It wasn't particularly funny...I think my expectations really kept me from fully enjoying the book the way it was meant to be enjoyed.

Synopsis

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.

A quick, pleasant read from an author whose writing voice is surprisingly reminiscent of her speaking voice.
