Summary:

In early 2019, longtime Jeopardy! host and television icon Alex Trebek made the stunning announcement that he had been diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer. What followed was an incredible outpouring of love and kindness. Social media was flooded with messages of support, and the Jeopardy! studio received boxes and boxes of cards and letters offering guidance, encouragement, and prayers. A private man, Trebek had for over three decades resisted countless appeals to write a book about his life. Yet he was moved so much by all the goodwill, he felt compelled to finally share his story. In The Answer Is, Trebek combines illuminating personal anecdotes with his thoughts on a range of topics, including happiness, grief, ambition, marriage, divorce, parenthood, curiosity, spirituality, and philanthropy. Using a novel structure inspired by Jeopardy!, with each chapter title in the form of a question, Trebek also addresses the questions he is most often asked by fans of the show.
