Overview

America's queen of television shares her fascinating life story!

"Here is Betty White — a woman who has been on television forever!" is generally how Betty White is introduced. And quite accurately, too, since she first appeared in 1949 when both she and television were rank beginners.

Since then, she has had one of the most amazing careers in TV, winning five Emmy awards, creating such unforgettable characters as Sue Ann Nivens and Rose Nylund, and appearing in a host of television classics from 1952's Life with Elizabeth to The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls.

Here We Go Again gives an overview of television's golden era, packed full of wonderful anecdotes about the many famous personalities with whom Betty has worked. It also gives a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at television over five decades, from her first show, Hollywood on Television which ran live five and a half hours a day six days a week (33 hours per week!), to Betty's current television work. In addition, she talks about her personal life — how her hectic career caused strain in her relationships and how she finally found happiness with her third husband, the late talk show host Allen Ludden.

As warm and funny as its author, Here We Go Again will thrill her many fans and delight all of those who are interested in the history of America's most popular form of entertainment.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
At 89, actress White is enjoying a resurgence in popularity unheard of for most women in her profession. In this anecdote-laden 1996 memoir available for the first time on audio, she tracks her long career in television, from Hollywood on Television to The Golden Girls, also reflecting on her marriage to game-show host Allen Ludden and her charity work. Though this abridged-only audio is not as detailed as many might hope, White's growing fan base is sure to enjoy it, especially as read by the actress, whose timing is impeccable. Recommended for public libraries. [An "entertaining and insightful autobiography," read the review of the Scribner hc, LJ 8/95; White's next memoir, If You Ask Me, will publish in May 2011.—Ed.]—Phillip Oliver, Univ. of North Alabama Lib., Florence

This is a fantastically entertaining look into the life and career of, national treasure, Betty White. She is spicy, witty and lovable. Her story helps you understand what makes her tick. This is a quick, easy read with lots of photos and humor sprinkled throughout. Loved it!

Betty White takes you back to the beginning of the "new invention" called T.V. She begins, naturally, with one of the first T.V. programs which she was fortunate to be part of! She leads you through the progression of television and it is certainly an interesting trip. Also, she shares with you the highs and lows of her life behind the cameras. Loves and losses. When reading this book, you forget that this woman is an octagenarian. She has the sharp mind and wit that defies age. I love her even more after reading this.

An enjoyable read from beginning to end, Betty White: Here We Go Again chronicles the history of television through the lens of a the actress' (mostly) successful career in television. Featuring an updated introduction and epilogue from White in 2010, this is a unique and interesting read. I personally would have preferred more detail about her years on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls (the book was originally written a few years after the end of the Golden Girls/Golden Palace); however, this is a minor qualm. Any Golden Girls (or classic TV, really) fan will enjoy this memoir!
