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.

Made the story more interesting.
I didn't finish it.
I know that Mindy is not Tina Fey. But Tina set the bar so high. This book was so boring that I did not even finish it. I suggest buying Bossypants or anything by David Sedaris instead.
I would highly recommend it. She's not a fully grown woman looking back on her life and career. She's a 32 year old trying to figure things out... like the rest of us. It's funny. She's a celebrity, but also very based in reality.
Her stories about being a celebrity that isn't stereotypically beautiful.
Love The Office.
Pretty well...I think its clear she doesn't narrate for a living, but what do you expect? I do really like the book, still.
She's really funny and proposes hilarious questions that I sympathized with. All in all, definitely worth it!
A very enjoyable book. I have watched Mindy for years on The Office, but had no idea she was a writer, director and now producer.
Her story is fascinating and made me laugh out loud. I'd recommend it.
Hilarious and fun book!
I love that Mindy narrated it!
When she was talking about writing for SNL.
I laughed pretty much all the way through.
If you are a fan of the show The Office, you'll love this book, it has the same sort of sensibility since Mindy is involved with both. She is a very funny lady. Mindy lets her "nerd flag fly" and shows that this is the way to having a life you enjoy - being yourself, doing what you love and not worrying about the rest (what other people think).
If you're a fan of The Office then you'll enjoy listening to Mindy's stories about the cast and the show itself.
Most people who will consider reading this book know Mindy's character, Kelly on The Office. While you can see where Kelly comes from, you will be delighted to learn what a bright, endearing, and honest actor & writer Mindy Kaling is. She is a true talent. This is laugh out loud funny, for men and women. I highly recommend it. Short and fun!
This book is so funny. Mindy is one of those girls you want to have with you on girls night. She makes you laugh so hard.
This book kind of reminds me of Tina Fey's book Bosseypants.
I liked this book and the preformance by the author. I have already recomended this book to others
