S. & S. Audio. Oct. 2023. 6:47 hrs. ISBN 9781797163369. $23.99. MEMOIR
Schneider, the incredibly successful Jeopardy champion who won over $1.3 million, showcases her wide range of interests and explores her highly Catholic-influenced upbringing in Dayton, OH. Her memoir’s subtitle should alert listeners that her Jeopardy run isn’t the main focus. Although some chapters feel like filler, all help listeners get to know Amy as she touches on her love of learning, living with ADHD, her journey to discovering she was trans, sex, drugs, and her post-Jeopardy fame and how she plans to leverage it. Each chapter title comes, of course, in the form of a question, and Schneider’s narration exposes her quirky personality and sense of humor. Listeners will enjoy how her conversation style conveys her warmth and approachability. Hearing her voice is essential when she discusses her past, including reflections on gender and sexuality and her life as a trans woman.
VERDICT Schneider is not only curious; she is also interesting. Fans of her meteoric run on Jeopardy will enjoy this debut memoir, which provides food for thought for anyone curious about all the trivia of life.
