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.

This enhanced eBook includes an audio introduction from the author; audio commentary from Mindy’s friends, including The Office costar B. J. Novak and Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur; bonus photos, including an exclusive “Avalanche of Awkwardness” slideshow of never-before-seen childhood photos with audio commentary; and three full chapters read by the author.

    I've watched Mindy in interviews & always thought she was hilarious. I truly enjoyed this book! But- did anyone else have more than 1 spelling error on the "about the author" section!? How did publishers not catch that? Oh & ... Guys really do put on their shoes really slow.
  • Loved it!!

    This woman is hilarious. If you want a quick read, and to laugh out loud this is your book. Not deep, not thought provoking, just fun
  • Witty and pleasant

  • Laughing out loud the entire time.

    Funniest book I've ever read. I read an excerpt to a girl at work that I was considering being work-friends with. When she didn't laugh I quickly pulled the E-break on that potential relationship. Considering making all current friends read and use their reaction to determine if I really need them in my life.
  • Yes yes yes!

    I was laughing so loudly every other page of this book. No book has ever made me laugh out loud this much! I love everything Mindy! #TrueMindian
  • Nailed it

    By Mistyk12
    I loved this book! It was an easy to read, hysterical and humble insight to the genius that is Mindy Kaling. I most definitely would recommend springing for the enhanced edition. It's only a couple bucks more and she reads 2 chapters of the book to instead of you reading the book in her voice via your internal monologue you actually get to sit back, relax and let her do all the work. Mind blown yet? It should be.
  • No one should hang out without Mindy

    I didn't think it was possible to like Mindy Kaling more. I was already a big fan. But this book just cemented my fandom. Why would anyone NOT want to hang out with her?
