Guinness world records is something that attracts every one of u. 9, 2008, in celebration of Guinness World Records Day. 8. Longest distance on a unicycle in 24 hours.

Guinness world records is something that attracts every one of us. Here are some of most crazy guinness world records of all time. The most recent one to hit the shelves is the Guinness World Records 2010. Sam Wakeling covered 45. kilometers (28. 5 miles) on a unicycle in a 24-hour period at Aberystwyth, Wales, United Kingdom, from Sept.

Guinness World Records, known from its inception in 1955 until 2000 as The Guinness Book of Records and in previous United . Since then, Guinness World Records has gone on to become a record breaker in its own right.

With hundreds of new records, photographs, and gatefolds, an updated edition of the favorite annual reference features more tales of heroism, survival, and feats of daring, as well as new sections on forensic science, the environments, terrorism and conflict, home entertainment and consumer tech, health of the nation, games and puzzles, and peculiar pastimes. 1,000,000 first printing.
  • I miss the old Guiness record books. The big, thick paperbacks from the 1970s and 1980s filled with words AND pictures. These new books are produced for a generation of page-flippers, not readers. And that is so disappointing.

    Sure, it's a nice coffee-table book if you like those kinds of books. Many of us like books for the content, not the presentation. Substance more than style.

    I wish Guiness would offer two versions: this version for the page flippers, and a more complete, thorough book for true fans of reading about world records.

  • Guinness World Records is unique in that it was the first to certify all kinds of weird records. For example, Fastest Banana Eater. All the records are certified. Some records are continually broken. This book is the inspiration for the eating contests like the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating which is held every year on July 4th. Then there are records like the oldest verified human being. Sorry not Methusula. This book is published in many forms. I've owned many. Like the Almanac it's updated every year. This version is the 2008 Paperback Version. Small and compact but somewhat dificult to read but as far as I can tell all the records are included. If you want the hard copy or coffee table editions you'll have easier reading but will have to probably pay at least double the price.

  • The GWR-GE 2008 is the company's first effort to bring together a book for computer gamers, showing gaming records and facts. As such, it's a good dip of the toes into the big wide world of gaming.

    The book itself is well presented. Not just a list of facts, it pleases the eye with easy-to-read double page spreads, boxes for additional information and plenty of graphics. One issue with the graphics - while they're mostly linked to the text, the references are not always easy to find and the order of the links is not clear.

    The book itself is fairly platform-agnostic. It's split into game categories, and after providing an overview of the category history details some of the games in each category. This is where it starts falling down, with some notable gaps. Under action-adventure we read about Colossal Caves but no mention is made of Zork. And where is the Kings Quest series? Under role-playing games the Ultima series is mentioned, but not Wizardry!

    The section on simulation games does at least mention Flight Simulator - but neglects the fact that combat flight simulators are an enormous market. And what about space combat? Nothing on Wing Commander, no X-Wing or anything else in this category.

    In racing games, the Need for Speed series is mentioned briefly but really deserves more space. Hands up if you've played chess against your computer? Well sorry, but it doesn't rate a mention in the puzzle and maze section - no Chessmaster, no Kasparov or any other champion-branded games.

    On the weird side, there's a section dedicated to "music games". Huh? These have been around for five minutes guys - surely there are better uses of this space.

    So, in summary: a nicely presented overview of gaming and gaming records, but hopefully the next edition will be more thorough.

  • At 8 and a half, my daughter is obsessed for whatever reason about this book and about 99 percent of the things in it. She keeps checking it out of her school's library so to see it wrapped up (thanks Amazon) under our tree was just exciting for her to say the least. Again, I don't know why, but this book I just have to give rave reviews because the light of my life can't get enough of it. The great colorful photos and large print adds to it all I'm pretty sure.

  • The two books aren't the same - and if the reviewer was expecting the same, he's nuts. This is the thick paperback that lists thousands of records. The glossy hardcover is the coffee-table version that lists far fewer records. One isn't a duplicate of the other - they are entirely separate books. If you're into this kind of book, then this is the Guinness paperback you expect.

  • 8 year old loved these books

  • This is full of facts and records, but it would be lice to less writing on them and more, larger photos about them.

  • I will keep this review short and sweet, as I feel I can rant about this book for quite some time: the history section is riddled with incorrect and wrongly-spotlighted information (a European computer takes up more space than the PSOne, Saturn and N64 region of the "fifth generation" section, for example), there's really no way of telling how some of their data is organized (the entire "Review of the Year" section has no context, unless I've severely missed it), along with some blatantly incorrect scores (after some research I know that it took more than five minutes to complete the original Super Mario Brothers, the last number I saw was 5:14).

    Aside from the book being quite nicely bound, with full-color pages and a beautiful presentation (as is done with every Guinness book), this text is just... wrong. And I honestly see it as an insult to my favorite hobby. The whole piece makes me wonder if Guinness actually does any fact-checking.

    Truly sad, and not worth wasting money on.
