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.

    "mildly offensive, but mostly just not funny."

    it's billy crystal - i expected funny. apparently, the alliance of 'funny' and 'billy crystal' is a creation of good copywriters. it turns out that billy crystal, at least to the extent demonstrated by this book, is not a good copywriter. who knew?

    "No complaints"

    Billy Crystal is a consummate artist, and the "live bits" are the best part. He is entertaining to listen to. I just wish there was more here. Some of the stories are great, although some of the opening about grandkids etc was a little precious without being personal. I wanted to know more about his father, and his relationship with some of the early Jazz greats. Oh well. There's a lot of humble bragging (lots of famous close personal friends) which got on my nerves after awhile. But I liked it, and I think you will too. It's got enough gold amidst the rubble.

    "Inspiring and down to earth story!"

    Billy Crystal's story is brilliantly narrated by him, giving it a wonderful authenticity that one wouldn't get from simply reading the paperback. His tale of his everyday life challenges and growing older are realistic and relatable. This is an inspiring story that shows how one can live a good and meaningful life. I would recommend.

    "Funny and Moving"

    The narration by Billy Crystal is outstanding. This is a combination of his life story as well as his feelings about aging. It was funny and moving, as he shares his emotions about family and death. Only Billy can make someone laugh as he is talking about a somber subject. Well done and interesting!

    "Best book I heard in a long time"
    If you could sum up Still Foolin' 'Em in three words, what would they be?

    Could not stop listening


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

    When he talked about keeping the horse from City Slickers and his meeting with Mickey Mantel for the first time.


    What about Billy Crystal’s performance did you like?

    The performance was easy to listen to and showed a lot of emotion.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When he talked about the love he had for his family, his wife and his mother.


    Any additional comments?

    I do not usually write reviews but I had to with this book. I recommend it to anyone. Great book and narration. I could not stop listening. The book is easy to listen to and entertaining. May times I had to stop the narration because I was laughing so hard. It also has very personal moments that are easy to relate with.
