'The Shark' reveals the hidden stories and winning strategies from the world of quiz shows.

Who wants to be a millionaire?

Brydon Coverdale did, and dedicated himself to outsmarting quiz masters on every Australian TV and radio trivia format he could - until he became so successful, he was hired by The Chase to stop others from winning.

The Quiz Masters is his fascinating, charming and funny memoir of how he played the game, along the way giving us a how-to guide for anyone who aspires to win a million dollars. As Brydon takes us through his own quizzing journey, he also reveals the psychology behind ordinary people who are prepared to gamble, under maximum pressure, in front of huge audiences, with only their brain in their armoury, and reveals how the great champions developed their special tricks of the trade.

The Quiz Masters truly takes us behind the scenes of a world that's both hugely familiar yet intriguingly unknown.
