Ken Jennings: Brainiac

Ken Jennings achieved pop culture cult status after his 75-show run on Jeopardy! He was quickly labeled as the smartest man in America and such places as ESPN revised him as the nerd you wanted to punch out.

This month, he published his Jeopardy! memoirs and an in-depth look at the sociology of trivia in our society. Brainiac: Adventures in the Curious, Competitive, Compulsive World of Trivia Buffs turned out to be a fascinating book written by a very funny, self-effacing and humble man. Ken Jennings as a person is imminently likeable. His writing style is equally engaging and entertaining.

You can read more about both Ken Jennings and his new book by following the links above. Also, watch this spot in the next couple of weeks for an exclusive interview with the trivia master who is currently touring the U.S. promoting his book.
