Billy is a baby boomer, and boomers have always proclaimed that proudly. Suddenly he is seeing the downside...sixty-five isn't always booming. With his amazing wit, Crystal talks about the aging issues that we all face, but only Billy can make a colonoscopy funny. The book jumps through the stages of his professional life, and the reader remembers them fondly. "Saturday Night Live", "Soap", his stand-up routines and of course, "When Harry Met Sally" to name a few.
To be totally fair, there were parts of the book that I wasn't thrilled with, and parts that seemed out of character. He seemed angry at times and disrespectful at other times. Humor is an interesting thing though, and one man's disrespect is another man's humor. Do yourself a favor and grab a copy of this book and read it in the same way you watch the comedian...with an open mind and sense of humor.
