Book Description

15 Jan 2008
Ken Jennings’s Trivia Almanac is the ingeniously organized book where, for a change, the all-time Jeopardy! champ gets to ask the questions–and where every day of the year will give you the chance to test your trivia mettle.

For example–February 21: In 1912, on this day, Teddy Roosevelt coined the political phrase “hat in the ring,” so Ken Jennings fires off a series of “ring” questions. What two NFL quarterbacks have four Super Bowl rings each?* What rings are divided by the Cassini Division?** Also on this date, in 1981, the “goth” music scene was born in London, so here’s a quiz on black-clad icons like Darth Vader, Johnny Cash, and Zorro. Do you know the secret identities of Ivanhoe’s Black Knight*** or Men in Black’s Agent M****?

In this ultimate book for trivia buffs and other assorted know-it-alls, the 365 entries feature “This Day in History” factoids, trivia quizzes, and questions categorized by Jennings as “Easy,” “Hard,” and “Yeah, Good Luck.” Topics cover every subject under the sun, from paleontology to mixology, sports feats to Bach suites, medieval popes to daytime soaps. This addictive gathering of facts, oddities, devilishly clever quizzes, and other flights of fancy will make each day a fun and intriguing new challenge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate in Triva 28 Feb 2008
By Headwilly - Published on Amazon.com
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars I feel smarter 17 Feb 2008
By B. Galloway - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Blast at Parties (no, seriously!) 19 Sep 2011
By Joshua Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is a great book. Not only is it bound and typset very well, it has some great trivia. I received this for my birthday and my family and I couldn't help but sit around the living room while one of us rattled off questions and we all tried to answer them. It was a ton of fun and we all learned a lot. I totally recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Almost 6 questions per penny 2 Jan 2011
By Steve Conslaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
How can anybody know this stuff? Tons of great questions. Based on the price of the new book, you get almost 6 questions per cent, and more than that if you get the Kindle version. After whiffing on most of the questions, I felt like a dolt, then I looked up the answers, and I was looking for an excuse to show off my new "knowledge". This book is highly recommended.
