What’s new inside the electrifying Guinness World Records 2020?
For the SNAPSHOT features, we gave our digital artists a unique challenge: London has always been the home of GWR, so what would it look like if a few iconic records – such as the tallest statue, largest space station and the cash of the richest living person – were placed next to the city’s most famous landmarks? The results are in, and they’re quite astounding…
This year’s feature chapter focuses on ROBOTS – both real and sci-fi – and profiles 10 of the most significant record-breakers. Robotics expert Evan Ackerman leads us through the story of our mechanical cousins, and looks at some of the latest developments at the forefront of robot technology.
Records you can try at home
VIRAL SPORTS have taken the world by storm. Check out the chapter dedicated to these captivating activities including speedcubing, yoyoing, juggling, pool-tricking and parkour. Look out for the Do Try This At Home Challenges in this section, and see if you have what it takes to be a record-holder!

No...wait....I don’t want to get into any legal disputes over nomenclature so let’s refer to the older one as “Pete K” and the younger as “Pete C”
You see; these two humans are the most fun a person can possibly have at a diner; and I feel this achievement deserves recognition. Pete K is fun at a diner because the sever will inevitably forget his toast and he will lose his mind over it, screaming at points “where’s my toast? Where’s my toast” and frightening children into believing he is actually an escapee having a schizoid episode... I once watched a waitress almost hand him toast and then place it lovingly in front of someone at the next table. He spent some time in jail after that one, but at least the waitress recovered from the emotional trauma...and Pete C is fun at a diner because he sticks utensils in his ears and makes a stew of every item on the table. He then eats it; which is really the impressive part. I once saw him eat a stew of runny eggs, coffee, condiments, and a single strawberry. It was the most ghastly concoction I’d ever seen. He thoroughly enjoyed it.
In any case it’s just sad that this book didn’t include “most fun person at a diner” it already has so many arbitrary records that it really gets under my skin.
Anyway; it’s a good read and you should buy it; but Pete K and Pete C really need to duke it out over this diner thing.
My only gripe is that as world records have become a business some trivial ones appear. Guinness World Records merged with Ripley's Believe It or Not in 2008 and makes a good business charging fees to certify 'records'. The person with the most Marvel character tattoos? Seriously? Things like this, and the pages of video game records make the book feel like it's filled with product placement (which it may well be).
But still, it's the kind of fun stuff that kids enjoy reading and can pick up at their leisure.
