    A delightful little book. Much of the book is photos or the clues and answers from certain games, but I really enjoyed the little prose snippets where they went into the background of the episode. As a decades-long Jeopardy fan, this was a treat.

Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.Jeopardy is one of my all time favorite game shows and I have always wondered what happens behind the scenes of one of the greatest game shows ever created.

    Good for hardcore jeopardy fans. It's a thick book of answers and their correct questions (I had to correct that phrase TWICE) from popular episodes. It's really interesting to pick up and open to a random page, and learn a new fact for the day. It also tells you who answered it (including the wrong answers-questions?-given) and if the answer went unquestioned. (you get what I mean...?) Obviously not the best read cover to cover, but a great and ...

    If you've been a lifelong fan of Jeopardy! as I am, and you already know everything there is to know about this televised library, there isn't much this book does in any surprising information or further interesting facts.

    I won this on Goodreads.“The Jeopardy! Book of Answers” by Harry Friedman and Barry Garron is a must for any Jeopardy fan. It tells of the background of many of the most compelling / captivating games played in Jeopardy’s history. For any fan this book is great educational fun. It might just inspire me to try the online test to be a contestant. The answers on one page and questions on the next is a little awkward by this lets the board be e...

    I received this book via a Goodreads giveaway.A fun book to read to read. Not only stories about the games and winners, but the games are reproduced in a way that allows you to play them yourself as you read. My one complaint concerns the answers that had a video clue. Instead of reproducing the video image, it's described in text which gives away the question. Still, very good overall.

    I loved this book. What I enjoyed most was being able to research the answers, okay questions. A mentally stimulating book that I can pick and always find something I didn’t know. I received this book as a Goodreads Giveaway and I thank the publisher for offering this book. As a long time Jeopardy fan I appreciate it.
