Book Description

May 3 2011
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 fifteen years of her life, If You Ask Me is funny, sweet, and to the point-just like Betty White.

2.0 out of 5 stars Betty's great; the book, not so much May 16 2011
Beloved Betty's latest book is almost a non-book, compared to her earlier ones. I loved her memoir, "Here We Go Again," but this is a shallow quickie unworthy of such a great star. There's nothing here that you won't hear Betty say on a talk show. Each chapter, dealing with tried-and-true topics such as aging, dating, costars, and animals, is surrounded by blank pages, contain as few as two or three brief paragraphs, has extra-wide margins, and devotes an entire page to a photo. In short, there's not a lot here.

I'm a big Betty White fan, but I felt let down by this book. It's all familiar territory and she overdoes the "I'm 89!" thing. It's as if someone followed her around with a microphone for a weekend, suggesting topics and recording her off-the-cuff remarks. There's nothing here that will surprise or enlighten. And a minor editing quibble: She frequently underlines words for emphasis instead of using italics, which I prefer. I'm sure the audio version with Betty reading the book would be much more enjoyable, as she is so warm and friendly and has such a pleasant voice.

2.0 out of 5 stars Light and Fluffy July 13 2011
By Myfanwy
I like Betty White, but found this book lacking in substance. I didn't know it was her fourth autobiographical instalment so I was expecting more details of her life. Instead I found she only mentioned her latest endeavour, Hot in Cleveland, a few times and only lightly touched on other subjects. The book was basically short and fluffy.
