    It-girl Betty White delivers a hilarious, slyly profound take on love, life, celebrity, and everything in between. Drawing from a lifetime of lessons learned, seven-time Emmy winner Betty White's wit and wisdom take center stage as she tackles topics like friendship, romantic love, aging, television, fans, love for animals, and the brave new world of celebrity. If You Ask Me mixes her thoughtful observations with humorous stories from a seven- decade career in Hollywood. Longtime fans and new fans alike will relish Betty's candid take on everything....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is an enjoyable entertaining read, a perfect showcase for the charming Betty White


    What does Betty White bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This book is a perfect "listen". I would recommend this book as one to listen to, not necessarily to read.


    Could you see If You Ask Me being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No ....No one


    Any additional comments?

    Light, fluffy listen. No one but Betty should "read" her own books for the audible audience. Remarkable and talented lady.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Jan says: "What a great surprise!"
    "One of the Best Narrations"
    Overall

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and have listened to it several times. While the story is well written, easily capturing and keeping the listeners attention,the narration guarantees a fully satisfying experience for the listeners. No horrible fake southern accents here! The women narrators read beautifully with true melodic accents from the deep south. The women bring to life the characters - I felt that I had met them all by the end. Truly the best narration I have ever heard.
