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.

    "Heartfelt Memories of a Great Life"

    Even better than I expected. Made me fall in love with Billy and his talent all over again. Too bad he uses so many f-bombs as punctuation, but aside from that and a few more colorful awful words, the content is fun, wise, moving, inspiring, and suffused with love and gratitude for the life he has lived. Who know he knew so many baseball greats?!? I would listen again.

    "Awesome!!!"

    I never write reviews, but this once I feel compelled to. Billy Crystal is a gem, he's real, down to earth, honest and oh so funny!!! I laughed (& cried), as I finished the book I wanted to go back to the beginning & listen again!! First though I am going to go and see if he's done any other books on Audible - if so I'll be getting them all! (New Zealand listener)

    "The best"

    This is far and away the best celebrity autobiography I've read. The choice to do part of it for a live audience was brilliant, adding a stand up flavor to the book. He is having an amazing life and tells us the story in an entertaining and heartfelt manner.

    "failed attempt at comedy"

    The book tried too hard to be a comical autobiographical novel. The intermingled stand up comedy and reality fell flat.

    "Crystal is as funny as ever"

    I am a longtime fan of Billy Crystal's. I listened to his stand up album, "Mahvelous", over and over and over again, I never missed him on SNL and I saw "When Harry Met Sally" in the theatre 13 times! Once married I introduced my husband to his comedic genius by dragging him to see "700 Sundays". My husband was hooked.

    This book did not disappoint. It had all of the hilarious observations and impersonations you know and love. But also poignant (and really funny) reflections on each decade of his life. I related to so many of his stories, to his point of view on family and treasuring your memories, to how absurd life can be.

    Buy it, listen, laugh, cry and enjoy.

    "A Delight!"
    What did you love best about Still Foolin' 'Em?

    I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. I enjoy Billy Crystal, but the main reason I purchased it was because it looked like it focused on aging. Given that I am in my early fifties, I thought I could relate and might get a laugh or two (needed as menopause is a bitch!). What I did not expect, was all the other emotions that Billy would make me feel. I alternated between laughter and having a lump in my throat. I looked forward to my commute to work each day so that I could enjoy more of the stories!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Billy Crystal of course! It is an autobiography after all. I walked away thinking that he truly was a decent man who had his priorities in order despite his huge success.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    No question the the end of the book when he speaks of his wife and wanting to do it all over again. I had to remain in my car for a few minutes before heading into work in order to regain my composure.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, only because I enjoyed it so much I didn't want it to end!


    Any additional comments?

    Well done, Mr. Crystal.
