Seventy-seven million baby boomers have either recently joined or will soon join Billy Crystal at this milestone birthday. In this New York Times bestseller, Crystal looks back at the most powerful and memorable moments of his storied life and provides a roadmap to the absurdities and challenges that come along with aging. He reflects on everything from his legendary stint at Saturday Night Live, to making City Slickers and When Harry Met Sally…, to his long run as host of the Academy Awards, to his one-day career with the New York Yankees (he was the first player to ever "test positive for Maalox") and his enduring friendships with several of his idols, including Mickey Mantle and Muhammad Ali. In between these unforgettable tales are chapters like "Buying and Plot" and "Nodding Off," in which Crystal catalogs his gripes in hilarious detail. 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.

Wise, poignant and laugh-out-loud funny, Still Foolin’ ‘Em is a triumphant counterpunch to the indignities of aging, from the beloved comedian who for forty years has captured the anxieties and joys of his generation.
