Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling Book Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER •  In this hilarious instant classic, the creator of The Mindy Project and Never Have I Ever invites readers on a tour of her life and her unscientific observations on romance, friendship, and Hollywood.

“[Kaling is] like Tina Fey’s cool little sister. Or perhaps . . . the next Nora Ephron.”—The New York Times
 
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!
 
With several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls, Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? proves that 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.
 
Praise for Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?

“Where have you been all our lives, Mindy?”—Glamour

“Who wouldn’t want to hang out with Mindy Kaling? . . . [Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?] is like a mash note to comedy nerds.”—Time Out New York

“Very funny.”—Boston Globe

Good readExpressive, funny, introspective, insightful, inviting, the kind of book to read at the end of a Bad day, or any day really but I appreciate it more on bad days.The kind of quips that make you smile. Very honest..Score: 4/5

Mindy KalingFunny, cute and easy to ready. I was disappointed when I finished it!.Score: 5/5

Hilarious and HonestI thoroughly enjoyed this book as well as Mindy's new book. She tells interesting personal stories about her childhood, romantic life, and rise to fame. She is that one funny friend we all want to have. Most importantly, she is so real. I definitely recommend this book..Score: 4/5

Funny...I was expecting to like this book, and I did..Score: 4/5

Just what I neededI read this while I was deathly ill (not even kidding about this) and it made me feel a little better. I can't wait to read more from Mindy and to be back to health, so I can actually lol at her jokes. Read it and you'll smile - which is totally worth ten bucks..Score: 5/5

Best Book! Read in one sitting!I usually don't have the attention span to read a whole book cover to cover but this book was an exception for me. It was filled with humor and actually helpful insight that kept me hungry for more. Kaling is a gifted author and comedian in her own right..Score: 5/5

Great book. Perfect for disconnectingGreat book and easy read. I read it before bed to de-stress and disconnect from my day..Score: 5/5

MehI wish I hadn't read this book, actually. I like "The Mindy Project" and have a lot of respect for the show that has so many good feminist moments. But this put Mindy Kaling in a different light for me, and now I'm not sure I would want to meet her anymore..Score: 3/5

I adored it!!!As a writer about to move to LA in hopes to land a long career on a great tv series and hopefully star in my own tv show one day, this book was amazing and completely inspiring. I read it in an entire day since I'm snowed in and can't leave my house at all. I loved Mindy on The Office and had no idea she wrote some of the funniest episodes. I now love The Mindy Project and I'm just obsessed over and her and proud of her success. I've finally found a nonwhite woman to look up to!!! Yay!! I can't wait to hear more from her!.Score: 5/5

ReadAlready read. Read folks. It is important . Read it..Score: 5/5

Great start then lost charmI was drawn by the funny beginning. However this book gets less interesting from the middle. I still think it is worth reading since there are not that many Asian best selling authors out there, especially a young woman..Score: 4/5

Love her!My fiancé, then bf, bought me this book for my birthday after having introduced me to The Mindy Project. HILARIOUS!! I love love love Mindy Kaling. If only we were BFF's :).Score: 5/5

I couldn't put it downI'm a fan of Mindy's so I had to read her book. I'm so glad I did. It's very easy to get lost in this book, she's such a great story teller. If you think you have a good idea about who Mindy is based off her shows, your in for a treat she's a lil of each character she plays and so much more. I hate that I finished the book,but I leave it feeling like I've known Mindy for a long time..Score: 5/5

Love this book!I loved this book! I’m a huge fan of Mindy Kaling ever since I started watching The Mindy Project. The book is equally hilarious. Had a great time reading it and can’t wait to buy her next book!.Score: 4/5

Skip itAbsolutely agree with the review before me. started strong & funny, then quickly became boring and long winded. i, too, skimmed the end of the book - lots of hypothetical lists which i felt she used to take up space. wouldn’t recommend unfortunately!.Score: 3/5

Great read!I'm a already a huge fan of Mindy Kaling and this book just made me love her even more. It's hilarious and refreshingly honest at the same time. I hope she writes more books in the near future..Score: 5/5

I couldn't stop reading itJust like Mindy didn't want to say goodbye, I didn't want to stop reading the book. It was very entertaining and I learned a lot from her. I can't wait for the next book!.Score: 5/5

AmazingMindy is such a doll. she is so funny, I laughed so much throughout reading this book. I shouldn't read this during school because people probably look at my like I'm an idiot because I'm smiling so big. I love mindy kaling, she's one of my greatest idols..Score: 5/5

Starts very strong then fadesThis book had me laughing out loud in the beginning, bored by the middle, and skimming the end wishing it would be over. So just read the first third, it’s hilarious. After that it gets repetitive like an SNL sketch that’s gone on too long..Score: 3/5

Just mindyI loved the book because of its voice. I could literally hear Mindy through her words and it made it that much funnier. I thought the book was light, funny, honest and charming..Score: 4/5

I.loved.this.book. The EndMindy Kaling (who has always been my friend in my head but not in a stalkerish, weirdo way but in a "bumped into her at the grocery store and now we are friends" kinda way) is laugh out loud funny. This book literally had me in tears at my doctor's office (yes people were looking at me strangely but I didn't care, Thanks Min) and I can't wait to read it again. Love it!.Score: 5/5

Good readI enjoyed reading this book and wished it was out there when I was a young girl, as it motivates you to keep sight of your goals... I on the other hand am the same age as Mindy and lost sight if my goals. I wished she would have included what happened to Brenda her bff, since she was featured in the book so much and then not talked about after she moved to LA... But you know they are still friends bc she was Mindy's date to an award show..Score: 4/5

LOVE LOVE LOVEMindy writes in a way where you feel like you're sitting down over coffee as she rehashes some hilarious moments from her past. She's so relatable and she has a way of making you think back and remember some of the funniest moments of your own past. I am disappointed though, as she's left me with numerous questions such as... Do Mindy and Brenda still spend time writing together for funsies? Can she elaborate on David? When will Matt & Ben: The Bourne Sequel come out? Will Mindy and Brenda still portray Matt and Ben themselves? Have they considered having Matt and Ben play each other? Will Mindy ever have own late night talk show? Is it okay to request that, at some point, she does? If I were to run into Mindy, would it be acceptable to give her a hug and tell her she's amazing? I have a ton of silly, arbitrary questions that I would love answered. I'll send them to Mindy so she can appropriately answer them all in her next book. Or whenever. I get she's busy with a ton of things. I'd hate to see any of her projects suffer. Okay, I'm rambling. If you love Mindy Kaling, you will love her book even more. Okay, not more, but, like, you know what I mean. Great job!.Score: 5/5

A most readI loved this book, I felt like she was talking to me directly as my best friend. This is the perfect gift or a twenty-something..Score: 5/5

Kaling is amazing in every aspectThis book was amazing. I do not regret the nights staying up to continue reading it. It made me laugh out loud, made question things in life, and made me want to watch reruns of her shows. Mindy Kaling is truely talented in everything she does. If you love her other works, you will not be disappointed..Score: 5/5

Fun read!I enjoyed this book! I think it boils down to this--if you're a fan of Mindy Kaling and her work, you'll like this book. If you're not a fan, don't read this, because you won't find it funny. The Mindy Project is one of my favorite shows, so I really enjoyed reading this collection of stories. I only wish I'd gotten the enhanced version, which I may do in the future!.Score: 4/5

EnjoyableI really enjoyed the book. It was funny and interesting. She writes how I hear her speak in the show, so it was easy for me to visualize her writing. It seems very genuine..Score: 4/5

Fun ReadI purchased this book to read on a long 14 hour flight. It was so funny and very relatable. She puts on paper what most only think about and wouldn't say out loud. Thoroughly enjoyable read..Score: 5/5

Loved it.From front page to back cover, this is the perfect book for every twenty-something who sympathizes with the kind of comediennes who make fun of things like Taylor Swift's non-existent dating life, and who tell it like it really is to be a human, and not a robot..Score: 5/5
