    Billy Crystal is 65, and he's not happy about it. With his trademark wit and heart, he outlines the absurdities and challenges that come with growing old, from insomnia to memory loss to leaving dinners with half your meal on your shirt. In humorous chapters like ""Buying the Plot"" and ""Nodding Off,"" Crystal not only catalogues his physical gripes, but offers a road map to his 77 million fellow baby boomers who are arriving at this milestone age with him. He also looks back at the most powerful and memorable moments of his long and storied life, from entertaining his relatives as a kid in Long Beach, Long Island, and his years doing stand-up in the Village, up through his legendary stint at Saturday Night Live, When Harry Met Sally, and his long run as host of the Academy Awards. Listeners get a front-row seat to his one-day career with the New York Yankees (he was the first player to ever ""test positive for Maalox""), his love affair with Sophia Loren, and his enduring friendships with several of his idols, including Mickey Mantle and Muhammad Ali. He lends a light touch to more serious topics like religion (""the aging friends I know have turned to the Holy Trinity: Advil, bourbon, and Prozac""); grandparenting; and, of course, dentistry. As wise and poignant as they are funny, Crystal's reflections are an unforgettable look at an extraordinary life well lived.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Still Foolin' 'Em?

    seems way too many to list just one, I guess I will say his recollection of raising his children.


    What does Billy Crystal bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the personal touch, I really think one would seriously miss out if they simply read this book, just incredible


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    yes and yes! and laughed again and cried again, and laughed again, and cried again, just THE BEST!!


    Any additional comments?

    I just can't say enough about this book, my only regret is that its finished, I just wish he had vol.2.
