Publisher Comments:

America's sweetheart, impassioned lifelong animal welfare advocate, and New York Times bestselling author Betty White shares intimate, funny, and enlightening stories about her very best friends in the world…

All her life, Betty White has had a menagerie of pets, many of them rescued, and has donated countless hours and resources to animal welfare. Animals are her passion, and that passion extends to zoos and their importance for the conservation of species and for offering humans the ability to witness the grandeur and variety of these magnificent animals from around the world.

Betty & Friends is a love letter to those zoos, to their dedicated workers, and especially to the animals in them—from Gita the elephant, whom Betty used to take for walks; to Bruno the orangutan, who flaunts his affections for Betty; to Jacob the boa, who loves a good hug. Gaining access to this majestic world through Betty’s eyes and her inimitable words is a beautiful thing indeed for animal lovers and Betty White lovers of all ages.

INCLUDES GORGEOUS FULL-COLOR PHOTOGRAPHS

Synopsis:

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.

I'm not one to read memoir's, but as a 30 year old who grew up watching Betty White on the Golden Girls and re-runs of the Mary Tyler Moore Show, I was intrigued. I read this book in a day (or hours). It's sweet, funny, respectful, and very honest. You're perspective may be challenged after scouring the pages of Betty White's wit and amazing heart!

If you pick up this book thinking you're going to get an insider's view of celebrity and all that goes with it, you might end up disappointed. What Betty gives here is a folksy 'woman next door,' grandmotherly "genuine, from the heart') book about life in general and yes her life in particular and all that it entails. With her decades of experience in TV and Movies it is amazing that Betty has managed to retain her charm and remain a warm, caring human being.

The endearing quality of this book is that Betty manages to infuse humor into every situation.
