About the Author

Ken Jennings won seventy-four games and $2.52 million on Jeopardy!, both U.S. game show records. His book, Brainiac, about his bizarre Jeopardy! adventures and the phenomenon of trivia in American culture, was a national bestseller. He currently lives outside Seattle, with his family and a deeply unstable Labrador retriever named Banjo.
