Hey Baby Boomers: This book is for YOU and isn't for those who take themselves too seriously

Attention Baby Boomers: This book isn't for those who take themselves too seriously. No this book isn't for them. Not for the close-minded, no, not for them.

In Billy Crystal's, memoir, Still Foolin' 'Em: Where I've Been, Where I'm Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys?, Crystal takes a humble, self-deprecating humorous look at himself, his adventures and the changes in life that we all experience both physically and emotionally.

Some Things:


Lew Alcindor aka Kareem Abdul Jabbar.

Dark Chocolate.


Grand parenting.

Being on this side of the dirt.

Muhammed Ali and Howard Cosell.

The Yankees, Mickey Mantle and Joe DiMaggio.

City Slickers, Beechnut and Curly.

When Harry Met Sally and "I'll have what she's having..".

New York and 9/11.

Saying goodbye and letting go.

SNL and "oh I hate when that happens" and many more...

No this book isn't for the self-centered humorless, abundantly serious people.  No this book isn't for them; It's for those of us who can stand in front of a mirror and laugh at ourselves.

Laugh at every day experiences.

Laugh at and with our religion and politics.

Laugh at and with the young, middle aged and the old.

Smile at ourselves and with one another.

..and realize we won't live forever and how joyous this life is.

So look yourself in the mirror, laugh and say...

" You look mahvelous!!"
