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.

    "Billy Chrystal's book is funny and heart warming"
    Where does Still Foolin' 'Em rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I just started listening to books recently. I enjoyed Billy Crystal narrating his story.


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

    No, a few nights.

    Story
    "Tears and laughters all bundled"

    I finished listening in record time. Billy's narrative kept me wanting to listen more he's funny and sentimental. I have cried while driving and laughed out hard while on subway. His story has prepared me for life ahead.
    I would recommend this to anyone who's wanting a good read with aspirational elements.
    However the ending has kinda left me pondering... The story is just too perfect and the family billy has is simply too good. What about problems and huddles in life??
