Publisher's Summary

New York Times Best Seller

In this book, Billy Crystal, currently starring in the new TV show The Comedians as an aging comic, gives a hilarious and heartfelt account of what it's really like to get older. Billy Crystal is turning 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. 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 to 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, 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.

Very amusing, sometimes poignant but occasionally a little too much on the Ali worship

This is a very enjoyable audiobook from one of America’s finest comedians. It charts Crystal’s upbringing in a Jewish New York family to how his stand up and acting career gathers momentum, all the way to him turning 65 and reflecting on his own posterity. Throughout are weaved amusing anecdotes about his career (the Orson Welles joke is brutal!), his family life and his thought on getting older.

Undoubtedly the funniest moments are when he’s performing live and riffing. There are also some very tender moments when he talks about his loved ones, particularly towards the end.

The only criticism would be what feels like an obsession with Mohammed Ali and Micky Mantle. I realise they are heros of Crystal but it does get a little tiresome hearing about them after a while.

A highly enjoyable listen nonetheless.

Too self appreciating

I do love the work of Billy Crystal and this title started off well, but I began to feel slightly irritated by him the more the book progressed. I felt there was too much of; ‘look at how great I’ve become’ and the name dropping was a tad too much at times too. I found the stories about his kids tiresome. I’ll stick to watching his movies.

Simply superb

A brilliant story written with such honesty and openness it draws you into Billy’s world easily. A fabulous laugh along tale that shines a big light on Billy’s obvious love for his wife and family. I especially enjoyed the stand up comedy parts as this guy is a fast talking comic with perfect timing. I’ll be listening to this again soon enough...simply superb from start to finish.

Sentimental, funny, engaging & thoughtful - beautiful.

I am surprised about how much I enjoyed this book. I found Billy funny, amusing & easy to listen to.

His stories, his memories & his love for his family - incredible experiences with people who were and are important to him.

He’s a sentimental soul & this book has made me rewatch movies of him that I like. I’m going to watch 700 Sundays on my dads birthday for the nostalgia and I expect it will pull on the heart strings.

Entertaining and Insightful.

A comical and thoughtful reflection on life when you have "one-foot-in-the-grave" told with energy and great humour by Billy Crystal. Part autobiography and part musing reflection on life when you are over 60. It was a pleasure to listen to Billy Crystal narrate his life, his worries, family life and pivotal career moments and people in his life as well as his bug bears in his senior year. This audio is presented in two parts; readings infront of a live auduence as well as a private, iintimate narration. This unusual audio delivery production gels together very well. And yes, Billy does eventually find his keys!

Like it the more I listened to it

Was worried at first, as a 34 year old male I couldn't relate to his opening chapters to do with being old. But when it started going through his life it was honest and fascinating. Loved it.?

Made me laugh alot, would reccomend to anyone with a sense of humor. The book has some sad daunting parts that may upset some but the situation is quickly revived with more humor
