Format: Hardcover
"Still Foolin' 'Em" by Billy Crystal isn't a memoir book, in commonly understood sense of book that only speaks about someone's life.
Instead, the author presented us with the 21 short stories that start with celebration party of his 65th birthday.

Crystal who is both known as great comedian but also, at least in my opinion, as best Oscar host with his book tried and managed to laugh the reader even with an unusual topic, humiliation that people begin to experience when they're becoming old.

He always managed to laugh us, most of the time with only one short sentence.
Starting with his first story, in a situation when in same time when his birthday party is taking place his grandchild will be born, Billy completely seriously said "...but you know kids, they never listen" this sentence will immediately bring a smile to your face.

Billy Crystal had lead interesting and happy life in movie business but also together with his family, and now when he's 65 he says that is still happy "...having only one wife and house, real name and nose and almost all of his teeth."

His stories covered time from his twenties when he was a teacher to these days, managing to tell reader lots of interesting anecdotes about the movies (the good one was about When Harry Met Sally) and events in which he was participating, including Oscar shows.

His literary style is a mix of movie screenplay, stand-up comedy with several sentimental overtones when he speaks about his youth.
But unlike in most other memoirs it seem that he doesn't have any regrets, but still enjoys the fullest in his life and rich memories.

This is a book that reads more like essays by Billy Crystal than a memoir. From his childhood to stand-up years, how some of his opinions (including political ones) have changed over the years, his successful decades-long marriage which is harder to find in Hollywood than to find matching socks when you're in hurry, some of his movies and Oscar preparations he talks about a few chapters and events of his life in the usual Billy Crystal way. You will learn some interesting and surprising stories for the first time. Like the one about Orson Welles.

If anybody worries a young person might not enjoy the book because it was advertised like "Billy Crystal is turning 65, and he's not happy about it," you are wrong. I'm 29-years-old and had fun from the cover to the end. I would definitely recommend to everyone who likes Billy Crystal and/or his humor.

Oh and, extra kudos for making the font size big. As someone who spends hours on a computer all day, it was a good change to not have my eyes hurt when I read a book for over an hour at one sitting.

I knew I would not be "fooled" by reading this book. I have always liked Billy and even went to see him once. I took this book on a cruise with me and found myself laughing so loud at times people were giving me "looks". It is just that kind of reading. Thanks Billy for not letting me down!

The first few pages of this book are quite hilarious. It then goes into sort of neutral as Billy tells of his climb to fame. The language in parts is quite strong. None the less it is a good read as we hear of his contributions to films like When Harry Met Sally. Perhaps not to everyone's taste but if you like Jewish Humour and I do it is well worth it.

I found Billy Crystal’s book boring. Perhaps because I am European and don’t know much about baseball so didn’t appreciate the amount of stories dedicated to the game. I did of course know of Joe DiMaggio and was aghast as just how rude he was. Poor Marilyn Monroe being married to such a self-centered brute. The laughs in the book were few. Again maybe because I am not tuned in to American humour. Towards the end of the book, I thought Billy tended to pontificate about parenthood, ageing and dying. Not brill when you are unable to sleep and reading this book at around three in the morning. Like him but didn’t like his book.

I have always enjoyed seeing Billy Crystal but here in the UK we are rather limited to his films and when we see him host the Oscars.So this gives us a chance to really get to know him.As someone from the same religion and same age I find that there are some faint similarities in our upbringing.He is very funny at times.However as the book goes on he does tend to become a bit morbid.Unfortunately having recently had a major bereavement it wasn't really what I wanted to read about.However that is just personal to me and the rest of the book is very entertaining.
