and fluctuate from moment to moment, and can therefore not be held accountable to having to do what they say and say what they mean. Nope! I reject this wholeheartedly and it’s made me realize this book is pretty much an attempt to get men to become serene about expecting fairness in their relationships. Buyer beware. NEXT!

Perfect for beta male indoctrination

What disappointed you about Open Her: Activate 7 Masculine Powers to Arouse Your Woman's Love & Desire?

The book is whimsical but not realistic to any female who is under 45 years old and raised with today's selfie, Instagram narcissism and feminist persona. I only wish women would be receptive to these loving tactics. Having been married and dated hundreds of women, the books methods are unworkable... unless you're a beta male sycophant.

What was most disappointing about Karen A. Brody’s story?

The story reads that males are responsible for all of the females emotions, reactions and fears. It's not about mutual giving.

Any additional comments?

Narrator was good, content was spiritual and conceptual, albeit, a bit in fantasy land. Fewer and fewer women are satisfied by a male 'giving their all' to them. Doesn't matter if you're rich or poor, they get bored. Thank you social media for creating monsters (guys, too) who require tremendous and never ending attention from others. Today's ladies are, sadly, not the same as they were even 10 years ago and this book is a relic.

Drives a conclusion the author doesn't intend....

I wanted to like this book. I thought I'd gain some insights into how women view men, and their various actions. And to give some credit, I did learn a few. The Director-archetype was compelling to me, and I've actually used that knowledge in my relationship to drive decisions without collaboration to a much greater extent. It always goes over better than an endless cycle of "I don't know, where do YOU want to have dinner?". So that's good.

However as the author continues to drone on and on about all of the various ways that men need to meet women's complex and every changing needs, as a regular guy I began to feel like, "you know what? I love women like most guys, but they really aren't worth all THAT." My interest in listening began to drop off rapidly at that point, although I soldiered on another hour or so and listened to more detailed, tenuous requirements of handling women's needs. Yawn.

I give the woman credit for taking a stab at defining what she wants. But it comes off the same way it would if a man just sat down and cranked out chapter after chapter of how women can best serve his needs. While perhaps its a cathartic experience for the author, the rest of us are left rolling our eyes.
