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.

This book had me praying for traffic so I could listen more

I loved this book!! I felt like I was sitting across the table from this incredible, personable, hilarious, heartfelt storyteller the entire time. I listened to this book on my commute & found myself praying for traffic. Wonderful experience-- highly recommended

Wanted to like it!!!

I was TRULY excited when I bought this book to listen to it...couldn't
wait. Happened to be able to turn it on on a Friday evening when my
granddaughter had a bunch of her college friends over for an evening
of fun and relaxing. On came the Audio and we were ALL SHOCKED.
The "F" bomb dropped over and over. They were yelling my name to, "Turn it of!" and "WHAT IN THE WORLD ARE YOU LISTENING TOO?"
Needless to say, I turned it off, apologized, told them I had NO IDEA.
There are some of us left in the world who don't talk that way...don't
want to hear it...and SURE DON't want to pay for it.
Very disappointing. Really have enjoyed him in many movies and shows
over the years...writing a bio; not so much.
SORRY.

Not Anymore

Yes, he's older. Aren't we all. Too bad he's replaced the funny with the common/vulgar. Just not funny anymore.

In a word - HILARIOUS!

America's best comedian and most beloved household name offers a very interesting glimpse into a very interesting life. At times you are laughing out loud while at others your heart is feeling his pain. In short, Billy reminds the reader that life is amazing, oh and to keep your keys in one place.
