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.

    Story
    "This is absolute magic"

    What a way to listen to an autobiography - told by the author himself. And when the author is brilliant comedian Billy Crystal, I was hooked from the first few words. I actually laughed out loud at some of the narrative, fortunately I was listening at home.

    Billy, I have always loved your work; now I know a bit about behind the scenes I admire you even more.

    "Really Disappointing!!"

    Only funny in a few parts. Billy's humor is usually more spontaneous and less canned. Most of the funny lines I predicted before he said them. The undertones are more cynical than I expected from Billy's usually clever and silly humor. Seemed a little full of himself. :-(

    Story
    "Rehash, Recap, and interesting only to the author"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book was not for me but friends of Billy might associate themselves with it and enjoy it.


    What was most disappointing about Billy Crystal’s story?

    Don't get me wrong, I love Billy Crystal, but when I started to listen to the book it seem worn, cliche', and a rehash of his life. It was depressing instead of funny. The same old complaints when jokes are ok, but when woven into a "this is my life" story seemed cynical and sad.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Billy Crystal?

    Billy Crystal did a fine job of narration. I do not think anyone would or could be any better.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    I wish Billy Crystal had written about his life instead of scripted his life from old Jewish jokes. I was very interested and prepared to enjoy this book. Instead I had to escape from the noise and shut it down after I was half way through.

    "Wonderful life story"

    I don't ever say this but this was the best book I've listened to in years. There has not been a story that has made me think more about life... Where I've been, where I'm going, those who are close to me. What a fantastic life and story. Thank you Billy!

    "Towers above other Bio's"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, Billy Crystal has an enthralling story to tell. He has done so much and remains a humble man that is not afraid to spread credit to people who influenced him and helped him along the way. He also proves you can be a nice family man and succeed.


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

    His stories about Muhammad Ali.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Charmed Humbled


    Any additional comments?

    He is a true sportsman and appears to be very well grounded.

    Honest Funny Family

    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.

    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.

    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.
