I just finished listening to this book on the train. I was laughed out loud and even had little wet laughter tears. Mindy had me looking like an insane person on public transportation but I couldn't help it, it was too funny!
Purchase this. Listen to this (maybe not in public if you're concerned about looking weird by laughing loudly to yourself). Mindy is funny, smart, narrates like a champion, and breathes fresh air into the hilarity of being a woman in this day and age.
This book is like hanging out with Mindy for a few hours! I love being taken on a ride in her stream of thought! She's hilarious in all the best ways!
I had lots of laughs and smiles while listening to this book. I especially liked her thoughts on what she thinks are the funniest movie or TV comedy scenes of all times. It brought those funny moments back up for me and I had some good laughs!
I would definitely listen to it again, infact i already have. Kaling has written (hopefully her and not some ghost writer) her story beautifully with a theme of honesty that makes you want to hear more of what she has to say.
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.
