I love Betty White and she is just as bright and chipper in this book as in her TV shows. I have to believe that she must be a delightful person. Hope when I'm 90+ that I have her wisdom and enthusiasm for life. It isn't your typical autobiography but it is interesting and fun to listen to her describe some of the events in her long and eventful life. She loves pets and is always bringing new ones into her home. Hope we never get too old to adopt needy pets. She just makes you feel happy.
I thought I was getting comedy - it was really about her life, her awards, and her accolades. Blah, blah, blah... Not what I was looking for.

Having no elders, I'd personally listen to this time and again over my life.
It's Betty White, not comparable.
Having been a fan of this actor in "Golden Girls" I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about her life, both past and present. It is funny, inspirational and heartwarming.
Betty White is funny, beautiful and timeless. This is a good book, it's just that she has other, funnier books. That's what you get for living so long, we should all be so lucky.
Betty's story is refreshingly real and naturally funny. I love listening to her and find myself going back and relistening when I need a little lighthearted humor to lift my day. She's a peach.
Nurse working at being a nurse practitioner. The only way I have time to read for pleasure is audio books while I drive to work. I have always liked audio books.
I felt I was talking to Betty in my living room or hers. She is vivacious and an inspiration.
I loved the narration
Growing better Betty
this was a wonderful book to listen to on a long trip. Great to hear her stories in Betty's voice and laughter!
I'm a corporate training consultant and adjunct professor who loves to read! I'm always looking for the next big thing.
This book is so great! It's funny and touching at the same time. Betty White can still entertain after all these years. I hope she continues to write many more books in the future to make me laugh as much as this one has. Plus, she's super as the narrator! She knows how to deliver a line, and it makes the book that much better. Excellent read!
Love Betty White!
Since it's mostly a selection of short essays that are rather autobiographical, I would say it's similar to "Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me (And Other Concerns)" by Mindy Kaling, and also to "Bossy Pants" by Tina Fey.
I'm not very emotional, so no. But it was very cute when she'd mention her late husband Allen Ludden.
