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.

    Hearing about Billy's family

    I really enjoyed how he read a few chapters through his stand up routine.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me laugh and cry. The way billy describes his relationship with his wife seems so uncanny for an actor. I sure hope it's true!

    Story
    "Do not die before reading this"
    Where does Still Foolin' 'Em rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Among biographies, this has inspired me more than any other in my life.


    What other book might you compare Still Foolin' 'Em to and why?

    On the scale of important biographies, compare it to Leonard Bernstein's or Sargent Shriver's.


    What about Billy Crystal’s performance did you like?

    Hey, it's Billy Crystal. Just say thank you.


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

    Inspiring.


    Any additional comments?

    Get the Audible version of this book right now. Of course it is funny. It's Billy Crystal! More importantly, it's the most inspiring biography I've ever read. He is 65. I am 68. I enter my next part of life right now with the Billy-inspired mantra: I have yet to create and perform my best work.

    Folks, you will laugh and cry throughout the book. If you lived in the 20th century, you will visit favorite people, places and events. You learn about idols from Mohammad Ali and Joe DiMaggio to Johnny Carson and Sophia Loren. You re-learn that it takes character and discipline to be great. Nobody is born great.

    I don't want to spoil it for you. There are many reasons to buy the audio version...to begin with, Billy's imitations of Ali and Cossell.

    "Extremely funny and well done."

    Hilarious autobiography. Very well performed with much emotion and humor. I have always
    liked Billy Crystal but love him now after hearing this book. Easy to listen to a little at a time
    because it is a series of stories told through out his life. Highly recommended.

    What made the experience of listening to Still Foolin' 'Em the most enjoyable?

    Billy Crystal is one of the best story tellers there is. I particularly enjoyed that some chapters were performed before a live audience. And I found from my wife that you can jump in at anytime and find it enjoyable.

    Story
    "Crystal Clear, Billy is a Gem"
    If you could sum up Still Foolin' 'Em in three words, what would they be?

    Endearing. Funny. Friendly.


    What other book might you compare Still Foolin' 'Em to and why?

    Jane Lynch's Happy Accidents. The successes and triumphs are presented as information, not gloats. The stories are honest, interesting, and loveable.


    Which character – as performed by Billy Crystal – was your favorite?

    N/A - But I really enjoyed learning about the characters he created with his children.


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

    Get to know him all over again...

    Story
    "Laugh out loud funny & listened TWICE..."
    What made the experience of listening to Still Foolin' 'Em the most enjoyable?

    Being like one long comedy sketch called his life, Billy Crystal keeps you laughing and listening for hours and leaves you wanting more! I laughed out loud all the way through and now listening for the 2nd time and planning on repeat performances every now and then when I need a good laugh--or just a reminder to enjoy the ride. The 8+ hours flew by like no time at all. Get this great audio and laugh your way through it too. This will be great for the morning or evening commute or to make a long trip fly by!


    What does Billy Crystal bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Billy delivered several chapters in front of a live audience and that gave it a "kick".


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

    When he talked about his relationship with his wife and daughters...it was beautiful and heartwarming.

    "Amazing Amazing Amazing"
    What made the experience of listening to Still Foolin' 'Em the most enjoyable?

    Billy Crystal's ability to make me laugh and cry within a single chapter. He's funny and witty, but then takes you by surprise when he speaks so poetically about experiences in his life


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

    When he spoke about his wife. There's so much love in his life and it's refreshing to see that a big celebrity like him has stayed with the same woman he met before he became famous for so long


    What about Billy Crystal’s performance did you like?

    The voices! He brought to life everyone he spoke about because he impersonated them
