Awful diary garbage presented as research

This book is this woman's personal views. she once states that women hate to be challenged by men, then tells a story of how this dynamic played out with her male editor. YOU HIRED THE GUY TO CHALLENGE YOU! He's an editor. I didn't hear a single citation of research. This is like Karen Brody's diary...

So everything is up to the male?

This book reads as if the author has issues with her ex.
As if she’s hammering men for her breakup.
I find it emasculating and often confusing.

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.

Fantastic book

As a woman reader, I felt like she reached in my soul and saw what I have been thinking and feeling. I couldn't believe how well she captures what women really want from their man. Insightful, engaging, deep and applicable. Recommend this highly to any man who wishes for a guidebook to being a desirable confidant and capable male.
{captures a lot of David Deida's more complex teachings and makes the concepts much simpler to grasp}.

Interesting read.

It was good to get a female view of the way women see and react to masculine behavior. I thought the stories made more of an impact than hearing that sweet voice say how it is. Even though I felt it was a little slow at times, I still picked up quite a bit more perspective than I thought. There are actionable suggestions that are worth trying and believe this book is worth the time to listen to.

Hard to finish..

At one point, near the beginning of the book, the author says, that if a man really wants a woman to express sexual energy in the same manor as a man, then he probably doesn't want a woman.. she then spends the rest of the book telling us that to become more attractive to our women we should adopt more feminine qualities.. you should be a better listener and be able to express verbally and poetically every single feeling we have.. we should cater to her every wim while never questioning a woman because that turns her off. .. the question I pose is do you really want a man.. this is the same modern sexist bullshit you hear from the bald headed lesbian dance theory graduate on every college campus across the country.. hard to finish..

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!

A good book to enforce the feminine imperative.

This book is written very poetically and beautiful, but with one sentence you can resume the book "guys are made to be sacrificed(for the country, for the society, for his family, and for his wife) and women only will love you if they can manipulate the guy to get sacrificed"

Well written but pedastaizes women

This is a really well written, put together book. But it struck me about an hour in, that this is all about bowing down and worshipping women. It strikes me as being a dancing entertaining monkey servant machine who caters to her every need.

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.

This book brought us closer together.

I’m glad my partner found this book for us to read. We read it together discussing every chapter.
Great bonding activitie for the weekend!
This book brought us closer together.

I would put this book in the same range as “5 love languages” or “men are from Mars and women are from Venus” The same helpful.

This book can help girls understand what they find attractive in different guys and why they are drawn to one type or another.

Would be useful for guys who are interested to know what is going on in girl’s brain, how to attract more attention and what qualities in a men are attractive for girls.

This book is definitely NOT for Alpha males, because Alpha males already think they are “the best” and there is nothing else they can learn (wrong). So, if you think you are an Alpha male - don’t read this book! It would be too much for you to hear advises from a love therapist that you need to love your partner in order to get love in return.

I personally think this book is a MUST read for every men who is interested in improving relationship with existing or future partner.

In the middle of the book you might find that author put too much drama and personal details in the book but If you would continue listening, there are more gems 💎 in the second part of the book.

Have a good listen!

Small amount of learnings on top of similar texts

Was suggested to read a book on masculinity written by a female author by a friend so gave this one a go. Started quite reasonable but a lot of (especially younger) men will find the personal scenarios Karen talks through very foreign. It comes later in the book that at least some of the men talked about in this book are in their late thirties. Similar to other reviews I found these examples irritating and reading like a soft-core erotic novel. I didn't particularly enjoy the last half of the book but it has left me with some great ideas.

Important, yet dangerous book for modern day men

This is a very rare book that celebrates masculinity in an honest and hopeful way, while making no excuses for men.

In the light of the #metoo movement, we men, we conscious men, need to acknowledge the harm that we as a whole, and as an individual, are capable of. Women, not all of them, but very many of them are slowly but surely losing hope in us. And truth is, I can't argue with them. If I were in their shoes, I might feel the same way too.

In our current state where harmful masculinity is talked about and highlighted in abundance, what example do we men have to follow to lead us in the right direction? In "Open Her" Karen shares her deep love and her hope for our masculinity.

This book has given me permission to appreciate my own masculinity again. I believe it has the potential to help renew our sense of direction as men in our modern world, to help us develop the loving masculinity that our world sorely lacks.

With all of this said I do have to say this book also feels somewhat dangerous. For 2 reasons.
1. The language in this book feels a little outdated, and I believe could be updated with some modern day sensibility. The first 3 or so chapters of this book has a very slight air of..... "men should be men, and men should not be vulnerable in the same way that is allowed for women". At least to me that's how it reads. However I am very glad that I pushed pass some of the more outdated parts, as the rest of this book offers beautiful teaching for men.
2. For a man who still wants to make excuses for himself and uses self development as just another tool to get sex from women, this book may only further inflate their ego and "good guy" persona.

For these 2 reasons, I would only recommend this book for those with a well developed and well challenged sense of self awareness, and an internal compass that aligns with genuine love for others.

Step up and be my best

That’s what this book is inviting me to do. To be my best and activate all these different parts of myself to better my relationship with women. It’s the inside guide for all that women want in a men... with real life examples and practical exercises to make it happen. Very similar to the work of David Deida. Recommend 100%.

So bad its insulting

I went back to it try to read again a few times. Honestly, it really is awful. What I read was nothing more than superficial ideas dressed up as generalized truth. And the attempt at a female "voice of God" does not lend the words any weight.

Brilliant book!!

Thus book illuminated many areas in which I can bring more strength, depth, openness, vibrancy and authenticity in the realm of romantic love, intimacy and sexuality. It's very well structured, clear and uplifting. Highly recommended!!
