Billy Crystal writes, in his inimitable voice, about his father whose two jobs left him only Sundays to spend with his son, and who died after only 700 Sundays. This is a lovely little book based on Billy Crystals Tony Award-winning play of the same name by the same very nice very funny person. I enjoyed it.

One of America's most beloved entertainers takes us home. Billy Crystal opens the front door to a time in his life when he shared joy, love, music, and laughter with an eccentric family headed by the heardworking father wholeft them all too soon. To support his family, Billy's father, Jack worked two jobs and long hours and could spare only Sundays to spend with his loved ones. But these precious days would be in short supply - Jack's life was suddenly ended by a heart attack when Billy was just fifteen. 700 Sundays refers to the sadly precise amount of time shared by a devoted father and his adoring son.

This was a very funny, sad and excellent book. Billy Crystal was born to be a comedian. He is a warm and caring person and it shines through in his book.

This was a wonderful tribute book. It is a tribute not only to Billy Crystals father, but to his entire family. I found it warm and funny and a delightful read.

Awesome story about a very blessed American kid who grew up in an immigrant family, hung out with legends, lost his dad at age 15, and who just happened to be Billy Crystal.
