|New from||Used from|
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

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.

It's not like Mindy wasn't funny, witty or creative it was just that I got so bored and tired of it. Halfway through the book I found myself stopping to count how many pages I had left. I did relate to a lot of what she wrote and agreed with her opinions, I started to think that was the problem.
Don't get me wrong, I love Mindy's writing on The Office and the Mindy Project and she is a great actress. I know that if I ever met her (my awkwardness aside) we would get along so well! (but don't we always think that?) but having to read it instead of listening to it really didn't sit well with me. I think I should have picked up the audio book instead (I can't believe I am saying this!)
Overall this is for anyone that wants a quick read for the beach, or who enjoys reading manuscripts.
The only downfall (and it's by no means that, I'm kind of exaggerating here) is that I read Tina Fey's and Amy Poehler's books before and (even if Mindy references them and it's clearly a different voice speaking), I simply found the previous two funnier and this one was a bit slower; still, I do not regret buying or reading it and I loved it.
I'm: WHAT IS HE READING?
So, after a few more nosy watching moments, or simply hearing his laugh, and WANTING whatever he has to wile away the long wait ever so happily--- I wander his way and snag just enough of a title to Amazon search. I put in: "Hanging Without Me" and (+)begin to type "K" and immediately this title came up in the options.
I click, I download to my Google pad...I read...
A cacophony of laughter outside Gate C41 ensued!
NOTE: I have never seen even one of the "The Office" sitcoms (I know now that this is tragic for many reasons, just am a reader versus TV woman)... but since reading this fun, fresh offering by a producing star, I also went to my Netflix and have been enjoying the show too.
So, I garrulously suggest, especially if you're a fan: it's a fun, easy read...add some chuckle to your day! Enjoy!
I love the Mindy Project so it's no surprise how geniunely funny and likeable this book is. It's the kind of stuff girlfriends sit and talk about for way too long after dinner and too many glasses of wine - their weight, their boyfriends, their parents, their childhood. It's all written so honestly that you almost feel like you're hearing it from one of your girlfriends.
The book is a series of essays that sort of chronicle Mindy's life from a chubby child to an Emmy winning writer. There were a lot of them that I loved but the funniest for me was "My Favorite Eleven Moments in Comedy". I also loved her instructions for her own funeral and the "eulogy" written for her by a friend.
I think Mindy Kaling is extremely talented as a writer, actress and comedian. I hope we see much more from her in all those arenas.
