More About the Author

Ken Jennings was an anonymous Salt Lake City software engineer in 2004 when he became a nerd folk icon almost overnight via his record-breaking six-month streak on the TV quiz show Jeopardy! In his 75 appearances on the show, Ken won 74 games and $2.52 million, both American game show records. Barbara Walters named him one of the ten most fascinating people of the year. The Christian Science Monitor called him "the king of Trivia Nation" and Slate magazine dubbed him "the Michael Jordan of trivia, the Seabiscuit of geekdom." ESPN: The Magazine called him "smarmy (and) punchable," with "the personality of a hall monitor," thus continuing America's long national struggle between jocks and nerds.

Since his Jeopardy! streak ended, Ken has become a best-selling author. His books include Brainiac, about the phenomenon of trivia in American culture, Ken Jennings's Trivia Almanac, the biggest American trivia book ever assembled, and Maphead, about his lifelong love of geography. His latest book is Because I Said So!: The Truth Behind the Myths, Tales, and Warnings Every Generation Passes Down Its Kids.

Ken currently lives outside Seattle, Washington, with his wife Mindy, his son Dylan and daughter Caitlin, and a deeply unstable Labrador retriever named Banjo. For more information, visit www.ken-jennings.com.

Jennings has come up with a fun way to absorb over 8800 different blurbs of trivia. The book is in Almanac form and has a daily fact that reflects something related to that day. There are also trivia questions and many are ranked as "easy" "hard" and "yeah good luck". He has also included matching quizzes on just about any topic that you can think of.
All in all, Jennings has put together an informative and absolutely entertaining book. I would highly recommend this to anyone that wants to know more!

I can never get my fill of trivia, and this book was a gem. There is a lot of interesting information, from a man who was very successful at this. Read to your heart's content.

I feel smarter every day that I read Ken's book. Oh...I do read ahead, because it is quite intriguing. Some of the questions are really hard. But now I think that I'll know more than the average person when the year is over. All kidding aside, it is great. I loved watching Ken on Jeopardy, and think that he could have gone even farther. Everyone has their limits. I totally recommend this book to every trivia buff, and even those who just want to know more.

This is not your typical "what happened on this day" book, but it is laid out as such. Each day has two or three things that happened on that particular day and then trivia questions or match-ups related to them. Most occurrences were obscure items - you wouldn't find the fact that the Titanic sank on April 15, rather that the Beatles recorded the first hidden message in rock music that day. If you want to know the basic things, such as birthdays or more obvious what-happened-on-this-day facts, I would suggest getting another book for that. This, however, really is full of fascinating trivia, I love it!

We bought this for a gift for a Jeapordy fan. We think it makes the perfect Christams gift as you can do a whole year of trivia starting with Jan 1.
