Overall, the author wrote mediocre book about her life. It was fun and upbeat. But I didn't quite connect with it....
It's probably because it's aimed for a younger crowd. If you have a daughter around 16-21 I would recommend this book.
I love Mindy Kaling. She's fabulous, so this is no dig on her whatsoever. I think the mistake is that I read (listened to) Tina Fey's and Amy Poehler's books before this one. "Yes Please" was especially fantastic but both were wonderful. This book was good. I laughed at quite a few lines and appreciated her storytelling. For me it wasn't as compelling as the other two, though. I think I wanted more heart, more real Mindy.
this is a charming and pleasant listen but I found myself craving something...more from what she had to say. loved hearing her story and how she got where she is, but she left out juicy details and golden anecdotal opportunities. in conclusion, it made me smile a lot but I never really laughed out loud
Mindy Kaling is unique but very relatable. Her stories are riddled with cute and thoughtful humor as well as great advice. If you're interested in Mindy and her pursuits, you'll either get a firsthand take on some things you already know, or learn something about her that makes her even more lovable.
I really enjoyed this book. It was easy to listen to and funny. Thanks Mindy!
A book about economy might be useful for your life and could make you look smart at work, but you don't want to listen to that on a lazy afternoon. I watch the Mindy Project and her easy, funny character made me buy this book. It's not a book for aha moments, nor that it will make you stay up all night to finish, but it's the right amount of entertainment. I like honest and use conversational style in her book.
