"America loves Betty White! From her early days in television with her first show "Life with Elizabeth," to "Password," through her mischievous years as Sue Ann Nivens on "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," and now as Rose on the delightful series "The Golden Girls," she had been loved and lauded. Now, at last, in this wonderful new book, we meet the real Betty White, up close and personal. Gathered here are Betty's wit and wisdom, her observations and intuitions. In these pages, she looks forward and back, and shares all that she sees. Somehow, Betty White has learned to take all that life can give, and has found the best in every smallest part. She recounts for us stories and adventures (and misadventures, too!) shared with many of her favorite friends. We read her warm and open thoughts about sex, grief, hope, friendship, and aging, and hear her familiar voice, as she touches upon topics like enthusiasm, people watching, imagination, saving things, and believe it or not, things she hates! This book is a true gem. In these pages we meet the woman behind the endearing celebrity-and discover that they are one and the same. For years audiences have identified and been attracted to that singular spark of energy and enthusiasm, that "something" that Betty White brings to every role and infuses into each of her marvelous characters. Now, that unique quality provides inspiration for many more people, as readers laugh, cry, and sigh right along with her."--Jacket.
