Format: Hardcover
This is a great book that has so many great records listed in it. On top of that you get an amazing array of records in so many different areas. Filled with larger than life pictures, you will get lost in reading this with your family.

I have loved being a fan of Guinness World Records for years and every year I am always interested in seeing whether the people who held the awards continue to do so or not. I have got my daughters now hooked on this too.

This was a well made book with great images and amazing information!

My son has been reading and quoting this book since he received it for Christmas. It is a very large hardcover book, and the pictures in it are great. The only thing I don't like about it is that some of the records just seem really gross to me now and I don't remember my childhood copy having all those "records". He has given me examples of multiple gory injuries that somehow didn't cause death, like a man falling off a ladder with a drill bit that goes through his eye and pushed his brain to the side, and other unpleasant things, like the person with the most holes in their face who can run a string through his mouth from the hole in one cheek to the hole in the other.

He also got the video game version, which I almost prefer to this because of my examples, but he seems to like this one much more.

This is Christmas gift. It was not wrapped in any plastic. Just book. So I read it. Interesting articles. Book is hardback and bright in color. This book has a lot of trivia in it. If anyone still gives a trivia party this book would put you leaps on everyone else. Last trivia party I went to. Everyone wrote on slips of paper different trivia questions and answers. The slips were put in hat. One person pulls slip of paper out of hat and ask question. Who ever answers it write get points.

Or just leave it in bathroom to read when going 10-200 if you get my drift.

I get these every year for my son, even though he has kind of outgrown them, he still likes them. I almost skipped this year but he said he is really glad I got it again. He has a collection. I think it's a fun book to browse and although he is almost 14 now, during the years when he was between the ages 8-12 he excitedly went into hiding every year and read them cover to cover. They are picked up again and again throughout the year by him and his friends, so I know they were well liked. The stories peaked interest and curiosity, and prompted many interesting discussions. Some of it is downright weird, but fun and interesting for kids and adults. Some of it is a little gross, but that is probably the most appealing thing to kids, lol.

I highly recommend this book! First of all you cant beat the price. I shopped around before purchasing this for my son for Christmas and Amazon had the best price! I get the new one for my son every Christmas, this has kept my son who is 12 and my daughter who is 9 enthralled with reading for countless hours. My son loves to look at it before bed at night and tells us all the interesting facts and details he has learned from it throughout the week. He is excited to get time to look at it. I would highly recommend this for the young or old, it offers countless hours of entertainment!

I remember back in the day, GWR was a small, thick paperback with record after record... this NOT that book. The book now is definitely more engaging, has photos, all color pages, and each 2-page spread has a particular theme. The new format (I don't know how long they have had it like this though?) has a thick hardback cover in a shiny yellow metallic that makes it look like a rockstar is gonna pop out when you open it up. I think the old format was more my personal style... but for my 9 year old brother--of this digital age--he will LOVE this come Christmas time. For kids that aren't as bookish but that you want to engage in an ipad-less activity, this will definitely keep their attention.

My 7 year old loves the Guiness record books. He got this one as an early Christmas gift and he has really enjoyed it! It is such an interesting book. It's filled with facts about sports, video games, travel - you name it, it is in there. It's such a big book, I don't think he'll ever run out of interesting facts to read! The print is high quality as well., Images are bright and the pages are strong. This would be a great gift for a child or an adult. I've enjoyed reading it myself!
