Publisher's Summary

"Here is Betty White - a woman who has been on television forever!" is generally how Betty White is introduced. And quite accurately, too, since she first appeared in 1949, when both she and television were rank beginners.

Since then, she has had one of the most amazing careers in TV, winning five Emmy awards, creating such unforgettable characters as Sue Ann Nivens and Rose Nylund, and appearing in a host of television classics from 1952's Life with Elizabeth to The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls.

Here We Go Again gives an overview of television's golden era, packed full of wonderful anecdotes about the many famous personalities with whom Betty has worked. It also gives a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at television over five decades, from her first show, Hollywood on Television, which ran live five and a half hours a day, six days a week (33 hours per week!), to Betty's current television work. In addition, she talks about her personal life - how her hectic career caused strain in her relationships and how she finally found happiness with her third husband, the late talk-show host Allen Ludden.

As warm and funny as its author, Here We Go Again will thrill her many fans and delight all of those who are interested in the history of America's most popular form of entertainment.

I don't understand why this was abridged...

Any additional comments?

I love Betty White. She is an amazing person and I grew up on Golden Girls even though that came much later in her career. I was so excited to get this book and listened to it in two sittings. There were moments when I was confused becasue Betty would be talking about one part of her life and then awkwardly segue into a totally different area. I was left wondering how these two things connected or why the segued piece mattered. There are several places where this happens and you feel kind of jolted, like didn't an editor read this before sending it to the publishers... And then at the end I heard every ardent readers or listeners worst nightmare - ABRIDGED. No wonder there were several choppy, disjointed connections that were not even connections at all. What was so boring about that section that it was taken out? I bought the book because I was interested in what Betty had to say about her life, career, the world and I was ROBBED. I don't know why anyone would abridged a book ever! So if you love Betty White get the other book If You Ask Me: (And of Course You Won't). It is UNABRIDGED! So you'll get the whole amazing experience of Betty!

Betty's Life Story Is Amazing!

Where does Here We Go Again rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is by far one of the best short audio books I have listened too and It's not just because I love all things Betty White. Hearing all she has been through with her personal and professional life was inspiring.

What did you like best about this story?

Her Long and Loving relationship with her mother and the support that her mother gave her throughout her life, and how she stay her mother, sharp as a tack until the very end.

What about Betty White’s performance did you like?

Her candid honesty about everything that had happened up until the book was finished. A lot has happened since then, but still an awe inspiring store of her brilliant and talented life.

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

It was and I did It was long enough that I was able to listen to it while I was on my way to BestBuy, while I shopped, Had Lunch and finished as I got home from the shopping experience.

Any additional comments?

Betty White is an amazing human being and I share a lot of her traits, love for all human beings, animals and friends.

Needs a sequel.

What an eventful life Betty White has lived. I didn't notice the pub date on this book (1995) and was disappointed when it stopped 20 years short of now. The audio version performed by Betty is enjoyable and uplifting. Betty's warm voice is as comforting as a cup of tea.
