2.0 out of 5 stars Recent format is a shadow of the former version. February 9, 2013
By M.M.
Format:Hardcover
The decision to tranform this book from its long standing text-reference form to this flashy watered down version was a major blunder. I recall volumes from the 70's to the turn of the 21st century as an awesome resource for disovering not just 'people' records, but those of nature and the universe as well. While past volumes were hundreds of pages of tightly packed information; you can't find most of the previous records in these current formats, nor is most the information available on their website. Here's an example, what's the coldest land temp. ever recorded? My 1999 book of world records had that info., but information like that seems to have been replaced by 'how many lightbulbs can a person break off a trampoline'. Interesting? Perhapse, but not at the extent of the wealth of information that seems to have been locked away forever by the current publishers. I miss the days when the Guiness Book of World Records was an indexed atlas more than its current form of a 'freak show'.

5.0 out of 5 stars "FASCINATING, ENTERTAINING, INFORMATIVE!" September 15, 2012
Format:Hardcover
The quality of the information and images are outstanding, easy to read, and is a great conversational piece for parties, and social gatherings. I have always been an enthusiast, and enjoyed the Guinness World Records. An excellent and fun book to sit on a coffee table, in a library, or at a dentist office. The content is interesting, the book is informative, and many find it fascinating, and entertaining. You won't be disappointed and children love it also, especially the photos. It's simply amazing to find out ridiculous obsessions some people have, or bizarre things people do as you read on about dreams and laughter built into the pages. In addition, it delivers information about astonishing stunts, the longest bridge, the tallest man and much more. This book not only discovers amazing people in the world, but also provides hours of pure fun-filled enjoyment. Of course, the more you read, the more curious you become. Stimulating, Entertaining, and Highly Recommended!

1.0 out of 5 stars Too much shock and awe! December 15, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
As a kid, I remember enjoying the Guinness book of world records we had but it was nothing like the garbage they've come up with today. This book features too many images which are inappropriate for kids - most facial piercings (over 200), most body modifications (man with chiseled teeth, tattoos, piercings), tattoos over nearly 100% of a woman's body, most famous celebrities featuring Lady Gaga repeatedly, most knives thrown at another person (woman with multiple tattoos pinned to a board with knives which had been thrown all around her stuck into the board), man holding up 30 pounds of weights with hooks through his skin. Violent and scary images abound. It seems like anyone can obtain a place in the record book for any kind of oddity. I bought it for my 10 year old thinking it would be educational and cool and was very disappointed in its content. I would not recommend this if you are thinking about buying it for your children. We also have the 2014 edition and it seems to have a little less of the piercings and violent images, but still it feels like an advertisement for shock and awe television. Garbage! Parents beware.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kids like it February 14, 2013
By Mike888
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My 10 year old likes the book but I was really hoping it would be more like the ones I used to read on the 70's/80's where there were endless pages (ok, maybe hundreds) of records. This is more flash than content, but to someone like my son who is not familiar with how things used to be, it's ok.

1.0 out of 5 stars No car records?? December 11, 2013
By Nasahr
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very pointless book, and has the most uninteresting facts and records in the world. Don't waste your money. Worlds biggest sausage? Who cares!!? First man to use a toilet in space? not interesting. Plus there being NO car section at all was a absolute deal breaker. Who wants to read a world records book without a car section in it. Anyone who does needs to have there brain checked or is really boring..

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Gift for a Great Grandson June 8, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book was a gift for my Great Grandson. He was very thrilled to receive this gift. At school you had to share this book and you couldn't take it home and you had to share with the whole class. He was so happy to receive his own personal copy and could read it whenever he wanted and for how long he wanted to. Kids love this book! The look on his face was so worth it.
