If you like Tina Fey, Chelsea Handler, Zoey Deschanel, and other funny women of today, you will just love Mindy Kaling.
She is so funny and so honest. I can relate to her because of her honesty. I tell people way too much about my personal life. For example, just yesterday I walked into a room of friends and announced that I had just eaten four Johan's donuts. That's something Mindy would admit to doing only she would make it sound a lot funnier and a lot less pathetic.
Seriously though, it's her honesty and her humor that totally sucked me in. I really believe that if we could all be just a little more honest about our silly mistakes and embarrassing moments, everyone would be more confident and emotionally healthy! I am pretty sure that everyone at one point in their life has had an embarrassing binge on Halloween candy, girl scout cookies, or caramel corn. If not, then I suggest you do it ASAP because it's really fun...and then you feel pretty sick...but the 20 minutes when it's happening are magical.
Mindy's book is laugh out loud funny. Girls from generations X and Y will relate best to Mindy's hilarious opinions, advice, and life experiences. This isn't epic literature, but it's a great lighthearted read. Just like Tina Fey's Bossypants, it's even better on audio.
