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 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.
Featuring all-new material, with a focus on the past 15 years of her life, If You Ask Me is funny, sweet, and to the point - just like Betty White.

Lover of words w/ exp. in the lgl & edu industries. Enjoy all genres and deeply appreciate audiobooks. Good narrators make the difference
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.
Any time Betty gets reminisent about he husband, I tear up. They must have had a beautiful love affair!
Say something about yourself!
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.
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 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.
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.
Betty's book ranks 2nd on my audio books that I have listened. Betty is a good narrator
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...
Upper middle. It was just a fun easy listening book.
Sure. Who doesn't love Betty White? And who doesn't love hearing stories from our more seasoned citizens!
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.
Betty White is someone all of us can learn something from and enjoy spending time with...even if it's only through an audiobook.
