This was certainly a fast read, and I found it engaging for the most part, but there's still a strange reticence about HOW Mindy got into the world of writing (the interesting part to me). She talks of moving to the city with friends and their brilliant Fringe show that bombed off-broadway, and negotiations to write for this show or that show...and then suddenly she's writing for The Office and even acting in it...
And I have to say, a couple of her jokes made me wince.

I feel bad for the trees that had to die to make this mundane book. There were a few chuckles, but this "book" is, thankfully, not memorable.

This book was very relatable and the dialogue flowed like an intimate chit-chat with a friend about body-issues and societal expectations. I think the 'boring' parts that other commenters are refereing to are those in which she elaborates about the struggles in her career. I loved those parts the most because they were inspirational.

I would reccommend this book to teens and young women.

I wanted a book that would make me laugh out loud. This was not it. There were some amusing moments, but overall it was dull.

I LOVE Mindy Kaling, but the book wasn't quite as funny as I thought it was going to be. Still entertaining, but I think Kelly Oxford's book "Everything Is Perfect When You're A Liar" was better.

This is a great summer read! I took it on vacation last summer and loved it. I laughed, it made me feel good about myself, but mostly I liked feeling that I was in on a joke with a good friend.

Are you kidding me? The thrill of living was high school? Come on, Mr. Cougar Mellencamp. Get a life.

I have no discipline; I'm like if Private Benjamin had never toughened up but, in fact, got worse.

I'm getting made fun of because I used to be fat? The laws of bullying allow you to be cruel even when the victim had made strides for improvement? This is when I realized that bullies have no code of conduct.
