Verified Purchase. Well, here it is. The version of the Guinness Book of Records. Much of this is silly and baroque. Still, so much fun! The very first record in this volume? The largest object lifted by helium balloons in this case, a house. The last? The most layered bed-of nails sandwich difficult to explain, but a little different!
In between are myriad records, many of which are of little moment such as most wins of the mashed potato wrestling championships. So, are you interested in world records of a particular sort? Then this book will be enjoyable reading for you. My children enjoyed reading the book young teenager and under It has nice picture and is more of a coffee table book than a dictionary style book that I remembered.
I'm not sure if there is another book out there that is more Webster Thesaurus style with indexed records and paperback size, but would like one if it exists. It also seemed like there were a lot of 'World Records" missing in this version. Pretty book, but disappointing - style over substance. Each year I have to be more creative so that these books are absolutely the last packages handed out - because immediately everything else must stop while the search for one thing or another starts - and all is quiet for a few minutes before laughter and calls of "look on this page" begin!
And each person has to get their own copy of the book - so I usually wrap a large box or gift bag addressed to me, and hold onto it until the very end of all gifting - even though now everyone anticipates the books!
The only reason I have it 2 stars is because of the size of the book. It's the size of your typical novel, that sucks. Makes it hard for a couple people to look at at the same time. Plus makes the pictures and the words hard to see and read. No I don't have eye sight problems. But when it's an award winning picture I want to see it in clear detail and color would have been nice. Most pictures are in black and white, cheaply done and made.
Get the hard back print that is bigger and in color. I have been buying these for my son as a Christmas gift for about 10 years he's 30 now and has come to expect them each year. He really enjoys both reading and collecting the books. I have also found out that I paid too much by making the mistake of buying this book a few of the early years from a bookstore or even Walmart for much more than Amazon charges for it.
I never get my books anywhere but Amazon anymore. When I first started collecting Guinness Books, they were fun and all about the real amazing records. Now they're a bit crazy and focus on the gross things that I barely even consider "a record" like tattoos, piercings, etc. The science and technology sections are still really amazing. Wish they went back to their roots instead of focusing on the "freak-show" aspects of the world.
I have to give this five stars because of the look on my granddaughter's face when she opened the package on Christmas eve. She's eight and she loves odd statistics and she just whooped and hugged the book! Then she started reading us some of the grosser ones. For the right age group, this is a fantastic gift. I would have preferred the great old yellow-covered one with the old-fashioned line drawings that was as distinctive as an almanac.
This one, while a solid quality book with tons of photos and information to keep the reader totally engrossed, looks like any other nice gift book - from the cover, at least. But I'm probably just getting old; my granddaughter loved it and no doubt kept my daughter and son-in-law up all night quoting from it. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. I like the Guinness World Records, its content is interesting and a good read. My review is specific to the e-book version which really doesn't work on a kindle.
You get pages of pictures with a headline, and then pages of description about the pictures you previously saw. For it to work you really need picture, then description, and so on. This is just another book which a publisher quickly converted without any thought to how users of an e-book will use it. I had expected better.
I would recommend you download a sample first. One person found this helpful. So I bought this book as a kind of joke gift for a young family member, placing clues inside leading him to his real gift a PS4 game. What took me by surprise was the fact that he decided he wanted to read the book instead. Maybe a few years out of date but many of the facts are still relevant. Report abuse. He loved last years GWR's, and i know he wanted this years, he was delighted with it and takes it out with him and reads it at every opportunity.
