New release Tuesday!
Why Not Me? is a funny collection of essays that has the perfect balance of wit, humor, and candor that Kaling is known for. In the book, you will find great tidbits from her work on The Office and The Mindy Project, stories about her relationships with various celebs (being soupsnakes with BJ Novak, offending unnamed pop stars, etc.), and her tips for looking like a movie star and various dieting mishaps. In addition, there are some great inspirational pieces that (of course) manage to stay hilarious, such as her tips on confidence and her commencement speech to Harvard.
This book won’t change your life (and if this is what you’re expecting, you don’t know Mindy), but Mindy Kaling shows incredible growth from Is Everybody Hanging Out Without Me? and passion for what she does and what she stands for.
The unabridged audio version of Why Not Me? is highly entertaining as Kaling reads it herself. However, it should also be noted that there are pictures in the physical book that are not made available to the listener.
