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.

    "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!

    "Entertaining, moving, uplifting."

    Listened to it twice on a raw. Fantastic audiobook! Really well put and the performance is just first class.

    Parts of the audiobook are read with live audience. Made me smile, laugh out loud and cry a couple of times. I've already recommnded it to several friends of mine.

    "I wish he had left the politics at home"

    I adore Billy Crystal. This was wonderful, overall. I wish he didn't assume we are all Democrats. Other than that, it was lovely and charming. I would recommended it to any fan of his.
