(Read by Billy Crystal, Macmillan Audio, 7 CDs, 8 hours)
Baby boomer Billy Crystal is getting on in years and doesn’t much like it. He can, however, laugh about it, and for the most part he makes us laugh as well. Be warned, however: Crystal swears often and does not shy away from some unpleasant aspects of aging. But he is also laugh-out-loud funny, and his poignant recollections are quite touching. Part memoir and part stand-up, the audiobook combines live performances with Crystal’s finely honed narration. The live sets are well produced with sound quality as good as in any other chapter. Grade: A-
