In the tradition of What Would Dolly Do? or The Gospel According to Coco Chanel comes this spirited homage to Betty White that captures her unique humor, timeless wisdom, and impish irreverence that's made her one of America's longest lasting and most beloved stars.
If there's one thing the nation can agree on--we all love Betty White! An unparalleled American icon, she started show business in 1939 in radio, was a pioneer in the early days of TV, and her career has spanned more than eight decades with appearances on countless sitcoms, game shows, and talk shows, including iconic comedy hits (The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls). Her accolades over the years include two Emmy nominations, a Grammy, and induction into the Television Academy Hall of Fame, while having her best decade yet as a nonagenarian: becoming the oldest person to host SNL, starring in a Super Bowl ad, and winning praise with her popular supporting role in Hot in Cleveland. Through it all, her "don't take yourself too seriously" attitude appeals to legions of fans, spanning all generations.
How to Be Golden will recount her engaging life story while weaving in her words of wisdom and insight about love, friendship, work, family, sex, acting, aging, beauty, and more.
