    "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.

    "Fantastic"
    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.

    I loved the narration

    Growing better Betty

    "I Have a Crush on Betty White!"

    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!

    "Betty White can do no wrong"
    If you could sum up If You Ask Me in three words, what would they be?

    Love Betty White!


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

    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.


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

    I'm not very emotional, so no. But it was very cute when she'd mention her late husband Allen Ludden.

    Story
    "Suzanne to Elka and more"

    I first recall Betty White as Suzanne Niven in the "Mary Tyler Moore" show. Countless interviews and appearances later It is no wonder to me why Betty White is the beloved icon she is.

    What I enjoyed most about "If you ask me" was that Betty narrated it herself and no one could have done a better job. In her own words and voice you get the opportunity to learn of this extraordinary woman and her life. The depth of her love and relationship with her late Husband Alan, her dedication to and love for animals, and the relationships with her many co-stars.

    The only thing exposed here is Betty's care for others, her conscious remaking of her image into what she is today, and her love and respect for those she has spent so many years working with.

    "If you ask Me!"
    What did you love best about If You Ask Me?

    It is only about a 5 hour listen - so my husband and I finished it in 2 round trips to the big city!
    It is not a story or an autobiography - but rather each chapter is about a specific topic, like Pets. And the chapters are short, funny and contain personal annecdotes.
    I enjoyed it.


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

    It often made me laugh!

    "I have always loved Betty White..."

    Short little book ... really no depth to the content, it's really more of Betty's recollections and thoughts and wisdom... but an enjoyable listen because there is no one like Betty White.

    "A Little Disappointed"

    I really like Betty White. Her honesty and integrity are refreshing in a world where those things can be hard to find. She and I are also kindred spirits where animals are concerned. Those stories were the best part of this book for me, as I could totally relate to them. But there weren't many of those, and I found the book to be overall lacking in depth. I enjoyed listening to Betty read it, but I was a little disappointed. Still like & admire the author, though!
