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.

Best audiobook so far...!

If you could sum up Still Foolin' 'Em in three words, what would they be?

Funny, touching, educative!

What did you like best about this story?

I like Billy's insights on a number of things he experienced and it the whole experience was magnetizing for my wife and myself listening to this audiobook. We laughed and cried with him and it was such a beautiful time listening that I put this book right up to No.1 spot for me.

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

Yes. We listen to our books in the car and with this one we found ourselves just listening for some time after we arrived in our destination.

Any additional comments?

Great guy, great life he lived and lives and it is as if we made a new friend through this experience!

Short and sweet - if you enjoy Billy Crystal's humor - then get this book. You won't be disappointed. It's essentially an autobiography with Billy Crystal's brand of humor sprinkled throughout. A fun read/listen.

Wonderful life story

I don't ever say this but this was the best book I've listened to in years. There has not been a story that has made me think more about life... Where I've been, where I'm going, those who are close to me. What a fantastic life and story. Thank you Billy!
