Betty White: 100 Remarkable Moments in an Extraordinary Life (2nd Edition) is a photography-rich retrospective of the most significant events and achievements of one of America’s most loved and endearing stars.
A visual salute to the First Lady of Television, the book spans her more than 80 years as a performer and star of such legendary series as The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Golden Girls.
Packed with photographs from her decades in comedy as well as a contestant on game shows including What’s My Line?, Password, To Tell the Truth, and Match Game, and interviews with friends and colleagues, such as Carol Burnett and Candice Bergen, the book chronicles 100 highlights from the acting life and passions that have defined an entertainment career like no other.
White’s pioneering legacy extends back to the earliest days of TV in the 1950s, when she served as both producer and star of the sitcom Life with Elizabeth during an era that predated glass ceilings.
The volume also vividly illustrates the beloved White’s lifelong love for animals as well as the masterful comic versatility she displayed even as she closed in on the century mark.
Betty White passed away on 31 December 2021, at just 17 days shy of what would have been her 100th birthday. This retrospective tribute to the trailblazing icon will help us hold Betty White, and all the good she stood for, forever in our memories.
