    One thought on “If You Ask Me: And of Course You Won't”

    1. Back in the sixties, there was a man on our block who worked at a television studio as a stage hand. He once told me that there was a lot of dead time during the shootings while he waited to change the sets. The guys would go over to the studio where they were filming the TV game show Password. The attraction: watching Betty White cuss and swear between takes. He told me, "She really has a mouth on her but she is so sweet and funny it's hilarious."When a friend loaned me this book, I thought it [...]

    2. I once met a person who did not like Betty White.I just wanted to get that out of the way as it seems everyone is asking if there is anyone who does not like Betty White. Yes there is, but I am not one of those rebellious hearts, but go with the general flow and adore her to death.Betty White is a sweetheart, she is the kind of woman you could listen hours while knitting and solving word puzzles. It would be all cozy, a really nice time and you would probably feel a lot older than she is even no [...]

    3. First off, is there anyone who doesn't love Betty White? You show me that person and I willoh you don't want to know what I'll do! There's no room on this planet for haters of lovely old ladies! Hold me back! I'm not responsible for my actions!If you don't love her book, well, that's another thing.Her latest autobiography If You Ask Me, is a slim volume that relates a few enjoyable anecdotes about showbiz, gives advice on acting, and talks about her love of animals. There's nothing earth-shatter [...]

    4. Find all of my reviews at: 52bookminimum/I grabbed this from the library after seeing my friend HFK's review a week or so ago when I was looking for something new to listen to on the drive to and from work. This fit perfectly into my 15-20 commute window and I was able to finish it in just a couple of days. While there's nothing real deep about this selection, if you like Betty White - you should like it just fine. And if you don't like Betty White?????

    5. *** 3.44 *** "“Animals don’t lie. Animals don’t criticize. If animals have moody days, they handle them better than humans do.”"I love Betty White! I don't think that anything she does or touches could ever be awful, but I do have to admit, this book of biographical musings is not the best she has ever written. She was 89 years old when she wrote it and the cadence of the prose and way of writing make you feel like your grandma is telling you stories of her daily life. Nothing is wrong w [...]

    6. If you Ask Me: And of Course You Won'tnarrated by the author, Betty White, is simply delightful. She talks about all kinds of different subjects, but the majority of them involved animals and how much she loves them. And I love that about her. The only flaw I found with this is that it was too short. I love you Betty, but I needed more! If you adore Betty White, then I highly recommend you listen to her narrate this audiobook!

    7. Awwwww, Betty White. I haven't had grandparents in years and I want her! She loves animals possibly more than I do and she has a room full of stuffed ones (not taxidermied!). She tells them that she loves them. Out loud. Then again, Cloris Leachman would be a good grandma too. She might have a room full of liquor that she talks to.

    8. 3.5 stars :)How can you not love Betty White ? :)A fun collection of reminisces, an added bonus listening to it in Betty's voice she's adorable and I want to adopt her as a grandma :)My favorite anecdotes were the ones from the proposal, the time she locked herself out of the house, and about her animals.Not much to say except this was a fun read check it out:)

    9. Who doesn't love Betty White? I mean does anyone actually dislike her? If sowhy?I can remember watching Betty White on TV when I was a kid (sorry Betty but there aren't many performers I can still say that about) and she's just a sharp and just as funny (unless of course she's doing drama) as she ever was.This book is more a book of quick reminiscences on her life and then comments on what's going on NOW in her life. We get a lot of vignettes about various parts of her life (I'd say especially h [...]

    10. This was a cute story that took me very little time to read, because it is so short. The book was short, simple and cute. There wasn't anything really eye-opening or super special about this book, but I did find it interesting when she talked about her love for animals and all the volunteering and adopting of pets that she does.This book was written like an interview.A solid 3 stars.

    11. My God, I love Betty White.I already finished one book today, cracked into this one and found that I could not go to bed until I finished it.Not so much a memoir (she's already written 5 of those), but more like little topics that she reviews. She's adorable.A couple of things made me sad. A) In talking about age and how it shouldn't bother you, she says that Estelle Getty was TERRIFIED of getting old and sick, to the point that the writers of Golden Girls had to be careful of the kind of jokes [...]

    12. Betty White reading a book by Betty White about Betty White's thoughts and memories, what's not to love. The acres, comedian, activist and beautiful human let's her mind fly open and give us some tidbits into her soul. She is a treat in this this to short novel. I didn't even finish weeding half my yard and the book was done :(

    13. It's Betty White, what's not to love! I listened to this on audiobook and it was fantastic, I loved hearing Betty talk about her experiences, she is a wonderful human being. I would for sure recommend this book for a little inspiration, some laughs, and for an overall enjoyable experience!

    14. It was really fun to hear these humorous and poignant anecdotes read by the author, who used her great sense of timing and easy way of expressing herself through each segment and story. This book was enjoyable and informative. It was neat to hear stories about Betty White from the various eras she's lived through. From the beginning of television and her passion for animals to computers and friendships and her career, Betty White shares her heart and humor with the listener as if they were the c [...]

    15. A fun, short bit of Betty White's life. I didn't expect anything more than a feel-good set of anecdotes & that's what was delivered. I hadn't realized she was so into animal rescue & that was nice to find out as were her times with Coco the gorilla & a couple of whales. Good stuff, kind of a quick draft of good clean fun to cleanse the palate from the last book I read.

    16. I love reading through comedians autobiographies, they are usually so light and fun they are great breaks between really dark books – and I’ve hit a few of those recently.Betty White is such a kind person, and so funny, I loved listening to her audiobook. It’s a really short book, the audio was only 2.5 hours long and since I listen at 1.5X it went through in a little over an hour.It didn’t go into much about her childhood or anything really before she was on Golden Girls, most of it has [...]

    17. Betty has a pretty impressive resume. She's an actress, writer, comedian, puzzle solver, stuffed animal collector, animal rights activist and has lived to see a lot of the world change. However, this lighthearted memoir is just a small piece of Betty. 2 stars on audio. 1 star content.

    18. From the book jacket - 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. My ReactionsI feel a little mean not liking this more. I love Betty White, and some of the essays in this book are spot on perfect. But it’s pretty lightweight in substance, and I felt a little like I was on one of those obligatory visits to an elderly relative when I [...]

    19. I enjoyed hearing Betty White narrate this book of disparate essays, sort of like hearing your grandmother talk about her life, dispense a little advice and maybe chide you for sweating the small stuff. There aren’t any great revelations or aha moments, but you can appreciate this woman’s joie de vivre and the gratitude she feels for a life well-lived.

    20. This lady is absolutely amazing and no one will tell me otherwise. How could I not give her 5 stars? Plus:This happenedAnd it was the best day of my life.

    21. I hope this doesn't constitute cheating, but I didn't actually read this book. It is in audio book format and I listened to it on a trip last weekend. What makes it super-awesome though, is that it was read by the author herself, Betty White!"If You Ask Me" is a collection of the author's thoughts on many different subjects. She talks about Hollywood, health, and my favorite subject, pets. You really get to understand what a down to earth person Betty White is. She discusses the Mary Tyler Moore [...]

    22. Ik was al fan van Betty White, maar nu ik weet dat ze een stationery verslaving met me deelt vind ik haar nog duizend keer toffer 😊

    23. This book was a very short read for me. I picked it up, because I am a huge Betty White fan. It was not Earth Shattering, but I didn't expect it to be. It was short biographical blurbs.Pros: Betty White photos. Betty's love for animals that bleeds through the pages and are mentioned in over half of the book. Betty's witty personality. Cons: Formatting, formatting formatting. For the conservation effort that Betty feels for the environment, you would think that she may have had a problem with the [...]

    24. To say that Betty White's latest book—I suppose we should call it that, as it's tough to deny that it got printed and appears on bookstore and library shelves—is a bit random and scattered, is an understatement. To imply it's a lot like listening to your aged grandmother ramble about the good old days when she's in a talkative mood, would be unkind. To suggest that it's not great literature, or even really readable. . . well, that's kind of missing the point.I was able to complete this sligh [...]

    25. I liked that Betty White read it herself. She has some interesting opinions and I learned a lot about her that I did not know from just seeing her appear on golden girls or SNL. I think I like her a little less, but respect her more, if that makes any sense.

    26. A fun book. Betty White has always seemed so nice and so funny. This book is very short, but it does have lots of nice pictures.

    27. I love Betty White. Unfortunately I missed her birthday special recently so instead, I watched a ton of Youtube videos of her, in current and old roles, on Inside the Actors Studio, on old game shows, etc.This book was a short, cute read about her life, written in 2011. It was a very quick read but I really felt myself wanting more. I wanted more substance as well as more of her humor in the writing, and while there is some, it fell short of my expectations. That's probably the problem: my expec [...]

    28. First, I must say I am not a fan of Hollywood. I really don't watch televisionst never watch movies and don't have alot of respect for the Hollywood "elitists". There are a few exceptions, though, and Betty White is def. in that coveted category. This book was written the exact way that BW is perceivedcredibly warm and down to Earth. I behaved the first day and read the "allotted" number of pages, even though it sucked me in right away. Today, though, all bets were off and I read it in a an hour [...]
