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.

Who Doesn't Love Betty White?

What is there to say? Everyone loves Betty White! This is the first book of hers that I've read but I fully intend on reading all of them. Thank you for your humorous, insightful and loving view on life. Betty is a true classy lady and it's no wonder she's adored by all, especially our animal friends.

Good!

Great little quick read! Makes me want to read one of her longer autobiographies! Betty narrated beautifully and I loved hearing about her love of animals

Not impressed

Love Betty White but book is very random and quite boring. Also, sometimes her voice sounds deep... different from what I'm used to.

Fun, light

Nothing earth shattering but a good car audio. Not too long. Betty has such a great outlook on life. That in itself is inspiring.

Wanted to like it more than I did.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

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.

Too Short

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

My only complaint was that it was not long enough. Betty White is engaging and enjoyable to listen to.

Any additional comments?

She is remarkable woman, telling useable advice.
