Overview

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.

But very difficult and time consuming to get to the answers at end of each month on Nook as you have to bypass so many pages
MrOldGuy More than 1 year ago
Although this is a terrific trivia book, without a friendly method to move back and forth between the questions and the answers, it is less than a useful format. The questions are grouped by month with all of the answers for any month after the questions for the last day of that month. There is no mechanism (e.g., hyperlinks) that I can find to flip back and forth between a question and its answer. If you want this book, buy it printed on paper.

The headline above says it all. The trivia is divided into 365 days, giving you trivia facts relevent to each day of the year, and plenty plenty of trivia questions to last easily for 2 years.
