With the exception of the chapter about a speech at Harvard Law, I loved this book.

I think Mindy Kaling is very funny and she seems like a totally normal person. Her writing style is very conversational and I feel like I just had lunch with her where she told me all these funny and smart things. She talks about relationships, confidence, weight & body image, careers, and lots of her advice is great.

I want her to write a romance novel, I want her to give advice to young women everywhere, and I totally want to hang out with her.

A good collection of essays from "my friend Mindy" listening to her reading it further enhanced the "friend" vibe ( )

I did not like this book. I stopped reading it because I had no interest in Mindy Kaling or her TV show. ( )

Brilliant. I loved it even more than Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? I read the majority of this on my commute, and I laughed out loud on the bus like a creep and got embarrassed. I am consistently drawn to get-shit-done, don't-give-a-fuck-what-you-think, successful, creative, and hilarious women, and Mindy Kaling has all of these qualities. A — right in my wheelhouse. ( )

Once and a while I like picking up a celebrity biography/autobiography. I enjoyed The Office and Mindy Kaling's roles and writing on it, so I figured this would be a cool book to jump into. After reading her book, I definitely want to watch The Mindy Project. Mindy seems like a fun and wickedly smart woman who has made a name for herself in Hollywood. She's an excellent writer and super funny. Her book is an easy read that feels like you're sitting down to coffee with her. She tells her story, and you can smile and nod along as you learn all about the hijinks she gets into.

There's a lot of funny and a lot of heart in this book. It's not my favourite book in the world, but if you are a fan than this is definitely one you should pick up. You'll get to peek inside Mindy's brain and world for about 300 pages.

Three out of five stars. ( )
