I have already recommended to people I know. If you even remotely like her character on Mindy or her sense of humor, then you will love the book. I liked how some of the voices were actually other people, especially the obituary.
Mindy? If you don't like mindy then you won't like the book. But it is informative of how a comedy writer gets her career.
The small Michael Schur spot gave me the highest intensity laughs, due to the short format of an obit, but obviously more laughter throughout the book with Mindy's voice.
I loved this book, and have recommended it to all my friends!
Mindy of course!
I loved hearing their voices, it is always best when an author reads their own work.
This was such a great book, I have and will recommend it to all my friends.
The content of this memoir - stories from Mindy's past as well as her general musings on life - is light, but often laugh out loud funny. If you like Mindy Kaling's style of comedy you'll have a good laugh. I was already a fan, but like her even more from listening to the book. As expected, she performed the book really well.
OK book...not my favorite story teller in the world but entertaining enough. I was an easy way to pass a few hours of time.
I found Midy to be relatable. I also really loved getting to know Mindy and how different she really is from Kelly (the character she portrays in the Office). I like that she is very smart, but also very aware of herself too.
I really enjoyed Her Rules for being Best Friends. So many of them were so true and soooo relateable.
I really liked Mindy talking about her experience on the Office
A fun read, especially for young women. What I loved is that she talks about embracing your nerd and doing what you love.
From the moment I saw Mindy on The Office - I realized this girl had something special. This book explains why. I highly recommend this quietly entertaining book. I finished it in one day while I was sifting through paper work and so many times caught myself laughing out loud like a crazy person.
I was so disapointed at how jaded Mindy is, stemming all the way back to her childhood. Her insights and perspectives are quite juvenile, and all have been heard before. She seems to speak as an authority on topics she is very inexperienced in. I found it boring, frustrating and quite annoying at time. Sorry Mindy, I love you on TV.
No, just from this author.
Recent college grad enjoying the chance to listen to and read what she wants for the first time!
Definitely! I listened to this on a long RV trip through Arizona and even though I was slightly grumpy and very tired, I was never bored, and I never stopped laughing! Kaling is an engaging writer and a cheerful and hilarious narrator. It felt like I was having a long, boozy, delightful brunch with her. I would definitely recommend this for anyone looking for something smart but light for those days when you just need a friend.
