Longtime fans and new fans alike will relish Betty's candid take on everything from her rumored crush on Robert Redford (true) to her beauty regimen ("I have no idea what color my hair is and I never intend to find out") to the Facebook campaign that helped persuade her to host Saturday Night Live despite her having declined the hosting job three times already.

    "Nothing Betty does could go wrong"
    Would you listen to If You Ask Me again? Why?

    Yes, I love listening to Betty White. I enjoy the way she talks to you like she's sitting in your living room. The stories and advise are mixed with sincerty and humor.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Any time Betty gets reminisent about he husband, I tear up. They must have had a beautiful love affair!

    "Good!"

    Great little quick read! Makes me want to read one of her longer autobiographies! Betty narrated beautifully and I loved hearing about her love of animals

    "Not impressed"

    Love Betty White but book is very random and quite boring. Also, sometimes her voice sounds deep... different from what I'm used to.

    "Fun, light"

    Nothing earth shattering but a good car audio. Not too long. Betty has such a great outlook on life. That in itself is inspiring.

    "Wanted to like it more than I did."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I love Betty White and was really anticipating some of her usual magic and naughtiness. No doubt, she is one of my favorites and I'll watch anything that she's in, but the book was a little to syrupy sweet and 'delightfully' nostalgic for my taste. -Still love her though.

    "Too Short"
    What made the experience of listening to If You Ask Me the most enjoyable?

    My only complaint was that it was not long enough. Betty White is engaging and enjoyable to listen to.

    She is remarkable woman, telling useable advice.

    "I'm now a big fan"

    I really liked the brief glimpse into Betty Whites life. She seems like a great person, who happens to be a good actress. I think Betty is someone who positively impacts the lives of everyone she meets. The book had a few "repeated sentences' that would have been better omitted but the book was very enjoyable.

    "Great performance of mediocre material"

    Betty White's excellent comedic timing helps the audiobook quite a bit. I don't think I'd have enjoyed the book nearly as much had it not been read to me by the lady herself. This is the first book I ever read by White, and I'm guessing that her earlier books are probably better. This was fine, I don't want my money or time back, but that's no ringing endorsement. If I lent this book to someone else and they never gave it back, I wouldn't care.

    Story
    "BETTY THAT NEVER AGE! YOUNG AT HEART & MIND"
    Where does If You Ask Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Betty's book ranks 2nd on my audio books that I have listened. Betty is a good narrator


    What did you like best about this story?

    Betty is a very caring person. She loves all human race and the animal kingdom. She is very personable when she talks about a chapter. She makes each chapter memorable and characters seems to be in the same room with her. I personally like her "crush" on Robert Redford...


    Have you listened to any of Betty White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    "Can Betty Be My Gramma?"
    Where does If You Ask Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Upper middle. It was just a fun easy listening book.


    Would you recommend If You Ask Me to your friends? Why or why not?

    Sure. Who doesn't love Betty White? And who doesn't love hearing stories from our more seasoned citizens!


    Have you listened to any of Betty White’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Her love for Allen Ludden is very touching, but I replayed the chapter about Coco over and over, getting emotional each time. I've repeated the story to many friends. Her love of animals is wonderful. I wish I were in her position so I could experience some of her animal encounters.


    Any additional comments?

    Betty White is someone all of us can learn something from and enjoy spending time with...even if it's only through an audiobook.
