Format: Hardcover
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!

My wife used this, among other sources, to prepare for her appearance on Jeopardy! Great entertainment even if you're not planning for Jeopardy!

If you're into trivia and like Jeopardy, this is the book for you. Its amazing how the players remember all the stuff contained. Jennings has listed subjects together. He then challenges you to try and answer the question.
I know I learned the answers only to have to think about them a while later.
Its a neat book that arrived very fast and is used frequently. Good dealer.

Hands down this is the best trivia book that I have ever read. Ken always ask clever questions that aren't too hard and also not too easy. Plus, in terms of sheer volume, with nearly 9,000 high quality questions in a variety of formats. Strongly recommended.

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.

This disappointed me personally because it is in the format of quizzes where you test your knowledge and then can check your answers. I probably did not read the description well, it was probably clear and I messed up. The vast majority of the questions I had no clue as to the answer. What I was looking for was a book that just contained bits of trivia. This book would probably be fun for somebody who already has good knowledge of trivia.

Great trivia organized by theme, including some puns, some clever categories, and some funny facts. I use this book to help me brainstorm for writing my own pub trivia, but these questions can be a little simplistic in their wording. Strange to call a book organized linearly and to a calendar "ingeniously organized" though.

I love this book so much! I carry it around with me and bring it at work to help pass the time. The questions are so varied in topic and difficulty. Even the separation by calendar day was fun. I wish it were easier to sswitch back and forth between the questions and the answers, though, but that's just a small qualm.
