Final Jeopardy! category: WORLD OF BOOKS

Final Jeopardy! clue: Mussolini considered this book written during the Renaissance “the statesman’s supreme guide”

Sue 3200 – 1200 = 2000
Gordon 10600 + 10548 = 21148
Natalie 20000 + 1201 = 21201 (3-day champ,$57,601)

(Andy’s opinion: I know I’m cheering for Mai tomorrow after watching Natalie’s betting in her run so far!)
