Reviews

[A] wry look at aging. "The New York Times Book Review" "Still Foolin' Em" moves from one funny, strange and heartfelt moment to the next as smoothly as the best of the nine Academy Awards shows Crystal hosted. "Los Angeles Times" Crystal is, as always, charming and wry. "New York Daily News" Crystal gets a lot of laughs out of the indignities of aging. "USA Today" Laugh-out-loud funny. "Entertainment Weekly" Crystal has the charisma, humor, and down-home charm that fans have loved over the years . . . [He] delivers numerous chuckles and flat-out belly laughs . . . To quote one of his most famous characters, Billy Crystal, you look mahvelous.' "Associated Press" A book with a thousand laughs entwined with unknown stories about some of the most popular movies of the past decades. Tender moments abound, too, as the reader winds his way through Billy's long varied career. "Steve Martin" This book is kick-ass funny and truly unique. A Hollywood autobiography with only one wife, no rehab, a loving family and loyal friends. "Robin Williams" Billy Crystal is a national treasure. Thank God he wrote this hilarious and emotional book because now I don't have to and I'll still have something personal to give everyone at Christmas. "Bette Midler" A charming, warm, welcome read for Crystal's legions of fans . . . the always affable author proves yet again his ability to translate his comedic chops from the screen to the page. "Kirkus" Massively laugh-out-loud funny . . . Hollywood memoirs don't come much more entertaining than this one. "Booklist (starred)" Avoiding the trappings--excess schmaltz, laundry list of famous friends, boozy party log--of so many celebrity memoirs, Crystal delivers a funny and genuinely moving chronicle of his life inside and outside Hollywood....(and) manages the extremely difficult feat of making his prose as vibrant and funny as his stand-up. He'll always be a hard act to follow. "Publishers Weekly""
