“Billy Crystal’s new memoir is everything you’d expect from this acclaimed actor, writer, producer, film director and world-class comedian. Though the book is a great read, this audio version, performed by Crystal himself, is even better. His timing is perfect, he laughs, ad-libs a little and even chokes up as he talks about how much his wife of 43 years means to him…But be careful! Listening while driving, treading on a treadmill or stirring up a stir-fry could be hazardous to life and limb – this is unredacted, laugh-out-loud humor, Billy Crystal at his bravura best.” – BookPage
“At 65, Billy Crystal is a master of comic timing, as he demonstrates during his narration of Still Foolin’ ‘Em. A fine actor and nine-time Oscar host, Crystal knows exactly how to deliver his artful blend of touching memoir and rueful riffs on the indignities of aging. Several chapters were recorded before a live audience, giving him the opportunity to exchange banter and charm a crowd – as he no doubt will many listeners…In both modes, however, he proves himself accomplished, nuanced, and – best of all – very funny.” – AudioFile Magazine
“As is the case with many comedians’ memoirs, hearing Crystal’s wisecracks about aging in Hollywood is better than reading them.” – Entertainment Weekly
“If you have to choose between the print and audio editions of Billy Crystal’s memoir, know this: if the book is funny, the audiobook is drive-off-the-road hilarious.” – Publishers Weekly Starred Review
“And if you like the book, you’ll love the audio. Seven chapters were recorded live by Crystal at an NYU fundraiser. Not many books come with their own laugh tracks.” – USA Today
“The audiobook is read by Crystal himself, and feels like listening to a hilarious friend’s stories.” – Ladies’ Home Journal
