Overview

From every corner of the globe—and beyond—Guinness World Records™ 2009 gathers the most amazing, inspirational, and even bizarre record breakers yet! From don’t-try-this-at-home human achievements to natural and technological wonders, incredible feats in sports and entertainment, and much more, this latest edition introduces important new records and fascinating facts that will captivate every imagination. Did you know . . .

At 2 feet 5.37 inches, the shortest (mobile) living man is 19-year-old He Pingping of China, who was measured on March 22, 2008.

The world’s most expensive cocktail is offered at the Skyview Bar in Dubai, UAE. It costs $7,439 (27,321 dirham) and consists of 55-year-old Macallan whisky from Scotland, ice made from the water used at their distillery, a drop of exclusive dried fruit bitters, and passion-fruit-scented sugar.

Jeanne Stawiecki of the United States became the oldest female to climb the Seven Summits, including Mount Kosciuszko, when she completed her last climb (Mount Everest, Nepal) on May 22, 2007, at the age of 57 years, 36 days.

And that’s just a hint of what you’ll find inside this mind-blowing book, including striking photos, exclusive interviews, special sections on the year’s milestones—plus information on how you too can join the Guinness family of world-record breakers!

    if you always wondered how many jumping jacks someone can do in 60 seconds read this.

    this was ok the only reason i bought it was because i read these when i was young.pretty informative for records and such and the 3d pictures were kinda cool,i think this is more for kids though then adults.

    Continues to bring joy to the recipient!

    Ever since the Guiness World Records book went to hard cover, I have purchased one for my son each and every Christmas. It's become a little joke, wrapped up and put under the tree for him, when he picks it up and says 'Gee, I wonder what THIS is? Thanks Mom, I can count on this every year.' My son is not a clean freak, but he keeps his room very tidy, and throws out extraneous knick-knacks, pictures, and things I consider to be memorabilia. Not so with his Guiness World Record books though...still has each and every one of them. Very enjoyable to pick up, for a short browse, or a long read.

    My son loves to go through these books so I buy him one each year for Christmas. He flips through to find the most unusual entries and informs us all about them. PSSST! He even has an entry of his own!
