While you won't find any information about Ken Jennings here (this book was written before his Jeopardy appearance) that doesn't diminish the enjoyment in finding out how the show is run, how contestants are selected, what taping day is like, and much more information. Included are lots of Jeopardy questions and answers if you want to host your own little show in your living room! And the sheet music to the theme for those with musical abilities! A fun and quick read.

This a fun book with a forward by Merv Griffin who tells how he started the game show. Alex Trebeck tells everything you've wanted to know about how the show works and some of the people who have appeared on it. Also includes Jeopardy questions.

This is a neat book. It even has the Jeopardy Theme Song! A cool behind-the-scenes look at Alex and the show.

The Jeopardy! Book is the best game show book I've read.I don't like how a lot of other game show books are just games to play with other people but the Jeopardy! book has cool information in addition to having games inside the book. For example I didn't know about Alex Trebek's hat collection until I read this book or the historic site Jeopardy! is taped on. What I liked most was the book was evenly divided into information about Jeopardy! then it would break into Jeopardy! game boards so I kept the book exiting for me. In addition if you even hope to try out for Jeopardy! there is information on what goes on in the contestant search and what to expect if you make it to the taping studio. Every game show fan needs to read this book. My only complaint is the game boards in the book don't have the Daily Doubles.Also even though I'm not a senior I wish there were some Senior Tournament game boards. Another complaint I have is it doesn't show Trebek's hat collection (there is not even a photo of him wearing a hat).
