Still Foolin' 'Em: Where I've Been, Where I'm Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys | [Billy Crystal]

Still Foolin' 'Em: Where I've Been, Where I'm Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys

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.

    "Want to laugh and smile?!!!!"

    Billy Crystal narrates this book. I listened as I walked the dog each day and bent over laughing hysterically. Thank you, Billy. I have listened to it 3 times because it make me laugh. It is an autobiographical book with, humor, sensitivity, and educational information about baseball and acting. Billy is a kind man with family values. Super book for baby boomer, for sure.

    "Billy Crystal is a class act"

    Really fun to listen to. Billy Crystal has a million stories. I especially loved how his relationship with Muhammad Ali developed over the years and his many tales of getting parts, not getting parts and his love for his big Jewish family. Lovely book, well read!

    "Target audience age: 40-70"
    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I liked what he said about making an effort to always celebrate your birthday. "Allow the people you love a chance to show you that they do love you. We only get to do this once."


    Any additional comments?

    It was pretty much what you would expect a Billy Crystal autobio to be. I'm a 29 year old woman, and I definitely didn't feel like I was his target audience when he spent a few chapters giving advice on how to be a good grandpa LOL

    "Best autobiography yet"

    I laughed, I cried, I was totally captivated by this book. While Billy is funny 90% of the time he deep moments were well written and heart felt. I could never imagine just reading this as his voice added so much more to the story.

    "Fantastic Audiobook!!"

    Personal, human, and well phrased. One of the Best books I've read in the last few years. No subject (worthwhile ) left untouched , and nothing is off-limits.
