A memoir of Betty White's first five decades on television—as irreverent and irresistible as the beloved actress herself.
Betty White first appeared on television in 1949 and has gone on to have one of the most amazing careers in TV history, starring in shows such as Life with Elizabeth, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and The Golden Girls, among many others. She is one of the hardest-working actresses of any era, and her sense of humor and perennial optimism have seen her through half a century of industry changes and delighted millions of fans.
Now, during Betty’s sixty-first year on screen, a year in which she has enjoyed a huge resurgence of popularity, her 1995 memoir makes a comeback too. Here We Go Again is a behind-the-scenes look at Betty’s career from her start on radio to her first show, Hollywood on Television, to several iterations of The Betty White Show and much, much more. Packed with wonderful anecdotes about famous personalities and friendships, stories of Betty’s off-screen life, and the comedienne’s trademark humor, this deliciously entertaining book will give readers an entrée into Betty’s fascinating life, confirming yet again why we can’t get enough of this funny lady.
Her late husband, Allen Ludden, once remarked that White had been one of the pioneers in silent television. That is just barely an exaggeration, because she got her start in Hollywood on Television in 1949 and has not been off the tube for any length of time for the past 46 years. Best known for her roles as Sue Ann on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and as the terminally naive Rose on The Golden Girls, she has had four Betty White Shows, starting in 1950, as well as a show close to her animal-lover's heart, The Pet Set. She also played minor, recurring characters on The Carol Burnett Show and its spin-off, Mama's Family, and announced the Rose Bowl parade for 20 years. Additionally, she was a frequent guest of Jack Paar and Johnny Carson and appeared on innumerable game shows. She knows everyone in the business, although her affection for them one and all, while perhaps real, cloys after a time. This behind-the-scenes look at television since the late 1940s, with its dozens of photos, should delight fans.

Here we go again - Betty White
Great read for any Betty White fan that wants to know about how she did it. I really enjoyed it.
Here SHE goes again!
I don't think there has ever been, or will ever be a more adorable, endearing, wonderful, real, and talented actress on this (or any other) planet.
Like so many others, I simply adore her and inhale everything she does. I can't say enough about her book. I enjoyed reading every wonderful story. I laughed at her anecdotes and triumphs, and I cried for her losses.
May she reign forever as the Queen of Comedy!
I know she will for me!
Now I'm on to her newest book, "If You Ask Me...." Can't wait.
I love you, Betty White!
