I highly recommend listening to this as an audiobook: Betty White reads it herself, and it feels like she's talking to you about her life. She seems to like just about everybody, and while she gets a bit gossipy she is never ever mean. I learned some things about her life, but mostly I just enjoyed hearing her tell stories.

I did tear up some (especially when she talked about her husband), but I also giggled at parts; and I came away thinking Betty White is one of those rare treasures of the human race who became famous and really deserves all of the goodwill she gets for it.

An interesting listen; she's a great narrator and her story is definitely interesting although she still holds the listener at arms length a bit. She definitely values her privacy.

White meticulously detailed her early life, especially in her radio and early television jobs, to the point of wanting to set your hair on fire. She reminisced vaguely about MTM & The Golden Girls - what I guess the majority of her readers might be interested in. She handled her personal life delicately. For a memoir, the book didn't keep my interest as most do.… (more)

I totally LOVED this book!! Reading it was like sitting down with an old friend and hearing them tell their story. The book is a comfortable read and very enjoyable. I could read this one again. I feel like I have a better insight into Betty's life and into the television business itself. The books talks about her ups and downs and everything in between. Definitely reccomend this to anyone who is a fan.… (more)

Here We Go Again is the autobiography by Betty White covering her TV career from 1949-1995. The copy I have was revised in 2010 to include an additional introduction that briefly catches the reader up on events that have happened between the original publication and 2010 as well as a color photo section. The lady has had quite the career and is still going strong! Betty has pretty much done it all in the industry: sitcoms, talk shows, game shows, variety shows, stage acting, musicals, commercials and even several films. The book was an absolutely charming retelling of her career. Betty's love for work, animals and life in general really comes through and the book maintains that upbeat, cheerful tone throughout. We're also treated to a brief history of television as her career started just as TV was taking off. Things were definitely different back then. This was an enjoyable read and a great book to start the new year with.… (more)
