Publisher's Summary

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.

    Story
    "Betty White, in your car, on your walk...loved it!"
    If you could sum up If You Ask Me in three words, what would they be?

    I liked Betty White before listening to her read this book. Now, I love this dear lady. She's a blast...young at heart and wise in choosing to love life. I told three people about this book before I even finished listening.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Betty talked about her experience with Coco/Koko the famous primate. What a neat experience to learn about.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed listening to this while walking. It felt like Betty was talking and talking with me. Really and enjoyable book from start to finish.

    A nice easy listen. This is Betty White sitting down at the kitchen table and telling you her story

    "Betty White is Delightful!"

    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.

    "Big yawn!"
    Would you try another book from Betty White and/or Betty White?

    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.

    "A beautiful, grounded lady w/ a lovely voice."
    Where does If You Ask Me rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Having no elders, I'd personally listen to this time and again over my life.


    What other book might you compare If You Ask Me to and why?

    It's Betty White, not comparable.

    "Since you asked me . . ."

    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.

    "One of many"

    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.

    What did you love best about If You Ask Me?

    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.
