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.

    "Loved it!"

    Pure Billy Crystal. I would love to see his one man show live but listening to him narrate his book is pretty darn close. Very enjoyable.

    Mr. Crystal is a fantastic story teller; he recounts his life in his unique voice for the pleasure of his readers. I laughed hard; I mean really hard (I imagine that my fellow drivers in other cars were somewhat nervous driving around me during this read)! But weaved into the book were also poignant, bittersweet stories of loss and disappointment.

    I wholeheartedly recommend this book!

    "Hang in there"

    The first couple chapters were old man fart humor and I was afraid I'd made a bad choice, but then it turns more memoir, less stand-up (still funny, because it's Billy Crystal after all) and it gets so much better. Poignant, interesting, touching stories from his life. It continues to get better and better right to the end. Hang in there through the rocky start and the last half is worth it.

    "Awesome Bio!!"

    One of the best autobiographies I have read in a long time.
    Billy Crystal reads this himself. The man is a comic genius. And what a good soul. Married 40+ years and continues to adore his wife.

    Loved this book. My husband and I are both 65 and could relate. We love laughing at ourselves and saw bits of us in several chapters.
