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.

    "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.

    "Not Anymore"

    Yes, he's older. Aren't we all. Too bad he's replaced the funny with the common/vulgar. Just not funny anymore.

    Story
    "In a word - HILARIOUS! "

    America's best comedian and most beloved household name offers a very interesting glimpse into a very interesting life. At times you are laughing out loud while at others your heart is feeling his pain. In short, Billy reminds the reader that life is amazing, oh and to keep your keys in one place.

    Story
    "Best audiobook so far...!"
    If you could sum up Still Foolin' 'Em in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, touching, educative!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like Billy's insights on a number of things he experienced and it the whole experience was magnetizing for my wife and myself listening to this audiobook. We laughed and cried with him and it was such a beautiful time listening that I put this book right up to No.1 spot for me.


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

    Yes. We listen to our books in the car and with this one we found ourselves just listening for some time after we arrived in our destination.


    Any additional comments?

    Great guy, great life he lived and lives and it is as if we made a new friend through this experience!
