I loved this book. It was written by Ken Jennings, the guy who won 2.5 million dollars on Jeopardy right after they lifted the 5-day win restriction. While the book covers his run on Jeopardy, it is really about the history of trivia and the people who are obsessed with it. Jennings is a witty writer and I loved learning about the quirky people for whom trivia can be a way of life.
