Mindy Kaling has lived many lives: the obedient child of immigrant professionals, a timid chubster afraid of her own bike, a Ben Affleck–impersonating Off-Broadway performer and playwright, and, finally, a comedy writer and actress prone to starting fights with her friends and coworkers with the sentence “Can I just say one last thing about this, and then I swear I’ll shut up about it?”
Perhaps you want to know what Mindy thinks makes a great best friend (someone who will fill your prescription in the middle of the night), or what makes a great guy (one who is aware of all elderly people in any room at any time and acts accordingly), or what is the perfect amount of fame (so famous you can never get convicted of murder in a court of law), or how to maintain a trim figure (you will not find that information in these pages). If so, you’ve come to the right book, mostly!
In Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?, Mindy invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood, with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls. Mindy Kaling really is just a Girl Next Door—not so much literally anywhere in the continental United States, but definitely if you live in India or Sri Lanka.

Mindy Kalibg is a role model for many! Her fashion sense, her ability as a writer and her confidence and determination to strive for her dreams are all qualities that everyone should follow and epitomize.
Listened to this during a 10 hour drive and was completely entertained! She is captivatingly self deprecating and totally confident at the same time. I love her sense of humor and her writing style effortlessly flows from anecdote to anecdote. I just want to be friends with her and go shopping and eat donuts and quote Will Ferrell movies. Is that too much to ask?!
Hilarious. Interesting. Captivating.
How Mindy came to be so successful and what it took to get there. Featuring hilarious stories along the way.
Well written, funny, everything you need to just relax and have a laugh at the beach (which may include strangers looking at you oddly)
So. Many. Laughs.
Can't wait to listen to her newest!
"I love this book"
This is one of my favorite books, it's a go to book for a good mood, mindy kaling is amazing. Get the book!!
"Wonderful easy listen- like listening to a friend"
Hearing about Mindy's childhood and her early career.
I haven't listened to any of her other performances, but I have to say that I love her voice. It's very friendly, happy and so distinctive that I can still hear her narration, even after finishing the book.
