In a match-up of Jeopardy! winners, former Amazon editor Tom Nissley (who won $250,000 over an eight-episode streak last year, and wrote about it here), talks with Ken Jennings (the all-time Jeopardy! champion) about Ken's recent book, Maphead: Charting the Wide, Weird World of Geography Wonks, which I previously wrote about here. Maphead was a September Best Books of the Month pick.
Ken, who won an astounding 74 episodes straight in 2004, tells Tom that the best thing about his Jeopardy! winnings was that they bought him a second chance at a writing career - "and more time with my kids." He's now working on a book about all the lies our parents told us - Don't crack your knuckles, you'll get arthritis! Don't stand next to the microwave!
