What is a book recommendation?
This book isn't just about how to win (or lose) on Jeopardy or what Alex Trebek is really like (seriously, you won't learn a lot about Alex, they keep him away from the contestants for the most part). This book is just as much about one man's journey from aimless wandering to finding real meaning in his life. Trebekistan becomes more than just a bunch of pointless memorized trivia. For Harris, Trebekistan becomes the realization that everything seems connected in some way and a good way to learn more about the world (and yourself) is to explore it.
Read this book if you want a good laugh. Read this book if you like rooting for the underdog (just don't always expect to win). And if you ever thought about competing on game shows, you just might learn something about that too. But most of all, this book is a heartfelt memoir of one man's gradual progression to finding himself through the most unlikely of paths. This book won't change your life, but you will be glad you read it.
