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.

Charmed

The story of a Charmed Life told by the talented and likeable man who lived it. One of the best audiobooks I've listened to.

Husband and I read it in one day. Excellent road trip material. He’s an American classic! Laughed and cried.

Cheap laughs

I got bored after 2 chapters filled with jokes about aging genitalia, problems urinating, colonoscopies, and failure to launch--so to speak--when masturbating. I am not a prude by any means but that sort of humor just isn't funny. It's like making fart jokes. I had to stop listening after 2 chapters.

A great time with Billy!

A very enjoyable book and moments of great fun with Billy Crystal. My husband and I would listen to small nuggets each time we went out in the car and enjoyed it every time. Some laugh out loud moments. Billy provided some very interesting behind the scenes stories of movies and other events in his life. Great narration.

This is a wonderful story that Billy Crystal wrote. The fact that it's about his life and this makes it very special. He could make you cry and make you laugh.
Anyone that likes Billy Crystal or anyone in their mid life should listen to this book

Somewhat disappointing,

I really like Billy Crystal, but the book didn't do it for me. Maybe I was expecting too much. Slow moving, but some laughs.

Didn't know about Billy Crystal

But found this after Martin Short mentions him in his book. This is a great listen. It goes from standup to behind the scenes Hollywood and show business stories to personal recounts of his life. Really enjoyable and makes me want more from him, to see his show live.
