What is the smartest, most celebrated game show of all time? In this insider’s guide, discover the rich history of Jeopardy!—the quiz show that has shaped our culture and challenged audiences for years.
In 2020, Claire McNear's ANSWERS IN THE FORM OF QUESTIONS first chronicled Jeopardy! at the precipice of change. In 2021, it was McNear's reporting on the dramatic race to replace Alex Trebek that resulted in the dismissal of Mike Richards just a day after he took over for the legendary host. In the updated paperback edition, a new afterword breaks down the Richards saga and how his day as host unfolded behind the scenes—with many more updates throughout about the rise of new super-champions like Matt Amodio and Amy Schneider.
For all its change, Jeopardy! remains an institution. ANSWERS IN THE FORM OF QUESTIONS takes readers backstage at Jeopardy!'s Culver City studio, exploring Trebek's life and legacy, the high-stakes search for a new host, and how the show's writers and producers put together the nightly game. Readers will travel to bar-trivia showdowns with Jeopardy!’s biggest winners and training sessions with trivia whizzes prepping for their shot onstage. And they’ll discover new tales of the show’s most notable moments—like the time the Clue Crew almost slid off a glacier—and learn how celebrity cameos and Saturday Night Live spoofs helped build a television mainstay.

ANSWERS IN THE FORM OF QUESTIONS looks to the past—and the future—to explain what Jeopardy! really is: a game, a show, and a beloved tradition.
