    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.

    If you could sum up Still Foolin' 'Em in three words, what would they be?

    fun biographical background


    Which scene was your favorite?

    discussion of how it feels as a couple to consider burial plots


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Billy's relationship with his family - I love to hear a family man express how it feels to cherish a wife, children and grand children


    Any additional comments?

    I loved hearing how Mr. Crystal's career developed. I appreciate the choices he made over the years that had much less to do with career and much more to do with family.

    Story
    (6347)

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Witness to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version


    What about Julia Whelan’s performance did you like?

    I loved her ability to change her voice for the different characters. She can pull off southern without making it insulting to the southerner.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Possibly a different reader


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Jodi picoult


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jeffrey Kafer?

    I don't know but someone who didn't pause after every sentence as if it were the news


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Area 51: The Reply?

    I couldnt get into it


    Any additional comments?

    I really wish I could have listened to this. I think this one should not have been an audible one for me.
