Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

An Amazon Best Book of September 2015: In Why Not Me? Mindy Kaling has solidified her position as “most valuable friend.” Just like Mindy, these essays are exuberantly funny, deeply introspective and refreshingly thoughtful. From her relationship with BJ Novak and the guy who worked for the president, to creating her TV show and announcing the Emmy nominations, Mindy’s just-between-us-friends approach makes you love her just a little bit more after each story, and you’ll even question if Mindy is your soup snake. By all conventional measures Mindy Kaling should not be where she is, and that is the beauty of the stories she shares—“Work hard, know your shit, show your shit, and then feel entitled.” Accessible and empowering, Why Not Me? makes you want to stand up and shout, “Why not me, too?”--Deborah Bass

Review

Kaling has written a second book that s funnier, sharper and more confident than her 2011 collection of personal essays and pop culture riffs called "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns). "Even the title of that initial effort implied that Kaling was trying to find her place; the tone of this new one announces that she s found it and is more than comfortable inviting people to spend time with her there. "Washington Post"
Funny, thoughtful essays and anecdotes writtenin the star s trademark voice. But this time around, things arejust little more grown-up This is Kaling at the height of her power. "USA Today
" Mindy Kaling may be gearing up for the fourth season of her TV show, "The Mindy Project," but that didn't deter her from writing another wildly entertaining and completely relatable book Her first memoir, "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns)," spent time on several best-seller lists. "Why Not Me?" will certainly follow in its footsteps. "Associated Press"
Hilarious Kaling knows her strengths, and plays to them brilliantly Aside from that effortlessly conversational tone and her pitch-perfect humor, Kaling s biggest strength here is curatorial. She gives us the candy we came for the advice, the anecdotes, the straight talk on body image but sprinkles in something extra. "Entertainment Weekly," A-
"Why Not Me?" is all that we've come to expect from the creator and star of "The Mindy Project" refreshing, confident, genuine, and, yes, absolutely hilarious. "Refinery29"
insightful personal essays from one of Hollywood's cleverest writers Intrepid and often irreverent, Kaling humbly probes her own triumphs and defeats with laugh-out-loud results . "Kirkus Reviews"
Kaling's irreverent take on life is both uproariously funny and dead-on Advice on a variety of topics including why extensions make everyone more beautiful and how the world needs to start assuming that all young women are confident make this an empowering and entertaining read. "Publishers Weekly
