I don't really care for this book because it is meant for a younger age group and seems to be very immature. I think this book should be for a younger audience.

One entry of the book says that a guy from Germany built the heaviest motorcycle in the world and it ways over 5 tons and he won 6 different records for his motor cycle. One other entry from this book is that they made the worlds biggest coca cola and mentoes rocket. They used over 300 2 liter bottles of soda and over 12 thousand mentoes.

Lots of odd records dot the pages of the 2009 volume, such as America's tallest person (7' 8"--sounds low to me!); the world's longest crawfish boil (got me what that means by the well known cooking artist Paula Deen); loweat mammalian bo
