BOOK REVIEW: If You Ask Me (And of Course You Won't) by Betty White



ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon):

The New York Times bestseller from the beloved actress who's made us laugh on shows from The Mary Tyler Moore Show to Saturday Night Live! In this candid take on everything from the unglamorous reality behind red-carpet affairs to her beauty regimen ("I have no idea what color my hair is, and I never intend to find out"), Betty White shares her observations about life, celebrity, and love (for humans and animals). Filled with photos, If You Ask Me is funny, sweet, and straight to the point-just like Betty.

MY REVIEW:

I've never seen Hot in Cleveland, and The Mary Tyler Moore Show was before my time, but I remember Betty White's ditzy character "Rose" in the Golden Girls.  I remember thinking she was old then, but that show ended nearly 25 years ago and she's still going strong!  She was 89 when she wrote this book.  Now she's 93 and still filming Hot in Cleveland!

I don't know how anyone could not love Betty White.  Even if you haven't seen her shows, it's fun to hear* her talk about her experiences in Hollywood (where she has worked in a variety of roles over a period of about 70 years!) and her love of animals.  If You Ask Me is lighthearted and funny.  I recommend it if you are a Betty White fan.

* NOTE: I "read" the audiobook format.
