Overview

The Now Show Book of World Records boldly tackles all the superlatives that other books of world records avoid. It does this by means of making stuff up and scrupulously avoiding too much research, insight, or fact. Unless the fact is funnier. And legal to mention. Split into illuminating subject sections, categories include: Biggest Scare Story, Worst Political Gaffe, Most Hated Corporate Jargon, Most Annoying Recorded Announcement, Most Stressful Special Occasion, Most Baffling Commercial, Most Inaccurate Weather Forecast—and many more! With Marcus Brigstocke and Mitch Benn adding their own fine touches, this book is as fascinating and engrossing as that other book on world records (you know the one), but much, much funnier.
