Publisher's Summary

Mindy Kaling has found herself at a turning point. So in Why Not Me?, she shares her ongoing journey to find fulfilment and adventure in her adult life, be it falling in love at work, seeking new friendships in unlikely places, or attempting to be the first person in history to lose weight without any behaviour modification whatsoever.
In 'How to Look Spectacular', she reveals her tongue-in-cheek solutions for guaranteed on-camera beauty. 'Player' tells the story of Mindy being seduced, then dumped, by a female friend in LA. And in 'Soup Snakes', she spills some secrets on her relationship with ex-boyfriend and close friend, B. J. Novak.
Mindy has put the anxieties, the glamour and the celebrations of her second coming-of-age into this book, to which anyone can relate. (And, if they can't, they can skip to the parts where she talks about meeting Bradley Cooper.)

Refreshing and empowering

Mindy as an actress and writer is super talented and it comes across fabulously in this book. Her brutal honesty is refreshing and empowering, and there are many days I think what would Mindy do!

Not great

I really like her show, but this book is repetitive and self indulgent. Tina Fey has written just one book, kinda says it all.

Narration went through me

Couldn't finish listening to this because after about 10 minutes the narration sent me over the edge. The whine in the voice did nothing to add humour to the story. Sorry didn't enjoy it.

Mindy is hilariously funny.

I loved it and found it hard to stop listening. I can't wait to read or listen to more books by Mindy.

Just what you want!

This was fun funny and truthfully written. It’s young adult friendly and it is full of good feels and interesting stories. Mindy paints a real picture of how she got where she is through hard work good luck and talent. But she makes it seem much more interesting then that lol.
