This book is fantastic if you like the author in the first place. I like her a lot and enjoyed her essays and anecdotes. Don't go in expecting a masterpiece. This is good easy reading, as she explains in the preface. I don't know why so many people are expecting something different.

Some parts of the book are boring, it wasn't the best book could have been done better.

Just awful. I'm not familiar with the American version of the office, but I at least expected this to be a) funny, b) relateable, or c) interesting. None of the above, plus some sexism, racism and body shaming thrown in for good measure.

i LOVE Mindy! What I really liked about her book is that it helped me understand and know her more as a person vs. this hilarious person/celebrity I've seen on tv. Reading her journey and understanding a bit of where she came from and how she struggled and what not really made me respect her more and inspire me in my life.

I love Mindy Kaling but this book is pretty boring, to be honest. It rambles in a way that's not tremendously creative. I'm 24 and found myself thinking "I would appreciate this more if I was 15."

Made me laugh at times, but other sections I skipped completely because I didn't care about the topic - such as a list of the author's revenge fantasies.

Found this book entertaining but a little dry. It seemed like the book seemed to drag in parts but then became hilarious. An easy read, easy on the brain.

I love Mindy Kaling and I loved this book. I LOLd innumerable times- which never happens. It's great to see her experiences to get where she is and you get a peak (from her life) to where her type of writing abd humor is derived from. The final 15% of the book is a little lost trying to wrap up, but the other 85% I give 100%!

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.
