Little boy dream of owning a Guinness World Records book. I decide to finally buy one. I love those for the funny facts aspects of some records. Even if i think that it lost something over the last decades, something going down to stupid records, it still has a lot of interesting one when you get in the natural/earth parts, the sports ones, the physical aptitudes or abnormality of it and some more. A good coffee table book that I enjoy exploring! Also very dense, all the pages are packs with rec ...more

ARC kindly received from Pan Macmillan Australia in exchange for an honest review.

This will prove to be another interesting instalment in the Guinness World Records series. There are so many different categories and records for all sorts of things that you wouldn't even think off.

The book itself is huge, but has plenty of pictures to go with the records, and so you can read it bits and pieces at a time, and even pick and choose chapters if you like, a the topics are separated by chap

For my 100th reviewed book, it will be my favorite book of all time, which is just the newest Guinness World Records at the time. This has pictures and I hate reading, so it's perfect. I'd give this 6 stars if I could ...more

Shows all the new records of the year but can get a bit repetitive with all the new records. Do you like my new profile picture of Nu?! 🤣

The GWR is becoming more of fictional stuff with ever increasing proportion of descriptive stuff. The book once used to be all about the records, now its more like a mixture of many a things at the cost of the sole purpose the book was for.

Many fact and records chopped out, and over-filled with garish graphic art illustrations - a mess besides the classic editions of the 70's and 80's. ...more

This book is amazing! It has so many different records. For example, rubrics cube solved in 3.43 sec. How is that possibly! I am still reading it , but it is so interesting I can't stop reading it. In the book there are dangerous and safe records. Like for ex for safe , a granny that is 116 years old and 73 days. For dangerous- a man put on fire from ankle to the top of his head for 5 min 41sec , and survived with no oxygen at all! I will read this book for ages and ages . I hope you liked my re ...more

This new book of Guinness Records 2020 tests your curiosity in unusual beaten records, including those usual - the fastest, the strongest, the tallest or smallest - also the weirdest talents - the longest nails, the which who has more tattoos in the body - but the interesting thing is those new records that are being developed with the beginning of the new decade and that are related to Technology.

The new records highlighted in Technology are from Science and Robotics; as the largest humanoid ve

Another interesting annual from Guinness this year. I used like to get one of these in the winter when I was small I was interested with what it had to offer this year as a novelty. Not usually the kind of thing I read but I advise fact lovers to give it a shot
