Publisher's Summary

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.

Laughed so hard I cried

What did you love best about Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)?

Mindy's honesty about what everyone is thinking had me laughing so hard I couldn't stop listening.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)?

I loved the section of the book where she spoke about mentors then had her actual mentor speak.

What about Mindy Kaling and Michael Schur ’s performance did you like?

She not only read the book to me but she added such a performance that had me listening the same way I watch her shows--ready for the next scene.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud! Her honesty about dating and weight and work thrown together created laughable moments that I related to!

Terrible

I was hugely disappointed with this book. I love mindy's work, but this was excruciating to listen to. There is absolutely nothing of substance in this book and the reading is extremely tedious.

If your just finished reading Tina Fey Bossy Pants and were provided this book suggestion, you would be utterly disappointed.

An easy funny, informative listen.

Mindy talks about her memories, The Office, and her overall take on life in a humorous, down to earth, refreshing way.
