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.

Always been a fan and after having Billy himself read to me these great stories of his life, I am thankful and am even bigger fan now.

Very touching, but definitely could have left out the F.... Word. It took away from the material and just didn't work!

Mediocre. I didn't finish it. Some of the crude humor was insulting to healthy men who maintain their sexual vigor. Lay off the rich food and cigars, Billy.

One of the best. Billy makes you feel like and old friend having a conservation about life. As he would say “Marvelous!”

Don't let the one star fool you. I WANT to rate it ZERO OR LESS. He's too much of a comedic genius to stoop to such cheap, banal, profane, foul and trashy delivery. You disappoint and degrade yourself, Billy Crystal. You must really hate yourself so much that you need to sustain that self loathing through this sad, pitiful, pathetic demonstration of your worst side...of what is at the core of your being. Anyone can be an arse-hole. It would have only taken a little effort for you to not be one. I used to like BC. My previous esteem for him has been forever ruined. Hated the book. Hated that he doesn't realize he doesn't have to spew sewage to be funny. Got my money back. Don't waste yours.

This was my first audiobook and my first Billy Cystal book. I really enjoyed the experience and wanted the story to continue for a few more days!! My only small gripe is that there was too much "name dropping" for my liking. Looking forward to his next book.

I loved the way he wove the entire book together. He infused the threads of his stories from the beginning to end with a love of life, his fellow human beings, and his incredible resilience in the tough spots. His narration reflects his work ethic and drive to hone his skills throughout his life. He delivers here with an amazing performance possible. It's an inspiration.

Starts out good and becomes great as it goes along. Fascinating stories, great impressions, and great insight into his family relationships. There are touching moments and sad moments, so keep tissues nearby. I agree with another reviewer who said that it would be improved without all the F bombs. In fairness it was sometimes used in quoting someone else and was effective in telling you what kind of person they were. But many other throw-away uses as well.

Enjoyed Billy's lifetime experiences and views on aging very much. His blend of serious reflection on life and his ability to laugh at same are a marvellous and entertaining combination. He's the kind of guy you'd want to spend a day with. Pretty terrific to hear it all in his own words! G. Barker

The book was very entertaining. I enjoyed the non-live chapters more than the chapters read in front of a live audience. The overlay of funny stuff with real life stories was terrific. The fact that the man himself read it just made it that much better.
