Since the publication of her much-loved first book, Mindy Kaling's life has changed significantly. Back then, she played Kelly Kapoor, a side character on the popular series, The Office. Now Mindy is the creator, producer, writer, and star of her own TV show, The Mindy Project. Mindy turns the anxieties, the glamour, the heartache, and the celebrations of her second coming of age into a laugh-out-loud funny collection of essays that anyone who's ever been at a turning point in their life or career can relate to. And those who've never been at a turning point can skip to the parts where she talks about meeting Bono, encountering Elmo, what kind of snacks they have at a Vogue photo shoot, and what you should carry in your purse when you go to the State Dinner honoring the president of France.

I love Mindy Kaling, and I was looking forward to reading this book after reading her first book about a year ago. It's a very fun read, and I read it within 2-3 days. Wonderful book, and wonderful person. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun, warm, and hilarious read!

Such a refreshing read. Honest, candid, hilarious - Mindy Kaling executes her second book perfectly. That chapter by Greg Daniels and that convo between Mindy and her mom were both gold. Can’t say enough good things about this book!

She is very real and honest. If you are a fan of The Mindy Project, you will love this book even more. The way she writes makes me smile so much. Love it and will recommend this to anyone who needs a good but not-so-heavy read.

Kaling's candid and funny second book. If you liked her first ("Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?"), you'll love this one.

Mindy Kaling is who I want to be when I grow up. She is honest all around with herself and her readers and on top of that she is just plain funny. Her sequel is just as good as, if not better than, her first book, "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?" Kaling offers insight and humor on various life topics, some that are applicable to the everyday gal and others that are just fun to read about. I highly recommend this title for anyone who has seen her work and wondered about the girl who plays Kelly Kapoor on The Office.

Mindy had me entranced from start to finish. Love her commentary and insight on life. This is a perfect quick read that I would recommend to anyway in need of a some good comedy and advice.

This was the first book by Kaling that I read, and it made me want to go back and read the others! Witty, honest, and gives a great insight into her world. As a fan of hers in the first place, this solidified my impression of her already.

This wasn't as entertaining as the first one of hers I read. It felt like she could have combines the two books into one because it seemed like the same old same old stuff. Eh.
