Absolutely LOVED this book! Did not want to put it down! Such a fast read! Was like Alex was having a conversation with us, telling us stories, each chapter is it’s own story. Is a book you can read over and over again! Rated 6/5 stars!

Short anecdotes on Alex's life - I enjoyed this very much.

This was an enjoyable easy read of Alex Trebek’s life. It is an autobiography, and he’s a game show host, not a writer. But his witty remarks made me lol and he even cursed sometimes! That surprised me somehow... RIP Alex

With his book Alex Trebek proved he was as affable and entertaining in print as he was on television. Apparently, his book was written and published only a few months before he died. It is an easy read. It is a quick read - due in part to…

Because of the number of people who had placed a hold on the book, I was only able to read it after Alex Trebek had passed away. Timing worked out to my advantage, though, as I finished the book on the Friday that his last Jeopardy!…

Heartwarming, touching and inspiring. We’re lucky to get an insight of what Alex really was in this book. So sad to lose such a great person. I miss him dearly. I no longer watch Jeopardy as it’s not the same. I feel Alex is Jeopardy’s…

Nice, heartwarming stories with lots of positive messages. Nothing over-the-top amazing about this book, but I enjoyed it.

I enjoyed this book - he has some nice reflections on his life and interesting stories. The chapters are only a couple pages and it reads quite fast. I found it interesting to learn about where he had come from and how he ended up where…

What a great loss.

Alex (with some help, probably) has left us an interesting biography; satisfying but not outstanding. Nothing wrong with that. I enjoyed the read.

From radio broadcasting to game show host, Alex Trebek is one quick-witted, hard-working, bold-cursing, milk-drinking man. He has stated that he does NOT endorse or solicit any other books written about him or his life so I trust this…

I'll admit it up front that I'm a hardcore Jeopardy fan and Alex Trebek has been a nightly visitor in my home for many years. Less a conventional biography and more a "here's my background and life philosophy" book, this quick read is…

I am a huge Jeopardy! fan. Thus I was eagerly looking forward to Alex Trebek's memoir. When I started the book I was a little disappointed because as he says himself, it is the story of a typical lower- middle class boy. But once he starts…

I really enjoyed this book. Alex has lived a interesting , humble life. I admire him even more now. Behind the scenes look at Jeopardy.

Alex Trebek has been an American institution and beloved figure for over 30 years but we have known little about him beyond the glimpses on his famous show. Now with his health in jeopardy (no pun intended), this Canadian transplant…
