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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "After 6 books she has nothing left to say"

    I got it because I heard her in interviews and thought she was hilarious. This book is not funny nor interesting. I didn't finish it.

    I love audible to listen to my books while commuting in the SF Bay Area. It makes the time go by so fast and keeps me engrossed.

    "Delightful performance"
    What made the experience of listening to If You Ask Me the most enjoyable?

    Betty White is so pleasant to listen to! I was stuck on a plane delayed on the jetway for over four hours late one night, and just as the other passengers were starting to lose their tempers, I started listening to Betty White and was saved. She's sweet and at times a bit too sentimental for my taste (especially when she talks about animals) but she seems so entirely genuine that I every time I disliked a moment I forgave her instantly. Betty creates an easy rapport in her accessible stories and her warm, happy narration.

    "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.

    "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.
