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 the room and announced to my boyfriend and his best friend 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.

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.
