The Answer Is...

Alex Trebek

Overview

Alex Trebek, beloved longtime host of the game show Jeopardy, had turned down many opportunities to write a memoir in the past, as he felt his life was similar to that of any other hard-working man. But after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and receiving mass kindness and support, Trebek agreed to share his life story.

This autobiography was published shortly before the television icon's death in 2020. Titling each chapter as a question or answer as per his signature style, Trebek recounts his life from childhood to fatherhood and beyond, reflecting on his time with the most talented Jeopardy winners and answering frequently asked questions by fans.

"When you go through experiences like these over the years and you see man's inhumanity to man and how much suffering is out there, it affects you."
