I look forward to this annual update each year. There are a lot of goofy records here, but also some interesting tidbits as well.

This volume begins with "Fire" as a category. Here, we read of the largest gathering of fire breathers ever (269 people got together at Eindhoven in the Netherlands); we see the largest flaming image using candles (the image depicted the logo of the Sandoz company [Pakistan]); most people burned at the stake (133 witches were burned on one day in 1859 near Leipzig, Ger...more

i read this book after reading other books in it's series

this book fits under the category 'a non fiction book'
guinness world records is a book of records that is published yearly about people around the world that have set them and what they have done to hold this record e.g the record of longest tongue is held by stephen tyler and it is 9.8 cm long. although getting into this book sounds easy there are lots of long and complex steps and criteria that you must follow before officially holding a...more

i chose this book because it was sitting in the library and i wanted to read it.

this book fits in my bingo board category as 'a book published in 2010 or 2011'

Guinness world records 2011 is about people and places that hold world records in some weird, wacky and astonishing things. i enjoyed reading this book because i really like seeing all of the records that people hold because some of them like 'the world's longest tongue' are really amazing. the record for the longest tongue is 9.35 cm long...more

I've always enjoyed these books and 2011 was no different.

I enjoyed it. Especially things like the Redneck games. I liked the featured stories, such as the tallest man feature. I also particularly enjoyed the section on comic books, which was written in a comic book style and the sports section, cause I just generally like sports. Guinness World Records has amazing facts from human body to large things. One of the really cool things that I also found is that later in 2011 someone is making a car...more

It's a while since I read one of these and I was disappointed. I felt I was reading a kids book - maybe I was? The only featured records seemed to be ones that were broken that year, regardless how obscure or uninteresting they were. It made the book appear random rather than a reference book. Also the records from around the world at the bottom of each page seemed like a weak afterthought. Still, I learned about Sebastian D'Elcano's first circumnavigation of the Earth which led me to reading An...more

This book fits the " A book written in 2010 or 2011 " blog in my bingo board. I chose this book because it looked very bright and fun to read. This book is about all of the 2011 records being set or broken by people, animals, technology and more amazing things. There are many records in the book which I saw and was amazed by, for e.g the man with the biggest nose, Mehmet Ozyurek who is from Turkey, his nose is 8.8 centimetres!!!!! I recommend this book to anyone because it is very interesting an...more

I read this book because i have read the other ones.
This book is "a book written in 2010" on my bingo board.
This book is about the amazing people of earth that have achieved amazing things. A good example is a person has tongue is 9.35 cm! that is very long. Another record is a person that has tattoo's that cover 99% of his body.
I enjoyed this book because it has lots of records that blew my mind.
Some of the records were disgusting though.
I recommend this book to people who like weird facts.

This was my first time to actually read a Guiness World Records book all the way through. (O.K. I'll admit to skimming the sports records.)

I enjoyed it. Sure lots of inane records, like the first redneck games. I liked the featured stories, such as the tallest man and the Dr. Who feature. I also particularly enjoyed the section on comic books, which was written in a comic book style.

This is one of the rare books on my shelf being enjoyed by the whole family, including the Kenyans.

This book goes under my bingo board as a book written in 2010.
I read this book because heaps of people said it was a really good book and of course for the records.

This book is about random people making weird and wacky records such as how many underwear can a man put on in a minute. This is a very entertaining book and also has pictures.

I like the cricketing page.
I hate the first 10 pages.
I would recommend this book to anyone of any age.

This is chock-full of fun tidbits, but the librarian in me found the lack of index annoying and the table of contents near-impossible to read. It's hard to find a specific record if you're looking for one, but the wacky fonts and layout seem to really appeal to kids. Booktalk points: guy with the record for most records held (p. 86); longest tongue on a dog (p. 150); Mass Participation (p. 100-101 -- Largest Gathering of Smurfs).

Guinness World Records 2011 Is Another Great Book Of Record Setters Around The World Being A New Book Is Published Every Year It Is Extremely Popular Around The World. With 287 Pages It Is A Large Book, And Measures Up To 9 x 1 x 12 Inches So It Is Close To A4 Size. Also This Year They Haven't Added 3D Or A Special Effect To The Book Next Year Will Be A CD E-Book

I loved these books as a child, and even though I have not yet read the 2011 version, I am sure it is just as good as the ones I would read in my youth. These books are a great way to expose children to informational text, mainly because children are fascinated by all the strange, unusual or "cool" content that is in these texts.

Divertido, como siempre. En la versión española, os recomiendo que os paséis por la página web del libro (http://www.libroguinnessworldrecords2...). Si sois auténticos fans de los récords podréis demostrarlo en su concurso. Mis hijos y yo nos lo estamos pasando en grande compitiendo por ver quién sabe más.

The Guiness World Record is about all the new records that were broken in 2011. For example the longest some body can stay in the air when they jump. Another one is who is the tallest person in the world . Also the person who ate the nastiest thing in the world i can wait to read the 2012 version.

Guinness Book of World Records has amazing facts from human body to large things. One of the really cool things that caught my mind is that I found out that hopefully later in 2011 somone is making a car called the BLOOD HOUND that can go over the speed of 1000mph!!!
Tyler Tinker
Was a very enjoyable book, it had a lot of different facts. It had records in sports, such as the colts have the record for most wins in a single decade. There are also records on many other categories. My favorite section was probably the sports and the car sections.
Amer Ibric
This book had a lot of cool facts that if you were to try to remember everyone it would take years to do. This book has no charecters but it was interesting notheraless. i would reccomned this book to anyone who likes to read books that have cool facts
Heather
I bought this for my information and fact loving son. It has lots of interesting tidbits, but he didn't really take to it because he finds several of the visuals disturbing and doesn't want to run into them when paging through. Not for squeamish people.
Nicolle
I have read these for the last few years as my brother loves them to bits. This year I have to say was a dissapointment. Something which I cannot quite put my finger on is not right about it.
Iskreads
It was a good read. It provided a lot of information about the world records from around the world. It was also long enough so it would last a lengthy amount of time.-Kiema.
