Obviously I was kidding in my subject line...but that's a bit how this book reads. In a heavily "male dominated" industry, Mindy expresses how she was still able to be successful just being herself. Through diets, friendships, and her career she always tried to stay true to herself. But it's not a "girl power" book either. It's very funny for male or female readers, and a great read by Mindy herself. She also has guest voices which make it even funnier. I'm a guy, and I would recommend it.
It was a funny book. But it is more of a publication of her diary. If you want to know about what goes on in her head, this book is great. She's funny in a random sort of way. :)
To be honest, she isnt what I expected. After reading Tina Feys Bossy Pants and Amy's Yes Please, I became hooked on female comedy writers stories. I like the shows shes in and or written for so i assumed I'd like Mindy... and at times I did... but for the most part her book is full of opinions that really make me feel like she is a spoiled person who thinks really highly of herself and doesnt respect the people who got her there.
Like parts where she just gets up and leaves works when she disagrees with the man who got her to where she was. With such a high and mighty attitude about it, and never really apologizes about it. Yet she bounces between, im just lazy and wanted to get by, yet im just an awesome amazing writer and person. Maybe its sarcasm or joking but her tone and the way she delivers doesnt come across that way...
Maybe she should of waited till she was older, then maybe she would have come off as more humble, wise, honest, less opinionated about boys and men, and funny... like Tina and Amy's books.
Over all this book made me dislike her...
I dont think so....
Maybe, I dont know, whens she older maybe
No, just sad. Onto Bedwetter and Girl Walks Into a Bar. You want a good comedy Tina Feys and Amy Poellers books are amazing!
