There's something about Melissa Ambrosini...

I got 'Mastering Your Mean Girl' and and at first, I didn't get into it because I found it to be along the lines of fluffy self help that isn't practicable and is mainly just "tell yourself you're beautiful". I've always preferred books more akin to The Subtle Art of Not giving a F*CK. However...Melissa has a way of grabbing my attention and making me feel empowered. Some of her style isn't quite mine, but I loved both Mastering Your Mean Girl' and this book. Open Wide really surprised me. it was much more than a book about romance. It's about finding love everywhere and understanding yourself and others. I found it entertaining, useful and easy to apply. I also love Melissa's Aussie accent and her enthusiasm for her content...even if she sometimes references things like 'activated nut cheese' and organic cinnamon sticks as metaphors. 😂 She's a lovely woman nevertheless!

Bit of a Let Down

I was so excited to listen to Open Wide as I absolutely loved Melissa's first book, Mastering Your Mean Girl. Unfortunately, this book totally missed the mark for me.

At some points, it was hard not to cringe while Melissa goes into depth about mundane tasks and spends 15-20 minutes talking about things such as how to send invitations to a party. It felt like I was listening to a 10-hour blog post written by someone who just took a bunch of ideas from around the web and stuck them in once place and added a bit of sparkle and personality.

I did not feel like Melissa was relatable and it was not easy to connect with her story as it was with her first book.

While there were a couple of bits of good advice that totally resonated with me, and I absolutely admire and respect Melissa, overall the bad outweighed the good I got from this book.

So much value

I got so much value from listening to this book. I crushed it in 2 days and had lots of ’AH HA’ moments, and even revisited ch 13 on values and qualities coz that was one of the exercises I wanted to put in the work on. I really like how she talked about not having expectations, too, so everyone including ourselves can show up as their full self and we can be present. I also appreciated that although there were so many opportunities to pause and do the work in the book (pull out your journal), I didnt feel obligated to do it all, just the ones I felt pulled to do since she encourages just doing just that. It was still enjoyable to listen to without pausing to pull out the journal whike I was painting. Very thoughtfully put together, I know it’s one I will come back to again and again. Thanks Melissa!

Beautiful book!

I enjoyed this book so much I finished it within 5 days. It normally takes me one month to complete a book. The topics covered regarding self-love and soulful sex kept me very interested and excited. I think every woman should read this book!

The written version is likely better

Though this book is geared towards a younger audience (late 20s or so), the author does have a few good points. I’ll be interested to see how she grows in her thinking in the coming decade.
However... her reading is painful. I honestly couldn’t get past the first couple of chapters because her cadence is SO exaggerated. It’s distracting and unnecessary; that hyper-feminized, sing-song style of reading is completely unnatural and unnecessary, making the points seem silly and saccharine. Honestly the producers should have corrected this before publication.

Vague content

Tonality and passion of the reader was good. The content was not great. I was extremely excited about this book. I thought the writer was going to take me on a spiritual journey, but the content was extremely vague., providing very little detail. The writing appeared to be rushed and not well thought out.

This Book is Only for a Very Specific Demographic

This book is only for women who a) lack self-confidence and b) have negative internal self-talk, and c) are still menstruating. It was very nice of the author and Audible to make this book available for free, on the other hand if I had paid for it I’d be really ticked.

nothing held back

I love the raw truth and advice in chapter 26. This is a topic most people do not cover or avoid. Melissa did a great job of sharing real life experience and examples of things that work. She challenged to you to look at yourself and understand that we're all work in process and perfect all at the same time.

review

I am a male I enjoyed listening to it. lots practical points. I wish that I could convince my wife to read it. she has the attitude that I know it all. 4 star because I don't believe in magical forces. I agree with all that she says, I don't think you need a special force or shakras to achieve it.

An enlightening listen!!

This book started off with some great useful ideas and tips on self betterment and improvement. Then section 3 happened. Wow! What amazing golden nuggets of information!! I was thoroughly impressed and cannot wait to try out some of these tips and tricks for relaxation and as Mel says "an orgasm a day keeps the divorce lawyer away!"
I highly recommend reading or listening to this artwork!
