In this insider's guide, discover the rich history of Jeopardy -- the beloved game show that has shaped our culture and entertained audiences for years.

For thirty-six years, Jeopardy! has been a television mainstay. In that time, it has become a deeply entrenched American tradition and the sort of cross-generational touchstone the likes of which are few and far between in pop culture.

With backstage missives and deep dives into backroom training sessions and alumni pub trivia teams, this is the book about Jeopardy!: its history and how it comes together; how the most successful players use strategy to dominate; how aspiring contestants revamp their lives to improve their chances of getting to play; the man-myth-legend that is host Alex Trebek; what life looks like after winning big on Jeopardy!; the Saturday Night Livespoofs; that time the Clue Crew almost slid off a glacier -- and everything in between.

Jeopardy! has changed very little in all its years on the air, but America's Favorite Quiz Show -- it holds the trademark -- now finds itself in a moment of profound transition. Answers in the Form of Questions is a moment to celebrate everything that has made the show what it is today, as well as a look forward to what lies ahead.
