Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

The Guinness World Records had a slightly embarrassing origin: In November 1951, while on an Irish hunting holiday, the managing director of Guinness Breweries became embroiled in a friendly dispute about the relative speed of bird species. From that mild tiff was born a first great project and then an almost instant word-of-mouth bestseller. To say it is successful is an understatement: In fact, in its various editions, Guinness World Records is now the bestselling copyrighted book of all time. The key to its popularity is its ever evolving nature, evidenced in this new illustrated edition with new topics and feature chapters; hundreds of new and updated records; more than 100 original photographs; "See-It-3D" icons; and, not least, a free Guinness World Records app. Officially amazing indeed.

    Teenage Boy's Delight

    It is a challenge these days to find something for a teenage boy that is not electronic. I gave this to my 13 year old son and he loves it! He has been reading these books for a few years now. It keeps him entertained.

    Makes a great gift for a grandchild who loves to read!

    If you want to buy a special book for a grandchild who is bright and inquisitive, look no further than this book. I gave it to my ten-year-old grandchild for Christmas, and she was so excited, having already checked out the book on more than one visit to the store. In fact, she had wanted to buy it with her own money. The pictures are very boldly colored, and the interesting facts and topics make for spirited family discussions. It was a great gift that elicited squeals of delight when it was opened!

    Great gift!

    We purchased this book for our nephew for Christmas. He loved it and so did everyone else! After opening all of us spent the rest of the day guessing records!

    Full of interesting facts!

    My 10 year old son loves these books and loves to tell me all of the information he's learned each time he reads it. It is better than letting him play video games and he is still enjoying himself! I get him the new book each year when it comes out!

    Interesting Book

    My nine-year-old daughter got this book for Christmas. It is full of colorful photographs and interesting facts. There is also an application you can use to experience the book in 3D.
