"If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won't)" by Betty White

Starring in Hot in Cleveland, hosting SNL, stealing the scene in a Snickers Commercial - who isn't loving Betty White these days? Whether you are a fan of hers from back in the day onThe Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls (I still love watching the re-runs) or know her from her more recent appearances, you can't help but be in love with Betty White. She's witty, smart, kind and always current. At the age of 89 she is still charming people of all ages.

If You Ask Me (And Of Course You Won't) is Betty White's fifth book and is a sweet, humble and thankful look at her life and the wisdom it has given her in the last couple of decades. As you read this book you will feel as though Betty is sitting next to you on the couch sharing all the little gems and insights she has about life.

The book is divided into short sections on different topics such as love, her career, animals and aging. Each is full of insight and humour, and is written in such a personal and warm manner that you won't want to put it down. I certainly didn't and I ended up reading the book in one sitting. The book is also full of photos, both of Betty's private and public life which, if it was possible, make her even more endearing.

This is a wonderful book and would make the perfect summer read. Fix yourself a cool drink, grab a seat somewhere outside in the shade and sit back and enjoy this gem. Then tell all of your friends to do the same. You'll probably want to pick up The Golden Girls on dvd afterward too.


  1. It was only a few years ago that I started to pay attention to Betty White apart from Golden Girls. She seems very likable. I don't think I will read the book but I'm going to check out a few reviews to try and get the main points.


  2. Sounds great! This is one busy lady who never ceases to amaze me with her energy and humour.
