Ken Jenning's Brainiac is a great read. Personaly I liked getting insight from agenius all throughout the book. The book contains the story of how ken made it to JEOPARDY! As well as other trivia events he has been to. If I were you I would buy the book right now!

In this wonderful, very cleverly put-together book, Ken Jennings talks about his Jeopardy! experience, his nationwide travels to meet some big names in the trivia world (including the long-elusive Fred Worth, author of the 1970s cult classic Trivia Encyclopedia). But, most importantly for his writer, he articulates why trivia is 'not so trivial' (and deserves a much more 'significant' name) better than anything I have ever read on the subject--and I've read plenty in the past 30 years. Ken does just as lucid a job in describing the different kinds of trivia, what makes good trivia, and other stuff like that, that will make you appreciate the well-written question all the more. There's never been a book on trivia like this. If, like me, you've got bookshelves groaning with trivia books, this is a MUST HAVE.
