I just wanted to highlight one of the Amazon reviews for Bob’s book, because I think it sums it up pretty well:
As a former “Jeopardy!” and “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” contestant, I was expecting Prisoner of Trebekistan to be a funny book about the whole Jeopardy! experience. It’s not.
It’s funny alright, and it will be of great help if you are preparing for one of these shows, or want to vicariously live the life of a game show contestant, or improve your memory, but that’s not what this book is about. It’s about life, the joy of living every day and the great joy that the pursuit of knowledge can add to every moment, every experience.
Even if you think game shows are inane and a waste of time, you’ll still enjoy this book as it takes a much meandering route through the life of a stand-up comic, humor writer, internet blogger, radio personality turned 13 time Jeopardy player, who has a surprisingly down to earth and just plain nice philosophy of life.
This probably isn’t the book you’re expecting. It’s not some sort of Jeopardy geek thing (although Jeopardy geeks will certainly enjoy it). It’s about much more than that.
And how convenient — here’s a link where you can buy it.
