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.

I love 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 that doesn't require a lot of mental effort

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.

Love it

What made the experience of listening to Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) the most enjoyable?

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.

I love mindy but not this book!

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

Love

Mindy Kaling is amazing, and being able to listen to this in her voice makes it even better. She is hilarious, witty, and seriously inspirational. This is such a feel good book, I honestly can't wait to read it again. Can't wait to listen to her next book!

Mindy is so easy to love

I would question your possession of a soul if you read this book and don't want to be BFFs with Mindy Kaling.

Why won't she return my calls?

Enjoyed it but expected more

I really love Mindy Kaling! I love the Mindy project and was drawn to this book because I wanted to hear more Mindy. Unfortunately I was a little disappointed with this book because I expected more from her. Don't get me wrong its a good listen and it's very easy, in fact almost too easy.
