Ken Jennings’s Trivia Almanac: 8,888 Questions in 365 Days – Ken Jennings


Answer: By writing a trivia book.

Question: How can the all-time “Jeopardy!” champion extend his 15 minutes of fame?

Ken Jennings famously rode a 74-game winning streak on “Jeopardy!” in 2004, and now he shares his nuggets of knowledge with you in his weighty “Trivia Almanac.”

Designed to look like an almanac “” complete with quaint, goofy clip art and folksy fonts “” the book contains about two dozen questions for each day of the year, separated into themed games and supplemented with historic facts for that date (example: “1932: Future ‘Tarzan’ star Cheeta is born in Liberia”).

It’s a lot of fun for those into arcane knowledge. Keep it around the office to share in the enjoyment with co-workers during those mid-morning lulls, because not much spices up the day than a spirited debate over the color of Bo Derek’s swimsuit in the movie “10.”
