Publisher's Summary

Audie Award - Audiobook of the Year, 2014

Audie Award Winner, Narration by the Author or Authors, 2014

Audie Award Winner, Humor, 2014

Nominated for a 2014 Grammy in the Spoken Word category!

Hilarious and heartfelt observations on aging from one of America's favorite comedians, now that he's 65, and a look back at a remarkable career.

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.

Still Foolin' 'Em includes a portion recorded in front of a live studio audience.

    "Funny, witty and very well dine except...."

    this was a fantastic book and it was produced wonderfully. Having Billy narrate was like having him sitting in the passenger seat while I was driving. This man has led a fantastic life and the worldis much better for him. I would give this book an A Plus instead of an A, except I am a Chicago Cubs fan, and Billy cracked a joke on the Cubs! Just kidding Billy! if you read this review, I can guarantee that the Cubs are going to win the World Series this year just to make up for that joke! Maybe it will be against the Yankees! Hoy!

    "The Best!"
    Where does Still Foolin' 'Em rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have always been a big fan of Billy Crystal, but after listening to this book- I'm in love! It's funny, poignant and reflective. He chronicles his life and career and allows the reader an inside look into his family, behind the scenes of his movies/award presentations and his touching views on life and death. I will listen to this one again!

    This book is a lot of fun. Billy is sentimental, sweet, loving, at times quite crude, and, of course, very funny. Enjoy!

    "who is better than Billy?"

    I'm 32 years old but I feel like I always relate to his humor. A great book. He made me laugh and made me think about life in ways I hadn't in a while. Never disappointing.

    "I just laughed and laughed"

    I love biographies but this one is hours of Billy Crystal telling stories of his life, so it's just like his stand up. I'm going to have to listen again and again.

    "If you love Billy Crystal, you'll love this book"

    I grew up listening to Billy Crystal. He has long been one of my favorite comedians, and to this day, I can still recite almost his entire Mahvelous album by heart. His sentimental streak is a favorite of mine, because I absolutely share it. If you have always been a fan of his, you will really love this. He comes across exactly as you would expect – funny, decent, and just plain nice. I think there may be no famous person I'd rather meet.

    Outstanding book and performance. A must read/listen for any parent or grandparent looking for validation - and who better to tell us but one of America's greatest comedians.

    "Foul Language"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I HATE FOUL language IN THE FIRST 5 MINUTES. It makes the book very unpleasant to listen.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Billy Crystal again?

    Not now.

    Story
    "Billy, you never fail us!"
    If you could sum up Still Foolin' 'Em in three words, what would they be?

    Honest Funny Family


    What other book might you compare Still Foolin' 'Em to, and why?

    Any autobiography that is honest, funny, heartwarming, humble and entertaining.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Oo, ermmm, tricky one that! His early days with Janice? All encounters with Mohammed Ali? They will do for starters :)


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

    When he talks about his wife. He so clearly adores every bone of her.


    Any additional comments?

    Billy, I wish that your life had been 1000 years already as I could listen to your exploits, adventures, thoughts and anecdotes for a very long time before I got even close to putting on a kettle.

    Nothing compares to this, he is genius...

    When Billy describes the worst part about death


    Any additional comments?

    An utterly captivating and thoroughly entertaining performance, made all that funnier by Billy himself delivering much of it in front of a live audience - absolute comedy gold, with a very personal and heart-warming feel to it. Loved it!

    "Loved it. Billy is funny and human"
    If you could sum up Still Foolin' 'Em in three words, what would they be?

    Billy manages to be charming, funny and down to earth without a trace of arrogance. He tells his story with humour and in a way I could totally relate to. His voice is such a pleasure to listen to and I just loved this book.


    Which character – as performed by Billy Crystal – was your favourite?

    I have always been a Billy Crystal fan, but this book made his so much more real. It felt like I was listening to an old and dear friend.


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

    Billy's recounting of his daughters and in particular, the eldest one's wedding really touched me. I felt like it could have been our home, our daughters.

    What did you like best about this story?

    Light hearted look at life


    What about Billy Crystal’s performance did you like?

    It feels a very personal reading, like a good friend talking to you in your living room. He is a good story teller, and I didn't realise until now what a good mimic he is too. A very entertaining listen, especially for those of us who are in our fifties - he outlines all those things we have to look forward to :)))

    Funny, witty, insightful with fascinating peeks into Billy Crystal's personal life and private moments with family and friends. I found myself smiling throughout the book and even laughing out loud in many places. I hope Billy Crystal continues to entertain us in his inimitable way for a few more decades to come.

    Story
    "Amusing but better for an American audience"

    The bonus in this book is that some sections are live in front of an audience - which adds vitality. The best sections are about Billy's personal life and are much more heartfelt. There are short sections where Billy 'performs' in the voices of people he is know for impersonating - those I found less engaging. As an English reader, the sections on baseball and sports were not of so much interest to me - but that's a subjective thing - and is not meant as a criticism - just a note for other UK readers. An amusing read with varied sections that will appeal to different groups of people.

    What made the experience of listening to Still Foolin' 'Em the most enjoyable?

    Billy reading the story.


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

    Just how grounded he is, one wife, one house


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

    His unique voice


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, laughed so many times, only half way through and already feeling sad because it will end.
