The content of this book is fairly unoriginal - concerns about weight, stories about not fitting in as a child, some stories about writing for The Office and Saturday Night Live. In terms of content and performance, Tine Fey's Bossypants is much more interesting. Yet Mindy is funny and she does a nice job of reading the book. If you think she is funny, you will probably enjoy listening to this book, but won't be blown away by it.
I listened to "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?" right before "Bossypants" and honestly they seemed like the same book… the same book that wasn't even really great the first time.
For a really good autobiography I recommend "Stories I Only Tell My Friends"
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!
I enjoyed this book. It was light and fun! I think it fits well with the other female comedians who have written books too.
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.
I have not finished it but probably will finish at another time. Another book has grabbed my interested at the moment though so I'd like to listen to that first.
Maybe it's made more for teenage girls like she mentions in the book but I did not find this book funny! Oh well I'll stick to watching her as an actress that I do love but not a writer. Sorry Mindy
